Yoga 2 Pro : Charging.

2014-01-20, 14:29 PM

As they do not sell spare power bricks for the Yoga 2 Pro.  Has anyone found any 3rd party ones that work properly with it. 

 

Also I know its a long shot but does anyone know if you can charge via usb? 

 

Thanks

Sure they do. Search the lenovo store "Power Store" section using any Y2P model number and the power brick comes up. Lots of people here have bought spares from Lenovo.

Maybe it's a UK thing.  But they don't.  I even phoned and asked when I ordered in the first place.

 

I suppose I could look to order from another part of the world and pay for extra shipping.

That is for the original Yoga.  Might work, but can't be sure.  The part number is different to the one that ships and its 10w less output.  Anyone tried this?

Since I am unfortunately stuck with this POS comp, I just bought a thinkpad adaptor that outputs the same voltage at the same amp and watts of my yoga charger. Then I bought a thinkpad to yoga tip converter, all for around ~$14 from amazon. It arrives tomorrow (yay to free 2 day shipping). If all works well, I will post the link tomorrow. If not, I won't have you waste your $$$.

the original Yoga 13 adapter is the same as the Yoga 2 Pro. You can also use the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 90 watts adapter, or the ThinkPad Helix and Yoga adapter with 45 watts power (this one will give you error message, saying you need bigger power supply, but it works with no problem).

The original Yoga 13 charger will charge a Yoga 2 Pro, I've tried it (note that I only used it under normal load and did not time how long it takes to charge).

Not sure what the mainpoints are but most of this looks like the Yoga Charger.

 

Model : ADLX65SDC2A

LC PN : 36200350

LI PN : 45N0357

FRU PN :  45N0358

INPUT 100-240v~1.5A 50-60hz

OUTPUT 20v 3.25A

 

But it also has 

Consumo de energia: 74.45Wh

 

Which is why I think its 75W.  Maybe wrong.

 

Either way I have decided to try this from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00E1LNMAO 

 

If it works great, if not, less money wasted.

 

Ill report back
