One of the benefits of laptops is the fact that they can run off a battery, should you be unable to connect to a mains power supply. The amount of battery life of a particular laptop depends upon the model, but the average is around six hours.
This means that you would be able to use your laptop on journeys, in libraries, coffee shops and airports, or in an emergency if there is an unexpected power cut.
While having a battery and not needing to rely on mains power is a great advantage of a laptop, you wouldn’t want to depend on it. So what happens if you start experiencing problems with your laptop power cables or laptop power supply?
The signs might not be as obvious as the laptop not turning on. Flickering lights or suddenly shutting down are also signs of problems with your laptop power supply. The source of the problem may be the laptop power cable itself, but you need to check this before you try to source a laptop replacement.
The simplest way to check where the problem lies is to try a compatible laptop power cable from another laptop. If it works, then all you need to do is contact a stockist of laptop spares and order a replacement power cable. If it doesn’t work, you may need to contact a specialist for advice.
