Yoga X1 Gen 4 - power via Dell 3818DW Monitor (Power Delivery 2.0, supporting 100W)?

2020-03-13, 7:47 AM

Hi,

 

I bought the Yoga X1 Gen 4 and so far I use the 65 Watt power adapter.

 

Can I use the Typ-C cable from my Dell 3818DW Monitor which supports Power Delivery 2.0 (up to 100W) as the power adapter?

 

Does anyone has experience with such a minitor power supply?

 

Dell says it is possible but maybe the I could damage the battery of the Yoga X1.

Hi yoga-x1-daddy, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

I power X1 Carbons and Yogas via third-party USB-C supplies with no issues (e.g. LG monitor, Satechi power supply, ...). Not all USB-C supplies/power delivery ports provide the correct voltage and amperage, but if the Dell monitor charges the Yoga, I would say you're good to go. 

 

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your fast reply. I was just curious whether there is a "bad" and "good" way of power supply. I don't want to damage the battery. Even if the Dell charges the battery, due to power delivery, i wanted to be sure as it is as good as using the original cable. That would mean that Power Delivery technology adapts the power supply depending on the needs of a same standard?!

Modern power supply and charging circuitry is pretty robust, and I wouldn't worry about it!
