The idiots guide to getting the correct replacement laptop charger

January 13th, 2012

Whilst we are not suggesting readers of this blog are idiots, here in this blog we try to give people a quick rundown of the steps to follow to make sure you get the correct laptop adapter. It doesn’t matter whether you are after a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop charger, a Medion Akoya laptop adapter or a Samsung power supply the same rules apply.

Step 1: Check firstly that it is indeed your laptop charger that needs replacing. Many people go about sourcing a new laptop adapter when in fact there is a different problem with their laptop. Check whether the laptop charger is giving an output on a voltmeter. Another tell-tale sign of a faulty laptop power supply is a green LED power light that no longer comes on.

Step 2: Find out the exact make and model number of your laptop. This is best done by turning your laptop or notebook upside down and recording the precise manufacturing number. Once you have this then you can search on this model number within the Laptop Power UK search box.

Step 3: Check the specification of the laptop charger presented against the one suggested by the Laptop Power UK website. The voltage, amps and pin size of your previous laptop power cable should match those on the product our website suggests. If you don’t have your old laptop adapter then don’t worry. Our databases ensure you will be sent the correct product first time around.

Replacement Laptop Chargers – All makes, all models and all specifications

Laptop Chargers – also sometimes called laptop adapters are the vital piece of your laptop that keeps it all working. The internal batteries in your laptop are only designed to hold a few hours charge. If your laptop is a couple of years old, the life may only be an hour if you are lucky. Within Laptop Power UK we stock all of the many different varieties of laptop chargers for all makes and models of laptop.

We have all power rating available from 30W to 120W and everything in between. It is important to get the right amount of power to your laptop as if you plug an underpowered power supply into your laptop, the adapter will break very quickly as it bears extra strain.

Some brands such as Sony generally use only one specific type of adapter, some such as Acer may use two or more different types. Our database tells you exactly which one to avoid any confusion and your laptop can be easily found with our search function. The power rating and also size and an image of the tip will be displayed to match up to your old laptop adapter.

There may be a couple of options in terms of the size of your tip also. With exactly the same power, the only difference in the different adapters may be the inner and outer diameter of the power supply. Common sizes include 5.5mm outer diameter and 2.5mm inner diameter or 4.8mm by 1.7mm. Small differences but enough to stop it fitting if you get the wrong one for your laptop.

With excellent knowledge and great customer support we can offer you the very best products with the minimum fuss. All products come with a 12 month warranty and a free UK power cord. You can order on line or call our Laptop Power UK saless team for same day dispatch.

Laptop Power Supply Replacement – Common Faults and fixes

November 20th, 2010

A very common fault that laptop owners find is that eventually their laptop charger or notebook charger fails to charge their laptop.  We understand how frustrating it can be when your Philips Freevents X59 adapter or Advent 7201 Charger just seems to have stopped working.

The tendency will be to purchase a replacement Phillips Freevents Charger or an Advent laptop charger; however this may not always be the problem.  A simple voltmeter test can determine whether your laptop power supply is producing an output. If it seems to be OK you may have an issue with your DC Socket. This will prevent the charge from going from your Laptop AC Adapter to the charging circuit.  If this is the case you will need a replacement DC socket repair. The good news is that once fixed your laptop AC adapter will then successfully charge your laptop.
