Q: Solved: Portable laptop charger

Hi, I have a portable universal laptop battery charger (13200mAh/48.8Wh) that I brought a while ago. Recently I've purchased a new Sony laptop and on the power brick it says Output 10.5V 4.3A and the portable charger has output 12V 16V 19V/2A. What would happen if I use it for my new laptop?
Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: Portable laptop charger

Because you would be supplying an over voltage to the charging circuit, it may likely cause damage to the motherboard.

Well herro there :3, Anyways YO 8D

Im looking about for a portable charger for my TabletPC (Fujitsu Lifebook T4215) and yeah i know it's old but It works pretty well i will say abeit one big problem it has

It has HORRIFIC Battery life as in i can charge it to the full 4 bars of it's battery and it'll be smoked in about 15-20 mins, I've also got the power settings to near low (The CPU's clocking at 1GHZ now rather than 2GHZ (it's a core2duo t7200 btw) and the screens as dim as can be (I like my screens dim since i love the dark ^^) and since im wanting to travel about with it to my art studio that will kind of not suffice, and also i want to use it for enjoyment like while traveling and such.

So effectively the device i kinda want is to say a portable powerstation, And it'd be cool if it lasted upto per say 3 1/2 hours + from fully charged to near empty And as optionals too it could support nya other two laptops (Lenovo G550 and Acer Aspire 5742) And wouldn't cost me a fortune, 70? would be pretty good, But i also want quality too as this is likely to have some usage to it too.

I don't want the answer "Oh just buy a new tablet" cause i've had that thrown at me and i Don't want to invest money into ANOTHER tablet when i only just bought this one a number of months ago ^^; X),

As said the rest of it's good just not that end, And i'd also rather not take the thing with getting a new battery for it, so Pretty much as the title states, Best portable charger for und... Read more

A:Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00

Hi there

Another possibly better option is to get an AC inverter which you can run from a Car battery -- 12 V DC input ---220 V AC output (as you said 70 GBP I assume UK so electricity supply there (when it's actually working !!) like rest of W/N/E Europe is 220 V not 120 V). This way you can charge the laptop while driving , use the laptop "out in the field" ON MAINS !! and being a 220 V AC you could plug in two other laptops at the same time - I wouldn't actually USE 3 laptops at the same time though on the inverter as you mighty find the Car battery would run down fairly quickly.

(Charging 2 and using one would be fine though).


Here are a load of 150 W one's -- from around 12 GBP to 40 GBP well under your budget --- and to use just plug the inverter into the car cigar lighter socket and your laptop into the standard AC outlet.

Enc pic as well as a link since some people might not know what an "Inverter" is given the lack of any sort of Engineering knowledge these days in Schools etc.

This is the one I use the BESTEK (pic shown) -- as it's 300 W output and even has 2 USB slots for charging USB devices like mobile phones which charge via USB slot (not USB mini==>micro adapters are also available). I have a decent battery in my car so the 300W is fine for me.

Costs 25 GBP and I use a 3 pin ==> European 2 pin adapter as the UK has its 3 pin rather non standard system.

I'm looking around for a universal li-ion portable laptop charger for my samsung series 9 laptop. Is it true that as long the output current and voltage is same or above the original charger it should be fine?
Also the connector tip of the orignial charger is of size 4.0mm/1.7mm diameter, does this mean as long as the universal charger has this tip size (even if it says 4.0mm/1.7mm designed for HP Netbook) it would work?

Has anyone tried this or have a story to tell about power banks?My relatively new X1C does quite poorly on battery if I'm doing real work, e.g. compiling and running apps with Visual Studio & SQL Server.  Fiddling with the battery settings doesn't make that much of a difference so I thought why not carry a brick with me when on the road? I'm just starting to look into it but real stories from real users are just so much better than generic 'reviews' or hidden adverts that have become all too commonplace in the last few years.

Okay so about a week or so ago my laptop (or charger) starting acting strange, would only charge if the charge was in a certain position, so i thought the charger internal wires were broken, so i ordered a new charger and its pretty much the same story, it will only charger in a certain position,now im getting the idea that the port inside is broke ( although looking from the outside of it inside the port, it looks still intact) and getting the impression something needs to be soldered, but i am not so sure, any ideas as to where i go with this? im not very keen on sending it to acer as there service can be hurrendous at times, but if it doesn't cost that much to take it to a local computer store to fix, ill do that, if anyone has any ideas, please let me know

Have a weird problem here. I think my laptop charger needs to be replaced but want to get some opinions. I teach computer classes for a local computer club (software is my area not hardware). Anyway, I plugged my fully charged laptop's plug into the power strip at the club (the projector is also plugged into the same strip). As the class was progressing, I happened to notice my battery's charge was going down - and it should have been getting juice from the electric outlet. Looked at the battery level and it had dropped quite a bit (2 hour battery on my Acer Extensa 5620Z - 3 1/2 years old). Pulled the plug and put it in another socket - no change. Pulled the plug and plugged directly into the wall - no change. Pulled the plug again and reinserted in same socket - started charging the battery. A week later, same problem. Last night I went to charge it at home. Plugged it into the socket here and charger wasn't working - again. Battery level continued to drop. Tried the charger from my daughter's Toshiba (same voltage etc. - we checked). Battery started charging even though her plug was a little loose in the laptop socket. Switched back to my charger and it was still charging.

Am using Battery Bar since the problem first showed up. It shows the wear on my battery is only 23%. Was really surprised since it's the original and I do use it quite a bit. My first thought was that the battery had had it - but apparently not.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?

A:Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't work with charger. Charger is not recognized. Not charger problem.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

Why when i put on my laptop charger laptop goes up to 80 degrees celicus It gets really hot but when i take it off it goes down

A:When putting in laptop charger, laptop goes up to 80 degrees celcius

Thats because the system "steps down" the CPU, GPU, Display brightness among other thing when the computer is running on batteries. With some tweaking you can make it run at 80 degrees all the time, but your battery wont last long. You may also notice it responds a bit better when running on mains. With regards to getting it to run cooler on mains. I have never really tried tuning a computer the other way but someone here may be able to advise. I was expecting to see AMD CPU in your specs and I would in that case say it was normal. Other than that you may have high levels of dust build-up or failed fans inside. If you know someone experienced with laptop repair you could get them to take a look and give it a clean out.

Is this "newer charger" the battery charging circuit in your laptop or do you actually mean the power supply (AC power cord and AC to DC adapter)? If the former, did you have the work done and do you have a warranty? If the latter I suspect you got the wrong power supply.

I have a laptop in which the charger 'pin' (to plug into laptop) seems bad. It's a bit loose when I wiggle it and when in the laptop, the cord has to be positioned just right for it to charge (it seems to lean the pin to where it can charge). I'm not sure if it's the charger or the port.

The charger (call it #1) is 19V, 2.37a, 45w. I have another charger (#2) (same brand laptop, different, lesser model). The voltage specs are 19v, 1.75a, 33w.

Can I safely use charger #2 to verify weather the problem is the charger or the port for charger #1's laptop?

If the connector from charger #2 fits correctly into the laptop in question, then yes, you can use it for troubleshooting the problem.

Some HP laptops actually specifiy a 19.5 volt and an 18.5 volt charger as alternates but the devil is in the details. First, of course, does the "new" charger actually fit in the socket? Can we have the HP part numbers of the two chargers and we can quickly say if they are interchangeable? A new 100% compatible charger can be had for maybe $15 so I can't see any need to run a risk of damaging the laptop.

A:Using a different charger for laptop?

When considering non-original laptop chargers, the voltage needs to match exactly while the current needs to be equal to the original or higher. In your case the current rating for the other charger is fine but the voltage is not correct. It's possible that the laptop has a voltage regulator inside to compensate for the lower voltage but since I have no knowledge of the inner workings of your Lenovo, I can't say whether the 19V is close enough.

Hi I hope I've put this in the right place, if I have'nt I'm sorry.

My husband bought me an early xmas present, which is a laptop, it is equipped with wireless lan, when I read the instruction booklet, it talks as though I can use my laptop wireless but is'nt very specific, especially for a total novice to wireles lan.

Where I'm stuck now, is it says in the instructions connect to a lan instruction no3 says......plug the other end of the cable into a LAN hub connector Check with your lan administrator before connecting to a hub. ???????

whats a hub and who is my lan administraor?

I have read alot on the net about lan etc but I still don't understand. I don't want to go to cafe's or hotels or anywhere else to use my broadband wireless, I have a bad back and would just like to be able to access the internet on my laptop from upstairs if I have to rest up there, as the only phone point we have is downstairs and thats where my broadband is connected to.

Basically what I want to know is, just because my laptop is lan equipped, does it mean that I can use my laptop on the internet wireless as it is, with no other equipment?

Thanks for any help and sorry if it sounds confusing but I am confused lol.
 

A:understanding lan on portable laptop???

If you have broadband set up downstairs (I'm not sure how yours is set up), and a wireless adapter on your laptop, then you need a wireless access point. Which will probably mean getting a wireless broadband router, and going through that setup. The downstairs pc will connect directly to the router with a standard network patch cable.

Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.

Also, I guess it should be noted that my computer needs it's batter renewed, but I don't believe that it's the battery that's not letting it charge.
 

A:Gateway Laptop Charger

What's the exact model number and serial number and SNID number on that Gateway laptop?

Can you submit some images of what that laptop's charging port looks like?

Is that the original power adapter that came with that laptop?

Hi there, newbie here,

The power jack on my toshiba 1900-305 s series laptop is damaged. The power light comes on briefly when the power cable is plugged in but then goes out after a short while without powering up the machine. I therefore need to power up the battery so that there will be enough power for me to extract the small amount of unbacked up data (family photos from a recent event etc) via a flash pen. Is there anywhere I can get a separate charger for the battery, or alternatively a pre-charged battery (anyone got the same laptop that is working and willing to sell a pre-charged battery)? This is likely to be a one off only so that I can transfer the files, I don't think the machine will be repairable or will be prohibitively expensive if it is (currently unemployed). I have inherited a tower pc to replace the laptop. I'm no techie but I can follow instructions and would not be afraid to take the back off a tower pc - laptops are a mystery to me though, but I would be willing to try if it would not damage the data on the laptop. Many thanks for any advice or help anyone can offer.

My charger started acting funny the other day my laptop wouldn't charge I plugged my charger in the port it don't seem to pick up that it is being charged , i thought maybe it was the charger. My mom went bought a charger from Walmart (not the same company charger ) it seemed to work it charged the day after it was fully charge I used it all day till my battery was about to die I got the notification saying 12% go charge your laptop so I plugged it in. It seemed to work but there was a yellow caution sign on the battery icon it wasn't charging but I was keeping the laptop on that is until I took the charger out that's when it just turned off. It is now dead when I try turn it on I see white blinking lights so I don't think it's a battery problem I just can't charge it , when I plug the Chargers none of them seemed to be working. Usually there is a orange blinking light indicating my laptop is being charged it doesn't show that when I plug the Chargers in, now my laptop is dead and I can't turn it on please I need help . side note: I tried and searched everything , and no my charging port is not lose when I plug it in, Please someone help

I bought my laptop recently(about 4 months). Normaly when I connect the laptop to adapter, if the pc is charging the red LED will be on the it will be blue when the battery is fully charged. But when I was working with charger connected, suddenly the battery stopped charging. PC do not recognize the charger now. I tried to run a bios ac-adapter test but it also saying charger is not connected. I can't update BIOS because PC do not recognize the charger. The most weird thing is that the charging LED is blue. But the battery is not charging or fully charged. Now the battery is almost finished. Adapter works fine. (Checked with a different PC in same model) Any help??

A:Laptop do not recognize charger

> I tried to run a bios ac-adapter test but it also saying charger is not connected. This is a symptom of a problem with the motherboard -- either the circuitry that detects when the AC adapter is connected  has failed, or the socket on the motherboard to which the AC adapter plugs-in to is damaged -- not making proper contact with the motherboard. If the computer is still under warranty, contact HP (using the "Contact HP" hyperlnk near the bottom-left of this web-page), and get them to fix it. > I can't update BIOS because PC do not recognize the charger Correct.  When the computer is running solely on battery-power, there's a possibility of running out of "juice" during a BIOS update, resulting in "bricking" your computer.  So, the BIOS updater requires AC power. In my experience, trying to update the BIOS is *NEVER* my first trouble-shooting step.

I'm in need of some major help here. For the past few months my laptop has been randomly charging and running on battery. My brother did something to the charger plugin and now when I plug my laptop charger into my laptop, it just won't charge. I have to spend an hour of my time every few days plugging in the charger, pulling as hard as I can on the cable and pushing something against the laptop charger to keep it plugged in so that it charges. I think that either something in the laptop is bent because I can only have it plugged in in two directions, and maybe something isn't connecting which is why I have to push so hard on the part of the charger that plugs into the laptop. I really can't afford sending it in, and when I tell my parents about it, they honestly could care less about my problem because it's not their problem or their computer. So here I am, with $5, some change, and a laptop that will soon stop being able to run because it's unable to charge. It's got to be the plugin in the laptop that's the problem, right? I have no clue how to fix this
