I recently purchased an x230 and everything is perfect but the battery fit.  It moves up and down slightly.  I know there are many posts in the lenovo forums for all different models that the battery fits lose in "x" model and solutions of putting paper / foam / tape to make the battery fit tighter.   What I'm wondering is if anyone has actually had the problem fixed by lenovo.  I've read a few posts where a user has had the base piece of the case replaced (where the battery fit's into) and that has solved the problem.  I'm still within my return period on my x230 and am awaiting a call back from tech support to see if there is anything they will do but I don't think I will keep it if they can't fix it.   I'm just curious has anyone actually had luck by replacing the base piece.  From what i've read a replacement battery hasn't worked for anyone.  Also, I know everyone says its by design for thermal purposes but I haven't actually seen any official confirmation of this from lenovo.   Thanks.  

A:Battery Loose / Battery wiggle in x230 and LENOVO ...

As a follow up, I'm just curious if this is a widespread issue?  Anyone have loose battery in their x230 / x220?  I'm not talking about it falling out...but just a few millimeters of wiggle room.  Basically when i pick mine up or place it down, I can feel / hear the battery move.  I'm just trying to get an idea if this is a real problem or thats just how every thinkpad is.  I called support and they are sending someone to replace the base panel and we'll see if that fixes it.  I'll update this post when it get's replaced.   Edit* I also asked the lenovo support rep if they had heard of this issue and they said no, never.  I don't see how this is possible as if you do a google search for thinkpad loose battery there are many results.

Hallo, I have a problem with my 3 yo X230 where the battery is fast empty, only 20 minutes from full charging although I only open 1 program (Excel/word/etc.). Should I change the battery ? In lenovoquickpick.com, the battery seems for type X230T (Part number: 0A36317). Can it be used for X230 ? From the picture shown in web, it is different from the battery installed in my laptop (4 cells). Now I am in Germany and quit difficult to find Lenovo people who can speak English well. Thank you

My X230 powers down when I try to operate it with a battery connected.  I've tried replacing the battery, but it continues to power down even with the replacement.  I tried changing the power management settings to not shut down while plugged in if the battery gets critically low, but that didn't fix the problem either.  It doesn't shut down when I run it on just AC power without a battery plugged in.  This would be fine, but I need to run a BIOS update to fix a different issue I'm having, and I can't do that until I have a full battery connected that isn't going to cause it to shut down during the update.

Hi, my x230 shuts down instantly when the battery is at 25-30% (around 10Wh).I tried performing battery gauge reset with no improvements, but I have the suspect that it doesn't run the full charge-discharge-charge cycle since it shuts down (I didn't attend the full cycle so I'm not sure).I had a wrong "full charge capacity" reading in power manager which I solved switching charge mode in Battery Maintenance from "always full charge" to "optimize for battery health".The battery firmware update tool is not suggesting an update, so I'm apparently out of options.  Thanks in advance for any help

Hi,The Power Manager settings as well as the battery parameters are stored in the registry. So if PM could be removed at all (!) those parameters should be reset. But I hope it's not a single solution.I'm not sure will it help or no, but you might perform the following steps:- PM menu (mouse right click on the battery icon), "Remove and Replace Battery" item,- battery reset.Also let me give you another advice: change the battery charge thresholds for its healthy and lifespan, do not charge it fully.

The screen is turn off, the WIFI symbol still bright, the power button light still blink and the fan still spining. i need to force shutdown by pressing the power button for 10 sec to turn everything off. On the other hand, if i take the battery off, pluged the power cord, everything will work fine. I can shutdown, hibernate and sleep. I used Lenovo Service Bridge to scan and install the lastest version of every driver. I also flashed the BIOS to lastest version.

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned.  Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. I've done so, be it doesn't seem to have helped. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode.  At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops.  Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

If it was purchased from Dell, it's genuine.  Otherwise, ask the seller.  That product ID's date code indicates the battery was built 2012 -- so if it is original Dell, it's been sitting on a shelf for a while - or is used.

Hi all - I recently purchased what I believed to be a genuine 44++ Lenovo 9 cell battery, however a few things have caused me to suspect it might not be genuine. When it arrived the sticker was loose as shown in one of the photos below, I thought Lenovo serial numbers had to be 22 characters and this only has 20?  The batteries I can see under the loose sticker I believe are the correct type though for the model? So perhaps the sticker was just loose and the serial number is fine and I'm worrying over nothing. Any ideas anyone? I tried to contact Lenovo on Facebook but had no response, can't find a support email address and can't raise a new ticket as I don't have a working serial number to use. Thanks Tim 

A:Bought as genuine new, possible fake 44+ battery

This is a fake battery with no doubt. In general, we don't want to give public details why it's fake, so producers could possibly fix issues after.Anyway, from my recent experience, all of these are using LG or Samsung cells which are actually good and durable. Are you satisfied with battery life?If you purchased it on eBay, I advise you to contact the seller and ask for a full refund, especially if it was advertised as "genuine".In that way, after significant amount of refunds for "genuine" batteries, maybe we can impact that market.
