Lenovo T470 Battery wiggle

2019-03-10, 23:37 PM

Dear Lenovo Community,

 

I recently replaced my t470's external battery pack. However, the new battery pack does not sit flush/snug in the battery tray. It has a slight wiggle/play of about 1mm-2mm. The battery charges normally and there is no loose connection at the contact points. I wanted to check with anyone here if they faced similar quirks? My concern is: the wiggle/play should not get to the point where the battery loses connection with the laptop.

 

Thanks in advance.

Did you buy the battery direct;y from Lenovo?  There are a lot of fakes and afttermarket batteries often/usually don't fit well.

Yes, I did but it from Lenovo after entering my system serial number. Could it be due to the tolerances? My previous battery pack was from a different manufacturer than the one that I got as a replacement.
