How to pick the best charger for your Microsoft tablet?

Each Microsoft tablet comes with a default charger. It matches the specific device. Fortunately, if anything happens to the default charger, it is really easy to replace it. Whether you lose the original charger or it breaks down, you will easily find a matching replacement. Examples of such products can be found in our online store.

When looking for a new charger for your MS tablet, you must first make sure that the model of your choice is 100% compatible with your device. To this end, please note the following parameters:

  • Power – expressed in watts – this information can be found underneath the tablet. Make sure the power of the new charger is not lower than the recommended value. It can always be higher, though.
  • Voltage–  as you may guess, this value is expressed in volts. It may differ by up to 1V from the one recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Plug – you need to see whether the charger will match the tablet port. Since there are various types of plugs used by a single manufacturer, it’s good to make sure the selected device will match your tablet.

Original charger or a replacement?

You may wonder whether a charger by another brand will be a match for the original one. It all depends on the brand you decide to go for. Cheap, poor-quality products are never a good idea – they won’t match the requirements of your tablet and what is more, they may pose a serious risk to safety. It’s different with chargers made by well-known brands such as Green Cell. These accessories are reliable and almost exactly the same as the original  Microsoft products.

While most chargers last approximately two years, Green Cell products may last up to 3 years , even when intensely used. It’s worth noting that these chargers offer greater safety than other devices.

This is because of premium quality LEDs and transistors. They are resistant to high temperatures and guarantee high performance. What is more, the additional mains filter controls the input voltage, and extra safeguards protect the device against overvoltage and short circuit. The large radiator effectively absorbs the heat, preventing the charger from overheating, which in turn makes it last longer, and the network cable made of premium materials is highly resistant to mechanical damage.

As you can see, a replacement charger may offer better performance than the original Microsoft product.
