My charger for my Nitro 5 is constantly cutting in and out and isn't always recognized. I'd like to purchase another charger but I'm unsure about which is the most suitable one for my requirements.

The model number is 517-52, the requirements on my current charger are:

Input: 100-240V - 1.9A

Output: 19.5V, 6.92A 135W

I know that there are chargers like this where it matches the input and watts, but it's 7.1A which is different to mine. So I'm wondering if it will work or not.

Forgive my lack of knowledge, I just want to be certain before spending money!

Thanks to anyone who can help me out

    It's a replacement battery, it may work but I would suggest you buy the original battery from a reputable retailer.

    >>>My charger for my Nitro 5 is constantly cutting in and out>>>

    Hold on!! This is normal behavior under heavy gaming or video editing power demands when the battery must help the 135watt charger meet the power load. At those times, the battery is actually discharging even though plugged in. Your particular model also will accept a higher power 180watt charger which will cut in and out less frequently or not at all depending on the load you're running. Google search the part nos. for the 180watt chargers for vendors who ship to your location. KP.1800H.002 or KP.18001.008. You can also google search an517-52 & 180 watt. These are commodity items so brand names aren't particularly useful. Cost should be about £50-60

    Interesting, the thing is it's cutting out if I shift my weight on my lap or move it ever so slightly. If I prop it up in a certain position it doesn't do it at all.

    Is there a way to lower the power demand when I'm just browsing the web so it wont cut out at all? Sorry I'm not super tech savvy.

    If you're just browsing with low power demands, shouldn't be cutting in and out. Sounds more like springy sliding contacts inside the laptop jack aren't pressing hard enough against the charger plug's outer barrel contact. Peer inside the laptop's charging jack with a torch to see if the sliders are visible. If they are, then maybe your charger's plug has a loose or partly broken connection in the wires leading to from the charger itself. Then a new charger is probably in order unless you're handy with a soldering iron.
