19.5V vs. 20V charger.

HP Specter X360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Specter x360 (13") came with a 20V charger.

I just got a new HP docking station, however it's rated for 19.5V .

It looks liKe the docking station is chargging (Via Thunderbolt 3).

Do I need to worry about the voltage differance?

 

Thanks

Hi! @mbar1, Welcome to HP forums.

 

I understand that you got a 19.5V docking station and you need to know whether it would be a problem if you charge your laptop.

 

Don't worry I will try to help you out.

 

Is the docking station compatible with your PC?

 

The following will cause damage to your device:
Reverse polarity
Higher voltage adapter than device rating
The following will cause harm to your power cord or adapter:
Reverse polarity
Lower current adapter than device rating
The following might not cause damage, but the device will not work properly:
Lower voltage adapter than device rating
Higher current adapter than device rating

 

So, please buy a compatible docking station for your PC.

 

 

 

Hope this answers your query!

Have a great day ahead! :)

@mbar1, Thanks for your quick response and time.

 

Unfortunately, machine does NOT have docking port therefore you can use USB Port Replicator

 

Please refer this link to purchase port replicator.

 

 

Have a great day ahead! :)
