I have a dell 600 m and i took my laptop's power charger to radio shack but they said they didn't have anything big enough. I would rather not cut off the one on my charger, so is there any other way i can find one?
Yeah I'm in the same boat. I haven't found any source.
I bought a docking station that came with a psu and will probably hardwire it, that is open it up and solder the connections permanently inside.
That'll leave me with a spare connector for the car.
You can get psus on ebay for relatively cheap.
Depends on the dell, some use a proprietary connector with a 3rd data pin that communicates whether or not it's an official adapter
Think you are in the same boat as me. I know someone actually sells replacements, but you still need a "official" psu for it to charge or work with a dock.
So is there no other option than buying a dock and soldering on the psu? I really would rather not have solder anything or have to buy a dock for no reason.
What if i just cut off the end of my OEM dell charge, and then crimp it onto the power wire of my psu?
Had the same problem with a Compaq Laptop. I couldnt find an exact match, but i did find something .05mm off

Also, since i'm in a hurry (road trip to vegas on wednesday) can i just cut off the end of my oem charger and use that?
