New to laptops. When plugged into the mains, does a laptop need a surge protector? The cable has an AC to 19v DC adapter does this do away with the need?Thanks,Oddgeezer
I'd use a surge protector if you're going to leave it plugged in just because the PSU on a laptop is eternal rather than the internal one used by a desktop doesn't give it any additional protection from surges and spikes.
If the PSU is eternal, it should last for ever.
I've noticed I get the odd spark when unplugging or connecting the laptop PSU, so I always unplug it at the laptop end first!
OK eXternal, spellchucker never did substitute for brain while proof reading, apologies for turning mine off.
And my apologies for being an unwitting proof reader. These things spring into view, I have no control over it.
So the oblong AC to DC thingy must be the eternal...er I mean eXternal PSU. Kinda makes sense when you think about it - but I didn't.Ta much!
