Life without a laptop seems nearly unimaginable nowadays. You can take your work with you and can work from everywhere in the world. And not only work, laptops are also a great method of staying in contact via email and VOIP, as well as for relaxing by gaming a bit. But truth is that the more you move your laptop around, the more likely you are to loose accessories such as your Acer laptop power cord.
No matter if you break them or loose them or even forget them in an internet cafe, you’ll need to replace them quickly in order for your laptop to keep working. There are two ways you can go when replacing them: you can buy another genuine one from the original manufacturer or you can buy a generic, no-name product. The latter is often cheaper and they perform the task just as well. Just make sure that it has all the safety certificates necessary to avoid putting your expensive laptop at risk.
Sometimes you simply have no other choice when the original is not available in a hurry and you need a replacement part on the spot. Just make sure that it says somewhere on the package that it is designed to work with your brand and model and you should be fine. Always buy from reputable sources such as high street shops. This way you can give a part back if it doesn’t work like advertised.
If you shop online, check reviews and reputation to make sure that you get value and good customer service in exchange for your hard earned cash. Always check the return policy plus the extra costs for package, handling and shipping. And remember to check the time it will take until the item arrives at your place. Whilst you might be able to wait for some, others are more urgent to have.
Getting a new laptop power cord falls certainly in the first category as your laptop will stop working soon if you can’t recharge the battery!
