So... My thinkpad is having troubles! The USB C charge port is taking a very loose fit of the charge cable. I've ordered a new USB C charger and plan to clean the jack and see if the new cable works... If not, the machine is thankfully under warranty.
It's so frustrating. I've never had a laptop jack go out on me before. The power jack is probably the worst jack to fail of all them!
Another fix could be getting an external battery charger and installing an internal to handle hot swaps, but that's so janky and annoying. I really would rather not
/me throws nine11 a thinkpad
I have the same problem with my thinkpad and I dont think its a thinkpad issue and more of a usb c issue. I have to wiggle the power cable until it gets to a charging state. It is very scary to think that one time it might not charge and I wont be able to charge my laptop.
I was hoping usb c would be the new standard that propels our society forward but it seems to be another scam.
usb c isnt the problem, shitty materials/ engineering is.
not all usb c is equal.
if you are constantly inserting and removing usb c i have noticed a lot of issues. i have had many usb c cables become less effective with constant plugging and removing the cable such as phones or laptops. i dont think they were made to be constantly plugged in and removed thousands of times.
yes, that was my point.
