T480 User Guide does not mention battery hot swap

2018-09-23, 13:37 PM

The T480_UserGuide_EN.pdf does not mention hot-swapping the removable battery, or how the Power Bridge works.


I would like to know things like:

1) Should the internal battery be above some charge threshold before hot swapping the removable battery?

2) Is it safe to hot swap on AC power?

3) Can the machine be used on only the internal battery (removable battery compartment empty)?


Shouldn't this sort of thing be in the User Guide?


Confusingly, page 101 says that the built-in battery must be disabled and the machine turned off and disconnected from any power sources before the external battery is removed.


Have I missed something?
