Not sure how long it will last, but if it dies before the warranty than you can get a replacement for sure.

With some laptops yoyur can get external batterys that link up to the laptop through a port. I know toshiba do them for there slimline range but i am not too sure about IBM. Never seen one that i can think of.

It looks like it's a direct replacement for the original battery, so it should last as long as the previous one did when it was new. No idea how long that is...
