Slim Lenovo AC/DC adapter
ThinkPad maker Lenovo has released a new AC/DC combo power adapter, one which differs substantially from most currently on the market. Where many power adapters are typically brick-shaped and possibly fairly heavy, Lenovo's new 90W adapter is only half an inch thick, and roughly the same in dimensions as a deck of playing cards. This makes it 33 percent smaller than Lenovo's last adapter, and crucially for travellers, 25 percent lighter as well.
The adapter is on sale now for $120, but is only shipping in three to four weeks. Accessories include a dual-charging cable, and power tips for a multitude of devices.
