andrewNZ: This appears to only be the AC cord (wall to figure 8 connector) for chargers with a removable AC cable, not the whole charger.

That's both reasonable and disappointing at the same time.

 

 

 

the only faulty part of the AC cord.  It has poor strain relief.

 

It’s a common industry problem.  Many OEMS have had similar issue with printers and laptops.

 

 

 

If your DC power adapter has failed, then can be replaced under warranty

So i tried to call their NZ 0800 number and it has not been setup correctly on their end so now don't really know what to do as their online chat could not help me either.

 

I have now sent them a message on twitter

 

 

 

 

if you're stuck I'll happily donate the $3 - $4 to you so you can buy a new AC figure of 8 power cord

I can't remember what options I selected but it took me a couple of tries to get through to the operator. It was smooth sailing thereafter.

So is it just a standard AC figure 8 cord? 

 

So i can just buy this?
