    They (Eurocom) posted a video earlier this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0IeUbZb10U

    I watched and enjoyed it because I'm a PSU junky, but it's a power brick for one product: Eurocom's gaming laptop. Which still doesn't NEED 780W.

    Yeah its overkill unless the laptop had cards in sli and tons of other hardware i still think it wouldn't reach 60% of the capacity of this monster.

    My power brick for my Dell XPS M2010 weighs 11 pounds

    I think it worths modifying my test rig and software to support power bricks as well.

    I'm wondering, is there some EU directive or some legislation or some "low voltage" vs "high voltage" / different class of products thing/issue , that prevents companies from making power supplies that output more than 19-21v?

    That power supply says it outputs 19-21v ... why not make one that outputs 25-28v and less current?
    I'm only saying this much because I've seen there's generally a threshold at around 30-32v where a lot of ICs won't work anymore.

    There should be chips (like vrm controllers, battery management etc) that work with up to 30v or higher, there are polymer capacitors rated for 35v, should be fairly easy to design vrm on cpu to work with this higher voltage.

    And the battery charging circuitry shouldn't take that much space inside the laptop..

    If it's a "voltage dangerous for humans", that would probably be easily worked around by using a custom shrouded connector, or am i wrong?

    There is a safety threshold allowed for DC voltage in external wiring. I believe it's 24V.

    When do you start to consider a laptop to be a desktop?

    For me, it's a "portable" desktop if it is big like those big 17" rog gaming laptops, but my dell xps 13 is what I would consider a laptop.

    and yes i was able to decipher (after zooming in at 1080p) those purplish blue caps-- Aishi RS Low Impedance Long Life Capacitor ...the big one is most prob an Elite or teapo
