    I would just make up all that previous owner info as you have nothing to lose (they will void your warranty?).

    Have you considered getting a decent power bank instead of chasing the battery?


    Oh, and please do report on NVME SSD, I am interested.

    What if that seller sold me stolen laptop? Then I will get police on my doorstep and probably lose the laptop.

    About power brick, I don't like clutter, I don't even use mouse, I use touchpad, and sometimes work standing up and one handed. That is because I sometimes have to work long hours and sitting at one spot it boring. Power bank is ok for travel, I might get it, but battery need to be good also.

    I will report on NVMe, as soon as I fix battery problem I am getting the 512GB NVME, and probably also docking station so I can easily plug monitors.

    It's up to you, I would take my chances. Also, I would not be comfortable moving around with a stolen item, so I'd like to know if it's legit. Your call.

    Well if it was stolen I did not steal it, I paid it fairly. So I don't feel like chasing new laptop and then paying it again, especially I never again saw this exact model and configuration on local sites. T460p is also hard to impossible to find. So if I risk it I might never get similar laptop, not to mention cost, which is smaller problem but still a problem. I got used to this laptop and I don't feel like parting with it.

    On battery matter here is what I found

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/182519871616

    Seller says it only lacks packaging. Not sure which of 4 models is this. I asked but no response so far

    So did you verify this claim in any way? Dell says my model max RAM is 16GB, but I run 32GB. If I remember correctly, models with discrete graphics have LESS room inside (more chips included) so I find it strange that they can fit battery that Intel graphics based models can't. If I am wrong someone correct me please.

    The E5470 manual (page 48) lists 3 cell 47 Whr and 4 cell 62Whr batteries and shows that the latter is longer. Page 10 of the manual states that the 6 cell battery is not compatible with a hard drive. While the manual isn't consistent with itself, I think the meaning is that the 62Whr battery won't co-exist with a 2.5" drive. However, I can't explain where the 66Whr battery comes from.

    Page 45 of the manual states:
    • dedicated graphics (Intel 6th generation U-type processors) – 1 DIMM slot
    • dedicated and integrated graphics (Intel 6th generation H-type processors) – 2 DIMM slot

    I did verify. Model with discrete graphics have 1 DIMM. Battery for them is also less bulky and longer. So more vertical space for GPU and no space for 2.5 inch drive. The IGP model has a compartment for 2.5 drive which seems like it can't be dismounted not sure but looks as part of the chasis. So don't see it can fit long battery

    098N0 Battery, 66WHR, 6 Cell, Lithium Ion, Samsung
    2XNYN Battery, 66WHR, 6 Cell, Lithium Ion, Sanyo Energy

    Those are the model number of batteries, I got from Dell. Look on internet how battery looks. To me it seems it can't fit.

    To add to confusion, I just chatted with dell support person. Asked about battery, he says they now only have 40Whr 4-cell battery and no other. And 40 Whr battery looks same as that 66Whr except it is shorter. It's part number is GXVJ3

    http://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop...thium-ion-battery/apd/453-bbbq/pc-accessories

    Moreover, one Dell person says GXVJ3 fits on all e5470 models. And other dell person says 66Whr does not fit in IGP graphics (after he did additional research, first he thought it will work)

    I think ordering 47Whr 11V Simplo battery from eBay is safest option for me, if someone else wants it, i put the link few posts above. I am ordering. If this goes well and I feel adventurious after upgrading to NVME, I might think about 66whr mod also (i don't think it will go without chasis modification), but that only when 47whr wears out. I go one step at the time for now.

    Hi!

    I have a E5470 with the i5 quad-core (i5-6440) and to me it seems to be running very hot. When running high performance tasks, it hits 100°C (212°F) and after a couple of minutes the CPU frequency is reduced to 1900MHz. Is anybody having similar behaviour of his laptop? Is this normal or not? My machine is still under warranty so I am considering to contact Dell to have them check it out as well...

    Thanks,
    Rob
