Dell Laptop Chargers – Common pitfalls and Complaints

Dell laptop chargers can be difficult to replace properly. The key word in this sentence is ‘properly’. There are a lot of non-original Dell chargers being offered in the marketplace, so what is the problem? The first and most obvious issue, as identified on various BBC documentaries, is the fact that most non-OEM laptop chargers on the market lack proper safety certification such as the ‘CE’ mark and ‘UL’ certification which allows the products to be legally sold in the USA and Europe.
Original Dell chargers include a smart chip IC inside the tip head. This allows the laptop adapter to charge the Dell laptop battery, as well as running the laptop off the mains power. A common compliant of customers who purchase generic power supplies is that it will run the Dell laptop off the mains but never charges the battery – a big problem for people always on the move.
Laptop Power UK only stock original Dell laptop chargers sourced direct from the manufacturer. Part codes we support include PA-10, PA-12, PA-21, PA-3E, PA-2E, PA-4E and PA-9E. Always insist on purchasing the original product and part number. This guarantees quality, reduces confusion and helps to avoid the nightmare scenario of that all important overseas business trip being rudely disrupted by a faulty generic Dell laptop adapter.
