I would like to ask anyone with electrical knowledge
My Acer Laptop mains lead is broken the Spec is :
Input 100-240v ~50 -60Hz 1.6A
Output 19v - 3.42A.
65 W
----------------------------
I have an extra lead and was wondering if it is compatable to my Acer laptop
Input 200-240v ~. 50-60Hz 0.6A
Output 5v ~ 3.0A
15 W
I don't want to fry my Laptop!
but the original acer lead is the equivalent $100 to buy in computer shop in the UK
thanks for any help.

It will not work and the most important is that it can give only 5V, but computers need 19V-24V (by default is 19.5V).
And also, it is only 5W, but is needed 15W at least, it means, even if gives 19V, the  charging time will be 3 times longer.
So, most important is voltage and maximum power.
