Default Dell Mini car power supply - 08-11-2009, 09:54 PM

As mine has yet to arrive can someone help me with a question on the power supply.

I have a car power supply for a Dell D laptop will this work with the Mini?

If not can anyone suggest a good unit?

If the car adapter output is 19 volts and has the same connector it should work (although, I think the D's have a different plug).
I got a car adapter on eBay for under $20. There are dozens for sale (Mini 9 or Mini 10, same charger). The one I got has different plug ends and a selectable voltage switch which I originally thought would be a good idea.....but it was a bad idea. I don't need the other plug ends and worse, every time I unplug it from the car, it's voltage has to be reset to 19v.

I was just scanning eBay and might get one of these 30 watt deals at less than $9.00 delivered.

There appears to be a lot of sellers listing what appears to be the same charger for the Mini 10 but at almost double the price. Go figure.
