A friend's laptop power adapter became unusable, and she has a deadline tomorrow. She bought an iGo WallPower 120 at RadioShack. The salesman said it would work with her machine, but she is worried because the old adapter says it is 18.5V, 6.5 amps, and the new one says it is 15-24V, 8 amps. There doesn't seem to be much information online about this model. The manual isn't helping her, apparently. She's freaking out... the deadline can't move, and she's running out of battery juice.
Does anyone know if this thing will work with her machine? If it doesn't work, but she learns that by plugging it in, what is the worst thing that could happen?
