Re: W530 Power Adapters, 90W vs 135W Vs 170W

2017-09-29, 20:22 PM

Hi Dragon-Fly,

 

I am not good at electronic sholdering. I just got a W541 laptop for work and I travel. So carrying the laptop and the brick is very heavy. I have a 90W adapter from older T430. Can you make a cable for me to get the 90W adapter work with W541. I would pay for it. 

 

Thank you

SM007

It's a little disappointing that this thread has been around since 2012 and yet there still doesn't appear to be any commercially-available adapters with correct resistor values for the larger chargers.

 

I recently upgraded from a 2013-era W530 to a P50.  I have four 170W Lenovo-branded W530 chargers in various locations at home (upstairs and downstairs) and at work (in my office and in my lab).  As such, I really don't want to buy 3 additional 170W P50 chargers if the only thing preventing me from re-using the W530 chargers is the tip and resistor.

So in a word, if I use 90W charger for my W530 while using, does the laptop draw power from the charger (use power from charger only) or still use from the battery? I dont need to charge my battery while using my laptop, I just want it to stop draining juice from my battery. I dont mind charging my laptop when it's in sleep state.

 

P/S: I know this topic was created far from now (2018), but can anyone here sell this final customized charger (90W)? I'm living in Vancouver, Canada and I'm willing to buy if anyone has some businesses. Thanks!
