I have zero knowledge when it comes to figuring out appliances power usage.

My laptop's power adapter comes with a 16amp plug which kills portability, even inside my own house. The adapter itself has an output rating of 12.32amp and input rating of 5amp. My uncle explained that it actually doesn't draw 12 amps but somewhere around 1-5 depending on the voltage and that I can change the cable with a lower amp rating.

Will it be safe if i use my charger with a smaller 10amp plug cable?
