I bought a dozen of "Original USB Condom"s. If anyone is interested I sell some for 8€ + shipping (I'm no earning from this); I'm based in Italy.
My #thinkpad X220 doesn't power on if no AC is connected and, once powered, if I plug off the AC it shutdowns immediately even if the battery is fully charged. What can it be!? `tlp -b` shows all the statistics about the battery so I don't think it's faulty.

@sir I setup an acpid action to disable my laptop screen when I connect it to the dock station. I'm using this command (acpid runs as root) to disable it:
runuser -l andrea -c 'SWAYSOCK=/run/user/$(id -u)/sway-ipc.$(id -u).$(pidof sway).sock swaymsg "output LVDS-1 disable"'
