W500 cannot use Advanced Ultrabay Battery from z-Series?

2008-10-03, 16:30 PM

I just received my W500 today.  I thought the Optical Drive slot is the same as my previous z60t, and that my Advanced Ultrabay Battery can be used on this new W500.

 

But somehow, it won't slot in completely.   Anyone know if W500 need to be using another model of Bay battery?

They changed the connections inside the ultrabay for SATA drives and moved the power as well, so i think you will need a new battery for the W500.

Thanks for your reply.

 

But I couldn't find any bay battery available on Lenovo website for W500 series.  Are you aware of any?

Is there one for the T500?  They share the same mechanicals for the drive.

The W500 and T500 do have the ability to use an Ultrabay battery and will use the same one.

 

Unfortunately, it appears that the part number for the new Ultrabay battery that will fit into the T500 has not been updated to the sales site....it still lists the older part number (43R9250).

 

The W700, however, does not have the ability to use an Ultrabay battery.

 

Regards

Hi Icepick,

 

How about for the Advanced Ultrabay Battery that I had for my old z60t, could it be used on the W500? 

 

Thanks a lot!
