Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2 Charging via phone charger

2017-10-14, 22:15 PM

Hi!
I have Samsung Galaxy S8. It have USB Type-C connector and charger which can deliver up to ~18W(?). I know from some sources that I can charge my phone via Laptop charger (it will step down voltages and amps accordingly). But I'm curious if it will work another way around. So if I can charge X1 Yoga 2 with Samsung Galaxy S8 charger?
Best Regards
Tomas.

Solved! See the solution

No.  You need 20V output, 45W

Hi all. I did buy HP Spectre x360 15". I want to say, that charger from my notebook charge my phone (obviously).... BUT! If notebook is turned off it can be charged via phone charger. This is QuckCharge from Samsung S8. It takes A LOT of time, but it works. Maybe it works similarly in this Thinkpads. If you have it, you should definitly test it out!
