X230 upgraded battery not detected.

2020-05-20, 3:09 AM

I recently got a 9cell battery for my X230 but it isn't being recognized by the system. I have followed multiple solutions on this forum but I was unable to resolve my issue.


My OS : Parrot OS which is a Debian distro


Things that I have tried: 


1.  Shutting down, removing battery, starting, shutting down again, putting battery back in, starting (didn't work)

2.  Checked if there is a difference in Voltage, there isn't.

3.  Updated acpi and ran but couldn't make a difference.

4.   Ran lshw, battery is not indicated.


The battery is powering my laptop atm but it won't charge since it isn't recognized by the system. Can anyone help?
