Need a charger for the HP EliteBook 840 Aero? Here are the best options

Buying a new laptop can be very expensive, and when you go for a high-end business laptop like the HP EliteBook 840 Aero, that’s even more true. This is a powerful and lightweight laptop that stands among HP’s best. Because of that, it’s only natural you want it to last as long as possible. So when your charger breaks or gets lost, do you really want to buy a whole new laptop? Maybe. But a better alternative might be to just get a new charger. In this article, we’ve rounded up a few charger options you can use with your HP EliteBook 840 Aero.

While the list will be focused on regular AC adapters, we also have a few more creative suggestions. We’ve included chargers you can use to keep your laptop powered on the go, and some docks that not only charge your laptop but also add more ports.


    Straight from HP

    If you need a replacement charger, it doesn't get much better than the official HP one. Like the included charger with the HP EliteBook 840 Aero, this one delivers 65W of power, more than enough to charge your laptop while you use it.

    Compact and cheap

    Official chargers are great, but the price can be a bit steep. If you can't fathom paying HP's asking price, this ZMI charger delivers the same 65W of power in a small package and it's one of the cheapest options out there. Plus, it has a compact design with foldable prongs.

    Extra small

    We've all seen those outlets that are way too close together and make it hard to plug in multiple chargers or power cords. The Anker PowerPort III Pod Lite is an absolutely tiny charger that still supports 65W of power delivery to keep your laptop going.


    You're not going to need a 100W charger for your HP EliteBook 840 Aero, but that doesn't mean it won't work. You can use it to charge your laptop, but you also have headroom in case you ever need to charge a more powerful laptop in the future.

    More devices, no problems

    Do you love carrying three our four chargers with you when you go on a trip? Probably not. This Hyphen-X charger has four ports, which should be enough to charge all your devices at once (though it'll slow down).

    Official charger and dock

    If you want more than just a charger, the official HP Thunderbolt 3 dock can not only provide power to your EliteBook 840 Aero, it adds a lot of ports so you can connect peripherals and external displays at your desk, up to two 4K displays.

    Affordable Thunderbolt

    Is HP's Thunderbolt a little too pricey for you? Amazon Basics offers an alternative that includes multiple USB ports, Ethernet, SD card readers, DisplayPort, and Thunderbolt daisy-chaining at a much lower price.

    Portable charger and USB hub

    So you have a charger to plug in at home, but what about one you can take on the road? This ZMI power bank has 20,000mAh of capacity and can deliver up to 65W of power. Plus, it can work as a USB hub while it's connected to your laptop.

    A charger to go

    Whether you forgot to charge your laptop before heading out or you have someone working next to you, this 45W car charger can help keep your laptop going -- even though it doesn't deliver as much power as the official charger for the HP EliteBook 840 Aero. It'll just charge more slowly.

If you just need a charger to replace a faulty or lost one, you can’t go wrong with the official one from HP. But if you want to keep using your HP EliteBook 840 Aero on the go, a power bank or a car charger can help you do just that. Back home, Thunderbolt docks can charge your laptop and expand your PC’s capabilities in other ways too.

If you haven’t yet, you can buy the HP EliteBook 840 Aero (G8) from the link below. You can customize this laptop with up to an Intel Core i7-1185G7 vPro, 64GB of RAM, and 2TB of storage, making it a very powerful business laptop. Plus, it’s a super light 2.5lbs and has options for cellular connectivity, so you can easily carry it wherever you need to work.

    The HP EliteBook 840 Aero is a lightweight clamshell laptop with lots of configuration options for business users. You can get it with up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, along with options for LTE or 5G and high-performance CPUs
