    It's not a "big" no-no, but it's probably not dangerous, either. Just make
    sure the power supply doesn't overheat...give it room to let off any heat.
    Best not to run the machine at full power (bright display and heavy CPU
    load) while working with a dead battery too. Ummm, if the supply doesn't
    ever get hot then this is probably a big non-issue anyway.

    Of more importance is the voltage. What's the output voltage of the two
    supplies? They should be the same, or very close.

    If it's been used this way for a while, no problems, then it'll probably
    work for the life of the laptop.
