ridge on the inside of the tip aligns properly with the groove
in the output cable connector. Additionally, the pins on the

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?
The tips are designed to be used with specific laptops and so
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 the laptop, or the display of an error message on the
laptop 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 device.
The label on my Rocketfish adapter says DC
OUTPUT: 15-20V but my laptop is only 19V.
Will the adapter damage my laptop?
The 15-20V rating refers to the capability of the adapter and
it signifies that it can safely provide power to laptops with
voltages within this range. Once the correct tip has been
selected, the laptop and tip combination will output 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.

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.
If I leave the adapter plugged in when I'm not
using it does it waste energy?
This Rocketfish adapter meets EnergyStar and CEC IV energy
requirements which means it is an energy-efficient product
designed to conserve power. When the adapter is plugged in
and not being used it draws less than 0.5W of power.
