How can I charge laptop battery when DC jack is broken inside? Can I buy a separate AC-DC charger for laptop batteries?
Kid tripped over HP laptop AC cord and snapped the DC jack inside. I can't afford $$$ to send off to repair, taking apart & soldering is too much involvement for a 5-year-old 40 gig hard drive laptop. But doesn't anyone sell a charger that I could pull out the battery and charge it up and then re-install it, maybe have two and switch them in and out? laptop would be OK for Grandma, so I hate to throw it away. Right now it is dead, no way to charge it and the AC won't work since the DC jack is broken. Any ideas?
