    Lenovo T500 replacement battery and taking a spare one on a place

    My dad has an old Lenovo T500 laptop where the battery is dying, as Im headed on a business trip I was thinking of stopping for a few days back home and he wants me to bring a new battery for him

    two questions

    1. Where to get an old Lenovo T500 battery replacement
    2. I will be carrying my own lap top on a business trip, can I carry an additional laptop battery with me, both as hand carry as I hate checking in my luggage or do I have no choice but to hand carry one and checking in the other with my luggage.

    Cheers for the info

    I think that you have to hand carry loose batteries- it's checking them in that's a problem.

    These guys can replace the dying cells in the T500 battery- I believe that Thinkpad always use standard cylindrical Li cells as opposed to LiPo so it should be piss easy.

    Or as suggested, contact Lenovo- they have a couple of repair centres and might have stock (I know they carry batteries for current models, not sure about older ones).

    Is your keyboard broken? Your font is too normal for me to read.

    You can ask battery collection they do have many old model batteries. I bought my macbook battery from there although it only worked for 6 months, so not very sure about battery quality for PC laptops. No harm in checking it out.
