X1 Carbon 20A7 battery replacement

Hello,

I've bought battery replacement for my client's X1 Carbon 20A7 on aliexpress.
The orginial battery is 14.8V 3.04Ah/45Wh while the one I was sent is 15.2V 3.29Ah/50Wh
I wanted to know if I can install it instead of the original one.

Thank you

Hi

The battery with FRU p/n 00HW003 is compatible with x1c gen3, not gen2. On your photo it looks like an overlabeled fake by some features. Who does guarantee what'll happend in case this battery connection to the incompatible laptop, x1c gen2 in particular?

Thank you SO MUCH X22 for your fast reply.

I've decided it's too risky and the battery on further inspection seems fake.

I'll return it to the seller and will try to order original battery from the states.

 

Thank you

Here's the battery parts for the X1 Carbon 20A7: 45N1701 or 45N1703. 

Here's a picture of it for reference:

Lenovo no longer sells the part, but I found this vendor that claims to be OEM (with pretty decent feedback as well): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Battery-Lenovo-ThinkPad-New-X1-Carbon-Gen-2-14-45N1701-45N1702-45N17...

 

Hope that helps!
