Lenovo T430S 3rd party battery

I've recently purchased a used Lenovo T430s. The battery appears to be dead, so I purchased an EBK battery from Amazon. The EBK battery appears to work fine as long as the charger is not plugged in. Shortly after the charger is plugged in the system reboots. I've read that Lenovo laptops will not charge a 3rd party battery. Is this correct?

At this point in time I can't be sure that the charging system in the laptop is functioning correctly. Is there a utility that will test the laptops charging system?

 

Thank you,

Alan

Yes, IvyBridge and newer laptops have HW authentication features to prevent of using non authorized batteries.

Such battery can't be charged in the laptop. There are no legit sw ways to resolve this feature.

In order to test the ACPI subsystem you need the proper battery.

Thank you for confirming this. I will return the 3rd party battery and purchase a Lenovo battery.
