    2nd Charger now not working!

    Is there a fault with the chargers? I just bought a replacement charger for £30 from ASUS only to have it not work 2 weeks after purchase.

    Am I expected to fork out more money on another one?

    Come on!

    Seriously P.O with this situation. We need a statement from ASUS about the chargers and an offer of free replacements. And no it is not easy to just call them up. I am working abroad in India so would not even know where to call .....

    Yea there is a problem with them, but many people have worked around it by sealing the charger in a zipbag and putting it in the freezer for 30 mins

    The issue seems to be an overheat protection cutout inside the charger which the freezer seems to reset.

    My charger died a while back, so I ended up getting this Dynex set on eBay for I think like 5$ shipped... LONG cords have been great, charges slightly slower than the standard cable because it's only 12v, but works great!

    To the OP, does the charger work with other 5 V USB devices (such as a phone)?

    If not, try the freezer trick and see if that works.

    Beyond that, you may have to resort to a slow 5 VDC trickle charge from a USB charger or find another 12-15 VDC power source.

    There is a very simple fix for the charger it takes less than a minute and anyone can do it. For the Fix go to Youtube.com, then search OOnatedogg and click on his asus charger fix video.. Good Luck hope it helps. I had the same problem and thats how i fixed it. I went through 5 charger including one that was sent from asus after a 3 week waiting period.
