Is my charger under size?
Separate question from yesterday: A friend gave me this laptop, the Acer E15 E5-573-35AQ, and when the computer wasn't plugged in for months, it beeped when I plugged it in.
Today I used Nirsoft's BatteryInfoView and saw that when it was under 80% charged, its state changes back and forth and sometimes it's listed as Discharging, or Discharging, AC Power or Charging, AC Power. Discharging, AC Power!!!!
Then I noticed that the charger is little and only 1.58 amps for a 15" screen. The ones they are selling for this model are all 3.42 amps. A big difference. Are the new ones overkill? (And it has a 2-prong plug when the ones for sale now have 3 prongs.) Even though it eventually gets above 80% and to 100%, is there some reason I should still buy a bigger charger? I'm really not in a hurry, and it did get up to 100% from 80% after 90 minutesr or so
If 1.58 amps is enough, somewhere I have a car charger for a little winXP Acer Aspire One that would mean, if I can find it, I don't have to buy a charger for this one. That would also save money.
