    Should any charger with the same model number work? The model number is ADP-65JH BB

    I've been looking around on ebay...I see some with a 2 prong connection and some with 3. Some have slightly different amperage ratings.

    Do I need the exact numbers or should any charger with the model number ADP-65JH BB work?

    Better post all info you can get. Not likely, but possible that 2 chargers with same model number different enough to do harm. Small differences in amperage ratings don't matter, but voltages definitely would, of course. You need to be certain on input voltage and connector types on both ends. You need the right input for your country (which may be indicated by a single letter at the end of the model number).
