Laptop Power Adapter
by anabranch - 5/6/09 2:44 PM
I have an Acer Aspire 5612 WMLi laptop. The power adapter is acting up (i.e. plug it in and after about 5 seconds the green light goes out and the computer switches to the battery). I am looking into a replacement adapter. My local computer store sells Dr. Battery adapters. Their website says that the replacement for my laptop is a 19V/3.42A unit but my adapter says it is 19V/4.74A.
Should I get this adapter or try and find a 4.74A unit? I am not very familiar with power requirements and what they mean.
Thanks in advance.
