I am able to utilize the p-2140 to successfully power my laptop(+20 on primary out for the docking station), and External 600GB Hard drive(+12 on the secondary out). I there any utilizing a carnetix to power a laptop as well as charge its battery?

    What is the required input voltage for the docking station? Check the output voltage on the power brick for the dock.

    What type of dock are you using? Got a link?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
