Buying AC Adapter for Toshiba Satellite L505 - NEED HELP

by uncgirl13 / February 1, 2011 11:40 AM PST

My second toshiba laptop has the same trouble as the first - the power adapter is broken and only charges if the cord is arranged just right.

I'm buying a new power adapter, but the price on the Toshiba website is ridiculous. I have a Toshiba Satellite L505 S5966, and on the Toshiba website it only lists one adapter for the entire L505 series.

I'm looking at buying this power adapter on Amazon:

It says it will work for L505 - do you know if it actually will? It appears to be an actual Toshiba charger.

Did it work?

I know I'm 3 years too late, but just wondering if you bought a new adapter online and if it worked out for you? I'm currently facing the prospect of spending £30+ on a new adapter through Toshiba just 1.5 years after buying my laptop (Satellite C855).
