Laptop Power UK have decided to post a blog explaining to customers how to know if a laptop charger somebody is recommending for you is going to be compatible with your laptop.Firstly, you need to find out what specification of laptop charger is required by your laptop – since there are lots of different types of laptop adapters.You can either look on the underside of your laptop and it will tell you the OUTPUT voltage and amps required.For HP laptops this information may be hidden underneath the battery so you will need to remove the laptop battery first to reveal this information from the underside of your laptop.
An easier ‘cheat’ method to know which laptop charger you require is to simply look at the OUTPUT volts and amps from your previous adapter’s label.Now then, it goes without saying that the laptop adapter tip that plugs into the side or back of your laptop has to be indentical to your previous laptop charger.However, once you have matched the tip size, you simply need to ensure that the wattage of your replacement laptop adapter either matches OR EXCEEDS your required wattage.What is the wattage i hear you ask.This is simply the laptop charger’s voltage and amps multiplied together.So, a 19v 3.42a laptop charger is described as a 65w charger.As long as the tip is the same, a laptop requiring a laptop charger with 65w can either be replaced with another 65w laptop adapter or say a 90w charger. However you could not do the reverse – you could not replace a 90w charger with a 65w charger since it would not be powerful enough for your laptop.It will work for a short period successfully, but is likely to burn out after 2-3 months.
Fortunately for our customers, Laptop Power UK are experts in this field.We do all the above thinking for you, and our carefully complied databases ensure that you will receive the correct laptop charger for your machine at the first time of asking.On our website we also provide customers with a clear image of the adapter tip that we believe you require which gives customers an opportunity to double check what we are saying is correct!
