Need Lenovo Yellow Power adapter connector information, its a MYSTERY to me!!

2017-08-07, 1:06 AM

Hello all, I recently just purchased my first Lenovo products with the new Yellow rectangular power adapter. 


I have the Lenovo M900 Tiny desktop and the Lenovo 23 inch 10dqd monitor. Each have the Lenovo rectangular Yellow Power conectors.

I I am trying to understand how these connectors can be installed in either direction and still have the correct  polarity.


Here are  information that I have researched so far on the internet regading these style connectors.


1. The Lenovo power connectors are called "TRIM Series connecotrs some manufacturers label the connector C36.


2. The connector interior  has two copper plates on each small side of the rectangular connector and a CENTER pin that some manufacturers have labeld the DATA connetion.


3. The Yellow connector at the end of the Power adapter is supplying 20VDC and the current rating of the adapter is proportional to the device it is connected . Ratings usually are in power 35W, 65W , and a 135Watt,


I hope someone can explain how the Power adapter connector can be inserted in either direction , and still supply the correct polarity to the Leveno product?


Thanks Rob
