Helix Compatible AC Adapters

2013-06-28, 2:38 AM

What AC adapters are compatiable with the Helix? On the web site, 0B66260 is listed as an accessory. However, it looks like this has the round plug. Chat support says that it is not compatable. Will any ThinkPad AC adapter with the slim tip work? Will a 65W adapter charge the batteries faster than the 45W that the Helix ships with?

See this thread: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-ThinkPad-Laptops/Power-adapter-are-90-W-units-safe-to-use-with-Thinkpad-Helix/m-p/1099603/highlight/true#M19970

 

I am using the adapter that came with a Carbon X1 and it works fine.

Thanks. I saw that before posting. I was curious if all ThinkPad AC adapter had the same voltage rating and if a greater wattage charger would decrease the charging time on the Helix. I tend to doubt it would since the Helix does not have the fast charing system of the X1 Carbon.

 

Based on the referenced post, any slim tip (square) charger will work with the Helix?

As long as the tip fits the Helix (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/9132526093/) then it would work. Currently, you have the options of:

1. 45 Watts adapter
2. 65 Watts adapter
3. 90 Watts adapter
4. Slim tip with the 90 watts AC/DC Travel Power Adapter (as shown in the picture in the above link).

Do the Yoga AC adapters (0C19880, 45W or 0C19868, 65W) work with the Helix? They have the rectangle plug but I can't tell if it is the same as the Helix.

 

Based on the above replies the options appear to be:

 

0B47030* 45W Helix standard charger

0A36258 65W

0B47455 65W - Low profile

0B46994 90W  X1 standard charger

41R4493* with 0B47048 adapter, 90W ac/dc ultraslim

 

* only chargers listed by Lenovo as accessories

Will the Helix's batteries charge faster with a 65W AC adapter? Will OC19868 work with the Helix?
