• Can you charge a Macbook Air without a charger?

    Best answer: It is not designed for it, or recommended, but a slow trickle charge is possible if you have a very long time. Let's say it accepts a 1 amp 5 volt. That is 5 watts of power input.

    Best answer: It is not designed for it, or recommended, but a slow trickle charge is possible if you have a very long time. Let's say it accepts a 1 amp 5 volt. That is 5 watts of power input. The proper Magsafe charger is 45 watts. Although part of the cycle of a standard charge is low wattage as the battery is over about 90% charged, the initial charge from low battery is normally at a much higher amperage which is why it is 45 watts maximum.
    One hour from the charger is an all-night charge from USB and it's normally designed to output; not input.
    If you try it for a half hour, check if charge increased a few percent and then you know its working.
    USB output can be as low as 1/2 amp and as high as 2 amp depending upon the usb.
    That's up to 2 amp at 5 volts or 10 watts. SLOW just doesn't describe it well enough.

  • I lost my school tablet/laptop and I'm freaking out!!?

    Best answer: Face the music and tell them right away. They probably have it setup where they can see it's last known GPS location. If your account was on it you may be able to do the same thing. I f that is the case and it is Android you can Search for "Find My Device - Google" to see it's last location.

  • Windows 10 won't charge?

    I haven't used my Windows 10 laptop in a month, and when I opened it, it wouldn't charge! It once did a week ago, but it won't anymore. The only way I could use it when it's plugged in, and it doesn't even charge.

    Best answer: you can change a disk in any pc and re-install windows 10 and you dont need a new licence. your current licence is held at microssoft.com and includes a licence number and the Digital ID of your mainboard. so you can safely CLONE the drive or just re-install W10 on the new drive. But you must also realise that a 3rd item is stored at microsoft, and that is the OS install history. so if your pc originally came with w7 or w8 and you applied the w10 UPGRADE OS, then you must do the same to any new drive. you do that one of two ways. 1) you simply CLONE the drive(duplicate it from the original) 2) insert a blank drive, install original OS, then install and apply UPGRADE OS. if your current OS is the original, then just CLONE the drive which will then include boot code and any RECOVERY partition, and you can then even RESET the pc using the new disk so that its a clean install. *** so you dont loose the licence just because you want to change the disk ****
