I bought mine from a local comp shop I needed a 120W one which was a Vanson SMP-120W and it had multi heads andthat cover just about every type and it was £35 they also do one to plug into the car.

There are literally 1000s of cables available.

Different Amperage
Different connector
Different voltage output
Recessed and exposed connectors so there is no such thing as one type for all.

Overall a couple of minutes with google.

Are you referring to the mains lead or the power supply? If it is only the mains lead you require then almost any electrical or PC shop should be able to help, unless of course it uses a non standardmains lead.

A good source for leads and cables of all types can be found here click here

have you asked if the hotel would post it back to you? Or are you assuming that room service will have it on ebay by now?
