x1 1st gen docking solution on ac adaptor

I travel back and forth alot and I can not carry a power cord all the time.  I know that the USB 3.0 dock doesnt charge the laptop when plug into the laptop and required to be seperately pluged in to the power to charge which is a pain in the butt for me is there any solution on any docks that works on the 1st gen x1 that does not require the power cord plug into the laptop??


In addition can i just plug into the dock with the laptop case close and have my monitor on??  I really miss my old school docking station of the T430 just push in and everything works....  Please help!!

Re: x1 1st gen docking solution on ac adaptor

Hello, Could you share the MTM of your machine? As the 1st gen X1 is very old, ship support in 2012, so want to double confirm with you first.


If you attached extend monitor, you can use extend only with laptop lid close, only need to set Lid close as do nothing in Power Option -> Choose what closing the lid does -> When I close the lid -> do nothing.
