Laptop power adapter replacement factory 2023? If you’re like me, you can’t be without your laptop. From daily work, to taking notes in meetings and even entertainment at home, your laptop goes everywhere with you. All of that productivity and entertainment a laptop offers needs power to keep it going, and a broken or lost laptop charger or power cord will quickly leave you scrambling for a replacement. You may even want to pick up an extra charger so to save you carrying extra cables. So what do you choose? In this article we run through the three main types of laptop power supplies and how you can pick a safe, reliable and affordable replacement. See additional details on https://www.laptoprepair.com/product-adapter.html.
I said in the beginning that there were a few caveats. The Voltage needs to be the same or at least very close to that required by the laptop. We would generally not recommend using a charger or more or less than 1V of what is required by the laptop. HP have 18.5V, 19V and 19.5V laptops and we’ve never had a problem with supplying either of these charger for any HP laptop. Fujitsu laptops generally require 20V, but we’ve never had a problem with 19V chargers. You can not however use a 15V charger on a laptop that requires 19V or vice versa. The Polarity must match. Barrel connectors usually have the negative on the outer sheath and the positive inside the inner hole and to be honest we have never come across a laptop charger which is different.
Regardless, it’s essential to get the right polarity! A charger with the wrong polarity can cause your laptop to overheat. If your laptop is equipped with a polarity fuse, the fuse will blow. You’ll need to replace the fuse, and you’ll still need a new charger. If your laptop doesn’t have a polarity fuse, you’ll potentially cook your entire machine. Compared to everything else we’ve discussed, plug measurements are relatively straightforward. There are two measurements: one for the inside diameter, and the other for the outside. Both are measured in millimeters. This is generally noted as “5mm OD x 2mm ID” or something similar. If need be, you can also check by simply plugging it in. Provided the polarity and power supply are correct, connecting the wrong size adapter won’t do any harm. It just won’t work.
There are no guarantees on quality. Many of the universal chargers we looked at on eBay and Amazon came with no mention at all on warranty either. By nature of a universal charger, many of its parts are removable (such as the pin section). These can be wobbly or poorly fitting and will degrade over time. Finally, many universal laptop chargers have a switch to manually select the required voltage. Plugging the charger into your laptop with the wrong voltage selected can cause irreversible damage to your laptop. In summary for universal laptop power adaptors, we can’t recommend them as there are too many factors that can risk causing damage to your laptop.
