I have a T30 that will occasionally lose the time on boot and sometimes throw the "CMOS bad checksum" error so I believe the CMOS needs to be replaced.

I've been looking online but I'm seeing a lot of random "high capacity" or fake listings. Does anyone have a good source to buy a good or the official replacement part?

I would do a search on Ebay using a search term like 'Thinkpad T30 Cmos battery'.

Also if you watch this video at around the 10 second mark the Cmos battery is the round yellow thing under the main battery. It looks like you can replace it without dismantling anything.
