P51 Docking station

2017-09-01, 0:40 AM

Hello,

 

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 ?

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. 

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


Regards,
Prabhansh
