Welcome to CSR Nation
Anyone have a spare genuine Dell PA-10 AC adapter (output 19.5V) or one from a broken Dell computer that you might want to either sell or give away?
I got my sister's old Dell 700m to use as a loaner laptop, but I need an AC adapter. The battery is fried and can't be charged anymore, but the laptop still works fine when plugged in.
Thanks, Kerry. I was hoping for a genuine Dell part. That way I KNOW it works, and I won't have to go through trial-and-error process and then have to possibly return it, which I won't, because shipping wouldn't be worth it. :)
$21.35 for new OEM adapter. I've had good luck ordering OEM power cords on Ebay. This one will ship fast because the seller is in CA (which I think I remember you are too).
Thank you, Alice! That's a great find!
I was hoping to stay under $20 (I know I'm being cheap), but it includes shipping and is still very close to 20 bucks. Yes, I'm in CA. The ones I have seen so far are the generic brands, and when it comes to electronics/computers, generic makes me nervous. I guess I could look at it this way: I got a loaner laptop for $21.35 -- not bad. Not bad at all. :)
Hi, Alice. Just wanted to come back and tell you that I ordered it last Friday, got it in the mail today, plugged it in, and it WORKS, and my laptop is ALIVE! Thanks so much for sending me the link. It appears to be a genuine Dell part, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that it's the real deal and is going to last for a while. The connecting cord to the laptop (not the power cord) seems kind of heavy duty for a small adpater and a small laptop. Hopefully, that's a good thing.
I'm not much of an eBay user, so I never think of looking for stuff there. Thanks again!
You're welcome... I like the original parts as well, especially when I'm ordering from a source I don't know.
