How to identify a genuine dell power adapter and year of manufacture

Jump to solution

Hi, i am looking forward to buy a genuine used dell power adapter and i would like to know a little more about the product i'm buying. I would like to know how to the age of the product or the year of manufacture using the identifications sticked in it. For example, in the product of the picture, there is two id's

DP/N: 0NN236

and

CN-0NN236-48661-8BJ-7X7K-A01

But i can't find a place where i can check informations about this product i dell sites. Like in:

http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19?~ck=mn

The site doesn't accept theese id's. So how can i know information abou it?

Thanks

The first digit in the field of three is the year - 0 is 2010 (and will be 2020), 8 is 2008, then 2018, etc.

Whether it's genuine or not is usually best left to the vendor to answer.  The data code is the 8BJ - in this case the 8 is 2008, the B is November, and the J is the 19th of November.

Thank you very much for the answer. Unfortunately i can not trust the sellers here, so it would be nice to have a way to ensure if the adapter is genuine by the pictures. But being able to read the data code it's very important, since i'm looking for used adapters and i kind of know how to spot the counterfeit. Where do i find the meaning of each letter/number list? This picture i sent it's just an example, but if the adapter it's from 2010 and newer the code seems to be different. Like in theese two models, the second group of numbers before the rev it's just 3 numbers (first image) or 2 numbers and one letter (second image).
