    I have a CF-53 MK2 with a VZSU71 battery.
    Can i use a VZSU46 in it, or is it not recommended ?
    I can buy original VZSU46 here in Europe or aftermarket VZSU71, what do i do ?

    I have used VZSU46 daily for two years in a CF-53 MK2.

    Long time no see. :)

    From service manual for CF53AA---
    Do Not Use This Product With a Battery Pack Other Than the One Specified Use only the specified battery pack (CF-VZSU71U) with your product. Use of battery packs other than those manufactured and supplied by Panasonic may present a safety hazard (generation of heat, ignition or rupture)

    I am using a VZSU46 battery in my CF53A. It seems to last longer than the VZSU71

    I have had my 53 now for 4 years now and still have the same battery. About 18,000 hours on it and get 4+ hours on it. Try getting that on a aftermarket battery. Go with the OEM battery.

    Thanks for the answers, good to see the same people are still on the forum.
    I did a tour on Apple (for work reasons) but got back to the beloved Toughbook :cool:
    There are a bunch of 53´s for cheap (around 500 euro) in Germany, They are in very good shape with low hours, touchscreen and emissive keyboard.
    I love them, have my 52 in use for years now and still going strong with daily use.

    I asked about the battery because i want a spare to run the 53 a longer time without the adapter.
    If someone of you guys have a battery for the multibay for sell, i am willing to pay a good price for it as i did not find them here in Europe.

    I have a couple media bay batteries for the CF31.
    Is the second battery an option for the CF53?
    The CF54 also has an optional second battery

    I don´t know, how can i find out ?

    Edit : there is no quick release for the DVD, so i think it is not possible on a 53.
