Why do laptop chargers break?

We get lots of calls and emails from customers who are puzzled as to why their toshiba equium a200 charger has broken or why their HP Compaq nc6320 charger  just isn’t working anymore. Surely the Power supply for the laptop should last as long as the laptop itself? If only that were the case, we’d all have an easier time with our laptops if we never had to replace a single component and they worked as well as the day we bought them for years afterwards, but unfortunately that’s just not the way things work.

Having said that there are ways that you can prolong the life of your fujitsu power supply so that you get the most value for money out of your products and you don’t find yourself scanning the Laptop Power UK website every couple of months. To start with, it’s always best to go for quality. There are cheap, low quality laptop chargers available from all kind of places on the internet but normally if you spot a HP 391172 001 adapter at an impossibly low price, it’s risky to go for it. You could end up paying more in replacements that you would have paid for a full price charger. There are also universal chargers available but they’re a clumsy solution to a problem that could be solved elegantly if you visit Laptop Power UK. We’ve got the UK’s largest range of Laptop replacement parts and laptop adaptors and all of our products are of the highest quality you’ll find on the web or the high street.

Then finally there’s the one tip that most people ignore and it ends up costing them on both their electricity bill and in sony laptop chargers. “Turn it off!” So many people just leave their laptops on and plugged into the socket overnight for convenience. This will end up costing a packet just so that you don’t have to spend a few extra minutes waiting for your computer to fire up in the morning.
