Macbook Pro 2019 Touchbar isn't charing battery with Thinkpad Thunderbold 3 (2nd Gen) Dock

2020-03-28, 12:06 PM

Hey..

 

My Macbook pro 2019 with Touchbar isn't charging the battery.The Macbook is connected with the original Lenovo Thunderbold3 Cable. Everything is working (Display, USB, and so on) but the Batter isn't charging. Anybody has a Macbook 2019 with a charging battery? Is there a possiblity to update a firmware or something like that? If im right, the Dock has a output of 90W that should be enought for my Macbook isn't it?

 

Cheers

Ronny

Hi Ronny257, Make sure you are plugging the Thunderbolt 3 cable into the USB-C socket on the BACK of the dock. If you are plugged into the front USB-C socket you will see the symptoms you describe.

Hi Ronny257, USB-C can be frustrating - you can plug things in but if the cable isn't right and the devices at either end don't support the right thing, it doesn't work. And there's no simple diagnostic to tell you what the problem is. Make sure everything is up to date at either end of the cable, and try a different cable. Anyone else reading this had success?

And I use the Dock"ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock Gen 2" 40AN0135EU.. On the Internet there are some other TB3 Docks from Lenovo with a 65w and a 170w charging cable. Do you think i need an additional Powercalbe for my dock? Manual: Page 7 - Figure9 there are 2 Powerconnectors I use the one for 135w https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/options/thinkpad_thunderbolt3_ug_en_201812.pdf
