Found 4th Nov 2009
The charger I have is this exact one - eeepc.asus.com/uk/…n=2

Basiclaly a piece fits perfectly on the end of that to have a 3 Pin English Adapter. The adapter I have the top Pin has snapped off. I went in to CEX today to sell it and they told me I had to replace the Adapter. I dont need a new charger just the little plastic bit that fits exactly on the end of it. I need the actual Asus one not one that's bulky and doesnt fit onto it as they wont accept it without it, Please can someone help me find the peice i'm searching for it atm on the Asus website but only found the charger itself but not the Adapter peice on the end.... Any help will be rewarded in rep :]

could you not just change the cable from the adapter that plugs into the electric socket for an English cable, the cable fitted is a foreign ie Spanish cable, is it not?

Just buy a universal … Just buy a universal adapter.http://www.superetrader.co.uk/mains-charger-universal-ac-adapter-3pin-for-asus-eee-pc-701-p-3449.htmlMay be cheaper on Ebay. They're about £5 in Hong Kong.



They wont take in an universal adapter it needs to be the Official Asus Adapter. Theres also no point paying £10 for a new Charger as I dont need a new charger Plug it would take 3 weeks to arrive, But thanks for helping anyways :thumbsup:
