Maybe the most interesting thing is the center part of the female side is narrow enough to let a Dell plug go in, adapting Dell adapter to Lenovo laptop. Probably an HP too but I haven't tried that. It has "IBM" molded into it. It's only $1-2 or something total and comes from China. Arrived in only about a week! If anyone is interested and it's permitted I can put up a link to it.

My wife uses one on her laptop.
FYI: in most (if not all) the center pin/bush in that adapter are NOT connected internally, so a machine that checks for wattage may be deceived!
Check out The Boardroom for Parts, Mods and Other Services.
I checked the center with a meter and it is in fact not connected. They are populated though if somebody is wont to do surgery N.C. on the center pin is the same as 90W in Lenovo land so all adapters will be assumed to be 90W. The ad says not for charging, but in fact charging works fine (if 90W is enough). I bought a second one and both came in very quickly.
