Lenovo Yoga 500 battery voltage compatibility.

Go to solution Solved by Birtijas,

Hi all, 

 

Laptop works with 11.1VDC 45Wh battery, tested and tried. 

So Yoga 500-14ISK model can work with L14M2P21 or L14M3P21 battery. 

 

Hi all, 

I just bought Lenovo Yoga 500-14ISK and i would like to exchange battery since old one is weak in capacity and holds just for minutes. 


I opened up laptop and found L14M2P21 battery with 30Wh, 7.4VDC and 4050mAh. 

While searching online I found that there is option with same PN L14M3P21 but with 45Wh, 11.1VDC (link to amazon: https://www.amazon.com/BOWEIRUI-L14M3P21-Replacement-L14L3P21-L14M2P21/dp/B07T5XGVW9)


Can I use this higher voltage battery in my laptop?

Did someone try this already?


Thanks in advance.

If you decide to use that battery toss away the laptop already and save yourself purchasing a battery that kills your laptop :p.

 

You need to use a battery that is MADE FOR THE DEVICE. Not a random seems similar battery you need THE EXACT ONE or a CORRECT REPLICA.

 

That battery you tried to link WILL kill your laptop flat out.

Issue why I'm asking is, that is that this laptop supports both 30Wh and 45Wh batteries (Link to lenovo product page: https://www.lenovo.com/gb/en/laptops/yoga/500-series/Lenovo-Yoga-500-14ISK/p/88YG5000648#)image.png.d970f7468a6c3f305e2f26ded0a60fa4.png

I also checked Lenovo hardware manual and it's listed that all devices should support both 7.4VDC 30Wh battery as well as 11.1VDC 45Wh battery (https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_500-14isk_500-15isk_hmm_201509.pdf)

To be honest this makes sense from hardware design aspect, since it's probably same cost to place DC-DC switcher with input range form 7.4 to something like 24 VDC and you don't need to produce 2 PCB variants or replace some components on manufacturing documentation for PCBA). 

 

I just hoped that someone tried this before trying it out, but ill risk it and get back with results.
