Real quick, and probably simple, question...

The earth pin broke off the GF's laptop charger so I ordered a replacement that is apparently the same. Now I know nothing about this so I just wanted to check before we use it.

The polarity symbols are the same, but look different, does that mean anything?

Cheers.

That's what I thought / was hoping what someone would say. Cheers.

Yep, I agree - looks ok to me too - the polarity symbol still shows it as pin positive. Other specs are in line too.

Nice one chaps. I figured it was right, but I'd rather not chance it without checking. Thanks both.
