Hi there.
You must only use power supplies which are specific to that particular laptop, even if you have a power supply of the same voltage but the amps are different it may power the machine but in my experience they have blown the PB (power board) which has resulted in no charge at all right down to the motherboard itself being blown.
I suggest you use the power supply specific to that laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Search google for a charger for your laptop model and look at the specifications shown for the chargers available. The voltage may also be on the bottom of the laptop and also on the battery pack.

I have an Augen netbook and though fully charging the battery, the indicator says it's only half charged once I disconnect the charger. I need to fix this, if possible as I bought it on sale and thre are...


Recommend you compare the Volt & Amp reading on both the A/C adapter & Netbook.
The Volt & Amps will be on the underside of the netbook.
The Volt & Amps will be listed on the A/C adapter (wall charger).
Compare the numbers:

Example: 19Volts / 3.9 Amps

These numbers SHOULD match between the netbook & A/C adapter.

Can a nx9110 charger /ac adapter work on an ibm thinkpad t30


Thefollowing three conditions should be met for you to use a charger safely. 1)Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.
For example, ifyour old charger provides 19.5V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5Vor 18.5V.
2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.
For example, ifyour original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger thatprovides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.
3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop. Pleasecheck carefully before using nx9110 adapter on t30.

Using battery charger with 3.42A vs 4.74A for lap top


YOu can always use higher amps when required but not lower than required. Voltage should stay the same as original charger - keep it in mind.

Charging


I don't know of a universal charger that you can use with these as the battery requires a certain amount of voltage and amps you can't get with a universal. When looking for a charger, I would look for one that offers an output of 19V and 3.5 a. There are alot of chinese versions on ebay that offer 18.5V, but I'm not sure if they are great for the batteries or not.

Wont turn on


Maybe that is why Dell makes an external battery charger.

It may be the ac power adapter (BRICK) is not putting out the required voltage/amps.

Battery/Power problem


many toshiba laptops used a 15 volt supply, but look at he label attached to the bottom of the unit. it should spell out what voltage and what current (in amps). if a 15 volt supply is used that can only supply 100 milliamps, while the laptop needs more than 1000 milliamps, the laptop will play dead
