Battery for T480?

2018-06-25, 16:49 PM

My T480 came with a battery that doesn't last long but also seems to have room for an additional battery.  Could someone direct me where to purchase the additional battery?  Lenovo support/chat/etc doesn't seem to want to help me at all, despite email requests, trying to enter chat (on hold for 45 minutes now) etc.

 

Thank you!

The T480 should have 2 batteries.  An internal and an external at the rear. If you've received a system w/o the ext. battery than you should contact the vendor.

The internal battery is optional.  The laptop's MT-M should be usable to determine whether there should be an internal battery present.  If the external battery is missing, something is very wrong.

Padon the question, but... IIRC these things ship with the external battery packaged separately - in the same box, but not installed in the laptop.

 

Any chance it's hiding in the packaging somewhere?  The way I read the base spec, there should always be an external battery.

The internal battery is optional. 


I know, but are such systems really available for the 'normal' user? I guess this might be a requirement for special environments.
