I was at one of the Asian Mega Computer Supply stores in Melbourne today to pick up a memory chip and whilst waiting for my number to be called I spotted a product similar to the KERIO sold at Dick Smiths in the display cabinets.

There were 2 versions/models - 19V 4.5A output and a 20V 6A output - from memory.

The following is just one web site where you can buy these things, however if you search the web a swag of suppliers in Aust pop up and its worth having a look at them as their prices vary significantly.

Amacrox Universal Mobile Notebook Power Adapter For Auto Use 65W 19V

I personally use/have used the KERIO for the past 6-7 years and have never had a problem.

The AMACROX is another option and a cheaper one.

Hi DD,

We ended up purchasing a Targus unit from D.S. because of the need to supply around 5 amps for the Acer laptop ........... time was also against us, so searching the web wasn't really an option.

Good information for those looking now, making sure of their power requirements when travelling with more than one machine.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

This is the first time I have seen one of these type of products other than the KERIO.

The other thing as I mentioned above, is that it comes in at least two models which I personally observed the display case. One in red/plack packaging and the other yellow/lime.

Also from time to time someone queries this issue for their laptops whilst traveling, so it's good to know that there a few products of this type out there.

Hi DD

All good from us here ................ it is something that we have researched for our own application, comments from close associates ......... and we all learn.

Some people do not research their machine's power requirements ........

and they can come unstuck from there.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

I've used a Targus from either DS or Repco for a number of years & always works well.

Jaycar have a selection of low cost 12V DC - DC invertors for lap tops and other low voltage equipment.
The one I have you can select output voltages from 12 to 24V.
My Toshiba for example requires a voltage of 19V.

ozjohn0,

We tried Jaycar for a power supply, none had the two adaptors we needed or the required amp output.

Cheers,
