That this is even required is itself poor design.

Date:06 January 2013
"It does the job, but its mere necessity is the essence of poor design. It's basically an adapter with approximately zero electronics inside it, and its huge and very awkward for what it is.
Laptops from other vendors let you connect an ordinary charger directly into their external batteries which is a simple design that works. For Lenovo, you need to carry around this annoying extra bit of junk, which _still_ needs a normal charger to power it.
To top it off, the battery doesn't fit it the connector and the cable is so short you can't hide it under your desk either."

No Good with the 8 Cell Battery

Date:30 June 2008
Pros: Screen size, Weight
Cons: battery charger
"I just purchased an extra battery and charger for our ThinkPad X61 Tablet. When it came, I could not figure out how the battery fits on the charger. After reading directions and trying different things, I called customer service/technical support and they told me that this battery does not fit inside the cradle, but must be placed alongside the charger. This is a very poor set up - if I pay $120 for a charger for my battery, it should fit!"
