The idiots guide to getting the correct replacement laptop charger

Whilst we are not suggesting readers of this blog are idiots, here in this blog we try to give people a quick rundown of the steps to follow to make sure you get the correct laptop adapter. It doesn’t matter whether you are after a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop charger, a Medion Akoya laptop adapter or a Samsung power supply the same rules apply.

Step 1: Check firstly that it is indeed your laptop charger that needs replacing. Many people go about sourcing a new laptop adapter when in fact there is a different problem with their laptop. Check whether the laptop charger is giving an output on a voltmeter. Another tell-tale sign of a faulty laptop power supply is a green LED power light that no longer comes on.

Step 2: Find out the exact make and model number of your laptop. This is best done by turning your laptop or notebook upside down and recording the precise manufacturing number. Once you have this then you can search on this model number within the Laptop Power UK search box.

Step 3: Check the specification of the laptop charger presented against the one suggested by the Laptop Power UK website. The voltage, amps and pin size of your previous laptop power cable should match those on the product our website suggests. If you don’t have your old laptop adapter then don’t worry. Our databases ensure you will be sent the correct product first time around.
