Dell charger plugged in not charging? – We know why

As the UK’s largest seller of Dell laptop chargers, many of our customers come on the phone with common questions. One of the most common and frequent questions goes something like – ‘ive bought a replacement dell charger from ebay and it isnt charging up my laptop’. It is a common problem which we may be able to shed some light on. A few years ago Dell began to introduce a special ’smart tip’ in their laptop adapters which stopped non-original Dell chargers being able to charge up the laptop battery.

A lot of cheaper replacement Dell laptop chargers purchased on Ebay and other selling platforms dont take account of this technology and dont incorporate it. This means that these laptop adapters either wont work at all, or if they do work they wont charge up the battery and therefore you cannot use your laptop without the mains lead plugged in -which for most people isnt a long term solution.

Laptop Power UK only sell original Dell laptop adapters for precisely this reason. The benefits of using our company is that as well as getting original Dell equipment you also benefit from the personal service, knowledge and same day dispatch delivery service that you simply wont get if you go to Dell themselves. You can guarantee that a laptop power supply bought from Laptop Power UK will charge your battery and will be a piece of genuine Dell equipment.
