  • Could I buy any laptop car "dc-dc" adapter and use it?

    In theory shouldnt I be able to purchase any laptop car dc-dc adapter and splice and solder the correct end for my laptop assuming the power ratings are the same?

    Why wouldn't you buy a car adapter specifically made for your laptop? Saves you stuffing around.
    Yes you can purchase any dc-dc adapter and change the plug as long as the voltage output of the adapter is correct and it can supply enough current.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

      No specific reason really, just curious.

      Thanks for the answer.
