All three notebook power supply shops offer almost the same products.
Besides notebook power supplies, they also sell batteries, coolers, displays, digitizer pens and others at dumping prices.

Many spelling mistakes and translation errors on various pages.
Unrealisticly cheap prices.

The contact telephone number is not assigned.
No sales tax ID or an invalid sales tax ID is specified.
