I've decided the power cord for my Dell Inspiron 1501 is crapping out. Are there any aftermarket ones that are reliable? I think Dell is going to cost a fortune.

Targus makes universal laptop power adapters that can be purchased at retailers like WalMart and OfficeMax. However, these cost more than the adapter from Dell (the Targus adapters start at $99).

The Dell adapter is $65 from their online store.

As I posted here before, my fiancee's old laptop stopped charging with the old power cord. We bought her a new laptop, but for shits and giggles I ordered one of the $9.20 cords from eBay. Charges the old one fine, and super cheap to boot.

I might give it a shot. Do you know what brand yours was?

Her laptop is a Toshiba brand and the cord is just a generic I think. If you want the brand of that, I can check when I get home. The only thing I have noticed is the thing does get pretty hot, so if you keep it on carpet, that could be a concern. I think it gets a bit hotter than the stock one but I didn't have the stock one around to compare to.

I don't know if Dell has changed but most third party universal adapters will not charge the battery. You will be able to run the laptop off of A/C though/

The powerbrick on my Toshiba laptop stopped charging about 18 months ago. I ended up getting a replacement through Mobile Tech Power (http://www.mobiletechpower.com/store/main.aspx)
