Very likely but keep an Eye or rather a Finger on the adapter just to check that it does not heat up too much.

You could also temporarily connect an ammeter and try the laptop with the adaptor connected and the battery flat just to check how much current it really takes.

You can get them much cheaper onebay! Check with the Toshiba site for the correct part number. I got one for £15!
