Sony Vaio Laptop Charger

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My wife has the Sony Vaio VPCEB11FM and we've misplaced the charger. Is there a cheap place to get these at? will any charger do?

Not any, but most would. The new charger must have the same 3 things as the stock charger, things that are written on the case of the old one:
*same voltage (usually +19VDC, rarely +12VDC)
*at least the same amount of wattage, computed as voltage (say +19V) by max current (say 3.3A) for 65W; check the values on your charger. If you buy a 90W charger it will be even better, if you buy a 45W it will toast.
*same connector so you can actually plug it in the lappy

...I realise you lost your charger so you may have difficulties finding this data. However you could search on the manual or simply go in a laptop store and look for a similar laptop as yours and check out the readings on the charger. A friend recently bought for a Dell laptop a charger from ebay. The charger came from an Acer, but that had the voltage, power and connector for his lappy, he bought it and it worked. It was like 20$.

damn yeah I wouldn't have any idea on what those values were. I'll try to see if I can find a manual on it. If not..then I guess best buy?

EDIT: I looked at the manual, says nothing about the battery. Are the tips usually different from laptop to laptop? I found this one on ebay, it says it supports my model on the title, but not on the description page?

what do u think? what if I go to goodwill electronics and buy one from there? hehe
