Can I under power my ZBook laptop to use on airplane
Product: HP ZBook Studio G4
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My HP ZBook Studio G4 power supply draws 150 watts when it is plugged in. This is kind of a workhorse, so I understand why.
I work the system hard, and so my battery life is limited. (Lots of graphics operations and lots of threads, virtual machines, etc.).
The seat outlets on some airplanes are able to deliver the full 150 watts I need. However, on many planes, the seat outlets have circuitry (breakers? fuses?) that disable them when that much power is drawn.
My question: would it be possible/advisable to connect a lower power power supply that might not keep the battery at full charge but could serve as a "power assist" in this setting? If so, how to select that power supply to use?
