Lenovo has requested that this be shared on sites where we are active.

On March 27, 2014, Lenovo voluntarily recalled certain lithium-ion batteries. These batteries were manufactured for use with ThinkPad notebook computers that shipped worldwide between October 2010 and April 2011. Lenovo is offering replacement batteries free of charge regardless of warranty status.

Lenovo sold the batteries with new notebook computers or as optional or replacement batteries on the models listed below.

    ThinkPad T410, T420, T510, W510, X100E, X120E, X200, X201, X201s Series
    Edge 11, Edge 13, and Edge 14 Series
    Option P/Ns 43R9255, 51J0500, 57Y4186, 57Y4564, 57Y4565, 57Y4625, 57Y4559, 43R9254, 0A36277


These models may have shipped with 3-cell, 4-cell, 6-cell or 9-cell batteries.

Until a replacement battery arrives, you should turn off the system, remove the battery, and only power your ThinkPad by plugging in the AC adapter and power cord.
