Need an AC adapter for your netbook(s) and don’t feel like paying Dell, Acer, Asus, HP, Samsung, or Toshiba for a replacement or spare? Belkin UK has launched two new AC adapters that are designed to work on a variety of netbooks.
The Belkin F5L065uk 40W adapter will charge netbooks from all of the companies above, while the Belkin F5L070uk 90W adapter has 8 tips and adds Fujitsu and Sony to the mix. They cost £39.99 and £49.99 respectively in the UK, and should be available internationally soon.
Of course, there are still no universal standards for laptop power tips. So there’s no guarantee that either of these AC adapters will meet your needs. But if you happen to have more than one netbook (and only need to charge one at a time), a universal adapter might be a good investment… assuming you can find out if it works with your particular netbook models first.
