Modded my x270: Now I can charge it via USB-C and still have the built-in USB-C port available for other stuff.

It’s this mod by mikepdiy:

(It fits perfectly fine, the gap is from my broken bottom cover.)

@vidister I thought doing this with my too, but the builtin USB-C connector isn't very special anyway. My other laptop has two USB-C ports and I never used both at the same time yet. Have you any use case for this or is it just nice to have?

I like the Idea of an easy and cheap replaceable Charging Pot. My other USB-C Connectors are on the mainboard, so its expensive to replace or more complex to fix.

@waschtl Also, every few kernel updates USB-C charging bugs around on the x270.. @clerie
