Fortunately, it's just a new connector; the voltage levels stay the
same.  That means you can purchase something like this instead of
buying large numbers of new AC adapters:


Since they only cost $7 USD, I purchased a handful, so I could keep

conference rooms at $WORK have older Thinkpad adapters available at
the conference tables.
