Total waste of money. Don't waste your time! 04/01/2009
This review is from: ThinkPad 08K8190 Ultrabay Slim Li-Polymer Battery
Slim, fits where the DVD normally stays without added bulk although a bit heavier then the DVD drive. Adds about an hour on an optimized T60P, the hour that you always need.
This is only a 3 cell battery providing very little extra time (about an hour WHEN NEW, ONLY WHEN NEW). Comparing to the 9 cell extended battery that I already have on the T60P, this provides a third of that. Problem is that this battery quickly looses its maximum capacity and within less than a year and about 100 cycle charges you get less than 60% the capacity. The battery now is labeled as in "fair condition". By comparison the main extended 9-cell battery with more charge cycles lost only about 10% of capacity in about 18 months. I'd like to add here that the main extended battery has cells made by Panasonic while this 3-cell battery has cells made by SONY.
If you are the kind of person who does everything on the "last drop of juice" this might save your behind, otherwise this battery quickly turns into a paper weight.
