What should I keep in mind when looking for a replacement AC adapter for my laptop?

by on February 10, 2012

Q: I am in the process of purchasing a replacement ac adapter for my dell vostro 1710 laptop. The adapter comes in either PA-3, PA-10 or PA-12. What does this mean? Also, should I purchase a dell product or are Anker products advisable? Thank you for your answer.

Dell Vostro, model 1710, OS- XP
Currently have a 60 W power adapter and wish to purchase a 90W power adapter. Is this safe?
Input:100-240v
Output: 19.5v

    For best results I’d suggest purchasing directly from dell an AC adapter that Dell has stated is compatible with your laptop.
