Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook ?

T20 batteries wont stay charged

\015 I bought a used t20 thinkpad. The guy said the battery needed to be replaced. I leave it plugged in all the time as the battery wont charge. I bought 2 used batteries as they were cheap, figured I would try those.. The battery says its full charged but it shows charge time 3 hours, then within 10 minutes it drops down to 1.5 hours. i turned it on todsay after charging all night, turned it on and it said 1.5 hours within 30 min it was dead..is this the battery or charger or something else.. I have not used the other used battery i purchased...HELP I didnt pay much for the laptop and I cant afford to fix something big. But I am tired of not being able to take it anywhere since I always have to charge it.\015

Answers :

It might be that you are using older batteries. However, you should try dimming your backlight to the lowest possible setting and performing any other power-saving actions such as limiting the processor's power (if available on your laptop.) Hope this helps.
