Laptop Power Adapters/Chargers for HP Mini
The HP Mini is a line of netbook computers , which are smaller versions of notebooks designed to be small, extra lightweight and portable for ease of use when you're on the go. Choosing the right laptop power adapters/chargers for HP Mini will help ensure you always have an effective power supply for your laptop. These will be reliable by providing consistent power to your laptop.
When should you replace your power adapter or charger?
Over time, a laptop's power adapter or charger can become less efficient in providing and sustaining a current to your laptop's battery , which helps to hold it's charge. If you notice that your battery is unable to sustain its charge for more than just an hour or two you may need to replace your power adapter.
You should also replace your power adapter or charger if it malfunctions or appears to be damaged in any way. For example, any visible exposed wiring may prevent a charge from travelling across the wire as efficiently or it could pose a more serious risk if it comes into contact with liquids and other substances.
Features of power adapters and chargers for HP Mini
Many adapters and chargers for the HP Mini laptop feature protection against power surges, which can damage the adapter and your laptop. They also typically feature protection from upsurges in voltage, currents and short circuiting.
You should ensure that a power adapter or charger is suitable for your HP Mini as not just any charger will be compatible. The power supply unit (PSU) should at least match the wattage your original laptop charger is rated at, for example if your original charger is rated at 180 watts then your new charger should be rated at 180 watts.
The charger's jack that connects the charger into the laptop is another important consideration. This should fit comfortably into your laptop's charging port without coming loose when you gently shake or tilt your laptop.
