Windows 7: Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00£

Best portable Laptop charger out there for under 70.00£

Well herro there :3, Anyways YO 8D

Im looking about for a portable charger for my TabletPC (Fujitsu Lifebook T4215) and yeah i know it's old but It works pretty well i will say abeit one big problem it has

It has HORRIFIC Battery life as in i can charge it to the full 4 bars of it's battery and it'll be smoked in about 15-20 mins, I've also got the power settings to near low (The CPU's clocking at 1GHZ now rather than 2GHZ (it's a core2duo t7200 btw) and the screens as dim as can be (I like my screens dim since i love the dark ^^) and since im wanting to travel about with it to my art studio that will kind of not suffice, and also i want to use it for enjoyment like while traveling and such.

So effectively the device i kinda want is to say a portable powerstation, And it'd be cool if it lasted upto per say 3 1/2 hours + from fully charged to near empty And as optionals too it could support nya other two laptops (Lenovo G550 and Acer Aspire 5742) And wouldn't cost me a fortune, 70£ would be pretty good, But i also want quality too as this is likely to have some usage to it too.

I don't want the answer "Oh just buy a new tablet" cause i've had that thrown at me and i Don't want to invest money into ANOTHER tablet when i only just bought this one a number of months ago ^^; X),

As said the rest of it's good just not that end, And i'd also rather not take the thing with getting a new battery for it, so Pretty much as the title states, Best portable charger for under or about 70£ ^w^ thanks CX 8D

Hi there

Another possibly better option is to get an AC inverter which you can run from a Car battery -- 12 V DC input ---220 V AC output (as you said 70 GBP I assume UK so electricity supply there (when it's actually working !!) like rest of W/N/E Europe is 220 V not 120 V). This way you can charge the laptop while driving , use the laptop "out in the field" ON MAINS !! and being a 220 V AC you could plug in two other laptops at the same time - I wouldn't actually USE 3 laptops at the same time though on the inverter as you mighty find the Car battery would run down fairly quickly.

(Charging 2 and using one would be fine though).

Here are a load of 150 W one's -- from around 12 GBP to 40 GBP well under your budget --- and to use just plug the inverter into the car cigar lighter socket and your laptop into the standard AC outlet.

Enc pic as well as a link since some people might not know what an "Inverter" is given the lack of any sort of Engineering knowledge these days in Schools etc.

This is the one I use the BESTEK (pic shown) -- as it's 300 W output and even has 2 USB slots for charging USB devices like mobile phones which charge via USB slot (not USB mini==>micro adapters are also available). I have a decent battery in my car so the 300W is fine for me.

Costs 25 GBP and I use a 3 pin ==> European 2 pin adapter as the UK has its 3 pin rather non standard system.

For more choiceslook at the link 12v car inverter.

Much more flexible since 150 W will EASILY CHARGE 3 laptops while running one as well.


( If you don't have a car then just get a separate 12 V car battery which you could charge at home and connect it to the inverter with a pair of Crocodile clips -- but I wouldn't imagine taking a Car battery on a Bus and charging a laptop while on the vehicle !! -- in any case any sort of Power reservoir that needs what you want won't be easily portable so I assume you have a car or a colleague who has one).

One of my part time gigs is shooting Nature photography in remote places -- power isn't usually available in these places so the Inverter is a perfect solution for me too.

Laptop charger
I have a laptop in which the charger 'pin' (to plug into laptop) seems bad. It's a bit loose when I wiggle it and when in the laptop, the cord has to be positioned just right for it to charge (it seems to lean the pin to where it can charge). I'm not sure if it's the charger or the port. The...

Can HP charger be used for Gateway laptop?
My roommate's large 17.3" Gateway NV9 laptop had its charger die (no power light) so he insists he can use my smaller 10-year-old HP 510's charger with no problems. I'm guessing his uses more power than mine so could burn out or otherwise mess up my charger. What do you think? The specs are...
