P11 Charging...SUPER finicky!!!

2021-06-20, 22:35 PM

I left for a two-week long work trip and accidentally left my P11 charger at home. I've tried charging the, now dead, P11 with my Macbook Pro charger, my Google Pixel charger, with different USB-C cables...and NOTHING works. Is it just me?

Hello @ anthemwild!

 

Thanks for posting here at the Community Forums!

 

Upon checking through the Tab P11's specifications, its does have the specifications of 10V/2A for its Charging Adapter which also includes USB Type-C™ Charging Cable.

 

As for other chargers that you've used, it seems that they aren't compatible with the Tab P11 itself that is why it cannot charge the machine itself even when it's plugged for like 1 or 2 hours.

 

With this, we would suggest to try visiting any local tech shops or stores near your area to get a replacement adapter that you can use to charge the Tab P11.

 

Make sure to inquire first if the charger that they're selling/offering is fully compatible with the Tab P11 itself.

 

You may check the Tab P11's complete specifications by the way through this link.

 

Thanks,

Adriel_Lenovo

Thank you Adriel!

 

I just spent the last 20 minutes or so trying to find a list of local retailers on your website...can't seem to find anything. Would you mind sharing that link with me please?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for responding @ anthemwild!

 

You may try getting in touch with our Lenovo Sales to inquire if they do have the P11's adapter/charger in stock on their end.

Please click on this link to get their contact details.

 

Aside from that, you may also use this other link to see some stores to inquire for the same item.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

My Lenovo charger included with the P11 is a multi-voltage and wattage charger. 

 

It indicates 5V at 3.0 Amp, 15 watts,

                 10V at 2.0 Amp, 20 watts

                 12v at 1.6 Amps, 20 watts

 

Usually, with these chargers, they are capable of providing any of the output types shown on the label.  I believe the P11 "likes" the 10V at 2.0 Amp for fast charging, so when it detects a charger with those specs it will use them, however, almost all USB charging systems also offer the 5.0 V, usually at 2-3 Amps, since that is the standard. To my knowledge the P11 should be able to charge using that standard, however, the charging process will be fairly slow.

 

It would be unusual for a USB charged device to not be compatible with the 5.0V 2 Amp.

Great post and thank you for sharing. I was considering that option and found this post so changed my opinion.
