  • Mga repack ba mga yun sir o refurbished?


    i dunno kung gumagawa pa din ang lenovo ng brand new batts para sa t400.

    i would assume na replica / replacement / non-orig lenovo battery. better bring your laptop and check cycle counts nung battery. here's sample from my x220 -

    +++ ThinkPad Battery Status: BAT0 (Main / Internal)
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/manufacturer = SANYO
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/model = 42T4940
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/manufacture_date = 2011-11-15
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/first_use_date = 2012-09-06
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/cycle_count = 154
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/design_capacity = 93240 [mWh]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/last_full_capacity = 70600 [mWh]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/remaining_capacity = 41300 [mWh]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/remaining_percent = 58 [%]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/remaining_running_time_now = 336 [min]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/remaining_charging_time = not_charging [min]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/power_now = -10255 [mW]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/power_avg = -8945 [mW]
    /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/state = discharging

    tpacpi-bat.BAT0.startThreshold = 96 [%]
    tpacpi-bat.BAT0.stopThreshold = 100 [%]
    tpacpi-bat.BAT0.forceDischarge = 0

    Charge = 58.5 [%]
    Capacity = 75.7 [%]
  • Bigminds kung gusto mo original e di sa lenovo service center lang iyon. Usually mga galing china at tsambahan kung maganda ang quality. Pero wala na atang nagrerepack sa ngayon
  • ^ thanks sa mga reply nyo mga sir

    replica / non-orig is ok na siguro sa akin.

    Medyo hassle lang kasi kapag lilipat ako ng pwesto kailangan ko pa muna ishutdown yung laptop bago makalipat. Ang worst case scenario ko is nasasagi minsan ng mga bata yung power plug habang may ginagawa ako.
  • Mga Sirs/Bossing,

    Ask ko lang kung saan makabili ng OEM battery for T430. Medyo nag-aalangan ako sa replacement sa mga nakikita kong mga sellers. Baka magkaroon ng technical glitch along the way or hindi ma-recognize ng laptop mismo (might be the case) . Baka meron sa inyo may nakaka-alam. Salamat!
  • ^ oem / orig talaga dapat since t430 may inintroduce silang chip / security features sa batt. kung replacement walang chip di gagana sa t430
  • thank you sir ryanrudolf sa reply.

    baka po idea kayo kung saan makabili.

    Just newly acquired lang din po nung 1st week ng march. tapus na din upgrade. baterya na lang kulang.
    I will post some pictures later along with the upgrades and goodies.
  • pa-PM na lang po sir regarding the OEM battery for T430. Salamat
  • Mga sir lost my trackpoint nub today. May DIY solution ba para dito?
    Or pa PM naman kung may recommended seller kayo. :D
  • ^ I bought mine online (ebay) mura lang pero shipping from china or hk takes 2 weeks to one month
  • ^ Too good to be true ba sa ebay yung 100php for 10pcs? Haha
  • ^ mura talaga yan

    120gb msata ssd evo 850 nakuha ko nga halos 1k
  • ^ zeddosan04 ganoon lang talaga ka mura iyon plastic lang naman e. make sure merong feedback yung binibilhan mo
  • mga paps ang GPU ng T61 ko bumgay na. Advisable p b ang reball?
  • ^ hingi ka ng ilang months na warranty kung pa reball ka. Pero kadalasan masisira na din iyon.
  • Hello, pwede pa bang mag pa advise bumili ng thinkpad sa ebay. I'm from Cebu but I'm worried sa shipping and tax. I'm planning to buy x230 preferable i7 or pwede ako nalang mag upgrade. I'm planning some upgrades aswell pati sa LCD Panel.

    Salamat po!
  • ^ katakot iyan. wala ka bang makita na local lang?
  • x230 preferable i7 or pwede ako nalang mag upgrade

    X Series Thinkpads have processors that are soldered to the system board, which means that they're not upgradable (unless you replace the entire board).

    IMO, better find a local seller than ebay.
  • 6months na si x220 ko! aiming for at least 5yrs old and many more years to come!

    sulit ang thinkpad 2nd hand market, buti na lang napadpad ako dito sa tpc forum and reddit.

    maxxed out x220, wag lang magbago ang usage patterns ko swak na swak pa din si x220
  • @adonis827

    Wala po available sa Cebu at the moment meron po kayong ma recommend na seller sa Manila? Papano po ang shipping nyan paki explain naman po para komportable ako mag bigay ng pera.

    Thanks more power!
  • ^ is pc kanto payag sa shipping. kasuhan mo kung hindi ipadala sayo yung laptop. I am not sure kung anong available sa kanila check mo na lang yung account nila dito at sa fb
  • Hi Sirs,

    San po pwedeng bumili ng cheap replacement keyboard for Lenovo Thinkpad T440p? Thanks in advance
  • Just performed a live upgrade (apt full-upgrade) from Debian 8 to 9 on two of my Thinkpads (X61 and X220). Download took around 3 hours @ 1 mbps for each, around 1.2GB of DEB files were downloaded.
  • ^ grats! im on Sid but havent dist-upgrade yet.

    OTOH, thinkpad retro is real! gonna save up for it!
