Thinkpad W510 and W530 accessories compatibility

Hello all,

From a previous post, I found that accessories such as the power adapter and docking station will not work between the Lenovo Thinkpad W510 and W540 models. Instead, are they compatible between a W510 and W530 and if not, how about a W510 and W520?

No. W530 and W520 use the same docks and AC adapters; W510 uses different ones. All 3 have the same shape of battery, but the W530 needs one with an additional chip. A W530 battery will work in any of them. Nothing fits a W540.  The only difference in the dock on the T510 (vs. T520, T530) is the AC jack is keyed for the 170W adapter.

Ah, I guess I'll need to get some new accessories then. Thank you for the information.

There was a typo in my answer. I updated it
