Xbox One Power Supply EU vs US

I'm in Europe with a US imported Xbox One console, and I just got an EU power brick from China. I have a question regarding their compatibility.

On my US brick the output is listed as 12V - 17.9A.

On the EU brick the output is listed as 12V - 10.83A.

The A is different, will this work? From what I remember of science classes, the ampere shouldn't matter, but I can't remember why that was. :)

 

Question Info

What is the input voltage, that matters more. Is it 100-110V, 220-240V, and 100-240V? And is it an offical Microsoft PSU!? As if its not, I would be very careful using it.

Input voltage is fine, it's the 100-240V AC that an EU brick should be.

The PSU does not look official in any way - but it is identical to the Xbox One power supply in design. From what I can tell no official power supply is up for sale separately by MS, so while I'm cautious about using this, I have no other way of eliminating the bulky and ugly power transformer I've been using since importing this console via Amazon.com a month ago.

My question isn't about the basics of the power supply - it's about this specific part of the specs relating to ampere, and while I appreciate the effort, neither your reply nor the provided link helps there. The link does definitely not contain much more than basic info and doesn't even come close to having "all other details".

Well, 7A is quite a difference, whether it is enough to cause issues is another thing. Its up to you whether you risk to use a third party PSU, obviously you would invalidate any warranty due to its use.
  

"Important Microsoft does not license any non-Microsoft accessories that plug into the Xbox One console's power socket. The use of any accessory other than the standard Xbox One PSU may damage your console and void your console warranty."
  

Good luck.

The important part of the power supply is the voltage. Amperage should not hurt anything as your ONE will not pull anymore than it needs in terms of amperage. The more amperage usually means a more smoother flow of amps.  As Whagi stated using a non Microsoft one can have a damaging effect depending on the quality of everything inside.

Poor quality PSU lower amperage simply means cheaper PSU to maximize profits.
