Chromebooks are light, portable, and efficient and there is no need to replace them with laptops or computers if you do not have high-end computing tasks to do.
Someone asked if he had lost his original Chromebook charger during travelling so ‘Can I charge my Acer Chromebook with another Acer Chromebook Charger?

Most of the models from these chargers can be used to charge different Chromebooks at a time.
Can I charge my Acer laptop with a USB C?

Can I charge my laptop without a charger?
Yes, you can use a universal adapter to fill up your Chromebook battery. It can easily fit into a charging port and you can use a car battery or others that are supported with a 12V DC PowerPoint.
Now most modern Chromebooks come with a different voltage of battery like 8V and above but car batteries range from 12V-24V.
It is needed to convert into the required voltage and for this purpose, you can use an inverter that can convert higher voltage into low voltage like 8V or above and generate an AC from DC at the output point.
Follow these points to charge your laptop without a charger.
First, insert the inverter into the car’s socket carefully and then plug the Chromebook AC adapter into the inverter and finally connect the AC adapter to Chromebook. In this way, you can charge up your battery.
You can also use an external laptop battery. For this purpose, you need to remove your laptop or Chromebook battery and connect it with a charger and finely connect it with an electrical outlet.
Some batteries give an indicator that the battery is not fully charged by having a small light when the battery is fully charged it becomes steady.
Can an HDMI cable charge a laptop?
Some people ask me a simple question that is it possible to charge a laptop or Chromebook by using an HDMI cable?
The answer to this question is simply yes, using the HDMI port is an efficient and cost-effective way to charge a laptop or Chromebook.
There are some easy ways to charge your Chromebook by using the HDMI port
First, you need to confirm that your Chromebook had an HDMI port and an adapter for converting it. If your device lacks these features then the HDMI port is a vestigial part because charging the battery ensures the required necessities.
In the second step, connect the HDMI cable with the source which is supported with HDMI like an LCD or LED TV, and take an HDMI connecter to connect the other end of the HDMI cable with it.
In this way, you need a pair of things to charge the Chromebook. By using this method you can also charge a laptop as well as a notebook.
In the third step, notice that HDMI works successfully without any hindrance and your device comes on. If your device does not start then there is a problem with something and disconnect it from the source.
In my opinion, charge your Chromebook with an HDMI port only when you are in a problem somewhere. In a normal situation make sure to charge your Chromebook with an adapter that is supported by the Chromebook.
