120w adapter on dv6-7014NR?

HP Recommended

The HPShopping site lists the 120w ve025aa#aba as an acceptable charger for the dv6-7014NR.  But when you look at the page for that adapter the dv6 series is not listed.  The sales people told me that the 120w is NOT acceptable on the dv6-7014 but I am looking for someone on the tehnical side to confirm that.  That laptop has a 1080 display, bluray, discrete videocard, and core i7 among other things and I am thinking that configuration may in fact be accepable for the 120w adapter.  Can someone please confirm one way or the other?

Thanks.

Just to add, the Adapter size will vary depending upon the model, a dv6-7000 series notebook will not necessarily have the same Adapter as that of dv6- 6000 series. Be assured, your dv6-7014nr will work with a 120 W Adapter.

A 120W is a compatible Adapter to work with “HP Pavilion dv6-7014nr Entertainment Notebook PC”, the notebook specifications itself lists that the notebook comes with a 120 W adapter. You should have no issues using it.

Check the link below for the notebook specifications :

You are quite right.  The power brick looked more like a 90w size to me so I never even looked.  It is in fact a 120w unit.  So then the next question is, if I buy a travel brick will the 90w slim line (BT798AA) give enough juice to run and charge it when it is running hard or should i just get another 120 to be safe?

You may experience issues using a 90W Adapter, when you try to use it, you may receive a error “Smart Adapter Error” stating that the notebook needs to work with a higher Watt AC Adapter. To be on a safer side, get a 120 W Adapter, you can do so online from the below link:

Just enter the below Part Number and get the adapter ordered, if you need another one.

Part Number: 645156-001, Price $ 51.40, Specifications: AC adapter (120-watt) - RC/V, slim form factor - With power factor correction (PFC) technology. Requires separate 3-wire AC power cord.

I am seeing a lot of 120w ve025aa chargers on the web that are 18.5v/6.5a and the charger that came with my PC is 19.5v/6.15a.  I saw a comment from someone that the lower voltage can cause the voltage regulator on the laptop to work harder.  Is this accurate?  Should I worry about the voltage/amperage difference?

The best I can recommend is that you get the Adapter, similar to the one that came with the notebook(19.5v/6.15a), the AC Adapter which exactly works with your notebook is part: 645156-001, so you can search over the Internet to get one which comes at a lesser price than what HP is offering.

Oddly, using the hp site you mentioned above hp seems to be the cheapest at $52 before shipping and tax...at least for that part number. It is odd that the 120w converter listed under the accessories for the DV6-7014 shows as model number ve025aa and all examples I find of that show 18.5v. Go figure. Thanks for all the feedback.
