Hi, I'm a little confused about the different adapters available. I'm looking for the adapter & power cord for a Dell Latitude D-610. The model # is PA-1900-02D, & the Dell part # is 9T215. I can't find it on Dell's parts website but do have a chat log from their help dept. from some time ago, with a pretty ridiculous price quote. Now that I really need a new one, I was looking around on eBay to see what was available, & am confused by the ton of adapters, all of which are claimed to fit the D610, but have different numbers & wattages.
For example mine is 90W, output 4.62A... but I see some 65W ones supposedly also compatible. What's the difference? Some have different amperages too.
Then, this one clearly says "PA-10 family" but I see some PA-9 & PA-12s which also list the D610 as compatible. Again, what's the difference?
Then, there are the generic replacement adapters of which I'm a little leery.
How much does that "DP/N" number matter?
I do not want to mess up my Precious with the wrong adapter. I think I see the one I need, although from the seller's feedback they appear to be buying & reselling from somewhere. All the right numbers are in the description though.
Does anyone have any advice?
