Duracell today announced the 40-Watt Universal Netbook AC Adapter (model DRACNB), an ideal accessory for today's popular mini-computers. The power adapter offers netbook owners a compact and lightweight spare adapter that meets their portability needs. It includes four interchangeable voltage controlling tips to work with hundreds of netbook makes and models including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP/Compaq, Lenovo and more.
The user-friendly tips automatically switch between 12V and 19V, depending on the netbook's power requirement, ensuring that the correct and safe amount of voltage is delivered to the device every time. Weighing in at just nine ounces, the Duracell adapter is among the lightest on the market — making it easy to slip into the pocket, purse or computer bag, mirroring the portability of the netbook itself. It gives users dependable charging capacity at home, the office, school or at the airport — anywhere equipped with a standard AC wall outlet. The adapter is also energy-efficient, drawing less than .5W of electricity when plugged into the wall but not being used to power a netbook.
The Duracell 40-Watt Universal Netbook Adapter is available now at Amazon.com and TigerDirect.com for $49.99 MSRP. It will be available at WalMart.com, CompUSA.com, CircuitCity.com, CDW.com, Buy.com, Newegg.com, PCMall.com, OnSale.com and Zones.com beginning in August.
