power charger for T440

I have a bunch of 90 watt chargers but all have round head connectors. The newer charger for the T440 is a hex head. Is there an adaptor or pigtail like the old PS2 keyboard that went from a big round head to USB. I have a lot of new T440 Lenovo laptops and they all come with a hex head instead of round head that plugs into the laptop. Is there an adaptor that fits on the round head and changes to the hex head? This would save me a ton of money to not have to buy all new chargers that come with the hex head. Lenovo really is padding their pockets on this. I have a ton of chargers that have the round head and are 90 watt. If I could find the pig tail attachment to convert the round head to the hex head, I could save a lot of money not having to but the new charger just because it has a hex head.

My man or woman, matters not. If this works you will be a hero here. I just sent this to my procurement guy. I have a ton of old round head connectors for the T430 but they changed the head on the T440s to that hex head and if the user wants to have a charger at home to work, I will run out of the new heads but have plenty of chargers with the round head and if this fits, man am I happy. Saved the company and look real good doing it. I will let you know but it sure does look like the winner.
