    I am looking for a smaller (third party) charger for the GS73VR

    I bought the laptop for its large 4k screen and low weight. I don't game so something that provides a lower wattage should be fine.

    Any thoughts?

    Anything with the same adapter tip should at least charge it when it's off. As for being suitable for extended operation, not sure what wattage would be best.

    I use the Razer adapter for travelling......it cost me bout 100....and is way way lighter and smaller...i use it with the Gs63VR so i dont know if it will work for the GS73 but its worth a shot.......its 165W but ive had absolutely no issues running it for extended gaming sessions on mine.

    i would highly recommend when looking for a non OEM charger to make sure the outputs match the OEM charger. Charging the battery with an underpowered adapter can cause various issues with the battery and likely shorten its life cycle.

    You need at least 120W to get by without problems. But if you just need a charger then 90W should be okay, please note that you shouldn't turn the PC on with it.

    Thanks! How much does it weight? They have conveniently omitted that on their product webpage :p
