T460s NVMe SSD Upgrade - Battery Life - OEM and Others

2019-04-26, 17:44 PM

Hi Community,

 

I need some advice. I currently have an aging T460s w/ a 1TB SATA SSD in it. I'd like to upgrade to NVMe. My number one concern is battery life. I need to squeeze as much battery life as I can from the system since I'm a very mobile / remote worker.

 

My understanding is that OEM SSDs provide worse performance but better battery on these laptops. AFAIK, the stock OEM that shipped w/ the T460s was the Samsung PM961 which according to the latest benchmarks I can find should also provide the best battery life.

 

I recently found a great deal on a SM961 1TB. Does anyone know if this was OEM shipped with any Lenovos? I'd like to be able to update the drivers on it.

 

Additionally, the ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro looks to be decent with power consumption as well. Does anyone know if it might be better (from a battery life perspective, not performance) than the SM961?

  

Thanks in advance!

-Ryan

Hi CiscoKid08! Below are the list of tested compatible SATA SSD on your computer with the part number in it. We can't guarantee other models if it will work on your laptop. You can refer to this link: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t460s_frubom_20170628.pdf for the compatible parts.
