Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00

Q: Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00

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 under or about 70? ^w^ thanks CX 8D

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.

For more choiceslook at the link


Amazon.co.uk: 12v car inverter.

Much more flexible since 150 W will EASILY CHARGE 3 laptops while running one as well.

Simple.

( If you don't have a car then just get a separate 12 V car battery which you could charge at home and connect it to the inverter with a pair of Crocodile clips -- but I wouldn't imagine taking a Car battery on a Bus and charging a laptop while on the vehicle !! -- in any case any sort of Power reservoir that needs what you want won't be easily portable so I assume you have a car or a colleague who has one).

One of my part time gigs is shooting Nature photography in remote places -- power isn't usually available in these places so the Inverter is a perfect solution for me too.

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.
 

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.

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?

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.

Hello, my lenovo charger broke. It charges but the wire has to be in an angle and if I move it stops charging.
I have a second charger for laptop. The charging port fits in perfect.

Here is the specs of my charger
Output 20V - 3.25 A

Specs of other charger (Really old Toshiba ~ 2007)
Output 19V - 6.3 A

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 have an HP Pavilion g6-2244sa laptop and my charger has broken down, I was looking for another charger to buy and I came across a charger that holds 18.5v but my laptop charger that I previously used was 19.5v. Would I be able to use this charger? Will there be a change in how the laptop charges? Will it damage my laptop? 

A:Can I use a 18.5v charger to a 19.5v Laptop?

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.

When i got this message the first couple of times i just got a new one thinking i did something wrong, and the charger im using right now is not a dell charger, it's a knock-off one that i got for half the price on a discount website. This charger however did the same exact thing as my dell chargers, it worked great for a few weeks then gave me the message about it not being a dell 90wat charger although it is slighty different because this time it says it is plugged in but not charging.

any ideas what is wrong?

On that same screen it should say how to disable that message. Sometimes you have to update the BIOS to actual be able to get rid of that message or be able to use non-Dell adapters. Latest BIOS is here: http://support.dell.com/support/dow...-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=252216

But if its not charging the battery then there could actually be an issue. Possibly with the charging circuits on the mainboard, or there's possibly something damaging the adapters, like brownouts or surges. Does the jack in the laptop seem loose?

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 was using my laptop when it suddenly shut down when I pressed FN+F8. When I restarted it, it seemed fine, but the sleep button (FN+4) not longer worked. I checked Lenovo Settings to see if something was wrong, but it said it was fine. I pressed the laptop battery icon on the taskbar and the laptop shut down again. When I restarted it again, Windows didn't load correctly, so I had to restart it again. Windows loaded the second time, but when it came back on, the Wifi no longer worked and the airplane power mode was on. I ran a Lenovo.com diagnostic, but when it was running, the screen flashed from battery power to charger power, and the laptop urged me to activate the airplane power mode, so I did.

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.

Hi to all seven forum,
I came here for a simple question today, the question is, is it better for laptop battery that when I using laptop it is plugged in all time to ac adopter although it is fully charged.
one thing I know that when plugged in charger, the battery not in use, I test that remove battery when laptop in ON condition and AC charger is plugged, the laptop remain ON, so I mad a personal experience that using laptop with plugged in charger, it could save the battery. is it rite.?
Note: that I m not plugged in charger all the time, I only plugged in it when I turn ON laptop. when laptop is not in use and the battery is fully charged (infect it is always charged) I plugged out the AC adopter.
I read many article where many peoples asked the same thing that "should they plugged in charger all the time, (include when laptop not in using)".
but my question is simple which is "should I plugged in charger all time only when I use laptop? is it better for battery.? or it must necessary that we should drain all battery then plugged in charger and remove it when fully charged.?
(sorry for my bad English)
laptop model is Dell Inspiron N4050. 6 cell Li on batter I think. (or lithium)

A:Should I plugged in charger to laptop when I using it.

I'm amazed that this gets asked so often, and I haven't been able to figure out why. There's no reason and no harm in leaving the battery connected all the time. There's no reason to unplug the AC power once it is full charged. In fact, doing so could potentially shorten the life of your battery if it's recharging from a small usage up to 100% often.

I still don't know why people insist on making this a difficult process, to be honest. If you use the laptop on AC power, great. If you use your battery often, or even occasionally, it's a good idea to drain it down completely every so often, and then recharge it back to 100%. There's no harm in using the laptop on AC power with the battery in the laptop.

Should any charger with the same model number work? The model number is ADP-65JH BB

I've been looking around on ebay...I see some with a 2 prong connection and some with 3. Some have slightly different amperage ratings.

Do I need the exact numbers or should any charger with the model number ADP-65JH BB work?
 

A:Is there anything to I need to know when buying a laptop charger?

Better post all info you can get. Not likely, but possible that 2 chargers with same model number different enough to do harm. Small differences in amperage ratings don't matter, but voltages definitely would, of course. You need to be certain on input voltage and connector types on both ends. You need the right input for your country (which may be indicated by a single letter at the end of the model number).

I've got a Toshiba Qosmio G50 laptop that I bought quite a few years ago and the charger for it finally konked out on me from heavy use and bending of the cord.
I've been trying to search for a charger for it with the same specifications as the one I currently have. I think the product number for it is PA3658E-1AC3B and it's specs are like 120W, 6.3A, 19V, 5.5mm/2.5mm.

I have been unable to find a charger with these specs and when I search for other chargers with similar specs and so on, when lists of compatible laptops come up, my laptop is never in the list. Now I'm wondering if this is due to because the laptop is actually incompatible or due to the fact that it is rather quite old.

Also, does anyone know what laptop chargers I could be able to use or specs for them. Like would a charger with these specs work for my laptop?
Output: 19V 4.74A 90W
DC Barrel Tip: 5.5 x 2.5mm

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

A:Need new laptop charger for my Qosmio G50

I don?t know where do you live but go to eBay and there you will find proper charger. As far as I know you can use any charger that is offered for Qosmio G50.

If you want to have original part for your model contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country and order one.

Hi,

I am looking to buy a universal laptop charger for my Sony Vaio Flip 14A. I just wanted to get some opinions on whether these are normally safe and if there are any risks associated with buying these?

The original spec of my charger is http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?sp..._id=&am_id=&cm_id=140105335569ed55e27b&pm_id=

while the one I am looking to buy is here http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?sp..._id=&am_id=&cm_id=140105335569ed55e27b&pm_id=

My main concern is that while my laptop charger shown output 19.5V = 2.3A, the universal one shows 19.5V = 4.7A. I wonder if this can be an issue?

Would appreciate some opinions.

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.

A:Laptop charger not charging

You need to replace it with a genuine Dell replacement adapter. Aftermarkets will NOT work on that unit.

Hope I'm posting this is the right section. I'm not very tech savvy so please forgive any ignorance on the right terms for anything!

I think I'm having a problem with my laptop charger and would like some advice on how I can proceed. I've considered getting in a tech guy to actually look at it but I'm not sure how serious the problem is and if the solution might just be something easy I can do myself (like buying a new charger!)

Previously I was primarily running my Toshiba Satellite laptop plugged in to the wall all the time since I use it as a home computer. We got a new kitten recently, which has meant leaving cords out isn't a good idea as we teach her not to chew things, and so I've had to use the battery during the day when using my laptop and then charge it overnight. I noticed the battery was draining really fast and then eventually stopped charging completely (it was saying plugged in, not charging) and since it was a few years old I just figured the battery needed to be replaced, which I did. I followed the instructions to let it recharge and discharge several times and it has been working great for the last few weeks.

However yesterday after wearing out the battery, I still had some work to do and so plugged it in. It seemed to be charging fine at first but then I noticed it had slowed down a lot, and that the orange light that indicates if it's charging or not was turning on and off. It seems to charge for about ten to fi... Read more

A:Possible problem with laptop charger

Its possible that all you might need is a new a/c adapter because the cat might of chewed on the other one.since the battery has been replaced i dont think thats the problem.till the cat learns not to chew on cords you can put tabasco sauce on the cords. it might cure it of chewing and wont hurt the cat.

Hello, this is urgent. This just happened a while ago. I was playing a game here on my laptop and it was under 20% battery life, as I continued to play when it was plugged in. And all of a sudden I hear a spark and then my laptop shut down unexpectedly, and I immediately unplugged it and tried turning it on but it wouldn't turn on for a few minutes. Afterwards everything was normal, but as I plugged the charger back in the light indicator on the side of my laptop wont lit up anymore.So I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the charger is broken. Please help.
