Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100-3357 Notebook ?

Concerning the battery chargers for 5100 and 5315...I had the Amps backwards...5100 is 4.74A and the 5315 is 3.42A..so the question now is: can i use the 4.74A charger to charge the 5315 lap top (which is 3.42A) is that too many amps?

Answers :

Hi there.
You must only use power supplies which are specific to that particular laptop, even if you have a power supply of the same voltage but the amps are different it may power the machine but in my experience they have blown the PB (power board) which has resulted in no charge at all right down to the motherboard itself being blown.
I suggest you use the power supply specific to that laptop.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
