I need a charger for my hp ipaq but i don't know what series

In general, there's three types of charger you might need. Really ancient iPAqs used a round DC jack type charger, then there was a long time where all iPaqs used the same flat 22-pin connector. More recently, HP has moved to the same mini-USB plug used for a lot of mobile devices.

If you're really stuck, try and match your iPaq to the pictures.
