Acer AC Adaptor

  morddwyd 11:26 18 Jul 2014

I have an Acer Aspire 5738PG.

The power adapter, Acer Part No PA 1650 02 (which is on the blink, hence the query) is 19v with a black tip, same colour as the socket.

The only 19v replacements I can find have yellow tips, and I know these don't fit.

Anybody suggest a source of supply of a black tip 19v, or a yellow/black adaptor?

Please ignore.

Just found one.

Thanks Wiilwell, that's where I found one.

I tried searching for " black tip" instead of "19v"

The Amazon ones seem to have yellow tips; Toshiba ones have black tips. Surprising if the Acer Amazon ones don't fit. Foe Toshiba see:;

Having been 'stung' once regarding buying replacement chargers, I would be inclined to check and have confirmed the details of the device, before making a final purchase.

Going on the link provided by john bunyan, there appears to be a number of options, including 'genuine'?.

"Going on the link provided by john bunyan, there appears to be a number of options, including 'genuine'?."

Even genuine, using Acer Part No., comes up with a yellow tip.

Surely the diameter, not the colour, is critical - or does the colour denote different diameters?

strong textI clever, a multi voltage/tip covering 15_24v seems to meet your need From Amazon, my one does exactly as described across several of my devices

Expensive, but this one has every tip you could want!

The last time I bought a multi-function charger was from Maplins, and a few days later bought another similar device from an eBay Hong Kong seller at a much lower price including airfreight charges. On inspection, I was unable to find any difference between the two items, except the UK price being charged!.
