Yoga 500 14-IBD battery replacement

Hello everyone. I have a yoga 500 with a battery of 30wh but I want to replace it with 45wh version of it because right now the battery life sucks. I'd like to know if it is possible and if it voids warranty. If it is possible how can I do it? Thanks!

Hi Sebastiano_z

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Using the model type 80N4 for Lenovo Yoga 500-14IBD, the possible 45 Whr battery shows as:

FRU part 5B10G78611 Tesla SP/A L14M3P21 11.1V45Wh3cell bty

Hardware manual FRU list item 10 page 85.

 

It should not void the warranty in general as long as no parts get damaged during and after upgrades.

Best to call in technical support for verification on your region.

Similar discussion here on warranty during upgrades.

Keep the original battery as it still holds warranty with the system, the newwer battery would have its own warranty.

 

Always check on return options when purchasing as a good habit.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 500 14-IBD battery replacement

HI is it OK for my 80n4 which has the l14m2p21 30w 7.4v battery to upgrade to l14m3p21 45w which is 11.1v.  Would there be an issue with the 11.1v or is that only because it is a more powerful battery.?

 

Please confirm or if there is a more powerful battery as the l14m2p21 is too weak.

 

Thanks 

Daniel

Re: Yoga 500 14-IBD battery replacement

Hi Sebastiano_z,

 

Greetings.

 

Using model type 80N4 from the parts lookup page shows battery part number 5B10J40590 Tesla LG L14L3P21 11.1V45Wh3cell bty . Machine type is not as specific as the using the serial number or machine model number from the parts lookup page so we cannot fully guarantee compatibility other than the battery part number that came with the machine.
