4 Important Things to Remember When Buying Your Acer TravelMate 4010 AC Adapter Replacement

Anyone who relies on a laptop for their work knows the agony that replacing an Acer TravelMate 4010 AC Adapter can cause. It is not always possible to get the exact same replacement adapter that your laptop had. So that means you have to shop around – usually online - to find one that is the closest match to what you had and which – you hope – will work just as well or better than the one you had. There are four important things that one should look out for when buying a replacement adapter to make sure you get the right component.

Clearly detailed specifications. When buying the adapter the most important thing is to get the correct specifications. These include the output voltage which should ideally be within range of the original product. Thus a 19V battery charger can be replaced with an 18.5V or a 19.5V one. The output current, which must be either the same or greater than the original one that you had. The laptop is able to draw the correct amperage of current that it needs. If the Acer TravelMate 4010 adapter you get doesn’t have enough amperage it may not have enough power to run the laptop. Thus if your original AC power adapter had an output of 3.16Amps then a replacement one should have at least a minimum of the same Amperage. Whatever you buy must at the very least include these specifications.

Good packaging. The way your adapter package arrives is a clear indicator of the quality of what you have been supplied with. You need to especially watch out for the following:

1. Poor packaging that does not protect the adapter from the elements during travel

2. Packaging that is torn damaged or poor quality

3. No clear instructions for the use of the adapter or generally poorly written documentation

4. Lack of clear address, name and telephone/email contact for the manufacturer or supplier of the adapter

It must include all Acer TravelMate 4010 charger components. A replacement adapter should ideally replace all the adapter components, from the AC plug to the adapter itself and the connector plug. This is because one can never be too sure what caused the original adapter to cease working. It could have been caused by a fault or a short circuit in any of those three components. It therefore makes sense to replace all three with new ones just to be on the safe side. Also components made by different manufacturers may not always work well together. So replace all the components of the adapter and not just parts of it.

Warranty. A good manufacturer stands by the quality of whatever equipment they have produced. The longer the length of warranty period – and in most cases, a money-back guarantee – then the more confident you can be that the equipment you are buying will perform as it should. So if a manufacturer does not indicate any warranty period for their Acer TravelMate 4010 power supply or if it is sounds ridiculously short then that is a supplier you should steer clear of. A typical replacement adapter comes with a one year warranty.
