European Charger for Yoga 2 11?

I emailed the customer service at Lenovo about this months back and never heard anything. 

 

Does anyone know if there is a European (UK specifically) charger for the Lenovo Yoga 2 11? Or a converter out there I can use to charge it?

 

All the power adapters I have found specifically say not to use them with laptops. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Kaitlynn and welcome to the community,

 

I have a Yoga 900 that came with a UK adapter and I've been using it with a UK to US adapter without any ill effects.  I believe you could go the other way with a US to UK adapter.

 

I would think that Lenovo UK would have the proper adapter but you would probably have to get it from Lenovo UK, I doubt that Lenovo Service in US would have it.

Thank you! I'll have a look over on their site (why that never occured to me, I have no idea). 

 

As long as I can get it -somewhere-, its better than going with out. 

 

Thanks again!

Here's one at Amazon that says that it fits a Yoga 11, but there is a verified review that says it fits a Yoga 2 13.

Hi,

 

As Dave said you should be able to use a simple plug adapter.

 

As long as your existing power adapter is universal voltage (50-60Hz and 100-240VAC probably) you don't need a new power brick or wall wart.  Just a simple mechanical adapter will do.

 

You could also purchase an entire assembly with a UK power cord - or just purchase the UK power cord if you have a "brick" with a removable cord - but that shouldn't be necessary.

 

You can find the plug adapters in many locations.  My local hardware store has them.  Here's one example (of many) at Amazon:

[edit] the previous link I posted was for an ungrounded US (2 prong) plug.  Since yours may be 2 or 3 prong, something like this is a better choice.

Thank you! 

 

I'm glad to know this at least exists. Got a bit to decide if I'll buy it though.

 

Thanks again!

Re: European Charger for Yoga 2 11?

My only qualm with these is many seem to not cover the 3-prong design (this one seems to though).  While my current one would technically work, I'm leary of leaving the ground exposed while its plugged into the adaptor. 

 

Another great option though. 

 

Thank you!
