P51 Docking station



I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 ‑ Dock (40AC0135US) for my P51, the problem is the docking station is not powering up the laptop using the thunderbolt cable. I have to plugin the power adatpor too. 


Any ideas why this is happening ?

Re: P51 Docking station

Hi Mohammed87,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.


According to Lenovo, Thunderbolt 3 Dock is not compatible with Mobile Workstation P51 as this dock can only provide power to systems up to 65W. Because the power needs of the P51 (170W) cannot be met through the Thunderbolt 3 dock.


I hope the above information helped you.
