Q: can't identify power bank

Soo I got a power bank as a gift, however no brand name nor usage instruction was with it, and it's got only one LED indicator.
it's probably old one, so can you give me some tips?
I googled a few times and only came up only with 3-4 LED power bank instructions.
attached image is the bank, the other face is plain white, nothing much
thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: can't identify power bank

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Anyone have any suggestions for a power bank to use with the C930? This is the one I was taking a look at on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Power-Delivery-Charger-20000-Output/dp/B078RTGL35/ref=sr_1_3?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qi... The power bank is 45W. However, the C930 charge is 65W. According to the seller, it will work with the C930 but not charge as quickly as the older generation C920, which is 45W. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

A:Yoga 3 Pro / UNIFUN power bank

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
The Yoga 3 Pro looks for 20V input, 4x what that power bank can output. Also, the proprietary cable has extra contacts.
 
There may be power banks that can supply the proper voltage, but I think it unlikely that one has the proprietary receptacle configuration to match the cable.

Hi all, got this power bank (40AL140CWW) for my P1. It is listed as acceptable for the system on the Option Compatibility Matrix (January, 2019). Got it a while back, tested it, worked fine: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/9uyew4/fieldtesting_the_lenovo_usbc_14000mah_power_bank/ Using it today (charged yesterday) ... all four lights on the bank come on when I plug it into my P1, but, the system is behaving differently ... previously, the bank powered the unit and its LEDs went off one by one as the charge decreased; the main battery indicator on the bottom did not move off 95%. This time, the main battery indicator shows a decreasing level of charge, and so far, the bank still has four LEDs illuminated. Even weirder, the "remaining time" at one point seemed to indicate the battery was present (showing 8+ hours remaining) but now, even that has changed, and the system is acting like there is no power bank installed at all (shows 3 hours and 33 min [77%] remaining.) I am using the USB-C power cord that came with the bank. Is it defective? TIA, -kj-

Hello,

This problem is from a friend of mine but he doesn't has a computer now. Yesterday he was charging his powerbank through his Laptop (Asus bought 3 months ago) USB port. After a while the computer was shutdown and won't turn on, even when it's plugged through its power adapter.

Is there any solution to this?
Thanks!
 

A:Laptop wont turn on after charging power bank

Hi and welcome to TSG.

As annoying as it can be to have to do it, your best option if it appears totally dead is to RMA the laptop if it is only 3 months old. Fiddling about with it too much trying to diagnose the problem could end up invalidating any warranty your friend has.

The only simple checks I would do are to try and power it up with and without the power cord connected.
Then remove the battery (assuming it is a removable one) and try it again with the power adapter attached.

It could be a problem with the laptop or that the power brick has just failed, it happens occasionally.

Hello Everyone, I am considering the purchase of a specific power bank for my L540 laptop. The product is the Vinsic 30000mah. I can't seem to get clarification on whether my Lenovo laptop will successfully hook up with the PB and take the charge. As far as I can tell, the PB has a lot of muscle and is well-recommended. The PB comes with 8 adaptors; for Lenovo products it lists a  7.9*10 mm adaptor. It says it has 3 output ports: 1 DC output up to 19V 3.5A, with a max output current of 4.5A; and 2 Smart USB outputs, with output up to 5V 2.4A.  It also says it has 2 Input ports: 1 DC input and 1 Micro USB input. I am uncertain if the specs on my L540 make it compatible with the features listed shown above. Can someone with expertise advise me if I'm Ok to go ahead with the purchase based on the features? Many thanks!

I am looking for a power supply that is adaptable to 12-volt and 110-volt source for my Dell Latitude D520. I am having a problem with identifying its tip (that plugs into the laptop). I know these things have names or numbers; but, I have no way of identifying mine.

Checking its dimensions with a digital caliper, the outside diameter of its barrel is appx 7.37mm or 0.29 inches. The inside diameter of its barrel (to the best of my ability to measure it with this tool) is 4.9 mm or 0.2 inches. The pin in the center is wire thin, possibly smaller than a mechanical pencil's fine lead.

The charger I'm looking at presently is this one; but, I might change my mind as I haven't satisfied myself this is the best I can do for the capacity and the money. I would really rather have one with a 120- to 140-watt rating; but, that's beside the point of my question right now.

I have included a scan of the charger's tip that fits.

It's called "phishing". I'm sure the bank is aware of it as is every major business institution has been affected. You've already reported it to the bank, and I assure you they do care.
