Battery pack removal and installation - ThinkPad T410, T410i

Battery pack removal

Important notice for replacing a battery pack:

ThinkVantage Toolbox (in Windows 7) and Lenovo System Toolbox (in Windows Vista and Windows XP) have an automatic battery diagnostic that determines if the battery pack is defective. A battery pack FRU should not be replaced unless this diagnostic shows that the battery is defective.

The only exception to this is if the battery pack is physically damaged or a customer is reporting a possible safety issue.

If ThinkVantage Toolbox or Lenovo System Toolbox is not installed in the computer, the customer should download this program before a non-physically damaged battery pack is replaced. Note that a physically damaged battery pack is non-warranty replacement.
