  • 19v, 3.16Amp DC-DC power supply?

    Hello,

    I am looking for a power supply that will support my HP Pavilion N5190 Laptop's Docking station. It calls for 19 volts DC, and 3.16 Amps. What DC-DC power supply that you know of will support my needs? Thanks for helping out an eager newbie who's been searching on a56K connection....

    Like this? I've seen a few others that come with jacks for different brands. Try searching for 19V laptop car adapter.

              This one looks promising! I could just cut the cig lighter adapter off, and solder the wires to the appropriate power source. Does anyone know how well the "ebay special" power supplies work?

                I've been using my ebay special for 2 months now to power a hp epc at 19Vdc and it works great.

                      Won't really matter, because my laptop has a battery. Nice little tank circuit.

                        I just found one for $29. Still not as cheap and only 45W. Then I noticed the ZPC for $199, almost half what I paid.
