I needed a replacement chord for my laptop and Overstock.com delivered to me again. It was perfect, fast and affordable. Thanks Overstock.com. I always have a great experience here at O.co and will continue to give them my business because of the quality and value.
I purchased this laptop charger as a replacement for the original OEM charger that broke. I have a few other Dell chargers that will keep the laptop running as long as it is plugged-in, but I get the message "Plugged in, but not charging" with those other Dell power cords. So, the battery never actually charges and you cannot use it unless it's plugged in (pretty much making the laptop a desktop PC and non-mobile). With this cord I still get the "Plugged in, not charging" message. Otherwise, the cord works and is fine. It does have the hexagon/octagon shape that the Dell 1545 requires which is good.
I have been buying the $10 adapters. They last about three months and get very hot and loose connection. This adapter does not get hot and it really does have a three prong ac plug. Well made. I have had it a week and should work a long time for me. Cheap adapters maybe too cheap. I use this adapter on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. This is a PA-12 adapter. This is part of the model number. The description should list the PA-12.
I can tell the quality isn't the same as the one I originally got with my laptop, but I can't complain because this one was only $**. Haven't used it too much, but was just happy it fit my laptop and worked. I have a Sony Vaio (I don't know the model number) but it is white on the outside with a black keyboard and black inner casing.
