    Look at the bottom of the laptop & check it says 20v 7.5A 150W

    It might be slightly different. Post what you see.

    Not cheap & will take a while (still looking).

    Have you checked the fuse in yours & the power cable?

    Thanks for sending this. It’s a shame it’s a long wait. Really struggling to find anything sooner. My dog chewed through the wire :/

    19.5v but shouldn't matter in this case. This should do it too. Unsure of the connector pin size.

    Which wire?

    Should be simple to repair and if it is the power cable that plugs into the socket then just replace that,

    Search for ASUS fa506 charger and they do show up, about £32, others are available and if you trawl through Amazon you might be able to find one on there but you will need to look at the small print.

    Thanks for sending the other charger, messaged seller to see if suitable pin size for my laptop. The wire he’s chewed through is the one connecting to the actual charger unit. The 3 pin plug is fine.

    You can still repair that bit. Its just flex with 2 wires running through. You just cut out the bit the dog chewed & join it back together. It is pretty simple to do.

    Even if you have to get rid of most of the cable you just buy a longer power lead.

    THIS.
    Unless I'm missing some information then this should be a very simple repair. Obviously much cheaper and quicker for you too

    I didn't know these existed (no pets), I was just googling out of boredom.

    Suggest avoid adaptervendor for multiple reasons.

    Not suitable without DC barrel adapter.

    Total £23.08 next day for combination of 150W 19.5V charger plus 7.4/5.0 - 6.0/3.7 DC barrel adapter/converter with comfort of Amazon fulfillment
    amazon.co.uk/dp/…H0/
    amazon.co.uk/dp/…1R/

    or direct replacement fulfilled Amazon next day £45
    amazon.co.uk/dp/…DS/

    and where all above options can be sourced cheaper at sacrifice of delivery time.

    If the chewed item has at least 30mm of undamaged cable from the DC barrel end and the power block end then a cable repair will likely be the most cost effective option. If not confident to sort yourself or via buddies / family, ask opinion at TV, PC or even possibly phone repair service centres.

    These look interesting, my only concern is the pin, I’m not sure if these have the pin that fits into my laptop.

    How did the dog break it, if its just the low voltage cable that was chewed, then it still "works" it just has a broken cable. And could be fixed by cutting out the bad section and soldering back together, but would require some expertise to do safely

    Tailored websearch of your chewed adapter part number indicates its DC barrel connector size as 6.0/3.7mm, example google.com/sea…3.7
    so you need a solution that terminates with a 6.0/3.7mm DC barrel.

    The stated DC barrel size of the suggested £16.09 charger is male 7.4/5.0mm.
    The DC barrel of the suggested £6.08 barrel converter cable is female 7.4/5.0mm with a male output of 6.0/3.7mm.

    The £45 direct replacement charger is stated to have 6.0/3.7mm barrel.

    Thanks for taking the time to look into this, means a lot.

    I’ll be buying the £45 one. Cheers

    When my sons Asus 19v charger plug (the laptop end) disintegrated, he found he could at least charge the battery using the 17v adapter from my Lenovo - the plug even fitted. That 2v difference meant that it can't power the laptop though. Been wondering what to do with it now he's got a more modern laptop. The old one even runs Windows 10. We seem to have lost the broken adapter and new ones are pricey.
