    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - I bought 3-pack for replacing old cells in Thinkpad 600 battery.

    The runtime is now about 3 hours. Enough for me, despite if the battery capacity isn't real.

    - Price-ratio is great. New battery for less than 20$ (3-pack).

    Cons:

    - There is no solder-tab on minus pole. But it is possible solder a tab if you have good lead-tin and flux. Of course, you have to solder quickly and be very carefull.

    OtherThoughts:

    Replacing the cells to Thinkpad 600 battery was easy.

    Just unwrap the gray "Trustfire" capsule (there is second capsule under) and remove the + pole knob. There was a ready solder-tab under the knob.

    Then I grind/cleaned the minus pole slighly, put enough flux and then quickly soldered the batteries in place.

    Bottomline:

    If you want your old notebook to mobile again, these batteries are good to use when replacing cells.

    But check first that:

    - Old cells are in 18650 form.

    - The battery is not a smart one, which remembers old cells condition.

    - You'll handle the risks and soldering.
