Re: T400 & T500 Battery size - what sticks out and what doesn't? *EMBEDDED IMAGES*

2008-11-01, 22:44 PM

I notice the 9-cell has an angled design.  Is this only for the T400 or is the design angled for the T500 as well?

 

Thanks

I just got the 9-cell battery for my T500. It does not have an angled design. It sticks straight out.

hmm, these pictures should be on gallery pages. likewise, i didn't know that my t61 14.1" with 6cell will stick out and it kinda pissed me off. don't really like the information lenovo shop provided nowdays, compare to dell they're much more better.

Hi , I just got my new T400 with full optimized hardware configuration but i can't tell if the battery i got is 9 CELL or not. The FUR on the battery is 42T4677 and it's not as big as the one in the pictures you posted here, is it possible that this is 9 CELL ? It's looks more like the upper one in the bottom image in your post.

 

please help me

 thanks

Hello Maximus789

 

If you check Lenovo's FRU Number it will show you Sanyo 6 Cell Battery.

Hi,

my T400 came with the 9cell battery. I wanted something smaller for when i use the AC Adaptor, so i got a 4 Cell battery, which was reported to be flush. 

It does not stick out, but for me it does not 100% match the frame either. On the left and right side it sticks over just a bit. Its no big deal, just a bit ugly (i thought it would fit 100%... I also confirmed that it is the correct FRU (stated in first post). Manufacturer is LGC. Can anyone confirm that its normal? The battery does not seem defective or have an optical defect where it sticks out, so i assume it might just be normal.. 

Would appreciate if people with 4 Cell battery could check if the part next to the power plug and kensington lock (?) sticks out a little.

For those that only managed a few hours with a 6-cell,  what were the settings used?  Were you using the ATI graphics card or the Intel card?  What was the brightness level at?  What WiFi on?

 

I used a Latitude E6400 a few times and, with a 6-cell battery, was able to get 5.5-6 hours with wireless on, ~60% brightness (LED), and using the Intel 4500 graphics.  I would imagine that a T400 on the 4500 graphics would yield similar numbers.

Hi all,

 

What is the battery life of a T400 9 cells battery.

Anyway, I want the battery to flush (hate the battery sticking out). Sticking out is ugly. But a 4 cells battery is not enough for a trip.

 

Thanks.
