Unfortunately my Laptop’s AC adapter died out, and my brother just brought another one home for me.

The specs for the original Adapter were
INPUT - 100-240V~ 1.5A 50-60HZ
OUTPUT - 18.5V 3.5A

and the new one i just got
INPUT - 100-240V ~ 1.5A 50-60HZ
OUTPUT - 18.5V 2.7A

The 2.7A is what im worried about, I’m not sure if this could harm my computer in ANYWAY?? and do you think i should get another adapter or continue using this new one?
Could someone plz help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

What is the make and model of your laptop? It maybe ok but the new adapter could over heat and that could cause some problems.

Hi,

the 2,7A instead of the 3,5A would make me worried either. I don’t think it will wreck your computer, but there might be issues that are due to overloading the PSU. But this depends on the configuration of your individual laptop. If it is equipped with chipset integrated graphics, then all should be fine. In case there is a rather powerful dedicated VGA installed, then the PSU might reach its technical limits.

Although it calls for a 65 watt adapter I think the one you have (50 watt) one should be fine, however it will probably be a little hotter than the original one. If you have an extra 25.00 usd then you could get a 65 watt one.
