Third party USB-C charger for Carbon X1 5th Gen

2018-04-06, 17:47 PM

Hi All, 

 

For my laptop the official Lenovo 65W Standard AC Adapter (USB Type-C)- UK/Ireland seems to be this one

However, for the convenience of extra USB ports, I am considering to a third party alternative by ANKER - this one

 

The ANKER is 60W, no 65W. In practise, does this make a difference? Is there a strong practical reason to choose the original Lenovo over Anker?

This Anker won't work with your Lenovo laptop.  It only outputs 30W max on USB-C.  I have this ZeroLemon adapter and it works great!  I've used it in Japan, U.S., and in Europe.

Thank you, good to know about only powering 30W on USB-C. I guess the 60W is slightly sneaky advertising.

 

Unfortunately the zerolemon is not available in the UK it seems...

 

Is there any disadvantage over the lenovo charger? For instance, does rapid charge work just as well?

This charger claims to have 60W on the USB-C port.
