World exclusive: ThinkPad 2017 USB-C power adapter :-p

OK, maybe I exaggerate, but I really COULDN'T easily find any pictures of the USB-C power adapters for the 2017 range of ThinkPads. I mean this is goodbye slim-tips (which I have hidden under every sofa), and hello USB-C. And this time I'm glad for the change, because I'm predicting that these USB-C power adapters will have a longer technological life than their predecessors. Because USB-C is finally appearing everywhere.

 

Here's the 65W power adapter found with a 2017 ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen:

And I know you're dying to ask if the little captive Velcro strip is long enough to wrap around the power brick and both the AC and DC cables: The answer is YES!

 

Here's a comparison, USB-C power adapter connector on the right, ThinkPad slim-tip in the middle, and the old round ThinkPad power connector on the left:

Hope it will stay for a while.

 

I used the flat travel ac charger with all tips til now.

As having the Yoga910 since a short time USB C is in my house now ...

I should have asked Santa Claus for a bag of slim-tip-to-USB3 adapters

So the modified USB-A connector as used in the Yoga 900, 900s et al and their AC chargers has now been supplanted by USB-C as well?

Yes. The Yoga 910 uses USB-C power too!

Is there an adapter that goes between the older round plug to the new USB-C? or the rectangular one to USB-C?

 

I already have a couple 90W power adapters and a 65W rectangular one also ... how many more AC adapters does one need?

Perhaps this? Dell Adapter 7.4mm Barrel to USB-C

 

What I find puzzling though is that clicking through for pricing leads to dead ends.
