Q: 6 Cell battery for Thinkpad T460

Hello,I'm looking to get a external 6cell battery for the Thinkpad T460. I cant seem to find one on the Lenovo website. I looked at other computer store websites but I cant find a 6cell battery for T460.I see ones for T440 or T450 but nothing for T460.Will the batteries for T440 or T450 work for T460?Also, am I correct in thinking that the battey with code'0C52862' will work for the T460? Thanks in advance,Jason

I recently purchased a T460 with an Ultradock 90w and when the notebook is docked it only shows battery 1 (internal) as charging. Battery 2 is not being used but it is not charging either and it is very very slowly discharging (about 3% over the last few days). If I plug the Thinkpad into its normal power supply outside of the dock both batteries charge (one at a time). Is this normal behavior or is there something wrong with my dock?

Can anyone help me? Please. I've been having a hard time with my laptop, yesterday it works perfectly just fine. And then I tried charging it, it's not charging until the battery completely drains. So now it won't turn on, everytime I plug in the charger the power button just keeps blinking yellow light. I've tried removing the battery and pressing the power button for 30 secs then reapplying the battery back and the charger back but still nothing's happening. Please help me.

Hi all, I wondered if any others have news or any hints on how to get this flat battery for the Thinkpad T470 etc.When I bought my Thinkpad I planned on getting one, but several of my orders were canceled a week after they got my money because of "fulfillment error".Also, so far I have not found a reseller in the UK that can actually deliver these. Is the battery discontinued ?Is there any replacement that is the same small size as the 3-cell battery? Or will all T470 have to live with the clunky 61+ and 61++ Any help or information is appreciated, I would really appreciate my T470 having a slim battery dress one day.Best,Daniel

My employer has provided me with a brand new Lenovo T460 ThinkPad along with a docking station and two Thinkvision screens. I have connected the laptop to the docking station and used the Intel graphics properties to extend my display to my two screens (I keep the laptop shut). However, when i disconnect my laptop from the docking station so that I can use it at home, I no longer have anything displayed on the laptop, as if it won't revert back to the laptop display. Is there somewhere i can alter the settings to correct this?? Thanks

Hi all, I was working on my laptop this morning and it suddenly died (screen went black, all indicator lights off). No warning indications came up before it died. It was plugged into the AC adapter with full battery. When I pressed the power button to restart it, nothing happened--no lights, no fan, no screen activity. The red light in the "i" of "ThinkPad" on the back of the screen won't come on, even when the AC adapter is plugged in. The laptop was on top of a blanket so I thought maybe it overheated, but the bottom of the laptop and the battery itself weren't hot. I removed the battery and tried a number of strategies I saw online: 1) pressed power button 10 times at 1-sec intervals, then held for 30 seconds, 2) pressed power button for 20 seconds, 3) pressed button for 30 seconds. I removed the battery and tried to turn on the machine between each strategy. I've tried the emergency reset button underneath the touchpad. I've removed the battery and tried the AC adapter only, tried with the battery with and without AC adapter.  I've had the laptop since August 2016 with no problems. No updates installed within the past few days. Help is very much appreciated!!!!Thank you!

Hoping someone can help me with my issue. My Thinkpad T460 that I bought last October (nearly a year now) won't turn on. It randomly shut off on me a few days ago while casually surfing the web. No warning, no nothing. Every time I try to turn on my laptop, the screen will quickly flicker once, the light indicators for certain keys will flicker once (mute mic key and Caps lock key for example), the fan will turn on for half a second before stopping, and the power led will blink. This would all happen at the same time obviously, as if it's the laptop is trying to run, but fails to do so. Plugged in to the AC, the power led would blink 2 times. I've tried disconnecting the external battery, tried pressing the tiny reset button, but still won't work. Hoping someone can help! Thanks

Could be disk.  Could be memory.  Could be something like the power button.  If you bought it nearly a year ago, you are probably still under warranty.  Call support.  In US, it is 1-800-426-7378

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery? Any advice appreciated!

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

Hello, I am starting a new job where I will b working from home. Before my orientation, I purchased two monitors for my home office. I am currently at my orientation for this week and was just provided my work laptop (ThinkPad T460). My question is: what docking station or stations are available for me to purchase where I can plug my two monitors into the station and be able to use both the monitors AND laptop at the same time. I am not the most techy person, so you may have to dumb down your responses. I've read several reviews on Lenovo docking stations and some people are saying their monitors will only work with the laptop shut or if the laptop is open then only one of the monitors will work. I want both monitors AND the laptop to be able to be used at the same time. Are you able to point me in the right direction to the right docking station or docking stations that would allow me to accomplish this for my home office? Thank you very much in advance!

The instructions/video for removing and replacing the keyboard are quite good. However, I had the following issue when replacing the keyboard. The instructions say to be in tablet mode when sliding the keyboard back into position. Would this not mean that the keys should be in the recessed position when putting the keyboard back in? That way, when you swing the lid back to normal laptop use, the keys will move become "unrecessed" again. Without this, after I replace the keyboard, I find that the lid cannot be closed any longer. In other words the sequence I am experiencing is this:To remove keyboard, move laptop into tablet position.

Someone needs to get a new battery for a very old laptop they have. The battery doesn't work so they have to have it plugged all the time otherwise it wouldn't work. Laptop is 15.6 and sort of heavy but the thing is they never take the laptop outside the house. It will mainly be used on one floor in the house.


100% of the time the laptop is used in the kitchen area where there is a table where its connected using a charger to the wall. Thus if the person had a working battery, they could carry it around the house even though the laptop will stay in one place usually. However because right now the battery doesn't work, it does but it goes out very fast less than 1 minute, they need a new battery.


Is it better to get a 6 cell or 9 cell battery? The laptop will be used at home 100 percent. The thing is this person said if 9 cell last longer, get it. However, im sure 9 cell batteries make the laptop much heavier and has that back part sticking out right? I know this isn't a big deal if you going to stay inside but wouldn't it be a problem/annoyance if you have the laptop on yourself when on the sofa? Does the 9 cell would be really heavy on an already heavy 15.6' laptop?


Also 6 cell batteries last for around 2 hours i believe. How many hours does a 9 cell last for usually?


The thing is majority of the time the laptop will be plugged in but its very annoying at the moment as the laptop has to be connected 100 percent of the time since the battery is no good at... Read more

A:6 Cell Vs 9 Cell Battery for Laptop?

It's a piece of hardware so you're in the right area.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 that has a 48WattHour battery. A 9-cell battery would give longer working time when on battery-only so if it is offered and the price is affordable I'd get it.

As for physically working, it may lift the back edge of the Notebook higher but that's not a problem, usually have rubber feet on them. I find that type of rise is actually easier for typing as most Desktop keyboards have feet to raise the back edge, fingers seem to 'flow' better.
