Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long battery life, limited life expectancy I purchased this as a replacement for the battery I had that was about 4 years old. The new battery is awesome, super long life between charges even when using speakers and running multiple memory-heavy programs. The old battery was down to about ~1/2 an hour's use before needing to be recharged. So, I'm giving 4 stars here rather than 5 because that's how many years the battery lasted for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional battery life. The battery life has been exceptional. I have had this battery about a month and I easily get 6-9 hours out of a single charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long battery life I'm happy with this external battery that I purchased for my X240. This basically quadruples usage time and gives me around 12 hours combined with the internal battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from disappointed in the reputation Reviews of Lenovo show that the battery lasts up to 17 hours. I bought a replacement because my new battery lasted about an hour. The replacement indicates 3 hours when full and unplugged. The laptop runs hot when plugged in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I only go to the Lenovo site to order accessories. Because I know I get a good price, quick shipping, and the genuine product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as expected This battery performs as expected, albeit not as hoped. It is an exact replacement of the original battery that came with the laptop. Battery lasts about 5 to 6 hours instead of the 9 to 12 hours the computer (ThinkPad T470p) promised. Since it was on sale, I bought two and will switch them out as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends the life of my laptop significantly I've only had this battery for a few weeks, but as a grad student I enjoy being able to use my laptop all day without a charge (a full charge lasts about 10-12 hours of studying/typing/reading/browsing on low- to mid-level brightness for my T450S). The bump out takes some getting used to and the weight of the increased size isn't too significant considering the lifespan of a single charge. Delivery took a bit longer than expected, but if this charge continues to hold, definitely worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All day or more battery life I run both Linux and Windows and battery performs well in each OS, and does better than I expected - of course, it is still new. Seems like it if it is idle for while, it holds charge best at 50-60%. Thickness bump is more than expected, but extra life worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best upgrade you can possibly get for more battery This is great for my everyday task have to on my Thinkpad t450

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defintiely not extended life The battery only last a total of 3 hours before it either drains or has 2% left before it drains completely. Description stated 8 hours but doesn't even make it half way to that point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery for road warriors This battery has all the functions required from a battery, particularly a compact size, built in base with rubber feet so that it can prop up on an economy class tray-table, and more than 6 hours of run time on my T440s so that I can work in economy class discomfort for even more time. This means I can work while remaining compliant with my company's travel policy of saving $50 while sending me via Omaha on my shorthall domestic trip to LA and I don't care that absolutely none of the power outlets on United work. I mean, what were they doing with all those billions during Covid? Certainly not fixing the power outlets! So get a good battery, and relax!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like new Fits just like new in my older T440s. My laptop says 6 hours of battery life at full charge. It was just plug and play replacement of the previous battery that I broke. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Fits Over Docking Station This battery has an amazingly long life. I've been working for 6 hours and still have plenty of battery left. It does fit over my docking station, which was a question I had after ordering.
