ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 Intel (15") Docking Station

2021-07-07, 15:44 PM

Is there a docking station that can charge my ThinkPad X1 Extreme through the USB C connection without the need for an additional power source?

USB-C alone cannot carry enough power to meet the X1 Extreme's needs.
USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.
I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Every docking station with more than 60W powerdelivery will work.

 

Note however, that with 65w powerdelivery it's still possible to manage to drain the battery enough, so that even normal office work might occasionally empty the battery. With 75-100W powerdelivery you should be safe for anything except the most demanding work. For extremely power demanding work, you need 135W powersupply.

 

And that's more than currently available through usb-c. In this case you need the thunderbolt Workstation Dock
