T480 + Hybrid dock not charging

2019-01-24, 18:10 PM

Hello,

I've just bought T480 with Thunderbolt 3 Lenovo USB-C hybrid dock and my laptop is not charing when connected to dock. External monitor and other devices connected to dock work fine, but laptop even do not recognize dock as charger. It acts like it running completely of battery. Where can be a problem? Thank you

Hello,
I was not using 135W adapter packed with dock, but 90W from my previous T450. When I had switched it for 135W, dock have started to charge my laptop :)

Hi Lordiik! Welcome to our forums community. Could you provide to us the Model of the  docking station for us to check the the compatibility since there are 2 type of Thinkpad T480. Base on this: https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/docksSearch/, the 20L6 type model is the only T480 compatible with the ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C with USB-A Dock (American Standard Plug Type B). Let us know.
