The Dell PA-16 Adapter
The PA-16 family of adapters are suitable for a range of Dell notebooks. To be sure it's the right one for you, make sure your notebook model is listed below:

Why You Should Avoid Compatibles
Firstly, we would like to state that some respectable third-party manufacturers do make good quality AC adapters. The problems arise with adapters that are made by no-name and obscure brands. You can often see them on the usual online marketplaces going for just a few bucks.
While they may seem like a bargain, you only get what you pay for. These products can only be sold so cheaply because they're made to much lower quality standards. This means they often fail quite quickly. Good quality AC adapters also have additional components to ensure a reliable flow of power to the notebook, while cheap compatibles skip on this to cut costs.
In extreme cases, manufacturers cut so many corners that their products don't even meet basic safety standards. This can happen even when a product carries the usual certifications, because manufacturers can submit a product for certification and then switch to a cut-down version for production.
All these problems can be avoided by sticking with an official Dell PA-16 adapter. If you do get a compatible adapter, though, make sure it's from a brand you recognize.
Looking for Other Notebook Components?
Finding reasonably priced parts for notebooks can be a challenge, but we're a one-stop shop for all your component needs. We have parts for all the popular notebook brands, such as DELL, HP/Compaq, and IBM/Lenovo.
For example, we stock a range of batteries for countless notebooks. Over time, notebook batteries give less and less battery life, so buying a new one can restore the battery life to its original level. What's more, if you bought a notebook with a lower capacity battery, you can sometimes upgrade to a higher capacity battery for as much as 50% more battery life.
Batteries and AC adapters aren't the only things that go wrong with notebooks. Replacement keyboards and DVD drives are also available, and they're relatively easier to fit yourself.
In addition to a new Dell PA-16 adapter, we also have a range of useful peripherals. For example, an auto/air adapter can enable you to charge or use your laptop in your vehicle or even while on an airplane. A docking station, meanwhile, can be very convenient for the office.
