I am about to purchase an HP docking station & an HP AC 90W adapter for the dock. How do I get power from the dock to the laptop? I assume that I will need a male-to-male cable. How do I find this type of cable? Is this a standard cable?

Are you using an HP laptop?
Because if so, I presume that it will have a power output for an HP laptop anyway
If you were using a different make of laptop, however, you probably would need an extra cable, or possibly an adapter instead

The HP docking station provides power for the laptop.

Ya, but watch out. It may only provide 65W. HP has 65W and 90W AC adapters.

Thanks for your help. The existing HP adapter is 90W. I am going to order the docking station from Costco.
