I don't have the 20v charger for my IBM T60 LAPTOP, so i want to run it using a 19v HP charger, the plugs are different but i can get a converter, would that 1 volt less be a problem, (the current is not a problem there is more amperage in the hp charger).

I guess you'll have no problems provided you connect the polarities in forward bias. Cheers
