T470 72Whr 61++ battery 4X50M08812 - is there an issue with it?

From the UK Lenovo's system has let me order the above battery twice, then a few days later sent me an email cancelling the order.  Now the item has vanished from the website, as if it never existed.

 

I'm annoyed with myself that I chose the flush fitting 61 3cell battery when ordering the machine, adding the 61++ as an additional item.   One of the reasons for choosing T470 was its long run-time on battery.

 

Anyine know what's going on with this battery?  I've asked Lenovo without anything more illuminating that "it's not available".  Yet it's on Lenovo's US website - delivery 1-3 days!

I'm having a related issue: just ordered a T470 with the slim 3 cell and wanted an additional 6 cell 72Wh battery (61++), which isn't available on the UK or Irish website as an accessory, yet you can configure the laptop with one of these. I was advised through the online chat to try their parts resellers for my second battery. I believe the part number is either 01AV427 (available 03rd Jan 18) or 01AV428 (available 10th Nov 17). Might be worth a phone call to them, I'll be ordering one as soon as my 470 arrives by the sound of it!

For part numbers I used: pcsupport.lenovo.com

And the reseller is: flexcommunityesales.force.com/LenovoEsales

They seem to have a base in the UK so hopefully you can get a straight answer on the stated availability date. Perhaps it will become available on the Lenovo site on the 10th Nov...

Thase p/n's are correct - first one is made by Panasonic and second one by LG.   I saw them mentioned a few months ago in another thread.

 

I don't still understand the availability issue in Europe when the 72wh battery is clearly available elsewhere.  Not at all happy with Lenovo over this.
