I have a Thinkpad X-220 laptop, model 4286-cto. I have two chargers: the 42T4418 (65W) and the 42T4430(90W). Can you please advise as to which batteries (36305 4 cell, 36306 6 cell, 36307 9 cell) are compatible with these chargers? I still have the original battery and I am ready to replace it. I want to make sure that I don't have any issues between the battery I choose and the chargers I own. Thanks much!

Welcome to the forum!
Any charger will work with any battery. I used both type of chargers with several 6 cell and 9 cell batteries for my three X220 without any issue.

Thank you. But, if all chargers are compatible with all battery options, why does the Lenovo website state that some batteries are compatible with the charger Model 40Y7625 and some are not?

No clue to be honest, I'm combining 65W and 90W chargers with different batteries in all my Thinkpads from the x60 generation up to my T430 (including all X/T/W//Z models inbetween) , never had an issue...
