I need two quality replacement parts for my trusty L520 ThinkPad.
I need a battery FRU 45N1001 and I also need a keyboard, both of which appear to be N/A on the Lenovo official site.
I did replace the battery once with what I thought was a quality unit only to find the notebook battery life was less than one hour on full charge. The original 57Wh battery that came with the notebook had a 6 hour lifespan.
Does anyone have a site that sells quality ThinkPad replacement parts as the battery and keyboard for this notebook seem to be N/A from Lenovo?
I really like this notebook and it has been very reliable.

You can buy from Encompass. They sell oem parts for Lenovo. I believe they took over for IBM. I know that 45N1005 is not the part you are asking for but its listed as the substitute part. See below 2 links. Please confirm compatability yourself. I am just basing it on what the parts site shows. Also what is your exact MTM? Are you looking for a English keyboard?
