I have a question about my thinkpad yoga s3 14. My computer needs a new battery so i went on the lenovo website and i didn't find a battery replacement for my model. So i went to amazon and bought one.
When i received it and installed it i had this message. The battery is not a genuine battery and won't charge. And indeed it doesn't charge at all.
So i have two questions : Where can i find a genuine battery ?
And is there a way to avoid this bios limitation ?

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
As I understand that you have query regarding battery which you have purchased from Amazon and that is not getting charge in your ThinkPad Yoga 14.
I don't think so that is a genuine battery so its not working obvious.
You can purchase the genuine battery from here. And also avoid posting Serial Number overhere
I hope the above information helped you.

Hello i removed the serial number on my title but seems it's still in ur answer title. Thanks anyway for ur answer, but i didn't find my battery in the link page u gave me. Now a message to LEnovo : Im really sad thinkpad turned into a politic like that. I don't know what to do now for having a battery on a only "two years laptop model" its crazy. As many of linux user i will now go to to system76 laptop. There was a time we were owning completely our machines now its only money money money... Im sad aso cauz before i was reccomending thinkpad to anyone and now i'm forced to stop. Can u imagine if a student or a non-riche person buy a second hand yoga S3 computer and just want to change battery to make it usable again ?
