Will I damage the laptop if I always use a travel adapter to charge it?


This scenario could happen if I bought a laptop in one country but later moved to live in another country with a different power standard. Will it be safe to just add a travel adapter on the plug and charge the laptop? I worry about potential long-term damage to the battery. Or would it be better to try to contact the local support for this brand of laptop and buy a charger with natively local plug?

Most laptop power bricks work with a wide range of voltages (most say Input:100~240v), read the label on your laptop power brick, look at "input" section The travel adapter is nothing more than a gender changer for the wall socket. If your power brick has this input variable voltage then you are safe to use the adapter.

Example Label, look at bottom left corner of image for Input voltage
