I am in need of a replacement charger for my netbook, seems the one I currently have has a loose wire somewhere (it works if I wiggle the bit by the transformer).

I know some of the MyBB members sell hardware on the side, and if anyone (reputable members ;) ) has stock of this charger at a reasonable price, I'd definitely be interested in buying.

Charger model: Delta Electronics ADP-30JH B
Input: 100-240V ~ 1.2A
Output: 19V ~ 1.58A

This alternative charger seems to fit the required output specs, but I'm not sure if the pins will fit into my netbook: http://www.prophecy.co.za/gigabyte-odinm-notebook-adapter-with-convertible-plug-tips-p-159229.html

Someone can break charger open carefully, and cut / resolder wires, as good as new :)

Unfortunately that's outside the realm of my expertise. :p

The wire seems a bit frazzled anyway, I think I should just buy a new one.

Find a decent TV repairs shop, ask them to fix your charger for you. It'll cost you a damn sight less than a new one. If you have no luck and there's a Rectron in your area, try pop into there and see if they'll sell you a spare charger.

Does Rectron sell to the public these days?

Yu need to make sure that the wattage is right. 90 - 100 watts should do for a netbook, otherwise the charger will burn out under load.

secondly, make sure your voltage is correct. These universal type adapters have a voltage switch.

I have a spare always - pity you are probably not in my area - could have had you up and running already.Mind you, s'pose I could have done the solder work too.

Think I read somewhere the netbook only needs about 30W. Since it's broke anyway, I could probably try opening it and soldering it.

I'm not German, no, just a fan of Freiherr von Richthofen. ;)

Yip, easy way. But stop wiggling, it could damage your netbook.
