Charging p71 with Lenovo Thinkpad 90W AC Adapter



I just purchased P71 and I have a question regarding charging the battery.  Would charging the p71 workstation with Lenovo Thinkpad 90W AC Adapter can harm the battery or the device?


Thank you.

I don't have one to test, but my understanding is that it will charge the battery while the computer is turned off.

My P71 will give an Incorrect Charger Error, when I plug it into my 90W Ultrabook charger. 
It claims, the unit may be able to charge if the system is shut down. That being said, the 230W charger is so fast to power this unit to full, its advantageous to utilize it wattage.
