Need to buy a power adapter for Chromebook c720. Can someone suggest? I see so many differences in pin and so not able to identify the correct fit adapter. I did buy one adapter from acer website but its not fitting and acer not taking back the adaptor as well, I lost almost 1k money for the same.

    There are two AC adapters Acer used on the C720, but they both meet the same spec:
    KP.06503.012 ADAPTER 65W 19V 3-PIN BLACK TIP - 1.1X3.0X7.5 LITE-ON PA-1650-80AL LF BLACK, MEET CHINA 5KM
    KP.0650H.006 ADAPTER 65W 19V 3-PIN YELLOW TIP - 1.1X3.0X7.5 CHICONY A065R094L LF BLACK WITH ACER LOGO
    Search on the part numbers (they start with KP for these) and you should find a number of them.

    Thanks for the response. I see first one supports only Compatible with aspire models but not C720 chrome book which need 1mm pin as per my research. Need this in India. 2nd link doesnot show much of the items but looks its 1.1 mm pin.

    They both have a 1.1mm hole in the center of the barrel in order for the 1mm pin in the socket to fit. The spring at the side of the socket pushes sideways on the barrel, causing good contact with the center pin and the outer ground. If the pin and hole were both the same size we'd have them seizing up all the time. :)
