Hello,
I would like to know if the charger of my Compaq Laptop with 18,5V output can be used to charge my Mini HP NetBook which has a device with 19,5 V output.

No. The AC adapter must have the same output voltage as specified by the device.

Maybe too quick. What are the exact model numbers of your two computers?

Here's HP's adapter compatibility chart.

One model is the Compaq Presario 700 and the other is the HP Mini 1000.
Studying the provided chart of HP adapters I realize that there is a difference in Power Consumption : 40 Watts for the HP Mini vs. 65 Watts for the bigger Lap Top. Since I would like to charge both computers with only one adaptor - using the 65 Watt adapter for either one would be OK?

You can't use the 65W adapter with the HP Mini 1000.

OK. For the mean time we must charge each computer with its proper adapter. May be in the future the manufacturer could unify these devices (like the adapters for cell phones).
