Buying new charger (Old 6.32A) and (new 6.3A)

  Scorpion123 10:51 16 Apr 2019

Hello. I need to buy a new charger for laptop. The old one was 19V 6.32A. The new one that I want to buy is 19V 6.3A. Both have the same polarity. My Question: is it ok to buy the new charger with 0.2A less than the old one? I read that the (A) should be same or higher so I am not sure. Thanks

I can't see that being an issue as it is well within the tolerance of the charging circuits.

0.02 Amps will be neither here nor there. It might take an almost immeasurable amount longer, to charge

It will be fine as the voltage, current, and polarity are correct the only other thing you need to check is the size of the jack plug pins
