Dont get confused by the PA-1650-02 part number on a laptop charger

The problem a lot of people come across is ordering a new Laptop Charger is ordering by the part number of their old adapter. This, in many cases can lead to an incorrect adapter being delivered. The reason for this is that the part number can exist for a laptop charger for a completely different make of laptop. As the adapter you receive could possibly be for a different make of laptop, the tip size and power can be different.

As an example, ordering a new PA-1650-02 Charger will not necessarily mean you end up with the correct part as there are also adapters with this code for Toshiba, Advent, HP and more. Some suppliers may have a listing that is specific to a particular make of laptop, some will not.

The better way to order a new laptop charger is by using the make and model number of the laptop instead of the part number of the adapter. This will narrow the search down to the specific type for your make of laptop and prevent the annoying circumstances when you need to return items for refunds.

So before you order a new charger using a part number, beware of the pitfalls of doing so and make further checks to ensure you order the right part first time every time.
