You can use a universal adapter if you find one as long as the output voltage matches an original so that way the laptop turns on and would charge the battery. If you buy a universal adapter without the output voltages matching up then you take a chance on either the laptop not turning on or the laptop turning on and not charging up the battery.

IBM Thinkpad X60- Charging LED ( Amber) flashes continuosly- battery NOT charging


An incompatible charger could be doing this, as could a failed battery charging circuit in the notebook. It is also possible that the battery is no longer capable of accepting a charge. The universal charger must be able to provide the same voltage as the original charger and have an equal or higher rating for wattage or current.

Charging the mp3mp4 player


  1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
  2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
  3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

Charger/power cord not working


your problem might not be the AC adapter but the AC jack of your laptop. if you cant keep a charging icon steady then maybe the AC jack of your laptop is loose already. you might need the help of a guy knowledgeable in electronics to help you out with this one.
