So my Y510P's power adapter cord has finally deteriorated to the point that I need to replace it. Right now I'm looking at 170W replacements (since my laptop is SLI), and I noticed that though PWR+ on Amazon lists this model as compatible with their adapter, the max output is listed as 19V. But my original is 20V.
Is this an acceptable compromise? Do I need to pony up more for an official replacement? $50+ is already pushing it for me at the moment, and I need a working cord soon. Is replacing a 170W 20V with a 170W 19V going to be a problem?
for reference, the listings:

You can check the other part numbers for the adapter here: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_y410p_y510p_hmm.pdf?Source=social_eservices.... page 102.

Similar issue, looking for a replacement of mine without SLI - looking for the 120 W one.
I'd strongly reccoment posting to Tom's Hardware or Reddit Tech Support/Lenovo there as there's not much help on official channels by Lenovo. To check compatibility etc, you'd get a better response elsewhere.
