Is this the best option to charge my X1 Carbon Lenovo laptop? I want a cheap option but don't want to risk screwing up my nice new laptop either. It doesn't even have to be portable as I'll keep the Lenovo for the road and just leave this one by my bed/couch.

Yeah, it's probably a much better deal than OP considering it includes a USB-IF certified USB-C cable (60W), which usually costs another $15.

It would be a good option for sure, I have 2 now. 60w charging on USB C and 12w shared for USB-A. Biggest thing is the device is USB-IF Certified. Most of these are not and that's risky (check google for things blowing up)

the one called out is an old 6 port one that doesn't follow USB-PD spec. this one doesetherboy wrote: ↑ Not sure if still relevant, but be wary of high wattage/non-certified chargers:

I believe this Aukey one is specifically called out as being unsafe?

Which higher one?Torontosepia wrote: ↑ Power supply is all about safety. If you are gonna use these on the sofa or while laying on bed, better get a genuine adapter. A tear down from iFixit will show the amount of components apple uses to cover their ass (and yours)
I have the nextek ones. One 72w and the other a bit higher for the bigger laptop. And so far they have worked great. The wire that comes along is certified but is not very thick and they don't fit 100% into the slot. I use apple wires for nextek too.
I would never trust Aukey for powered. Have had bad experience with their products and customer service sucks.
Power supply in that kind of wattage is too risky to save money on.

For 99% of the situations, a true 60W charger with a good quality USB-C cable will be sufficient to charge your Lenovo Ideapad 730S while you are working on it.
