Dell Power adapter help

  dammitt 11:11 14 Jul 2010

I need some advice on behalf of my sister, she is driving me mad with this!
She needed a replacement PA12 Dell adapter for her Inspiron 1525, she brought one off Electronica Avenue's online site, but she claims the voltage is too low and it won't work. She is sending it back and getting a refund but she says that all the online sites sell dodgy adapters and she won't use one again. She can't afford the £60 Dell is asking for one.
So I'm asking what forum members think of buying brand apapters from online sites? Are they proper Dell adapters or fakes?
Can anyone recommend a trusted company to buy laptop accessories from?
