W520 Int'l Power Question

2012-02-22, 16:38 PM

Hello beautiful folks of the lenovo community. 

 

I am traveling oversees next week to Doha, Qatar where the power outlets are 220V with either the Indian or UK plug head.

 

Will the 520's power brick switch over the voltage, or should I bring my step down converter for good measure?

 

Cheers,

Dylan

The "power brick" should work just fine.

The adapter is 100V-240V capable, as well as 50Hz/60Hz capable, so you should be fine. Do remember to bring a plug adapter as the plugs will likely be differently shaped.

For travelling I bought a 135W power brick because of its somewhat smaller size. Same weight though. Works great.
