Thinkpad L390 Yoga Dock Recommendation

#1 Post by jon617 » Sun Sep 01, 2019 1:24 pm

Just ordered a Thinkpad L390 Yoga, an upgrade from my old X230 Tablet. Excited to get it this week!

I had been using a Lenovo Docking Station that connects to the bottom-side of the X230 Tablet, which provided both charging power and connected an external keyboard, mouse, keyboard, and headphone jack while being easy to attach/detach. Super convenient at my work desk!

I'm looking for a similar dock for the L390 Yoga, that would be just as easy to plug in/out - a single cable, hopefully!

Can anyone recommend a USB-C docking station for the Thinkpad L390 Yoga that can use one USB-C cable which can BOTH charge the laptop AND provide keyboard, video, mouse, and headphone connection? Or, is it only possible to use 2 cables (one for charging the laptop, one for a monitor/mouse/keyboard/headphone dock). I have looked at dozens of USB-C docks on Amazon, and can't seem to figure out which ones can connect power and peripherals using a single connection.

Is a Lenovo Thinkpad USB-C Dock the only dock that can?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
