My AC adapter i normally use for my laptop short circuited. (AC adapter made clicking noises then stopped working)
When I looked around in my garage to see if I had a replacement adapter, I found an AC adapter that had a head that fit into my laptop, but had less output voltage then the one that had been using.
Is it safe to use this AC adapter I found until the new one I ordered arrives?
The AC adapter that normally use has specs of:
Input: 100-240V - 1.5A 50/60HZ
The AC adapter I found has specs of:
Input: 100-240V -1.2A-0.5A 50/60HZ
When I use this AC adapter I found, the battery level is stuck at 32% with 10hr 01min remaining.
I read somewhere that if the laptop tries to draw more power from an adapter then it is normally capable of, the adapter will short circuit, would it be safer if I used "power saver mode" for power options instead of "high performace" that I normally use?
Should I take out the battery???
