HP Chromebook purchased from Costco, model 14-db0051cl. Need to replace the 45W AC Power Adapter. USB-C. Can I use any 45W USB-C adapater?

Update:

*Adapter. The brick on my chewed up adapter has information as follows:

Input: 100-240V, 1.4A 50-60Hz

Output: 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 12V 3A, 15V 3A

45W MAX

Connector:usb-c

I can't find anywhere online that matches these exact specifications.

Thank you!

    You need one rated for a Chromebook 14.

    A USB-C device starts at 5V then communicates with the charger and requests the voltage it needs.

    Most laptop type USB-C ones have multiple voltage ratings so they can support various different computers.

    The current ratings of the power unit can be higher without any problem.

    There are plenty of "Chromebook 14" chargers on amazon on ebay, any of them should work fine.

    From what I can see that model has a two-cell battery so likely used the 9V selection for charging.

    If the plug fits the jack, any 45W will do. However, the amperage can be slightly higher.
