I have two batteries for my T500, both 6 cells, and both in good health acording the lenovo power manager
but, the cruel reality, is that they do not last more than 10 minutes, they suddenly jump from 75 or 80 % to a minimum of 5 - 10% of power, and couple of minutes later makes my pc powerless. Even charging give a funny measures, estay for long time in loger percentages, and then it goes upp fast and reach 99/100.
They both have like 2 years, I have been using them alternativelly, one have 246 cicles, the other 211, capacity of 39.31 (out of 56.18) and 41,15 (out of 56.18 too)
I know they are wear out to some extend, but shouldn't they last a little MUCH longer?
Come'on, they are original Lenovo (manufactured by Sony) batteries.
Is anything I can do beside buying new ones?

Indeed I did it,
and as you think, it didn't help.
Is that normal, that after two years * half time, +200 cicles, baterries are to be replace, even the power manager says "good health"?
(I wonder what's for power manager...)

Be happy you got that much use out of them! My first T400 battery only lasted for about 18 months.
