Yoga 920 power bank requirements

Q: Yoga 920 power bank requirements

I want to get a power bank that can charge my Yoga 920 via USB-C. What are the requirements for a power bank to do this? Power Delivery? A certain voltage? something else? I don't want to order one only to find it won't charge the laptop. For example, I'm considering the iWALK Secretary II 10000 mah Power Bank. Thanks!

Given the X1 Yoga 2017 charges via its USB C/thunderbolt ports, I was wondering whether I could pick up a power bank to charge the device on the go Can anyone recommend a power bank that has enough juice to recharge this laptop? (doesn't have to be a full recharge) I'm not really sure what I'm meant to be looking at when it comes to power banks, let alone ones that are intended for laptop recharging

Just got a Yoga 700-11ISK. It's great. Love it. Want to know how I can charge it from a power bank. The battery life is good-not-great. I know it needs 20v. If I snagged a 24v power bank and used the USB C cable,  would I get a charge? Anyone have alternate suggestions? I'll solder together something totally unsafe if need be.

A:Yoga 700 - How do I charge it from a power bank?

I am getting some info from the Lenovo team on the USB Type C port if it supports audio, video or whatever application however seems to be that the Type C is just another USB port for portable devices such as external HDD.There have been discussions about charging the laptop via Type C however I don't think you can as its only suppose to charge via the AC port. Don't fry the mobo mate.

Hi everyone,  I am trying to find out if the yoga 3 pro has the ability to be charged using a power bank and the original lenovo power cord ( usb adapter). The power bank i am trying to use is a unifun power bank i have also tried the mophie with the dual usb port for smartphone/tablet.  The specs for the unifun power bank are Specification:?Model: U821 ?Capacity: 10400mAh ?Input: 5V/2A ?Out1: 5V/1A(MAX) ?Out2: 5V/2 .1A(MAX)  Or if there is a power bank out there that does charge the yoga 3 pro what is it?  Thank you,

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.
 
Regards.

Greetings from Portugal. I'd just like to say that i've found a powerbank that can be used with the 900s (and probably others that use the same charger). The one i found, and can confirm charges the laptop, is "RAVPower 27000mAH Powerstation" that i found on amazon.It's a powerbank with a regular power plug to connect the charger, so it could be called a mini ups instead of a powerbank. Hope this helps people looking for something similar.

My system shipped with 128GB mSATA SSD drive. Plan to add a second drive in the open slot 2. Have done this before on other systems I've owned so should not be a challenge. I've read most of the posts on this issue but I'm not sure of the storage size limit that can be used on a 2nd drive.  I spoke with Lenovo tech support but did not get a very "warm" feeling that he was sure of his answer. I was told that the 2nd drive could only be 128GB, same as my original drive in slot one. Max size of the 2 drives could not exceed 256GB.  From what I am reading, I don't believe his answer is correct. Does anyone know from actual experience what is the maximum size storage I can use for a 2nd SSD drive in slot 2?  I would like to use either 256GB or 512GB depending on the costs. If you have a suggestions of make and model, that would also be much appreciated. I can't say Lenovo tech gave me much confidence on this issue. I trust real world support and experience far better.

You can find a huge collection by searching ?power banks for laptops? on a search engine. You just need to compare things like capacity, weight, and price.  The power bank should have a USB standard charging port and a DC output port as well.

I am specifically interested in the BUS powered capability of them so I can use just one cable to connect to the PC. There is a note on the page that says that someolder PC's don't have enough BUS power to power up the units. My PC's are about 3 years old USB2.0 DELL Precision Workstations 530 and 650. How would I find out the BUS power output from these machines and what is needed to run the drives?

A:Bus Power Requirements

A 3 yr old Dell desktop will most likely have plenty of power to run if Windows 2000 or XP
on one of those drives. Make sure that when you go into Control panel, Ssystem, hardware, Device manager that if you open usb controllers on bottom, one of them has usb enhanced or usb enhanced 2.0 listed. if not click update driver if you are at least SP1 or higher or Sp4 for 2000 ,a nd it should add the driver in. otherwise you would,need a usb 2.0 pci card because it would be slow as mud to transfer. Personally I use firewire, far less problems.

Would having a dual processor in my new build hold any special requires as far as PS goes? Is there a particular aspect or feature in a PS i should be looking for? Or does it not matter?

Also I want a very quiet one. Can you recommend the best brands for that?

Oh yeah, and one more question...Do dual processors (specifically pentium D) run cooler or hotter than the P4s? Could I get a cool quiet case (like the P150 from antec) or would that be a bad idea due to venting concerns?
 

A:power supply requirements

The pentium Ds are a little hotter.

Look for PSUs from Antec, Enermax, and Thermaltake.
They market their quiet PSUs as such.

As far as what to look for, a higher wattage and a good voltage on the 12v rail.

How much power does the HP dv8000 laptop require? I think I need to buy a
new dc (car lighter) to ac adapter. I currently have a Targus car adapter
that claims it puts out 90w, but it seems to beep constantly telling me that
the device (laptop) is drawing too much power. I have the car ignition in
the accessory position, and have to actually start the car to have the
beeping stop. The car battery is brand new and has a battery that is rated
much higher than the factory battery.

I just want to be able to use my laptop with the AC adaptor while in the
car, without having to start the car to get enough power. If I decide to
buy a new dc to ac adapter, how much wattage output would I require? My
current Targus claims 90w but I've seen models claiming to put out up to
400w.
