As far as I know, there's no external charger available for batteries beyond the T/W x30 series. I got one of those old Lenovo chargers (40Y7625) fpr my W530, but as you can see, the charger had been withdrawn from market in 2014. Lenovo doesn't list your battery as compatible. This is also mentioned in this thread by a moderator.

But: it seems that you can use this charger with some caveats. See this post here.

I'm not aware of any new external charger on the market. Whilste integration a built-in battery in newer models, you can charge and change your plug-in battery without shutting down your notebook. So it seems they decided to ditch an external charging option.
