    What functionality does the USB-C port support in terms of video, data, and/or charging the laptop?

    Edit: Apparently it’s a data-only port. New question: Is there an alternative charger that will work with this laptop? Not a fan of the wall wart especially since the prongs don’t fold like they do on Apple and other systems.

    Lenovo makes another more conventional charger. On my trip I used a 99Wh battery pack with direct 20V output.

    Basically, any 65W charger with 20V and the correct plug will work.

    I found a third-party unit on Amazon for $20 that has retractable prongs, so as soon as I get my rewards points credit this month, I'm going to go ahead and pick it up. I'll stash the charger that came with the laptop away as a backup.
