    I'm a happy TC1100 owner. I have 2 batteries and use my tablet all day. I've always charged both batteries in the tablet because the external charger was insanely expensive. Then I had a stroke of luck, and bought an external charger at a stock liquidation auction. It's great...except I had to buy 9 of the chargers as a bulk lot.

    So, now I'm looking for other TC1100 (or TC1000) owners who'd like to buy an external charger for their spare battery. Mods, I understand if this needs to be moved to the "For Sale" forum, but I hoped it could start here for a day or two so HP tablet owners would be aware of this opportunity.

    Here are the details:

    HP common battery charger
    Brand new in box, original HP product, part no: DF933A#ABG.

    External charger that keeps a spare battery fully charged and ready to swap into your laptop. Suits batteries used in these HP/Compaq laptop models:

    • NC4200
    • NC6000
    • W8000
    • NX5000
    • TC1100
    • NX9040

    Comes with a standard 65W AC adapter which can also be used as a spare power adapter with most HP notebooks and tablet PCs. This is exactly the same power adapter/cable that comes with most new HP laptops - so is a great way to get a spare power adapter PLUS external battery charger.

    The charger also includes a function to recalibrate older laptop batteries so they hold more charge.

    Photo is attached.

    Retail price for these charger and AC adapter kits is USD $200.00. In Europe they cost 200 euro. In Australia they cost AUD $200.00

    They are becoming very hard to get now, as they have been replaced by an even more expensive product which caters to additional laptop models.

    This new kit in the original sealed box is from an Australian reseller who went out of business.

    I can ship worldwide, so if you buy from outside Australia the only thing you need to get locally is a cloverleaf power cord (i.e. the cord that runs from the 65W adapter to your power outlet). These cords cost about USD $3.00 from any computer store. You can also get them on eBay (do a search for "laptop clover"). That mains power cord is the only difference between the versions of this kit sold in different countries around the world.

    I have a few of these and will eventually post them to eBay, but thought I'd try here first.


    My price is $60 Australian dollars, plus shipping.

    I prefer to transact via PayPal and will accept credit card payments.
