How Do I Charge My Laptop Using An Aux Cable?

Charging your dead laptop without an Aux cable in your laptop bag can be tricky but not impossible.

You can use a portable power bank, a universal adapter, an electric outlet inside your car,  USB-type cables, or even your phone! It may depend on the laptop brand or other brands of laptops, but it is possible! 

How Do I Charge My Laptop Using An Aux Cable?

Without the original charger that the manufacturer recommends, charging a laptop can be unsafe. Plus, some of the alternative chargers should be the preferred laptop chargers or a standard laptop charger recommended by the brand. However, one of the techniques on this list ought to be reasonably secure.

However, they ought to only be employed momentarily. When charging your laptop during regular hours, you should always use the authorized or official charger.

However, having a laptop that can last for a very long time, say 10 to 14 hours on a single charge, is still the best option. In that case, look for a laptop designed for outdoor use because they typically have larger batteries.

Best Ways To Charge A Laptop Battery Without A Charger

There are several ways to charge a laptop battery without a charger. However, if you don’t know how to do that, you might end up damaging your computer. After all, your laptop comes with its laptop port and laptop power cord for a reason. So let’s get you through some methods that won’t harm your laptop.

Best Ways To Charge A Laptop Battery Without A Charger

There are several ways to recharge a laptop battery without a charging cable. But if you don’t know any of those methods, you may end up damaging your laptop. After all, your computer comes with its laptop port, and laptop power cord for reasons. So let’s get through some methods that won’t damage your laptop.

First off, there are two types of batteries used in laptops: Lithium Ion Batteries and Nickel Cadmium Batteries. Both types require different charging techniques. Let’s start with lithium-ion

A lithium-ion battery requires a special charger called a LiPo charger. These chargers come in two varieties: Constant Current and Constant Voltage. You’ll find both types at most electronic stores

Constant current chargers provide a constant flow of electricity to the battery. This means that the voltage doesn’t fluctuate during the charging process. As a result, the battery does not heat up.

Constant voltage chargers provide a steady flow of electricity to the batter. This means that the battery heats up during the charging process.

Both types of chargers work well for lithium-ion batteries. However, constant current chargers tend to last longer than constant voltage chargers.

Nickel-cadmium batteries are less expensive than lithium-ion batteries. And because they are cheaper, they are commonly found in portable devices such as cell phones and MP3 players.

However, nickel-cadmium batteries are prone to overheating. Overheated batteries can explode, which is dangerous for anyone nearby.

So, if you plan to charge a laptop using a NiCad battery, make sure that you keep the laptop away from anything flammable. Also, never leave the laptop unattended while charging.

You should only charge a laptop battery once every six months. Otherwise, the battery will lose its ability to hold a charge.

If you are unsure whether your laptop needs a new battery, try turning it on. If it works fine, then you probably don’t need a new battery.

But if the laptop turns itself off after being turned on, then you definitely need a new battery.

1. Portable Power Bank

A portable power bank is a great option for those who travel frequently. You can charge your laptop with it, and it doesn’t require any special cables.

Portable Power Bank

You can find a portable power bank at most major retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, and Target. These power banks usually come with USB-type ports that can accommodate common USB connectors, so you can plug in multiple devices at once. Plus, they come in portable and handy sizes so you can pack one up and be ready whenever your laptop or other devices run out of power.

Make sure that you only connect your laptop to the power bank when it’s fully charged. Otherwise, you risk damaging your computer. Also, don’t leave any other device connected to the power bank while it’s being used for your laptop.

You can also conserve battery life if you only use wired keyboards and wired mouse with your laptop. Wireless peripherals will consume much more energy and will deplete your power source faster.

2. Universal Power Adapter

A universal power adapter is a device that allows you to charge multiple devices at once. You can plug it into any standard outlet and it will provide enough power to charge your phone, tablet, camera, etc. Universal power adapters come in various shapes and sizes, so you’ll want to look for one that fits your laptop.

You don’t necessarily need to buy a universal power adapter, though. Many laptops include built-in chargers, which means you won’t need to purchase anything else. However, if you do decide to buy a universal power adaptor, there are several options available. Some universal power adapters even include tips of varying sizes, allowing you to select the right one for your laptop.

Make sure you choose the correct tip for the laptop you plan to charge. Otherwise, your laptop may not charge properly, or worse, it could be damaged.

Connect the adapter to your laptop by plugging it into a power source and you are ready to work even when you’re in vacation on a Caribbean island!

3. Car

This is a great tip if you happen to have a car that already has a Type C port. You can use it to charge your laptop from your car.

There are two methods available:

1. Plug the inverter into the cigarette lighter.

2. Use an AC adapter that connects the Type A port on the laptop to the Type C port on the car.

Connecting the laptop to your vehicle’s battery is not recommended. The resulting explosion is certain to ruin your day.

4. USB-C Cable

It is possible to charge your laptop via USB. You can use a USB-A to USB-C cable to charge your laptop. However, there are two problems with doing this. First, most laptops do not come with a USB-C port. Second, you cannot use a standard USB-A to USB cable to charge your laptop because it does not have a USB-C connector.

USB-C Cable

Fortunately, you can buy a USB-C to USB-C cord that plugs directly into your laptop. These USB-C cords are usually sold separately from your laptop charger.

However, if you don’t have a built-in USB-C port on your laptop, you’ll need to purchase a USB-C charger for a micro-USB converter or a plug adapter (box-shaped plug). This device converts the USB-C signal to a USB-A signal.

This means that you can now use a regular USB-A to USB converter to charge your laptop.

To charge your laptop using a USB, simply plug one end of the cable into an outlet, then connect the other end of the cable to your laptop.

That’s it! A piece of cake. As long as your laptop has a USB-C port, that might be a problem, what if you don’t have access to any?

Unfortunately, purchasing a new USB cable may not be easier than buying a new laptop charger.

5. Charge Your Laptop With Your Phone

You’ll need a double-ended USB Type-C cable and a fully charged smartphone to charge a laptop using your smartphone. Simply connect a USB-C connection to your phone and laptop’s charging port, choose the USB option that says “supplying power,” and the battery of your phone should start to transmit power.

In conclusion, if you have a laptop that doesn’t charge via USB port, you may need to use an auxiliary cable. This will allow you to plug your computer into any power source, including wall outlets. However, before using an auxiliary cable, check your manual first. Some laptops require specific cables, and others work fine with standard cords.
