    I'm air traveling a good bit and the 150w charger is too strong for planes...
    Is there another option that requires lesser wattage?

    HP zBook G3 15
    2016 model

    Thanks!

    The charger only draws the power it needs to power the laptop. (well, a bit more, since it's not 100% efficient). Set your laptop to power saving mode, make sure the battery is charged (or remove it), and avoid heavy tasks (like gaming or watching 4k movies) and it should not nearly draw 150W of power.
