View Full Version : G75vx Power Supply

Hi everyone,

I want to pick up a second power adapter to leave at my office and found this adapter that claims it's compatible with G75vx machines: http://www.amazon.ca/Asus-G750JW-G750JX-Adapter-Charger/dp/B00EA3NM3K/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_t.

However, the wattage is only 90w versus the 180w of the supply that came with the machine.

Would it work?

That power brick is only half the wattage your G75VX needs (will not work), you need a 180 Watt AC adapter to power your NB.
Check this link>>>>180 Watt AC Adapter (http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_list&c=3732)

Thanks GottiBoi55. I'm hoping to find a cheaper third-party adapter instead.

well it depends.

for Office use, and light use, it will do super fine and charge the battery at the same time.

just don't use it for intensive GPU + CPU :)

Office use, browsing, battery charging at the same time.

works fine for CPU 3DS Max Renderings or AutoCAD work.

180W for the intended use for G75VW/X series ;)
CPU + GPU stuff like gaming.

the GPU itself uses 75W at full load
GPU is rated for 45W with Turboboost to 50W something.
and calculate in RAM/Screen/Motherboard etc 60-70 watts ish
personally use those chargers. just know that the ASUS 120W adapters tend to die/fail...
