Thinkpad Battery



Hello,

I have a damaged T60 Thinkpad battery. The interesting thing is that the cells are perfectly fine, but the regulating circuitry has a burnt chip. I can repair the battery by swapping out the regulating circuitry, which is what I am looking for. Most batteries fail because of bad cells, and the circuitry remains intact.

I was wondering if anyone on the board has an old thinkpad battery that failed because of the cells and is willing to give it away. I believe this battery is common amongst most of the thinkpad T series (T5x, T6x, T5xx).

The FRU P/N is: 92P1137

Thanks


Battery looks like this (label in picture not OEM):

I have a FRU P/N: 92P1089. If that works for you then it's yours. I'm in Mississauga and you can PM me for a number.

Prices listed are USD - Call me at the office tomorrow (direct line is 905-829-6514) if you want them - your price will be in CAD and cheaper (will give you employee rate)

Meh, the money would have been worth it... 5-6+ hrs run time on a charge for an extended. That's how I see it anyway.

^^ Damn! I wish I knew that before I bought my 6600mAh....

Either way I think my friend is looking for an extended for his T60 as well... I'll let him know.

$65 CAD for the 6 cell - $98 CAD for the 9 cell - New sealed Lenovo original.

Open box ones in stock as well.

$78 for 9 cell $51 for 6 cell.

For the small difference - I'd go new...
