Delivery Throughout The UK And Europe On All Laptop Chargers

April 24th, 2012

When your Laptop Adapter breaks it can take a long time for you to find the correct replacement. Once you have managed to locate the correct one it may take some companies a long time to dispatch your order and it may take a long time to reach you. All this adds up to one thing – a long down time for your laptop. If your laptop is used every day this can be extremely frustrating. Ideally you will want the replacement Dell Laptop Charger, Acer Aspire Laptop Adapter or Sony Vaio PCG-7112M Adapter to be with you in just a couple of days.

Shop at Laptop Power UK and we can ship within hours with next working day delivery for the shortest possible waiting time. If you live in Europe we can still get you your replacement in 48 hours using our special Fedex delivery. When you need a new laptop charger fast we won’t let you down.

Laptop Power UK – A company built on customer service and problem solving

February 17th, 2012

As a Company we pride ourselves on the quality of the parts and repair service that we offer. We don’t supply parts that can make us a quick buck, but ultimately let the end user down. We only retail and distribute products that we are confident in, we have tested, and we feel confident to put our brand behind.

We also take this approach into the repair and maintenance side of our business. We only undertake repair processes that we believe represent genuine value for the customer or business for who we are contracted to repair for.

Unlike many online companies, Laptop Power pays great emphasis in making our Customer Service team accessible to our customers. Given the technical nature of our industry, we deem it to be important that our customers can get detailed technical advice over the phone from product specialists. This is one of the main things that we believe differentiates us from many of our competitors. If you have a laptop charger requirement, or you need a new laptop screen, pick up the phone and give us a call – then you can make your own mind up!

Why are some laptop power supplies and power cables so cheap?

February 16th, 2012

Laptop chargers are like most things in life – you get what you pay for. Many sellers on Ebay sell the cheapest quality and this obviously comes at a price. Laptop adapters are relied upon by us each and every day, so whilst nobody wants to fork out a huge amount of money for a replacement, most people with the benefit of hindsight would not appreciate the inconvenience for the benefit of a few pounds saving.

Laptop Power UK only supplies laptop power cables from the leading manufacturers in the world. Whether you require HP Pavilion chargers, Toshiba Satellite power cables or indeed original Sony Vaio power chargers – you will find all you need and more here.

We also supply all our chargers with a free UK power cord, meaning that it will be able to charger your laptop battery straight out of the box. If you have any queries, get in touch and we will put your mind at rest.  We can supply it all – EU power cords, USA power cords, two pin cords and three pin cords.

Want to use your laptop charger whilst on holiday in Europe? No problem!

February 7th, 2012

A laptop charger is not something to be taken for granted. It sounds a bit dramatic but imagine the scene. You have that all-important business trip booked with a make-or-break deal on the table. Flights are booked as is the five star hotel. Taxi transfers have been arranged at either side. Research has even been done into meeting venues and the finest restaurants in the city.

What hasn’t been considered is the fact that the fancy high-spec corporate laptop requires a European power cord to be able to charge your laptop in the destination country. The laptop battery starts draining and that all important PowerPoint presentation can no longer be given. The whole trip starts to descend into a farce.

It doesn’t have to be like this for sure. Laptop Power UK can ideal for the corporate jet-setter. Not matter where you are going we will have the correct laptop power cord for you to ensure you don’t become unstuck and you can power your laptop power supply wherever you are going. We don’t know much about booking flights and taxis – but when it comes to laptop power chargers – we are the global experts.

What’s the difference between 2-pin and 3-pin laptop power cords?

February 7th, 2012
You may not have realised by some laptop chargers come with two pin cords and some come with three pin cords. This isn’t just a British thing, but the same thing is observed with both European and American laptop power cords.
Without wanting to get technical in our blog, the difference between the two is the inclusion of the ‘earth’ wire. Most manufacturers make their laptop chargers compatible with three pin cords – meaning that the earth wire is included. However some manufacturers, most notably Sony, have elected to make the majority of their laptop adapters without an earth – and therefore they are made with a 2 pin plug.
To fill customers in on a bit of the ‘lingo’. Two pin laptop power cords are sometimes to referred to as ‘figure-8 cords’ whilst their three pin counterparts are referred to as ‘mickey mouse cords’. As you might have guessed these cords are not cross-compatible. It is for that precise reason so as to avoid confusion and problems with cross-compatibility that Laptop Power UK dispatches all our laptop power cables with a complimentary (and correct) laptop power cord.

What to do if your laptop charger starts beeping

January 23rd, 2012

The purpose of the Laptop Power UK blog isn’t to bombard people with technical information, but to give quick answers and insights into problems and issues people may be having with their laptops. We thought it helpful to share some information on beeping laptop chargers. It sounds like a strange thing to happen and the chances are it will never happen to most people. However if you are reading this post then the chances are your laptop charger has been beeping recently and also stopped working.

A beeping laptop adapter is a sign that an internal capacitor either has blown, or is about to blow. Unfortunately laptop power cables cannot be economically repaired so the bad news is that you will have to source a new one. The good news is twofold. Firstly, but noticing this beeping noise and then reading this blog you have now successfully identified the problem as one of needing to replace the power supply. Secondly you have arrived on the website of the largest distributor of original OEM laptop chargers in Europe – Laptop Power UK.

Let us help you get rid of that annoying beeping sound, and get you back ready for business in 2012. Don’t get fleeced by the huge prices in high street stores and waste time talking to shop assistants who know nothing about laptop power solutions. The chances are they will try to fob you off with an overpriced universal laptop charger. Also don’t waste time on £5 products on Ebay. You will end up buying three or four of these with each purchase getting more annoying than the last. We are here with the products and knowledge to make your problems go away – quickly and for the long term.

Why Delta Electronics and Liteon are the Sotheby and Christies of laptop chargers

January 22nd, 2012

Delta Electronics and Liteon are not household names, but maybe they should be! These two companies are the leading OEM producers of amongst other things laptop chargers and laptop adapters. Each and every day you use your laptop or netbook, the chances are you are using one of these two companies’ products to power your device.

As in most industries, there is no shortage of young and competitive pretenders. However the fact of the matter is that most of them are not very good and reliability of the equipment produced does not compare to that produced by Delta or Liteon. Why is this? Well firstly these two companies had the First Mover Advantage. They were awarded the large contracts back in the late 80’s and early 90’s to make laptop chargers for the biggest brands such as HP and IBM.

Over the years they have amassed a lot of expertise, quality control and patents. Many of the patents owned by these companies restricts the ability of competitors to make laptop chargers and laptop power supplies that meet the same performance cost effectively. If market reports are to be believed these companies are starting to struggle as laptop sales have fallen off globally. However don’t bet against Delta and Liteon being the companies who supply your laptop power cables in ten years’ time. Laptop Power UK is the leading distributor of Delta Electronics power supplies in Europe – so please get in touch.

Look for overall value when replacing your laptop chargers and adapters

January 12th, 2012

We get phone calls every day from customers who feel they have leapt out of the frying pan and into the fire when it comes to replacement their laptop power supply. Of course nobody budgets for a replacement laptop charger. After all it is not the kind of purchase we ever envisage ourselves having to make – that is until our previous one breaks or is lost. It won’t make you feel any better, however you are not alone. Thousands of replacement laptop adapters are sold each and every day up and down the UK. A common mistake customers make is to look to purchase the cheapest possible laptop power supply they can find.

In some ways this seems like a great idea at the time. However it is likely to cost you a lot more in terms of both time, money and annoyance. Purchasing original OEM laptop chargers is the only way to go. They last the longest. They have all the proper safety certification and they are the most energy efficient.

Purchasing cheap £10 Chinese laptop adapters is fraught with danger. If a problem is worth solving, it is worth solving properly and permanently. If you purchase a laptop power lead from Laptop Power UK it will be original. It will come with a one year warranty. Also the cost of our chargers is far less than those you will see on Ebay for one simple reason – you will only ever need to buy one of them because they will last for longer than your laptop. That’s what you get with OEM original quality.

The future of the laptop – Will the Tablet and Smartphone takeover?

January 4th, 2012

Given the recent popularity of the Ipad 1 and Ipad 2 many people have begun to question whether the growth of tablets spells the beginning of the end of the laptop. From talking to our customer base it would seem that people don’t view the tablet and the laptop and substitutes. For one tablets can’t be used for word processing therefore are of a lot less use to students and professionals. Secondly, ergonomically tablets aren’t that popular with everyone given the lack of a keyboard.

It does seem that the days of the netbook may be drawing in however with the growth of the tablet. Since netbooks also lack computing power, they represent a more direct substitute to the Ipad and the Samsung Galaxy. Again however it remains to be seen whether the absence of a physical keyboard is something people will readily accept over time.

Here at Laptop Power UK, our job is to prepare for every eventuality. As well as stocking a full and comprehensive range of laptop chargers and netbook power leads, we are now stocking original replacement tablet screens and digitizers / touch panels. Whether you have cracked your laptop screen or Ipad screen, have lost your netbook power cord or simply need a new laptop battery, Laptop Power UK will be able to source the correct replacement part for you.
