Yoga 900 charger replacement

2016-02-14, 11:24 AM

Hi,

 

A client of mine lost his Yoga 900 charger doing flight.

I can't seem to find original adapter in Israel, But I can buy Yoga 3 Pro charger, And would like to know if it's compatible with the Yoga 900 laptop (I know it's only 40W vs, 65W, But would it handle charging heat or charge slower, Assuming it's compatible pinout-wise ?)

 

Thank you !

Thank you very much Shay for your answer. I will grab a yoga pro 3 charger if I won't be able to get original one by tomorrow.

Hi,

 

I've heard of users doing this with some success but there are also reports of problems.

 

Under load the smaller power supply can go into overcurrent/overtemp shutdown or experience voltage sags that cause the laptop to revert to battery power.  This can go on repeatedly as the load and temps cycle.

 

Might be ok for charging only, but not a good idea IMHO.

Not a good idea to use the Yoga 3 Pro charger. The charger can overheat dramatically. I've heard from some other users who tried this that the charger gets really hot.

Hello,

 

The characteristics of the Yoga 900 charger are:

20V

3.25A

 

So you need a charger with these characteristics:

20V (19V or 19.5V will work too)

3.25 A (or more, it doesn't matter).

 

Yoga 3 Pro is 2A, which is not enough.

Thanks blero,

The thing is that I have no problem to get a 20V 3+ A charger, It just doesn't have the special yoga 900 connector....
The only option I see is to order charger from abroad.
