Supersonic 1022KB: I lost my charger a long time ago. I really need to know what charger can I use to replace it. Also what is the port size cause the manual does tell me. The hole isn't big. When I looked up chargers for it, I seen many different sizes. Pls Help Me.

3 options;
  • take it into a local, independant computer repair store. if they have anything like my left-over hardware, they will have a box of no-longer-used power transformers they will sell you
  • order a new one from the manufacturer
  • take it into a computer retail store and buy a generic power pack with all the assorted different plugs
you simply need to check that the plug physically fits and that the volts and amps are close to spec.
on the underside on the laptop there should be a sticker with INPUT and OUTPUT. look at the INPUT and you should see something like 3.4A and 19Vdc - which is 3.4 amps and 19 volts, as long as you are within, say, 10% of those figures you should be fine.

go too low and it won't charge, go too high and things go pop.
