Most notebook users do not care about the weight of the charger, although you have to carry it with you if you want to use your computer all day long. Manufacturers like to advertise new models of laptops weighing just a kilogram. Unfortunately, they do not mention how much the set with a charger weigh. Even an Ultrabook weighs almost 0.5 kg and a notebook gamer weighs 1.5-2 kg. Fortunately, there is a solution for this.
How to reduce weight?
Often the simplest solutions to serious problems are the best. This is also the case here. If you do not want to carry a heavy and large charger between your workplace or school and your home, it is best to buy a second one. This way, you will get rid of unnecessary kilograms and never forget to take it with you again. There is a misconception that a suitable power supply for your notebook can only be obtained from the manufacturer. However, this is not true. There are two types of replacement power supplies on the market: universal and dedicated. Dedicated versions are specially manufactured for a given model or series of laptops. They guarantee compatibility with a specific notebook and also provide a high level of quality that is expected from the original charger. Moreover, they are often smaller and thus lighter, and the product itself is definitely cheaper. On the safety side, too, there is no cause for concern. Akyga® guarantees protection against surges, overloads, overheating and short circuits. What's more, similarly to the factory-made adapters for notebooks, Akyga® power supplies are covered by a 2-year warranty.
You should not be afraid of the difficulty of choice either. Akyga® provides great help in this. A specially created compatibility search engine helps you to make choices in a friendly way in several ways. On the one hand, you can use the search engine by entering the appropriate parameters (you can read them on the sticker of the factory adapter). The second method is to filter by brand and model of the laptop. At the end, you can enter a specific number of the type of notebook, so that you can find out exactly what kind of Akyga® charger you need from a huge database.
