Hi all,

 

is there an apapter to be able to use the ThinkPad power adapter (or an power pack) with the "USB power adapter" (the one with the little "horn" on the side (sorry, that is no professional description). 

 

Thank you and best regards,

Danke!

 

I just bought an official AC charger for my Y900s but this adapter looks like it will do the job with existing 20VDC chargers for a fraction of the price.

 

Please keep us informed about how well this adapter works.

That is an awesome find!  Please do let us know how it works, AND just what power brick you end up using it with.

Hi all,

 

I received the adapter a few weeks late (was held up at customs) but I have tried it now a few times. 

The adapter works just fine and didn't made any troubles.

 

I using it with a "Poweradd - Pilot Pro 2" (Link to amazon) and it also works fine. 

The power bank itself lets you recharge my Yoga up to 65 % (once it was 50%, once 65%), when you a normally using the PC while charging (display at 75%). 

 

When it is fully charged, it runs somewhere between 3 and 4 hours with the power bank, when you are normally using the PC (word, outlook, chrome and display at 75%).

 

Let me know if you also have some experiences with the adapter or a power bank. 

Regards,

Daniel
