February 7, 2008 High-tech travelers often end up with more plugs, cords and cables than they care to carry, just to charge their suite of mobile devices. Lenovo's latest effort aimed at lightening this load is an all-in-one adapter designed to charge laptops and other electronic devices such as cell phones, PDAs and mobile music players.
The ThinkPad and IdeaPad 90W slim AC/DC combo adapter is half and inch thick and small enough to easily fit into a shirt pocket. The adapter allows users to charge current and legacy ThinkPads, IdeaPads, most major PDAs and phones and even two devices at once using optional connector tips.
An antidote to traditional power adapters for notebook PCs which are inconvenient to travel with, the Lenovo adapter is 25% lighter than the previous model and also allows frequent travelers to leave the usual array of chargers for other devices at home.
An optional dual-charging cable also allows more than one device to be charged at the same time.
The Lenovo ThinkPad and IdeaPad 90W slim AC/DC power adapter retails for USD$119.
