ThinkPad Thunderbolt Dock wont sufficiently charge ThinkPad X1 Tablet 3rd Gen

2019-05-29, 15:50 PM

Purchased a thunderbolt dock 40AC0135US (135Watt) to use with a new ThinkPad X1 Tablet 3rd Gen to run (2) screens and provide multiple usb ports when in the office. It runs the (2) screens fine but I get an error message when plug the thunderbolt cable into the tablet that the current power supply is insufficient to charge the tablet. Did I purchase the wrong dock to use with the X1 Tablet?

Can't belive I didn't see the 40AC0135US dock does NOT provide output power to charge the X1 tablet:smileysad:

I see now that I should have purchased the 40AN0135US dock that provides 90W of output power. Looks like I will find out how well returns to Lenovo work....

If you are looking for some extra graphical oomph for game playing, check on my post about using the Graphics dock with the X1 Tablet.  So far, it is working great.  Lenovo doesn't advertise support for the tablet and this dock but it runs dual 4k monitors and charges from the one Thunderbolt connection.
