Can I use any charger for my Asus laptop?
No, but you can find universal laptop chargers online that are pretty cheap. Look for one that has the same power rating as your current charger (i.e. 60W, 90W, etc.) and one that has a tip that matches the one you’ve got from Asus and you’re all set. Always go with the manufacture charger.
What type of charger does an Asus laptop use?
USB C Type
How do I know what power cord to buy for my laptop?
Look for the amperage and the voltage required. Look up the model number online to find if there are compatible adapters available. The voltage and amperage of the adapter need to match the requirements of the laptop. Compare the connector type of the laptop adapter to any available adapters found online.
Are all laptop power cords the same?
Laptops can share power cords so long as the adapter’s wattage and connector tip is correct and compatible for each laptop you wish to use it with.
Can the wrong charger ruin your laptop?
Using a charger with the wrong voltage rating can potentially damage your laptop. This is typically caused by too high voltage. Using a charger with too low current rating might fry the power supply, but not the laptop. As the difference in voltage in this case is small, it should be OK.
Can I use a 19v charger for a 20v laptop?
Yes: technically it can be used, but you need a higher amount of power (watt). if the adapter is 19V 6A, it might start the PC but you will have strange side effects.
Can I use a 19v charger on a 19.5 V laptop?
Voltage: 19.5V and 19V is a relatively small voltage difference. It is most probably safe to use as long as: The current of the charger is the same or higher than that of the laptop. Laptops usually don’t draw the full power from the charger even when in use and being charged at the same time.
What happens if amperage is too high?
A higher voltage than a device is designed for will most likely blow up some components, but amperage is derived from how much current is actually drawn, based on the device’s resistance, so having “too much” is not a problem and will do no harm.
Can I use a 65 watt charger on a 90 watt laptop?
Yes, you can use a 90 watt ac adapter, a.k.a power charger, for your 65 watt-compatible laptop. It will actually charge your battery faster. But, and this is a big but, you cannot use a 19 Volt ac adapter on an 18.5 Volt-laptop.
Can I use a 65w charger instead of 45w HP?
As long as it is the same voltage and connector type you can use a higher watt adapter. It will charge the battery a bit faster but other than and the size of the brick you will see no difference. The laptop will only draw the current it needs while running.
Can I use a 90 watt charger on a 120 watt laptop?
The 120 Watt should last longer and be less prone to failure when used at a lower power output and my choice – However the 90 watt should also work fine. You should not use a 90 Watt brick if you need a 120 Watt brick.
Can I use a 45w charger instead of 90w?
If the output voltage is the same, you can use a 90W charger on a 45W laptop BUT cannot use a 45W charger on a 90W laptop. On the condition of same voltage, laptops and other devices will never overpowered. The amps you saw is the maximum one adapter is capable of, not the rated current.
Can I use a 60w charger instead of 45w?
here’s the definitive answer: YES, you can use a higher rated power adapter with your MBA (or whatever) with no ill effect. in the reverse case, if you use too low a wattage adapter (e.g. 45W one on a MB Pro), there won’t be enough current to charge the battery, although you can run it off AC power while plugged in.
Can I use a 90 watt charger on a 180 watt laptop?
Generally the answer is yes, but it won’t supply enough power to charge the battery while you’re using your laptop. This will probably invalidate your warranty and could cause damage to your laptop, but the changes for that are small.
What is the difference between 45w and 65w charger?
Wattage is a measurement of how much power a supply CAN generate, or how much your device DOES consume. The wattage of your power supply is a rating of the maximum power that can be drawn down from it; if your computer requires 45w but your supply can provide 65w, you will be fine.
Can I use 60w charger instead of 65w?
Yes you can use a lower wattage charger for your laptop but incases that your laptop will be in High Performance mode of will be needing more power for your graphics card if you’ll do games with it chances are it may shut down on it’s on or will lag.
How many watts do you need to charge a laptop?

Can I use a 130w adapter on a 65w laptop?
Since your laptop came with a 65-watt power supply, it’s safe to assume your laptop needs no more than 65 watts of power. The 130-watt power supply will work just fine and will have plenty to spare. The 65-watt power supply will work, because that’s what came with the laptop.
Can I use a 130w adapter on a 90w laptop?
The laptop will only draw the current it needs so you will not fry anything. You can use an adapter with more amps and the same voltage and the same physical connection without any problems. It will even charge the battery faster.
Does higher wattage charge faster?
Use a wall charger In general, the higher the device’s wattage, the faster it can deliver a charge to your iPhone. The wall charger that comes with your iPhone is relatively anemic, rated at 5 watts.
