thunderbolt dock 3 won't charge t580

2019-01-05, 22:55 PM

My thunderbolt 3 (135watt) dock will not charge my T580 intel core i7-8650 laptop while displaying on 2 monitors.  Tried only 1 monitor and still won't charge.  About 3 months ago first got a message that insufficient power to thunderbolt dock.  Warranty replaced the dock last week and still won't work.  I took the laptop to work since I have an identical rig and it charges and displays (only 1 monitor but will also charge an iphone).  I brought a new 135w charger home and that didnt help.  Also replaced little cord from thunderbolt to T580 and that didn't work.  I even tried a different outlet on a different circuit and that doesn't help.  Could it be that the i7-8650 needs the 230W thunderbolt?
