Can I use a battery that a little higher than standard voltage to power the PC?


I want to power my mini PC Intel NUC7I7BNH with DC power.

The input range of Intel NUC is 12V~19V. And I have a battery which output is about 19.5V.

Can I use this battery to power my mini PC?

Thank you very much

The input voltage must be within the range 12-19 (±10%) V DC. This translates to a range of 10.8-20.9 V DC. If your battery can provide a consistent voltage within this range, you should be good to go.


As a separate note, it has been suggested that, for battery applications, a buck converter be used to regulate the power. Here's a link to the recommended converter:


Hope this helps,
