Dell Hybrid Adapter (PH45W17-BA) and an older Dell XPS 9350 (Skylake)

Jump to solution

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if the above mentioned Dell Hybrid Adapter could be used with my old Dell XPS 9350. The Dell website does not mention my laptop as being compatible, but the connectors seem to match and the output voltage and amp on my own adapter and the hybrid adapter seem to be the same.

Just making sure,

 

Thanks!

If I personally wanted that type of product and had that system, I would buy it on the assumption that it would work.  The XPS 13 models for a while now have required a 45W power supply, which that adapter can provide.  It's not uncommon for an accessory's compatibility list to not include systems introduced before a certain period and/or not get updated to include systems introduced after the accessory, even if the accessory would be compatible with those older and newer systems.
