Default Replacement AC Adaptor - 11-06-2008, 12:34 AM

Does anyone have any experience with a replacement AC adaptor that works and is less than $59 dollars like the one on Dell's website? Added bonus for something I can pick up at a Radio Shack or Fry's but not necessary. Thanks.

Radio Shack will only have universal adapters starting at around 90 dollars or more.
I can't speak for Frys.
Universal adapters always cost more because they are compatible with a wide range of laptops and contain many tips.

Dell's is a 19volt 1.58amp adapter and uses a type "M" coaxial plug wired tip-positive.

The type "M" plug is extremely common, but 19 volts not so much.

I'd say grab an extra one from Dell before they raise the price.
They're so compact compared to other adapters that it's worth it.

Try eBay. Look for universal laptop adaptors and Dell Mini adaptors.
