The longevity of the Lenovo ThinkPad 44++ battery ensures that you never run out of power. The 9-cell system is rechargeable and the ideal replacement or add-on battery for the X220 and X230 systems. The battery uses lithium-ion technology and can be used with the external ThinkPad charger (40Y7625).

Some manufacturers integrate a battery protection function in their notebooks. This function only allows charging up to 80% capacity to prolong he lifespan of the battery.
The so-called memory-effect of a Lithium-Ion battery can be disregarded in normal use, a complete charge after a complete discharge is not needed.
On the contrary for many modern devices the opposite is true, it is best to keep the charge between 20% and 80%. This is due to the sensitivity of Lithium-Ion batteries to depth discharge and overcharge. However, in most devices control electronics prevent the user from making any grave mistakes. For example, Apple implements a function which charges the battery as fast as possible up to 80% but charging slows down a lot after that. This conserves the lifespan of the battery at the cost of charge time.
One thing that should be avoided though is leaving your device plugged in for many days in a row. The battery should be discharged once in a while to move the ions inside.
This is a question, that is hard to answer, because it depends on a lot of different factors such as CPU, Display, GPU. Usually a 15.6" notebook consumes about 20W when using the battery. A 17" unit can also use a bit more.
With these 20W a 60Wh battery would last for 3 hours. t = W/P = 60Wh/20W
The energy stored in the battery can be calculated as follows:
W = U * i* t for a 6-cell battery with 4400 mAh this would be 11.1V * 4.4Ah = 48,4 Wh
With the 20W of power consumption this battery would last about 2.5 hours.
If you wish to conserve battery life, the following tips might help you:
New batteries are usually shipped partially charged.
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries are the most commonly used energy storage and offer a high energy density.
The CE certification mark, confirms that the battery is compliant with all guidelines of the European Union.
The RoHS mark confirms, that the battery complies with the EU-regulations for the restriction of the usage of certain dangerous materials in electronic devices.
The REACh certification mark confirms, that the chemicals used conform to EU regulations.

The safety test according to UN38.3 has been passed. The battery is safe for transport aboard a plane.
Manufacturers often print different capacity ratings on their battery to comply with different norms. We will quickly explain them on the basis of an Acer battery.
You can use this battery in your Notebook without a problem. Both voltages are compatible with your notebook. Differences of up to one Volt between the rated voltage printed on the notebooks original battery and the replacement part are safe. Therefore 14,4 V batteries are also compatible with 14,8 V ones. However, the same is not true for 10,8V/11,1V with 14,4V/14,8V ones.
The difference is due to a different cathode material being used in the battery cells. Using Lithium-cobalt oxide will result in 3,6V per cell while using Lithium-manganese oxide will result in 3,7V per cell.See also:
The manufacturers cannot always print all replacement part numbers on their batteries that will be replaced. The same is true for the notebook models listed on the bill. Some batteries fit into more then 50 different devices.
