T530 Thinkpad will not accept a genuine Lenovo extended battery

Good day

 

The T530 will not accept a replacement non-genuine Lenovo battery, I am aware of this. However, I have acquired a 2nd-hand extended battery that IS a genuine Lenovo battery, and when my T530 boots up, it still complains that the battery is not authorised and will not charge. Sure enough, it does not charge.

 

Does anyone know why this would be? The battery is a 8.4 Ah, 94Wh. FRU 42T4969 ASM 42T4802, registered Lenovo product.

 

Many thanks, Ian

Hello

The battery with FRU p/n 42T4969 belongs 55++ battery series. This series isn't compatible with T530 and any Lenovo laptops with battery HW autentification feature as this series doesn't have such capabilities. It's a reason neither this battery nor non-geniun Lenovo batteries don't capable to work (to be charged) in your T530 laptop.

Hi there, many thanks for the explanation - I see there is a large '55+' label on the battery. What should I be looking for on the battery that will indicate a compatible battery?

You'e welcome.

There is a lot of T530 compatile batteries, 70+ series (6 cell) and 70++ series (9 cell), as well 28++ series (9 cell, slice) in the parts list.

FRU 45N1001 - SANYO Nozomi 6cell
45N1003 - Panasonic Nozomi 6cell
45N1005 - LGC Nozomi 6cell
45N1007 - SANYO Nozomi 9cell
45N1011 - LGC Nozomi 9cell
45N1013 - SANYO Nozomi 6cell-3yrs
45N1105 - Nozomi 6cell /2200mA
45N1107 - Nozomi 6cell /2200mA
45N1173 - Panasonic 9c,2.9Ah,LiIon

Be very (!) watchful if you'll decide to purchase the battery not from Lenovo official store. There is numerous faked batteries in the aftermarket (ebay, ali etc.) w/out HW authentification feature, even with Lenovo FRU p/n and genuine-like labeles. There was a lot of cases such faked batteries related here in the forum. In most cases it's possible to recognize the faked battery by its labels and, it's desirable, by information Lenovo Power Manager provides.

So, demand from the seller warranty the battery is Lenovo genuine, the battery labels photos in your (!) package, with capability to return it in case of incompatibility troubles.

Re: T530 Thinkpad will not accept a genuine Lenovo extended battery

Hi, and thank you.  I am having the same problem.  T530 Thinkpad, replacement batter is FRU P/N 45N1007, ASM P/N 45N1006.  Tried resetting battery controllers, even reinstalled power management drivers.  Battery worked just fine for over a year, and one week after warranty went out this happens.  Very frustrated!  Thank you for any help you can provide.
