Please subscribe to be notified once it is available only if you are decided to purchase once it becomes available. Now I can not get one IC due to Novel Corona Virus shipping restrictions but I am working hard to get this compoment. I will update the product page immediately once I get further updates. Right now they told me that they should be able to send the IC's on the 18th of Februrary. Thank you for the patience and interest shown in the product!
I need to order the parts according to your subscriptions in the notification list on tindie as I manufacture these in my lab and also I have a plastics supplier where I have to order the cases. Thank you for your support !
1st batch it will take about 6-7 days to ship but after that I will ship in 2-3 days.
This board will be shipped to you in the case required to be a simple "drop-in" or swap replacement for your Lenovo Thinkpad T450 X240 X250 X260 and for that matter any laptop that uses the same connector(http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Power_Connector). You will need to disassemble the laptop but the good part is that you will only need to replace this module instead of soldering wires.
I made this board because I have fallen in love with the Type-C connector and the Power Delivery protocol but also because my video on the X230 type-c connector got a lot of requests for this type of connector too. Many things can be said in the support of this statement but long story short, I just love to travel with maximum 2 cables and 1 or 2 power bricks depending on the number of devices I carrry; bonus fact, I can charge my laptop from the same power bank(45w PD enabled) that charges my phone. Another driving reason to design this module was my youtube audience that wanted a way to use PD on their Lenovo laptops but without the need to solder and use hot glue( as I did in my first mod).
This module is designed and tested by myself and I have tested it in quite harsh conditions. I am doing the assembly by hand, inspect every board under the microscope, test every single board before inserting it in the case and test again once it is in the case. It is an easy replacement and a nice way to upgrade your beloved Lenovo Thinkpad T450 X240 X250 X260 and others that use the same connector and need max 100W to today's connectivity for charging plus it helps you reduce the amount of chargers and cables that you have to carry in your backpack or for a trip.
We have a 45W, 65W and a 90W version. Please pay attention what you order because normally your laptop identifies the charger by an ID pin. That is no longer possible using the PD charging and I have built 3 versions of this board so you can buy the version you need . Once you buy the adapter from me, you will have to buy a PD charger/brick from a store , the brick output power should match at minimum the adapter's rating. If you buy a 45w or 65W module from me than you need at least a 65W PD charger with 20V and 3.25Amp output. If you buy a 90W module from me than you need at least a 90W PD charger with 20V and 4.5Amp output. If you will use a smaller output power brick than the power of the module, depending on the quality of your brick, you will notice : - Slower or NO charge - Brick over heating - Laptop unable to charge at all If you need to use a lower power brick, I recommend to charge your battery with the laptop turned off/in stanbdy at least until it gets 50% battery.
A longer explnation about this is in the linked Youtube video also.
Fully assembled(including white plastic case) and tested module *I can also 3D print with PLA the plastic case in black or green but please check the pictures to decide if FDM PLA printing is something you would like to have. *
