X230 Not recognizing 4Cell Battery

2015-01-05, 18:50 PM

P/N 0A36305

FRU: 45N1019


Laptop: X230

MT: 2330-A59


4 Cell battery is not being recognized. This is the battery Lenovo identifies as the proper battery. I've tried a 2nd 4 Cell with the same result. I tried both batteries in another X230 with the exact same result.

Have you managed to solve the issue? I bought a legitimate genuine "44" 4-cell battery for my X230 from local Lenovo dealer, and it's not recognizable in my system. Power Manager says "The battery is not detected. Try reinstalling or recharging the battery to solve the problem" I tried in another X230, which belongs to my gf. Still same problem.
Machine: Lenovo X230 (type 2325-78G)
Battery: FRU: 45N1019
Help please.

x230 machines were made about 6 years ago.  Check the manufacture dates on the batteries.  It may be that they are never-used but were made several years ago.  Lithium batteries do not improve by sitting on a shelf.
