Lenovo 0A36227 AC Adapter - 110 V AC, 220 V AC Input is rated out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Huge! This thing is HUGE. I don't travel often but when I do my distain for this monstrosity deepens. At meetings everyone else pulls out their svelte AC adaptors and then guffaws when I hoist out this out of my laptop bag. I'm on the site looking for anything to replace it but, alas, I've come to understand there is nothing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Are you kidding? Lenovo inexplicably changed the adapter head from round to square for the latest version of this workstation (the W540), meaning the older (round) version will be more difficult to acquire. Because (as you can see from the reviews) these adapters are very unreliable, this will force users to shell out over $100 for a spare, unless they want their workstation to become entirely unusable. Great support Lenovo!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Cheap knock-off? The original seems to work fine; ordered a second from a non-Lenovo website; product looks similar but has a tiny paper seal across the seam with Asian lettering; AND it doesn't work; AND the company has a 'Returns' section on its website lacking any actual contact information; so I'm wondering if the other reviews here citing product failure indicate Lenovo (unknowingly?) is also selling bogus adapters; I hope not cuz I just ordered a 3rd directly from Lenovo.com in hopes of getting one in working order, or that can be returned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Emmy from Hate the charger So I have had my Lenovo Thinkpad Twist for about a year now and I like it. However I have had to go through four stupid chargers that are bulky and keep breaking. None of them last longer than five months and I just hopped into bed to find out that it's broken!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lore from Major Disappointment I acquired two of these adapters in Jan. 2013. One is dead after 14 months - really??. Never had an adapter fail me before.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TB1750 from Going back to the stone age This adapter is crazy. I have never had an AC adapter this large and heavy. There are NO alternatives either so think before you buy the W Series

Rated 3 out of 5 by PowerUser from It's a paver It functions well, but from a human factors point of view, it's a brick. The engineering team could do better. Slow the charging to a trickle when running the machine if you have to and make it an optional accessory, but please give us a smaller, lighter power supply alternative to this one.
