I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop, that is US 120V and has a 65W battery. I'd like to know if there is a laptop power adapter that has the capability of plugging the 120V laptop directly into a 240V wall socket in the UK without needing an additional converter adapter. In other words, I'm looking to basically replace the 120V power brick/plug with a 240V one that can convert to 120V already. Thanks for any help or tips you can give me on this.
Also, double check the rating of the existing power pack. For some time manufacturers have used worldwide capable SMPS bricks with 100 - 240V ratings, both my older Compaq and newer HP have this. All I would need is an IEC mains lead with the correct local plug, or a plug adapter.
If yours really is 120V only, then andrewww's suggestion is the way to go.
