Default Notebook manufacturers want standard power bricks

ONE OF THE MOST expensive parts to replace for your notebook besides the battery is the humble power brick. If you've ever had to buy a replacement power adapter for your notebook, you'll know that replacement units from the manufacturers can cost in excess of $100 if you're unlucky, especially if your notebook isn't a current model. However, it looks like the notebook manufacturers – well at least the ones in Taiwan – are looking at making a standard for power adapters.

Digitimes is reporting that Acer, Asus, Quanta, Compal, Wistron, Pegatron and Inventec are all interested in developing a standard for notebook power adapters together with IEEE. We’re of course quite some ways away from that standard becoming reality, but the fact that something like this is even being considered is a great step forward.
