MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FINsix Corporation (FINsix), the worldwide leader in high-frequency power electronics, today announced its partnership with Lenovo, the largest PC manufacturer in the world, to bring Lenovo’s global customers the smallest ever 65W charger option for ThinkPad laptops.
The two companies have collaborated under a joint development agreement, and Lenovo is set to offer the new charger, dubbed the ThinkPad 65W Micro Adapter, as an option for the newly announced ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga.
