Overloading protection

  TeamChris1981 12:31 17 Aug 05

I have a power supply unit for my notebook/laptop PC. It has a unit and a power cord, and on the box it say it has overload protection. Which got me thinking what it means and what does it do? Can you actually overload the unit and if so how would you go about repairing it?
Thank You

This would be protection from a mains overload incase there was a surge in your electricity supply.You do not need to worry it has built in protection to prevent it being overloaded

Overload protection in laptop power supply units is ncase of shorts in the laptop etc.

It is usually done by a thermal swith (more current greater heat switch opens) will reset itself as it cools.
