Default I used a ac-dc adaptor + a DC car power plug & now I get an orange blinking light. - 03-02-2010, 09:12 PM

I bought this last year & it has worked great.

Car Charger POWER Adapter F Dell inspiron mini 9 10 12 - eBay (item 330407912029 end time Mar-25-10 07:50:04 PDT)

Then recently for the heck of it (it was so cheap ..was less than $2)... I bought this...
110V-240V AC to DC Car Charger Power Converter Adapter - eBay (item 200426951444 end time Mar-11-10 18:08:25 PST)

Thinking I could use them together in place of a regular AC power cord.

But when I put them together and tried to use it.... my dell mini doesnt seem to recognize it and it is not charging. The battery light/LED blinks orange. I immediately unplugged it. Why doesnt it work?

The ac-dc converter works ok with other devices.

My guess is that the AC to DC adapter isn't capable of supplying enough current.
