T460p - Is there power bridge or not?

2017-08-23, 2:11 AM

I have looked high and low and I cannot definitively find whether or not my late 2016 T460p does/does not or is/is not supposed to have an internal battery.

 

I bought this laptop in late December 2016, and I am rather confident I read somewhere it is supposed to have it. However, everytime I remove the swappable battery, the laptop shuts off, and I have been receiving awful battery life.

 

Anyway, with no external battery put in, the laptop thinks there is no battery; clearly my machine does not have an internal battery (or at least not one that works). I'm simply wondering if I am even supposed to have one and if so how I can get it fixed. Thanks!

 

 

Solved! See the solution

No.  T460 and T460s can have an optional internal battery.  T460p does not.
