Laptop to 220v

HP Recommended
HP Laptop 14-dq1xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am studying in college in a foreign country and I bought this laptop in the US. How do I know if it is compatible with 220v?

I can not see anything on the battery pack all I know it says is its 45w and HP part number L25296-002.

We can bring our notebooks/laptops around the world now and they should work on normal household power around the world. All we need it the right plug (or a right cord from wall to charger).

 

The battery pack won't tell you the household voltage, only the charger or power supply/adapter unit (PSU) does. You can turn the charger up-side-down to read its label (very hard to read) which should say many information including

 

  • Input 110V-240V or similar,
  • Output 45W   (or some voltage and ampere)

In short. You can use your machine in the US, you only need a cord which you can buy from a good electrical or computer shop.  You can also use a tourist adapter which you can buy from may international airports.

 

Regards.
