    My son uses a packard bell easynote MZ35-u005 notebook for school and recently broke the charger/adapter We ordered a new one but the charger that arrived does not meet the original specs. The original charger is 60W with an output of 1.9V at 3.42 amps The new charger is 90W 19V at 4.74 amps. The parts company claims that this is fine. Can we trust them? As we are living in the Falklands it is time consuming and costly to send the charger back and replace it

    Are you sure the original power adapter had an output of 1.9 volts? I do not know of any computer that requires such a low voltage. I'll assume that is a typo and that you meant 19 volts. Try it and see, I think it should be usable. The computer will basically only use the necessary power. The voltage however should be within a couple of volts of stated specifications.
