Where to buy cmos battery for IBM T22?

Postby arw » Thu, 13 Jan 2011 8:13 pm

I have just arrived in Singapore and the internal battery of my IBM T22 has failed. Does anyone know where to purchase a replacement?
Best regards,

I'm not sure I follow - so you can't replace the battery alone?

Doesn't look like it. Came as a sealed unit from IBM last time. I have contacted the service centre here, just waiting for a reply. In the UK I could have solved this easily. Just arrived in Singapore and getting to know my way around.

I know the type you are talking of - head to Sim Lim, and from 3rd floor - browse and you will never go wrong -

if you are not having any luck in singapore, your best bet would be ebay. getting it directly from lenovo singapore would cost a bomb!

T22 is about 10 years old. Still works and runs MSOffice 2003, which is all I really need. A bit slow but you get used to it.

It is EOL at IBM/Lenovo, it is not expensive - just the shipping + indenting = wait for 2 weeks .. :D :D

Better off at Sim Lim ...

I would like to thank everyone for their help. I got the battery at Unicell in Sim Lim Square.

IBM/Lenovo replied by saying take it to a service centre. Stock answer I suspect.
