Re: matchuing power cords to laptops.


I looked up the question and I found a lot of sites that just say don’t do it.  Here, however, is a detailed article that says you can use the same charger if it meets the laptops requirements.  That sounds correct to me but in your case, I would absolutely not just plug a charger into a laptop without knowing if it is compatible with the laptop’s requirements. 
Others may know if chargers have identifying information so you know which one matches which computer.  I would think they do.  Its probably time for sighted help.

Subject: [TechTalk] matchuing power cords to laptops.
Some how I have managed to separate the power cords from the laptops
that belong to them.

Does anyone know how to tell which belongs to what?

There is a Lenovo, an Asus and maybe another one involved.

If I plug a power cord into the computer it doesn't belong to, will that
mistake fry the computer.

Has this happened to anyone else?  Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
