Unlike may other online retailers who will only offer a short warranty, we offer a full 1 YEAR WARRANTY on all our products.
If your AC Adapter should develop a fault within the warranty period, just click here to report the fault. We'll then get back to you with an RA number and details of how to return the adapter. Once we receive the item back we'll send you a new one.
Can you send a new AC adapter out, before I send the old one back?
Unfortunately we do need to have the old one back first, before a new replacement can be sent out.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept Visa (including Visa Electron), Solo, Maestro (Switch), American Express and MasterCard. Our checkout provider is Sage Pay. You can also pay directly from a PayPal account.
Can I pay over the telephone?
Yes no problem. Please phone 01282 413355. Lines are open Mon - Fri 9.00am - 4.30pm. Please note, this is a sales line only and the sales team won't be able to help you with faults or compatability issues. Please read the rest of this FAQ for more information on how to deal with a fault or a compatibility issue.
Are you VAT registered so I can claim the VAT back?
We are registered for VAT in the UK, France and Germany. The correct VAT number and VAT amount will appear on the invoice. The invoice is sent by e-mail, normally about 2 days after ordering.
Do you give a VAT receipt with your products?
Yes, a VAT receipt will be e-mailed to your e-mail address within 48 hours of purchase.
Are the AC adapters you are selling made by the original manufacturer?
No, they are Power4Laptops branded replacement AC adapters designed to fit your particular make and model of laptop. If you are looking for a branded AC Adapter we recommend that you should only purchase it direct from your laptop manufacturers website, as there are many websites selling fakes. Any seller who advertises genuine ones for less than £30 are selling fakes, as the cheapest branded AC adapters cost at least that when you buy them in bulk wholesale.
Do your AC Adapters include the power cord / mains lead as well as the AC Adapter?
Yes, unlike many other suppliers we include a UK power cord with sealed UK Plug included in the price.
Can you supply me with the correct power cord for my country instead of the UK one?
We have power cords available for most countries. When you buy your AC Adapter we will supply you with the correct power cord for the country you have given us on the delivery address. The power cord will have a sealed plug. The only country we currently don't have power cords for is South Africa.
I just need to buy the power cord / mains lead. Do you sell it seperately?
At the moment we only sell them complete with AC adapters.
What happens if I buy an AC Adapter and it isn't compatible with my laptop?
Our compatability lists are very accurate but occassionally we do find an odd mistake that needs to be rectified. If this should happen just click here to report the compatibility issue. The information will be e-mailed to us straight away and a member of our customer support team will get back in touch with you as soon as possible with details of how to return the item so we can get it exchanged for the right model.
My AC adapter is getting hot, should I be worried?
No, it is quite normal for an AC Adapter to get hot. Just make sure you keep it in a well ventilated area. e.g. Not up to a radiator or anywhere where the adapter is enclosed on all sides.
Why is the input amps / amperage on the AC adapter you are advertising, different to my original one?
Don't worry if the input amperage is different to your original AC adapter. Your electricity supply will be able to deliver whatever input amperage is needed. It's really the output on an AC adapter that counts. That is what sends the correct power to the laptop.
Why is the output volts / voltage and amps / amperage on the AC adapter you are advertising, different to my original one?
It is OK for the voltage to be within 1 - 1.5 volts of the original. Also, don't worry if the amps are higher. Laptops only draw what amperage they need from an adapter so the amperage can be equal to or greater than the original. It is really better to have an adapter with a higher amperage then the adapter doesn't have to work as hard. If the voltage difference is more than 1.5 volts or the amperage is less than your original AC adapter please let us know.
Will your AC Adapters work in other countries besides the UK?
Yes, our AC Adapters will work in any country as they accept an input of 100 Volts right up to 240 Volts. The only thing you will need is either a travel adapter or a different mains lead as the plug on the mains lead provided with the unit is a UK 3 pin plug. The mains lead & travel adapters are very common so you should be able to purchase one locally.
Do you give discounts for bulk purchases?
Yes we can arrange a discount if you are buying more than 10 items at once. Please contact us with the items and quantity you wish to buy and a member of our customer support team will get back to you with a price.
