I am using DELL laptop eventually, my Laptos's Charger got damaged, when I purchased new one unfortunately the Voltage of Charger got changed, instead of 19volts, I have now charger of 16.5 volts, but its still working, should I keep using it, would it harm my battery health? Please respond as soon as possible.
Dell’s Charger Voltage Fluctuation issue help
There is actually no problem with the charger you replaced though it has a much smaller voltage rating. This should be fine as long as the voltage rating is not higher than your original charger. The only difference is that, when you use the charger with the low voltage rating, the normal charge time of your laptop might increase.
Because at low voltage, the battery is charged more slowly than the original. But it should be fine and the battery will not be damaged. If you notice that the charging time is extended than usual, simply use the laptop as you charge it. This way, you can already begin with your work and at the same time charging the battery.
If you want to restore the charging time to normal, maybe you should purchase another charger with the correct voltage rating similar to the original charger.
