P52 and ThinkPad USB 3.0 Pro Dock - Do I need a "big charger" when i use the small in the pro dock?

2018-10-25, 9:21 AM

Hi,

Do I need another charger when i have the "smaller" one plugged in the thinkpad USB 3.0? 
I have the USB cable plugged in into the computer (P52) but it wont charge.

It might be a retarded question but I am a desperate man.

BR

Hey hkjol,

USB 3.0 docks do not charge the machine, as there is not enough power to do so. For a P52, you'd need something like a:

-170/230W Workstation dock
-Thunderbolt 3 dock
-USB-C dock

I do not have the USB  3.0 pro dock but I see on page 5 of the user guide below.
