After reading some of the horror stories, I ordered this charger\adapter, (sold as and labeled as
genuine Dell) in hopes that it might be of better quality than one of the knockoffs. I thought
it was resonably priced and two day delivery was assured.
It arrived shortly as promised.
Installed a new battery and hooked the charger up to my laptop and plugged it into the AC. The
indicator light on the charger/adapter did not light up. Fortunately I had another power cord of
the same configuration from the previous (incorrect output) charger/adapter which was sold to me
with this used computer. Changing the power cord fixed the fault and the light on the adapter
lit up and the battery indicates that it is charging.
Upon checking the faulty power cord I found no continuity between the grounded current carrying
conductor tine and it's related socket. Maybe this explains some of the complaints about some power cord plugs becoming very hot. If the wiring connection between the cord and the tine is of poor quality, it could cause high resistance resulting in high temperatures, melting, and possible failure. If you have this overheating problem with a power cord plug, you could replace it with a standard
3 prong plug from the hardware store. Make sure your wiring connections are correct and that
they are clean and tight. If you are not handy, you could probably find a similiar power supply
cord at your nearest office supply store.
The charger is under maximum load when charging a new or exhausted battery, so it does get warm.
Some have complained that some chargers get too hot to touch. To be safer you could lay/suspend the charger over/in a fireproof ceramic bowl (fireking) so that air can circulate around the charger to keep it a little cooler. In addition, if necessary, a small fan could be used to help
cool the charger.
The Dell charger became only slightly warm to the touch and had fully charged the new battery
100% in less than two hours. Power indicator says it should be good for about 3.5 hours use.
Discharged the battery to near exhaustion as prescribed by the battery manufacturer. Recharged
again in less than 2 hours. And repeated to complete three cycles of charging/discharging per
instructions that came with the battery.
So far, so good.
My dog decided to chew on my laptop's power cord, ruining it. I looked around online and I found a good deal for this laptop charger and cord so I decided to buy two. Just in case the cord gets chewed on again. I am happy with the performance of this power adapter as 90 watts seems to charge the battery a lot faster than a 65 watt adapter would have. I have had this adapter for four years and I have never had a problem. I would defiantly buy it again if needed.
..and they are correct.. the adapter will power the Inspiron as long as it's plugged in but it will NOT charge the battery. This is FALSE advertising as they actually list the 1545 as being supported. I'm hoping this warning will save you a big headache.
One additional note: The back of my actual Dell Adapter lists it as being in the PA21 family. This incompatible one list it as being PA10. Perhaps this is the key metric to determine compatibility.
It is DELL branded and fully functional. My only complaint is that the DC plug doesn't fit very snugly.
I did initially think the brick was bad as it just flashed it's light when I plugged it into the laptop. But then I figured the laptop was probably ready for recycling due to possible damage from the previous brick and this one was likely just detecting a charging fault in the laptop. I removed the battery, cleaned the terminals, and replaced it. The unit powered on. It even said it charged the battery, even though the battery is actually shot.
Anyway, the brick powers the laptop with or without the battery in place. The laptop was worth the $20 the brick cost, but it isn't worth the $50 or $60 for a new battery too. They'll just have to use it plugged in, and shut it down before moving it.
