thinkpad t460 t series 2nd battery issue.

2021-06-02, 0:58 AM

I got a 6 cell battery that I got off of Lenovo official Amazon page and not once have I gotten it to work it properly .  

I did all the variations of removing both batteries (internal and external 6 cell) and uninstalling and disabling the hardware through device manager and any other troubleshooting approaches.

The  first battery I had is detected  no problem but the second one can not be detected even when I disconnect the first one and unplug the charger.
