I'm searching for what seems to be a unicorn: a light-weight power supply to replace the typical 90W PSU (~390 g main unit + ~190g schuko cable).
Lenovo indeed has a ~200g wall-mount (AC plug integrated into main unit) unit for newer thinkpads, but I'm unable to find an adapter cable anywhere... no EU store has it (searched mostly through geizhals), china (ebay,ali) doesen't have it.
There is an universal power supply called the FSP twinkle (~185g), but it is apparently obsolete and no longer available either in Europe or China.
Similarly, there is a really interesting PSU called the Finsix Dart (<=150g), but it is only available in the USA and expensive. It would also require me to use of those US-to-europlug adapterselectric shock hazards.
There is also the FSP NB Lite (200g without two pole AC cable), but carrying an AC cable is so awkward, even if it is not a massive grounded one. Edit: unobtainium as well...
Any suggestions? My back is breaking under the sheer weight of those darn power supplies! Is it not enough to carry a 2.5kg thinkpad?!

Try this: https://lenovoquickpick.com/aut/accesso ... sb-port-eu
Buy it in e.g. Austria, Croatia or Italy (not available in Slovenia).
There is also a cheaper version of the same adapter, where you yourself just need to replace the laptop-plug:

Don't know if this is also available in Europe

What bugs me is that now we have compact Power Delivery adapters like this one: https://www.icases.ru/upload/iblock/690 ... 2207dc.jpg (it is rated at 58W total, 45W on Power Delivery port and another 10W on QuickCharge port), but we have to carry around our 65W bricks with their heavy 3-pin AC cables...
