How do I connect the tip to the adapter cord?
After you have selected the correct tip for your laptop, connect

should be in line with the holes in the output cord. The tip
should be pushed firmly onto the cord until the tip and cord
meet and there is no gap.
What other laptops can I use this adapter for?
The Rocketfish Universal Power Adapter is compatible with
thousands of laptop models. A complete list of compatible
laptops can be viewed through the Tip Wizard at
www.rocketfishproducts.com.
Why doesn't the tip fit into my laptop?
If the tip does not appear to fit into your laptop you may have
selected the incorrect tip for your laptop. The tip should fit
snugly inside the DC input jack on the side or back of your
laptop. If the tip does not fit into the jack, do not force the tip.
Confirm you have selected the correct tip for your laptop by
referencing the included Tip Compatibility Guide or visiting the
Tip Wizard at www.rocketfishproducts.com. If you need
additional assistance please contact Rocketfish customer
service at (800) 620-2790.
Will using an incorrect tip damage my laptop?

you should only use the tip that is designated specifically for
your laptop. The correct tip can be identified by using the
online Tip Wizard at www.rocketfishproducts.com or by
locating your specific laptop in the included Tip Compatibility
Guide.
The use of an incorrect tip may cause performance issues,
including the inability to charge the internal battery or power

screen. It is also possible that the use of an incorrect tip could
damage your laptop. For these reasons, it is necessary to use the
tip designed specifically for your laptop.
The label on my Rocketfish adapter says DC OUTPUT:
16V/19V but my laptop is only 19V. Will the adapter
damage my laptop?
The 16V/19V rating refers to the capability of the adapter and it
signifies that it can safely provide power to laptops with
voltages within this range. After the correct tip has been
selected, the laptop and tip combination outputs the
appropriate voltage for your laptop. Please refer to the included
Tip Compatibility Guide or online Tip Wizard at
www.rocketfishproducts.com to find the correct tip for your
laptop.
My laptop is less than 90 watts (e.g. 65 watts). Will this
adapter damage my laptop?
No, using this power adapter will not damage your laptop. This
adapter only supplies as much power as required by the laptop,
up to a maximum of 90 watts.
My laptop is more than 90 watts (e.g. 120 watts). Will
this adapter damage my laptop?
This is a 90 watt adapter and it should NOT be used with laptops
that require more than 90 watts of power.
I notice that the adapter is warm when I use it. Is this a
problem?
During standard operation the adapter body may feel warm,
and this is normal. The adapter should always be placed in a
ventilated area in order to prevent over-heating.
How long is the cord from the wall to the laptop?
The AC input cord is 6 feet (172 cm) and the DC output cord is
3.8 feet (116 cm).

This equipment has been tested and found to comply within the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Canada ICES-003 statement
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.
1. Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and
maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio
interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropic ally
radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.
Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une
antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le
but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type
d'antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas
l'intensité nécessaire à l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante.
2. This equipment complies with IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled environment. This
equipment should be installed and operated with minimum distance 20cm between the radiator and your body.
"Cet équipement est conforme à l'exposition aux rayonnements IC limites établies pour un environnement non
contrôlé. Cet équipement doit être installé et utilisé avec un minimum de 20 cm de distance entre le radiateur et
votre corps."
