(E6220) Is this laptop work with the Dell 130W adapter?
I picked up a no webcam Latitude E6220 (gov’t surplus) for a really agreeable price, but I do not get a hard drive, caddy or interposer since it was government surplus. As such, I also do not get a power adapter, but it was tested to boot so I know the laptop is ready to go once I get a drive and caddy/interposer. It came with the backlit keyboard from the factory so no need to upgrade that :-)
The catch is I do not own a Dell 90W adapter, which is the officially supported maximum adapter Dell sells for it. The adapter I have available that’s the least wasteful is a 130W 0VJCH5 (reliable revision) from my old E6540 with GPU issues - I have a 180W 0WW4XY I got as a depot error (and was allowed to keep it, which I have in my eMails in writing) but I am saving that one for a more appropriate system. It isn't very portable and nearly dwarfs the 6220 itself since the adapter is 7” long and the laptop is 12”… Not a good travel adapter.
Can I use the 130W adapter temporarily until I get a 90W adapter or will it fry the system board? You can get away with 65->90 (+25W) comfortably, but 90->130 (+40) is quite a jump.
Это хороший вопрос?
