I was hoping someone had an answer for me about getting a power cord that will work in Japan. I'm going for a year, and I don't want to mess about, I have a T61 Thinkpad here in the U.S. Is there a Lenovo power accessory so that my computer could be plugged directly into the walls there? I've heard and read that Japan has 100V outlets and while the AC adaptor that I have seems to be fine for plugging into the walls in Japan, I've read that "sensitive equipment" could be damaged, and I want to ensure that it will not happen to my computer.
Thank you for any help that you can provide.

The Lenovo power adapter is for 100 to 250 V... it will automatically switch depending on the voltage, so every country use this adapter, Japanese customer would also use the same adapter as you...
The only thing you need is to change the actual plug that goes into the AC socket, a travel adapter would be okay.
This is what the japan use, i think it is similar to the USA configuration? (there are two types sold in USA, one is with ground and another is without earth)...
which one do you have?
