28++ w530 battery to t480 adapter

2020-02-11, 22:59 PM

Hi I ordered a w530 and 28++  11.1v 96wh battery and didn't get the w530 just the battery. Ended up with a t480 with an 11.46v 24wh battery.  Is there any kind of cable adapter so I could use the big battery with the t480?

 

Thanks

The battery for the T480 does not look even remotely like the battery for the W530, so I dont think there is any way a W530 battery would ever fit into a T480, and I doubt anyone would try to design an adapter to do so.     

 

You can get a larger capacity 6 cell 72Wh battery (FRU P/N:01AV492) for the T480, so perhaps you can do an exchange.

 

 

Cheers,

The batteries in modern computers are not like the batteries in flashlights.  They have sophisticated circuit boards that communicate with power circuitry in the laptops. The batteries from a w530 cannot be made to be compatible
