The range of plugs shown on the page above (which is a page I gave you in a prior question) certainly appears to have the flat plug as one of its options.

So, in other words, it has a USB C type power plug, right?

The reason I posted this question is because I currently don't have one of the laptops with me and I want to make sure I am recommending the right type.

It is not a USB plug, it is a flat DC plug, ground outside, and power to the center pin.

Does this type of plug have a particular name?

To the best of my knowledge it does not have a commercial name. IBM / Lenovo change plug types to prevent incorrect voltages being connected. The flat (instead of round) connector came out with the thin machines.

You need to tell the supplier you are purchasing from what model of machine you are going to connect it to so that they may assure you it will work
