Vizio laptop power supply...

i have a Vizio CN15-A5 laptop that's about 5 years old. It still functions great and does everything we need. The issue is the power supply cord is getting frayed pretty badly. It's only a matter of time before it's done. The issue I'm having is I can't find a replacement with the same specs anywhere online, I find plenty of OEM Vizio chargers...but all are 19v, 65w, 3.4a. The charger I have now is a 19v 130w, 6.7a charger. Now I can find plenty of those...but not with the same tip size, 3.0mm x 1.0mm. I've found a few with different tip sizes...and then thought about using an adapter...but even then the adapters aren't exactly the same size....close but not exact.

Thoughts? Should I try a Batteries Plus or some place like that? Any other online stores I might be missing...I feel like I've looked at all of them. Also looked at eBay. Again...lots of Vizio 65w chargers...but they all say not to use on laptops over 90w.

Back to Visio.

They are over at The power supply looks to be mythical so back to the maker.

Vizio sent me to three after-market part supply houses...two of which don't even carry PC parts...the third told me they don't have the part.

So no help there. I'll dig some more.

A decent tech

Can replace cords. In fact I've seen folk use this as the reason to learn how to solder, shrink wrap and more.
