    Hi everyone, first time posting here, just need a bit of advice at the minute, I have had my laptop for about 1 year and a half now, and my first charger broke about 4 months ago to which I bought a charger off of Amazon UK, which I have never been totally happy with as I don't think the pin in the charger went well with the laptop and could only charge on a certain angle :(
    Anyway i think that has broke as i cannot get it to charge when i got home today, but I'm just abit worried as it just stopped working suddenly, im feeling abit anxious about it as im worried that the stuff inside it to do with charging has broke inside it if you get what I mean :p
    But anyway, it cant be the stuff inside it can it? If not can anyone reccomend a good charger for my laptop on a site like Amazon UK or play.com or somewhere, preferably under £20 :)
    Thanks for the help, if this is all worded wrong just ask if you need more info, thanks.

    It never pays in the long run to buy a cheap AC Adapter which is not directly equivalent to the original factory item, and £20 is definitely bargain basement for that item!. Cheap copies aren't made to the same standard, they may get too hot, generally have a short life, and have been known to damage the laptop.

    The original equipment replacement AC Adapter for the TN36 is here: http://store.packardbell.com/store/pbemea/en_GB/pd/productID.219922700/categoryId.52229700

    It costs more than twice as much as that cheap "knock off" you bought, but it's the only one I would recommend and the only place I'd get one from if I needed a new battery for a Packard Bell laptop. I wouldn't trust a cheap copy.
