Sometimes you need to charge your devices, sometimes various devices have incompatible plug-ins, and sometimes you need a better power supply and more energy. But knowing which computer adapters, extenders, and converters to choose isn't based only on the size of the plug. A widespread misconception is that if the plug fits into your device, you know you've got a good adapter or extender — this is a big mistake which might ultimately cost you your device. Apart from the plug physically fitting, you also need to make sure your adapter is compatible with your device. The simplest way to make sure your desired computer adapter or extender is compatible with your device is to check the description on the product.
Ensure the polarity of your adapters, extenders or converters is identical to that of your device and that the device rating has the same voltage and current. To do that, you might need to check the labels on your device. Voltage is marked with V and current with A. Ideally, you should have the same voltage and current on your computer and the extenders, converters or adapters you choose.
