Docking Stations for X1 Carbon (4th Gen)

2017-03-14, 21:01 PM

Hi,

 

I recently bought a X1 carbon (4th generation) and bough myself a one link Pro Dock. Unfortunately I have now realised that the plug does not fit into any of my laptop sockets. My fault Should have done my research. I have now  realised I should have bought a link+ docking station. Can I still somehow use this station? I can't return it anymore but I am not sure how I get it connected to my laptop. Pictures of my current plug and socket are attached.

 

Solved! See the solution

How about this one? (OneLink+ Dock, type 40A4)

It is the same one I use with my ThinkPad Yoga 260

Yes that would have been the right one which I should have bought!

 

My question is if there anyway to use a one link docking station with a 4th generation X1 carbon given that I can't return that docking station anymore.

I'm fairly sure the answer is no.  Even if you could find connectors to make an adapter, the connector-pinouts are not available.

ok thanks. Pretty annoyed at myself. But I think Lenovo does not really make it clear that this dock does not work for the 4th generation.
