Laptop "plug" upgrade/replacement question.? Answered
I have an Asus K53SV Laptop and the power jack is busted, like the internal connections are loose. I'm looking to upgrade it to a panel-mount one that's screwed into the case instead mounted to the mother-board.
How do I find out which kind to order online? It's not like I can go to the barrel-jack store with my laptop brick and see which one fits. Is there a standard sizing scheme or something? I couldn't find one.
Also, is there a MagSafe like system for this? I'd love to have it come apart if someone trips over the cord (again... that's why it's broken now... >.<)
