I was checking the power draw of my device since I was bored. I noticed the power output listed on my laptops battery is lower then the requirement for my laptop or the charger. 


The charger and laptop are both rated at 19V/3.42A and 65Wh. However the the battery is listed at 11.1V/5A and 56 Wh. Is this normal? I checked my phone and it's batter is larger then the listed requirement, for battery life/fast charging I'd assume, but the laptops appears to be under powered. Am I missing something?


Might be worth noting the thing gets ridiculous battery life, it says it's rated at 8 but I've seen it do 12 or more at idle. Can take pictures.

99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
