    Hello,

    I have 2 "universal" AC chargers (can choose between 3V and 12V)

    I guess it's not a good idea to plug a 19V charger on a 12V device but is the opposite also true ? Is it OK to plug my 12V universal charger instead of the AAO's original 19V charger ??
    (a "yes" would suit me fine as I woudn't need to take the AAO's charger with me all the time ;) )

    Thanking you in advance for your advice

    19V > 12V - it's not going to work... Electronics is flexible but like that. AA1 requires 19V from charger/PSU for operate. 12V is not enough then... Difference like 1V or 2V should be acceptable but not 7V... I'm not asking how much power this PSU can give...
