I have a Thinkpad W500 with a 90W AC adapter (for use in the US). I'd like to know whether by buying a power cord for use in Europe from a third party seller will I be able to use my notebook (with the same 90W AC adapter) in Europe.

Is US-to-EU type plug sufficient for converting AC adapter power cord (that has US type plug) to be suitable for European users?
US-to-EU plug would be like this one: http://www.sangyug.com/products.php?product=Plugs-MWV2F
Or is it necessary to buy the whole power cord provided by Lenovo that is suitable for use in Europe so the AC adapter would function properly? The AC adapter is 170W (provided with ThinkPad W520; laptop was bought in US).

Hi and welcome to the forum tandem3,
It's a worldwide adapter per lenovo specifications:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-76762
Lenovo adapter that says 100-240V input can be safely plugged into a wall outlet using travel plug. I've a US adapter that plugs directly into wall outlet.
Hope this helps.

I have a similar question - I see the adaptor does say 100-240V on it, but then the plug that comes with it says on it 125V. Can that be plugged in without a transformer in 240V?
