How Much Does a Power Adapter Cost?

 
average costMedium: Usually $20-$50high costHigh: Kits Cost $50-$100
post Post  

Power adapters are the cords used to recharge electronic devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. Power adapters can be plugged in to either a wall outlet with an AC adapter or can be plugged into another electronic device through a USB connection.

Typical costs:

  • PC laptop manufacturers typically sell parts like AC adapters to replace lost, stolen or broken models. Generally, power adapters sold through the manufacturer cost about $20-$50.
  • Laptop power adapter kits that work with most PC models cost $50-$100l. Unlike the ones made by the manufacturers, many come with an assortment of attachments that fit a variety of PC power ports. For example, RocketFish[1] makes a variety of power adapters that cost $50-$80.
  • Apple laptop power adapters[2] cost $79. Apple power adapters[3] for iPhones, iPads and iPods cost $19.
  • Power adapters for Android and Windows phones and tablets are available through the manufacturers, typically for $20-$60. For example, Samsung sells phone chargers[4] for $35-$50.
What should be included:
  • The power adapter should come with a connection that allows it to charge electronic devices from the wall outlet.
Discounts:
  • Apple is offering $10 rebates on chargers following an accident in China.
  • Power adapters not made by the manufacturer are generally available for $10-$20 less than those made by the manufacturer, but can be prone to problems.
Shopping for a power adapter:
  • A laptop power adapter buying guide[5] is posted on eBay.
