Battery Tips for IBM Thinkpad X200:
1. Your new IBM Thinkpad X200 laptop battery comes in a discharged
condition and must be charged before use (refer to your computer manual
for charging instructions). Upon initial use (or after a prolonged
storage period) the battery may require two to three charge/discharge
cycles before achieving maximum capacity.
2. When charging IBM
Thinkpad X200 laptop battery for the first time your computer may
indicate that charging is complete after just 10 or 15 minutes. This is
a normal phenomenon with rechargeable batteries. Simply remove the
battery from the computer and repeat the charging procedure.
3. It is important to condition (fully discharge and then fully charge)
IBM Thinkpad X200 laptop battery every two to three weeks. Failure to
do so may significantly shorten the battery's life (this does not apply
to Li-ion batteries, which do not require conditioning). To discharge,
simply run your device under the battery's power until it shuts down or
until you get a low battery warning. Then recharge the battery as
instructed in your user's manual.
4. If IBM Thinkpad X200 laptop battery will not be in use for a month
or longer, it is recommended that it be removed from the device and
stored in a cool, dry, clean place.
5. It is normal for IBM Thinkpad X200 laptop battery to become warm during charging and discharging.
6. A charged IBM Thinkpad X200 laptop battery will eventually lose its
charge if unused. It may therefore be necessary to recharge the battery
after a storage period.
