Re: Battery Loose / Battery wiggle in x230 and LENOVO solutions

2013-06-14, 23:05 PM

Just bought a X230, and my 6 cell battery is a little loose! Rang up support, and they were a bit skeptical and not too helpful - wanted a photo of the problem! So I'm waiting for an email so that I can send them some photos. But I expect them to say it isn't enough of a problem - but let's see.  This is the 6th TP I've owned since 2000, and the first one I've bought new, and never had any such problem. The service I've had from IBM was excellent, that that seems to have disappeared with the move to Lenovo. Also, I hope I'm not jumping the gun, but they asked if I was a business customer, or a private one, and I suspect if I'd been a business one, I'd have been treated differently.

An easy fix is to attach a few small strips (.4X1cm) of sticky velcro tape (just the fabric "loop" side, not the plastic "hooks") in a few areas on the battery or inside the bay. Solves the problem completely. But yeah--c'omon, Lenovo!

Yes. I've just inserted a book-marker and it works. Got higher up with my complaint to Lenovo, but they bogged out saying it was not harming the working of the laptop. I objected that where there are contacts and movement, this will eventually lead to a problem. Then silence.
