Hello Ali Mobin,

 

Greetings.

 

Officially, only the charger that came with the machine is certified for use on most OEM models.

 

Challenges that goes with usually the power requirement, the proprietary pin, whitelisting (BIOS detection for safety purpose) are among the list.

 

We do hope other members can share other options for you as technology develops.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

I have the same Model.

170W, not working

130W, not working.

 

You have to use 230W, old or new, both are working.

I tried 170W and 130W from Workmates Original Lenovo Notebooks, it says to weak and will not charger.

Funny thing, the Notebook with 170W means to my 230W Power Supply that its too weak too :D.

 

What you could do, if you have lower Wattage is, change some Resistor inside the Power Supply, but i didn't and would not suggest you todo.

 

Regards

Beltar
