Thinkpad charger interchangeability question

#1 Post by blinketysky » Sun Nov 24, 2019 3:47 am

Greetings everyone,

I have a quick question which may be pretty stupid and obvious, but as this relates to the longevity of my beloved ThinkPads I will ask it.

I have an x201 and a t420s. They both seem to have chargers that have the exact same output.

More specifically the AC chargers are both 65W 20V.

My question is can these be used interchangeably to charge the laptops?

It might be nice to have the chargers in separate rooms so when I'm using my 420s I can plug in in either room.

Or of course will this cause some sort of impediment to the devices?

I can upload a picture of the chargers if you think necessary.

Thanks for any input.

AND chargers are so inexpensive there is little reason NOT to have one in every room.. :)
and i just noticed that you're in OZ so prices might be not-so-cheap..
