Is there any reason why laptop adapters are so expensive on the high street?

Well, the short answer is yes – but not reasons you would be happy with. Basically high street retailers have taken the lazy option when it comes to supplying laptop chargers. There are loads and loads of different types of laptop adapters - with different manufacturers on the most part using a laptop charger specification that is unique to their company. In other words Sony laptop chargers are only able to be used on Sony laptops, and Samsung laptop adapters can only be used on Samsung machines.

What the high street stores are doing is suppying just one universal laptop charger. Since the universal charger has lots of different tips included in it – most of which will never be used – these adapters are very expensive. Laptop Power UK has built a business up out of accurately identifying and supplying the exact laptop charger your laptop needs. This keeps costs down, tends to be a more smaller, lighter and more power eifficent unit – and there is a lot less to go wrong with it than these over-engineered universal units.

When it comes to laptop power adaptors, noboby knows more about this industry than Laptop Power UK. With a team of technically trained sales staff, if you have a question you would prefer answered over the phone – give us a call.
