Mobile computer users can now power up and recharge their notebooks at a desk, in a car or on a plane with a new Dell combination power adapter introduced today.
Weighing a travel friendly 1.2 lbs., the adapter is compatible with all Latitude(tm) D-Family notebooks, most Inspiron(tm) notebooks and the Dell Precision(tm) M60 mobile workstation.(a)
It costs $99.00 and is the only combination AC/DC adapter that powers and charges a battery when connected to a Dell notebook, regardless of the power source. The 65W combination adapter also supports Dell’s ExpressCharge(tm) technology, which enables certain Dell notebook models to recharge batteries to 80 percent capacity in about an hour.(b)
Customers can configure new Dell notebooks with the combination power adapter at time of purchase, or order one for most existing notebooks. It will be available in the United States and Western Europe immediately, most of the Asia Pacific region by the end of January 2004 and in Eastern Europe by the end of February 2004. The adapter also connects to an optional peripheral powering system that recharges peripherals such as the Dell Axim, Dell DJ, and many other handhelds and cell phones. The availability of these peripheral charging accessories will vary by region.
