Latitude D620 - Power Adapter Requirements

  • Hi,

    I have a Latitude D620 that, according to the bottom of the laptop requires 19.5V and 4.62A.  The power adapter that came with it is a PA-12 19.5V and 3.34A, now when you turn on the laptop it says it can't detect the power adapter.  I thought I had ordered a power adapter that had the same power requirements listed on the laptop itself but the one I just got in the mail is the same PA-12 19.5V and 3.34A.  I plugged it in anyways and the laptop boots up just fine now with no errors.

    Is this the correct power adapter or should I get one that matches what is listed on the laptop exactly?  I thought if I ran a power adapter with less amps, I could burn out the power adapter.... thanks."

     

  • Hello j I have a D620 Power supply for the laptop is: PA-12 model DA65NS0-00 Dell p/n CF745 output= 19.5v 3.34A, internal positive Never had problems with it. Please note that the power supply for the docking station has different spec, it is NOT the same. Have fun Avi
  • So I shouldn't worry about the amps being different?  There's no concern about burning out the power adapter?
