Can I use 19.5V 7.7A Power adapter with my NUC8i5BEK? (19.0V 4.74A original power adapter)

A man from the power-adapter store told me I can use, but I want to have professional advice with arguments. Thank you.

I am sure you are asking about the 7.7A​, but, in fact, the voltage is the real issue. In this case, requirement is within 10%, so it should be fine.

P​.S. Liking your own posts does nothing for you.

Hahaha) I love you)

 

Thank you for the answer.

I still waiting an answer from Intel support. They didn't reply yet.

I'm worry about this +0.5V because I'm going to use my NUC 24/7 365days.

In official spec here:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/126147/intel-nuc-kit-nuc8i5bek.html

they say: "DC Input Voltage Supported 12-19 VDC"

12-19 ok but what if 19.5V)

Any suggestions)?

Hello trackbolt

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel Community.

 

I agree with n.scott.pearson, on the Technical Product Specification Intel® NUC Products NUC8i3BE/NUC8i5BE/NUC8i7BE (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i3BE_NUC8i5BE_NUC8i7...) the section 2.2.4.6 Power supply connector page 38 you can find the following statement: "External Power Supply – the board can be powered through a 12-19 V DC connector on the back panel. The back panel DC connector is compatible with a 5.5 mm/OD (outer diameter) and 2.5 mm/ID (inner diameter) plug, where the inner contact is +12-19 (±10%) V DC and the shell is GND. The maximum current rating is 10 A.)".

 

We recommend using the 12-19 VDC that comes with the Intel® NUC but you should be fine with the 19.5V 7.7A.

 

Hope this helps.
