If you have even the slightest interaction with technology and gadgets, you must be well aware of the importance of a charger, and the impact it can have on your everyday life. All wireless devices require a charger, and a specific time for recharge as well. Though cell phones, tablets, and laptops etc. all come with chargers, it is not necessary for them to last as long as the device itself; and on many occasions, the need to purchase a new charger thence rises.
Before rushing to the store to buy a new charger for your laptop make sure the charger is actually broken and it’s not a false alarm. For instance, if an error that tells you that the battery is not being recharged, that means that there is a problem with the battery, not the charger itself. If the battery is the problem, you can find a guide on how to buy a laptop battery in one of the articles published on the website under the title “laptop batteries”.
When looking for a new charger, a couple of things should be kept in mind. Physically there is one thing you need to remember. Always take your laptop with you to the shop in order to know whether the charging plug fixes into the power jack of the laptop. With more than fifty different types of adapter jacks available in the market, just knowing the brand name of your laptop is not always going to be enough. You might end up with a charger of the same brand but with a different adapter jack, causing you to go to the market again, only this time a wee bit angrily. After the power jack, you also need to be certain about the amount of output power supply produced by your charger, if not mentioned on the adapter or the laptop- which usually is not- you can calculate the Watt produced by the adapter by multiplying the voltage and ampere; both of these are always mentioned on the adapter. Skipping this process can lead you to buy the wrong charger, with the correct charger and consequently a burnt up laptop.
If you end up buying the wrong adapter for your laptop a number of things can go wrong which you won’t be able to fix by “turning it off and on again”. The charger might reverse the polarity. In ideal situations, nothing will happen to your laptop, but in reality, your device could be damaged for good. There are laptops that come with polarity protection feature which would cause the dedicated fuse to burn to inform you of the wrong polarity. Consequently, your device might need to go to the repairman to get the fuse fixed and obviously get a compatible charger.
The wrong kind of charger might not provide your laptop with required voltage. This would not harm the computer but it would drastically affect the working of your laptop, for instance, the processing speed might become unbelievably slow. Smart laptops might shut themselves down, but others might just bear the brunt of your negligence. On the contrary, the laptop might end up receiving the voltage higher than its requirements due to the wrong charger. This would result in a heated up device, shorter lifespan of your device and in extreme case immediate death. Sometimes the charger might have the correct voltage but supplies greater than what the laptop desires. Such cases are not to be worried about, because there won’t be any ramifications. On the other hand, despite correct voltage if the current is lower than the requirements of the laptop, the device could suffer and obviously so would you? In such cases, the power adapter might burn up and fail to work. If the charger does manage to survive, it will not recharge your laptop’s battery, even though it might appear on the screen that the device is charging.
The aforementioned consequences of buying the wrong charger have tried to prepare the users for buying a suitable and compatible charger for their laptops. Chargers are the most important part of a laptop and without a good charge obviously, your laptop is as good as a plastic brick.
