How do I know my laptop charger pin size?
There are two parameters required to find out the pin size in connector for a power adapter. The first is the outer diameter of the pin and the second one is the inner diameter of the pin. Both are measured in mm and you can measure it with the help of a good precision scale.
How do I know what size my adapter is?
To find out the exact connector size, measure the center pin and the inner diameter of the port. Then, compare the sizes to determine which type of adapter you need to buy. A good universal adapter has the right polarity and voltage for your laptop.
How do I know the specs of my laptop charger?
Find your laptops wattage The main element you’ll want to look for is the output voltage for the charger (sometimes referred to as DC voltage). Check in your laptop manual for the voltage requirements or look at the original power supply if you still have it. It will often be something like this: OUTPUT: 19VDC 3.42A.
How do I find the part number on my laptop charger?
The serial number of the charger is written on a grey label affixed to one side of the charger.
How do you measure a charger tip?
If you go into a shop you can compare and test the connector size, or if you are technically minded you can measure the size of the port and pin yourself. If you are measuring you need the diameter of the center pin for the (ID) and the inner diameter of the port (OD).
Can I use any laptop charger for my laptop?
The short answer is; No. You should never intentionally use another laptop’s charger on your laptop. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a pinch or if your battery is about to die. Plugging a different charger that isn’t meant for your specific model will not lead to anything good.

Amperage doesn’t play all that much of a role.
Can I use a different HP charger for my HP laptop?
The issue is the model of the laptop and the model of the chargers. If the voltage is different or if the watts of the charger is less than the laptop needs yes it can cause problems. Also an ill-fitting plug is a problem. So really you only want to use the “right” adapter for your laptop and not a near-miss.
How do you know if a charger is compatible?

- The amperage (amps) of the adapter has to be equal or greater than the device.
- The polarity of the adapter has to be identical.
