my x220 has type 29 battery and my x230 has type 44 battery
so I need the FRU numbers for the 4, 6 and 9 cell batteries
any generic batteries that work on both machines?

Do it well, worse becomes itself

Seems that Lenovo is geting a little hardnosed with hardware whitelists.
It has more to do with Li-ion battery safety.
Rather important, IMO.

I have never had problems with generic batteries, they seem to be ok and I have used several for old machines.
I tend to use higher capacity batteries mostly for library research work were plugs may be in short supply.
I even went to the extreme of a bluetooth keyboard so I could use my iPhone when the laptop battery died. Its amusing using a phone for typing up reasech papers.
