Adapter HP 800 G3 Elitebook Laptop

HP Recommended
HP Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

for the HP elitebook the power adapter specifications that it can use are the following:


The computer can operate on DC power within the following specifications. Input Power


Operating voltage and current

19.5 V dc @ 2.31 A – 45 W

19.5 V dc @ 3.33 A – 65 W


I understand that leaving plugged in continually is not good for battery life, however is using the 65 watt vs the 45 watt any more detrimental?

It won't matter what adapter you use.


Things have changed regarding battery performance...they no longer tell you to run the notebook without the battery if it is constantly running on A/C power, or to disconnect the AC power, and run the notebook off the battery every two weeks until the low battery warning comes on, and then reattach the adapter.
