Use a 230W charger for the P1 Thinkpad

2018-11-04, 23:44 PM

Hi, I’m wondering if it’s ok to use a 230 W charger for my P1 Thinkpad. since I’m having a P70 as well I don’t want to drag around 2 chargers. So I thought I could use the 230W charger for both the P70 and the P1.

Would that be a problem somehow - like harming the battery of the P1 or would any electronics be damaged or anything else?

‘Just to mention it, the P1 came with a 135W charger.

 

merci in advance

As long as they use the same connector and provide the same DC voltage that should be fine.  The P1 will only draw what it needs.
