Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop whose power adapter konked out (wire twisted and does not charge the laptop). I have a new Targus power adapter "APA01" with several tips for connection to different laptops. However the specs for the adapter is slightly differnt than the Dell adapter that kokned out. Mainly it is a 90W adapter (as against 65W for Dell) and has an output of 5.5A (against 3.5 in Dells). It is supposed to "smart" meaning it recognizes the laptop and adjusts the output accordingly. However, in the list of laptops for which this can be used (provided by targus), Inspiron 1525 does not exist. So wondering if I can use this adaptor at all or should I buy a different one!! Thanks in Advance.... ShruMaa
On the long term, a power adapter with a bigger amperage can damage battery and battery charger.
Better to get an adapter with same specs as the 65/70W one , or an original replacemant:
