    Probably not, you have to dismantle the laptop somewhat to get to the battery :-



    Plus not sure Lenovo even make a 'better' battery. I assume you meant a higher capacity battery ?

    It says it is.

    Take particular note of the advice about conditioning any new battery. It IS very important.

    As Dave said it should work ok.

    Seems quite expensive though, I would look on Ebay to see the prices there.

    But DO be careful what you buy from Ebay as batteries are very often cheap "knock offs" that do not perform well at all. I've been caught recently and I thought it was a reputable supplier.
    Make sure you buy one locally as well because many postal services will not let you (as an individual) send batteries back through them and a courier will cost more than the battery.

    ok, then just two final questions?

    what sellers do you recommend?, i prefer to spent little and get something good

    and second the battery it has now its a 4 Cell 54 Watt Hour Lithium-Ion, would the one i showed in the link have a considerable increase in battery life ? if not what batteries or what specifications you recommend?

    thanks for your responses by the way

    Use google or ebay or some other place you can look for a good local battery supplier.
    I but mine from a large laptop battery maker I worked for some years ago.
    You need a place with local outlet to you.
    I would spend a little more for a decent make, but not for a Lenovo branded one as you pay for the name.

    The battery in your link is rated as 7400mAh compared with the one you have already which is rated 54Wh.

    I checked how to covert the Wh to mAh and it's Wh/Voltage x 1000 = mAh which works out as 54/7.4 x 1000 = 7297mAh so there's hardly any difference !

    So if my figures are correct there's no point in buying that battery or another with a similar rating.

    I missed the fact that it is an internally fitted one so may be difficult to buy a higher capacity that will fit.
