How To Select The Correct Laptop Charger

Many people get a bit confused when they try to select the correct Replacement Laptop Charger should theirs become faulty. There are lots of different makes and types of laptop charger on the market but only the ones with the correct specifications will work. These specifications are, specifically, the size of the barrel that will plug into your laptop and the power it produces.

The power of a laptop charger will be displayed on the charger box as this is a legal requirement. It should also tell you somewhere on the base of your laptop or in the handbook. You should be looking for the output volts and amps. Multiply these figures together and you will also know the wattage. One of the easiest ways to find an adapter is to search for the model of the laptop eg HP Compaq CQ61 Charger. The website you visit should display the volts and amps for you to check.

So you have now found the charger with the correct power for your model of laptop, you need to make sure the charger tip will fit. If you check you will see all tip sizes are given next to the image of the replacement part. You can simply measure the diameter of your charger to confirm the compatibility.
