Battery 27++ (9 cell slice)

[ Edited ]


I've been searching the web for pictures of the T420/T520 with a Battery 27++ (9 cell slice) installed but curiously I haven't found any. I presume that the laptop becomes somewhat raised in the back, right?

Also, is it possible to use this battery with a regular 9 cell battery or just with the 6 cell one?

Re: Battery 27++ (9 cell slice)

I have the upgrade 9 cell battery. This model unlike other OEM's sticks out the back one  row of cells which is about an inch. I would have though it would be raised as well but it isn't. Now if there is another battery pack I don't know for certain.


I hope that helps.

The slice raises the rear of the laptop but does not protrude from the rear so will fit in a sleeve or case without concern.
The battery is managed well within the system and I have run for 11 hours without a charge, you can only use it with the 6 cell due to size.
The raise is about 1"
