Lenovo Thinkpad E-480 docking station power supply compatibility

2019-02-07, 15:30 PM


I've got a few clients with new Lenovo E-480s and USBC docking station that are having a lot of problems.  Wifi, monitor issues, general performance quality, etc.  After trying bios updates and new drivers I'm still having problems.  I thought to look at the power supplies and have a new question.


Docking stations are dk1522.  Power brick for those are model ADLX45NDC2A

Power brick for laptop is model ADLX65YLC2A

The brick that comes with the laptop is a 65 watt brick.   20v at 3.25a

The brick that comes with the docking station is a 45 watt brick 20v at 2.25a


I suspect insufficient wattage is my problem.  Can someone confirm compatibility? 


Thank you
