I forgot my charger at work. However, I do have the HP P/N 462602-001 (auto/plane/boat) charger from my previous laptop. May I use that temporarily?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes, that should be a 90 watt adapter and should be more than enopugh to power the notebook, as long as the plug that connects to the notebook is the same you are good to go.

Thanks. That seems to be working.
I knew I was being paranoid, but I wasn't convinced that just because the plugs fit, that the charger wouldn't fry the laptop.
So, in general, if the plugs fit, what would keep me from using a particular charger with a particular laptop? Insufficient power? Too much power? Available current too high/too low?

Laptop only uses what it needs, so the only problem would be is using one that is too small for the laptop.
I would not say if the plug fits use it, only if you know it is for a HP laptop would that apply.
