~ (as you know) means AC, and that no-overtaking double-line means DC :wink:

for DC, power (in watts) = volts times amps (W = VA),

so in this case the output power is 19.5*4.7 W :smile:

(but i don't know how much extra power is consumed by the charger itself :confused: … chargers can get rather warm!)
