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

Hey - Did you ever find anything that worked for a longer charger?  I'm also really annoyed about the length.

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

A qestion about the wiring:

 

I want to try the following solution. I bought an external Battery Pack and a (relativly) cheap third party charger for the yoga 3. I cut the cable of the third party charger to connect it to the battery back. My idea was to just plug it into the battery and boom. Sadly, there are THREE cables for the infamous Lenovo cable (Red, Black, White).

 

How do I connect those three to the battery which has only two poles? The third cable must carry information on that this cable is for charging, not for USB, right? Suggestions?

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

pretty lost on this cable.  Got one from eBay, cut it and measure....

Black + white = 5.4V

Black + Blue = 5.1V

White + Blue = 340mV

 

LOST!  

Pinout, blue is the both pins on both far end.

 

Guess, blue is a signal pin to negotiate for 20V.  No way to hook up a dirty adapter.  Only can lengthen the cable.

Black & White seem to be 20AWG.  Blue is 22AWG.  <- this is eBay cable. 

Original maybe thicker.

Does anyone know what those extra pins are looking for to signal the yoga 3 pro to charge?  I want to charge from a dc battery system and just supply the 20v myself.  are thos pins looking for continuity? a voltage?
