Laptop Chargers and Laptop Adapters – Is it worth going to the High Street?

Given the dramatic surge in UK laptop sales, there has been a corresponding rise in associated laptop peripherals and accessories. Unfortunately for UK customers, the quality of laptop spare parts on the market is of particular concern. As the price of laptop chargers has plummeted on selling platforms such as Ebay and Amazon, there has been a emergence of counterfeit laptop chargers and laptop adapters that don’t meet European safety standards. Many laptop charger labels have also been produced to illegal standard with RoHS and CE safety marks being applied to products which have never been safety tested.

Laptop Power UK has seen sales increase over the past two years as customers realise it is a false economy to purchase a laptop charger for £10. The true manufacturing cost of producing a laptop adapter that will last for the same length of time as your laptop is well above this figure. Laptop Power UK don’t waste peoples time, we just supply premium quality products that are going to stand the test of time. We know how frustrating it is when your laptop charger breaks, and the last thing a customer needs is to buy another faulty charger so your laptop suffers more down time.

Customers are encouraged to browse our full range of laptop adapters, which possess all the most exacting safety standard certificates. It is because Laptop Power UK’s chargers have such exacting safety standards that our products have been particularly popular with purchasers in UK schools and Universities. Once a product is going to be used by school children, safety comes right back up to the top of the list and the fact Laptop Power UK is the largest seller of laptop chargers into UK schools should tell you something about our product quality.

In addition, it is worth noting that poor product quality has not been confined to laptop chargers. Laptop batteries have been flooding the UK market with poor battery life and some which have exploded – the majority of which are being peddled on Ebay. Whilst everybody likes a bargain, a good quality laptop battery is not going to be available for £30, due to the manufacturing cost of making a battery with high quality Sanyo or Panasonic Cells. In Laptop Power UK’s experience of talking to customers, this purchase will likely cause you long term grief and inconvenience, and worse still may damage your laptop. Come straight to Laptop Power UK for a premium range of laptop chargers and laptop batteries and let us get it right for you, first time.
