    Replacement Charger for UK Owners

    Just bought one of these

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ef=oss_product

    cheap and has a figure-of-eight socket rather than the original's hard wired power lead, so I replaced the standard wall plug with one of these

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/slimplug-com...wer-lead-99603

    which substantially the size of the whole package.

    I cut the non-uk plug off my lead and fitted a new plug. Works great.

    Yep, it's easy enough to replace or use an adapter but the point is that this brick has a detachable mains lead, meaning you only need to carry one for multiple devices. I can thoroughly recommend the folding plug, it's excellent not having to pack something with big metal spikes sticking out of it!

    DO you know if this one will work with the adam?
    HP COMPAQ MINI Laptop Power Supply 496813-001: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    It seems that it is required an output of 2.1A and the one you have is 1.58A,
    Does it work?

    Thanks
    EDIT: i read the 2.1 thing here:
    Available Options for buying Extra charger?

    If it's for HP mini it should be fine. I've been using mine every day with no problems, runs 'no hotter than the original.
