Default Bad Charger - 01-16-2013, 07:11 PM

Before I lost/misplaced my charger/AC adapter, I confirmed it was bad (used a voltmeter). I found a working charger from a Dell Inspiron B120. It has the same voltage rating and a higher amperage rating, so it should work.

I can't check the tip size or polarity against my Mini 910 adapter because I lost/misplaced it, and I can't find anything on-line and the Dell Support guys want to sell me a new adapter.

Can someone please check their adapter and report the tip O/D (or color) and the polarity (the little icon on the body of the adapter).

Please and Thanks.

Tip appears to be 7/32. Center positive polarity.

Hope this helps!

I have found that the Mini 9 is compatible with a lot of Inspiron chargers, including third party.
