Brain Strong! Batteries Weak!
A few months ago fallenpegasus gifted me with a bag full of dead Thinkpad T23s in the hopes that I might be able to part them out and keep Kusanagi running. His problem seems to be that he consistently mishandles his laptops to the point where the motherboard shorts out, but I seem to burn out monitors and keyboards.

One of the parts he left in the bag was a Li-Ion Ultrabay Battery. This is a "secondary" battery that slips in where the DVD drive goes, and provides more power. Although it was marked "dead," it actually gave me an extra two hours of power. Until this morning, when the release catch for it snagged on a loose thread inside my bookbag and it popped out.

The laptop immediately crashed and now it insists that the backup battery holds no charge whatsoever. I'm down to an average 90-minute charge on the main battery, which just sucks.

Loves me those T23s. I share your pain. Laptops for less has a 15% off online coupon, and offer a YEARS replacement warrantee.

Sorry, on Batteries. Laptops for less sells, among other things, laptop batteries.
