    Hi, you just need an adapter with 19V, the right polarity and about 2A.
    there are many universial chargers online.

    If you want one for your car, I believe dealextreme.com has one with adjstable volt for 11$ (free freight).

    If anyone bought a generic 19v adapter, could they post the type? I'm looking at a Gateway laptop adapter that looks correct, but may be a crap shoot, if the polarities are prone to be different for various 19v laptops

    I noticed the internal pin is smaller than most of the 19V laptop supplies I've seen which means they won't make contact on the inner conductor.... right voltage, right external dimensions but a smaller internal pin.

    I'm also looking for a spare adapter. If anyone finds one that works, please share! Thanks.

    Edit: The answer was already here on these forums. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1675
