Do all T410s ThinkPads come with a 6-cell battery that sticks out ?

2010-05-03, 7:02 AM

I remember reading somewhere that the 6-cell battery sticks out the side of the T410s making it awkward in appearance and in handling.  Is that still true?  If so, do they have something like a 4-cell that stays flush with the chassis?  I could not find this as an option during the online configuration nor is it listed as an an available accessory for the T410s.

s2kdriver80, I have a T400s, and the six cell battery is flush. From the pictures I've seen, the T410s chassis is basically the same as the T400s, so the six cell battery should also be flush within the chassis. Cheers, RocketDude

My T410 has a 4-cell and is flush.  I think it was the default on the configurator I used, or at least it was an obvious option, because I didn't have to search for it.  I don't know if the 6-cell sticks out or not.

 

I ordered using the "employee" (retired) system in the US at the end of March.  Don't know if that is relevant or not.  I'd try calling sales if you decide you want one.

 

Good luck,

 

Dan
