New Wireless Charges For Lenovo Laptop

Lenovo announced a new product called the Go Wireless Charging Kit, which lets you retrofit wireless charging functionality to a wide variety of laptops. It makes use of Power by Contact technology from Energy Square, rather than the more common Qi standard.

The Wireless Charging kit consists of a 3.2mm-thick brushed metal charging mat that you plug into the wall and leave at your desk, as well as a long wireless charging receiver that attaches to the base of your laptop and connects over USB-C. Lenovo says it should charge most 13-inch to 14-inch non-touch notebooks of up to 65W” with an efficiency of 93%, and it’ll work with both Windows and macOS devices.

Wireless charging on laptops is pretty rare. Dell released what it called the world’s first wirelessly charging 2-in-1, the Latitude 7285, in 2017, although it was more of a tablet that could be charged through a keyboard base. Intel also made efforts to integrate the Rezence magnetic resonance charging standard into its laptop specifications, but nothing was ever released commercially.

Lenovo will release the Go Wireless Charging Kit in October for $139.99. It’s part of a new range of Go-branded mobile accessories including a Qi-equipped power bank, wireless mice, headphones, and keyboards. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, the company’s first flagship laptop with a folding display, was launched in India on Tuesday. The ThinkPad X1 Fold features a multilink torque hinge that enables the folding design. The company also provided a Bluetooth Mini Fold Keyboard that nests inside the fold and wireless charges when it sits on top of the screen. The ThinkPad X1 Fold also doubles as a tablet when unfolded.
