Purchased this as a replacement to my original charger that no longer works, plug it into my laptop and it begins to charge the battery and the oddest thing happens, the mouse touch pad goes crazy rendering the laptop unusable whilst being charged, when i unplug it the mouse instantly returns to normal. As comparison i tried another charger we had at the office and it works fine. A quick search on google for "touch pad goes crazy when plugged into AC" yields other who have same issues with cheaply manufactured parts. They say using the non OEM compatible ac adapters can even lead to completely cooking your laptop because they usually don't follow the manufactures requirements for power. I have a Acer TimelineX Aspire 1830t which the seller specifically lists as compatible, But this laptop requires a 19v, 2.15a, 40w, the power adapter they sent me is 19v, 3.42a, 65w... Obviously not even close to OEM specs but amps and wattage should be ok when outside guidelines as long as they arnt...
perfect. Thank you.
After a few months, the charger no longer works. Thankfully I found my orginal charger which I thought I had lost.
