Lenovo 930 Power Bank Suggestions?

2019-01-24, 2:44 AM

Anyone have any suggestions for a power bank to use with the C930?

 

This is the one I was taking a look at on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Power-Delivery-Charger-20000-Output/dp/B078RTGL35/ref=sr_1_3?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1542574990&sr=8-3&keywords=portable+battery+pack+9V+3A&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011

 

The power bank is 45W. However, the C930 charge is 65W. According to the seller, it will work with the C930 but not charge as quickly as the older generation C920, which is 45W.

 

Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

It'll work because it sends enough power to the C930 to charge. 

 

I personally have one of these for my X1 Yoga: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZ61PRW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Since these are all USB-C and is powerful enough to deliver the voltage the C930 needs, it will work. 

 

Hope that helps.

No Anker Powerbank presently available is capable of charging the Lonovo Yoga C930. I know - I bought one. Asked Anker about it - no other variants can do it. Unfortunately.

Lenovo itself recommended the Lenovo ThinkPad Stack Powerbank 10000mah. Very skeptical.

I would appreciate if anyone could indicate one.  Which actually is being successfully used with this laptop. 

 

Thank you.

Which one did you try? The one  linked, above, should have the necessary capability, assuming the USB-C port is configured correctly for Lenovo's laptops. I apologize as I don't have a 930 and rarely need a power bank (My vehicles have inverters and I rarely have a flight where an A/C port's not available).

1. Maybe the BatPower PDE 2 P26B USB-C Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank for Apple Microsoft HP Lenovo Dell Razer Asus LG Acer MSI Samsung PD USB C Laptop Notebook Tablet Smartphone -98Wh

And the next Batpower up the list. 

2. Also - 

Aukey 26800mAh Power Bank
with 2-Way Power Delivery

PB-XD26

...............................................

There's one caveat:

No one with a Lenovo Yoga C930 has come up stating they are actually using any of these power banks. Thus it's a roulette game.

I own a YOGA C930 and purchased the Ankar PowerCore+ PD 45W with the 60WPowerPort Atom III. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XRJZXKY?creativeASIN=B07XRJZXKY&imprToken=j7rEOMb2o3A.fT7r3icsOw&slotNum=11&tag=svnetworksorg-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1&keywords=Anker%20Macbook%20Pro%20Charger

 

It charged my YOGA C930 3 times and then ceased charging my laptop. That is how I found this forum, which had a post saying that NO Ankar products will charge a Lenovo C930. So I put it on ebay and it sold. Just before I packed it up, I plugged into my Lenovo C930, just for the hell of it, and it charged my C930!!!

 

Could this be a software issue? Update? Anybody?

 

Fred

I can confirm that this Crave 60W one that I bought for a macbook will NOT charge my 930 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PNKC58W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Maybe it isn't the same but this powerbank charges my Yoga C940 which I believe has the same watt demand as the C930 does. Goes on special occasionally for $50.
