Thinkpad and Ideapad 90W Slim AC/DC Combo Adapter

2008-08-14, 17:29 PM

I have an IdeaPad Y710 (and love everything about it).


However, please help me with some guidance/advice.


Under Lenovo/products/accessories & upgrades/batteries & power, I am advised that the 90 W Adapter does not support Y710 which requires 135W power.


Under Lenovo Support & downloads/Thinkpad and Ideapad 90W Slim AC/DC combo adapter, I am advised that it is compatible with IdeaPad Y710 Series/Canada. I am in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


This seems to be conflicting information, but perhaps I am not understanding the issue.


Can someone steer me in the right direction, please?

For safety sake, i would stick with a larger capacity adapter. Using a smaller wattage adapter may cause current overdraws, which may cause fire to the adapter in the worse situation and would usually shorten the lifespan of all the electrical systems in the ideal cases. Just replace with small wattage rating adapter with the one you got now, information on the internet isn't always correct, as there are always the chance of human error when typing up information that may not be picked up when read over (if it was read over).
