elitebook 1030 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My elite book 1030 G2 comes with a genuine 65W adapter (19.5V, 3.33A) as documented on website. As my house doesn't have any electric earthing/ Grounding system, I experience electrical leakage when my body part (such as up/down sides of hands not palm) touches the laptop body (Metal Body laptop).

But when I use a 45W genuine adapter (19.5V, 2.31A), electrical leakage never happens.

As Installation of electric grounding is not possible, Can I use 45W adapter as my daily driver for my elite book?

I know the ampere in both charger is different, recharging duration will be different.

Will different ampere affect my motherboard/Battery/Battery Charging IC/ adapter itself?

Machine needs one of the following adapters

  • 65-W HP Smart AC adapter (non-PFC, EM, 4.5-mm)
  • 65-W AC adapter (non-PFC, S-3P, 4.5-mm)
  • 65-W USB Type-C AC adapter (non-PFC, RC, 3-pin)  (this one may help)

45W is too weak, it does not have enough power to run your machine (It may be able to charge your machine when idle or off).
