Hey guys.

 

 

 

I'm looking to buy a new laptop charger for my mum as she seems to have lost hers. I want to make sure I get the right one, so if somebody could point me in the direction of something that isn't going to blow up, that would be great.  Obviously looking for something brand new. 

 

 

 

Laptop Model is HP 15-bw076AU. Laptop Input is 19.5V 2.31A.

 

 

 

I've had a quick look on Trade Me, and found ones which I think are the correct voltage, however the listing doesn't say that the charger will be compatible with the laptop.

 

Should I/mum get in touch with Noel Leeming (Where we bought the laptop from) and see if they can source one? 

 

 

 

Thanks!

try partsurfer.hp.com to get the part number, and search TradeMe or EMPR NZ for that part number

We don't have the charger though so we can't find the part number?

You can enter the serial number of the laptop into the search field up the top and it will give you a list of part numbers for that machine.  :)

 

I mis-typed your model number the first time but now see your charger is part number 741553-850 

 

Official NZ parts supplier - https://store.emprgroup.co.nz/ProductSearch.aspx?searchterm=741553-850 

 

None on TradeMe but if you use this search https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/SearchResults.aspx?&cid=8747&searchType=&searchString=4.5mm+barrel and contact the sellers to ask if their chargers are compatible with your model you may find a cheaper one.

Take the laptop to the store to confirm it works with the replacement charger before purchasing.

 

I went in to PB Tech Penrose on Friday to get a replacement charger. The on-floor sales guy went in the back to find the 1 unit that was listed as in stock, but not on the shelves, and also allowed me to test the charger on a dead battery. A tech guy came out to see if its okay as well. Found that the problem was not with the charger, so did not purchase. Went back the next day to get a new laptop.
