Yoga 910 - USB - C Adaptor

Hey guys, there are many threads out there about the USB-C Port on the Yoga 910. I have a USB-C to HDMI adapter and it was working on my Yoga 900, now on the 910 it is not working. It also works on the Dell XPS

 

The reason for the following is due to the 4K of the 910. The adapter has its limit.

 

We need to find an adapter that works with the following:

 

VGA/DP OR HDMI

Charging port

Ethernet

USB

 

This thread had it started but quickly went confusing.

So far everything I've tried works when plugged into the charging USB-C port

Re: Yoga 910 - USB - C Adaptor

Yeah, the list is pretty up to date. For what it's worth, for a charger, you need one that'll do 45W. Others may charge the 910 more slowly or not at all while you're using it. Stick with the Lenovo that came with the 910 or order another one. 

 

I've been using the Trendnet USB-C to HDMI dongle. I can't vouch for 4k as I don't have a 4k TV. But it's worked flawlessly with a Vizio 1080p set. JUST REMEMBER to connect it to the 910 FIRST. When I connect it to the TV first, it doesn't always work. Amazon carries the Trendnet.

 

I don't need Ethernet. I have an b/g/n/ac router and the ac is plenty fast enough. So, can't help you there.

 

Every USB-C to USB-3 cable or adapter I've tried works just fine, though I tend to use the USB port for external drives, syncing my phone and what have you.

 

Hope this helps.

Well, once I found one that worked, I didn't try any others. I will tell you that the MOKiN does NOT work.
