Re: What's with the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter - it's a USB charger too?

Fair. Seems to be a Swiss problem then. But since shop.lenovo.com only ships to the place you log into that doesn't solve my problem yet (meaning, I can't log into the German shop and have it shipped to Switzerland). I'm also a bit puzzled why there should be a European and a Swiss version given that EU and Swiss two-pin plugs are the same (in addition to the voltage and frequency being the same).

Hi jbmoser, Try calling Lenovo (0848 53 6686), or a reseller, and ask for part number GX20H34897.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Not sure if this has been spotted

looks like someone selling just the cable (for a small fortune) if we combined this with one of the other PSU that might get a cheaper solution?

Re: What's with the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter - it's a USB charger too?

I noticed a flood of these parts on the eastern market... If they were cheaper, I'd give them a try, however, $35 CDN is mighty steep. I know I've been looking for a longer cord for mine. Still, perhaps there will be a longer cable coming with the new power adapter?

If you need it longer why not cut it it two pieces and add some other cable with 3 wires in between ;-)

 

B.T.W.  There seems to be 5 contacts at the upper left corner in this picture:

They must be for charging voltage. Has anyone measured what voltage there is at which pin while power supply connected with the laptop? I suppose there will be ground and 20V between some two pins and there is the answer how to use some other power supply with this device. It only needs to give the same 20V voltage.
