Replacement Power adapter info

Postby tsdguy » Tue Mar 04, 2008 9:27 pm

If anyone is looking for replacement AC adapters, a good source is IBM adapters. Turns out many of the adapters have the proper connector and voltage to charge and operate the XO. I have a Thinkpad 600E adapter that works along with an X40 adapter. It looks like most of the TP adapters work.

They are a bit short so the connection is just made but it's positive.

The connector used has only recently been changed when Lenovo took over and now it's too large in diameter to fit.

IBM adapters are everywhere on eBay and IBM parts websites - should only cost $10 or $15.

(Thanks for the original idea to culseg)
