    Hi!
    I just found out that my charger is broken and I am abroad. I cannot find a proper power supply for my SP4, but ony the one for the Surface Go.
    Do you think it is safe to use it? I quickly tried in the shop and it seems to charge the battery, but I fear that it can cause issues in the long run.
    Thank you!!

    It should have no issues charging it, but under load I don't think the 24W Go Charger will keep up for the i5's 65W need...
