230W AC adapter for W700/W701

Hi, I was wondering which of the W700/W701 models actually require the 230W ac adapter, I want to get a used W700 and am wondering if I need the 170 or 230 type. 


Thank you!

Re: 230W AC adapter for W700/W701

Hi Paul,

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

As I understand that you have query regarding W700/W701 AC Adapter.

For normal uses you can use 170W and if you are using system with ThinkPad W700 Mini Dock 2.0 you can use 230W.


So our suggestion will be to go for 170 W Adapter only unless you are using system with its Mini Dock 2.0


I hope the above information helps.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!
