T480- CANNOT find compatible external battery

2018-05-22, 2:22 AM

Hello Lenovo community,


I need assistance regarding finding compatible external batteries for the T480.


So far I have found 2 compatible T480 external batteries :


(1) https://www3.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories-and-monitors/chargers-and-batteries/batteries/BATT-BO-ThinkPad-Battery-61/p/4X50M08810


(2) The second battery is the 72 watts also called "61++" However, after contacting chat support, we found that the battery was not listed. Only the 24 watts were listed. If anyone is searching for the part number for the 72 watts' battery, the number is "4X50M08812"


I am posting to save other "T480" buyers' time if they are having an issue finding the 24 and 72 watts' batteries.


Lastly, if anyone comes across other  external batteries that are compatible with the T480 that I have missed, please help me us out by adding to this post.
