Netbooks are meant to be portable. But if your device fails to last the entire journey and the battery dies midway, there is no point in pulling out the traditional bulky chargers that do not offer enough portability. Add to this the prohibitive costs that will make it difficult to purchase a second charger to help you during travel alone.
Duracell has launched its new universal charger for netbooks that not only makes the charger portable, but at less than $50, is also quite affordable. This new portable charger is called the Duracell 40-Watt Universal Netbook Adapter and is priced at $49.99 in Wal-Mart, CompUSA besides several other online ecommerce portals.
To make the adapter universal, Duracell has offered four different plugging tips that automatically change the adapter voltage between 12V and 19V to suit the netbook being charged. Most of the popular netbooks from companies including Asus, Acer and Dell are supported.
