m15 R1, charger, are these compatible?

Hi, I bought a second charger for my daughters Alienware M15 so she can leave one at her desk and have the other for travel, the one I ended up receiving looks identical and has the same power output but different model and part numbers.  The seller says it will work fine, but wanted to confirm before trying it.  If it is compatible, what is the difference between them?

The original is part number LA180PM180, the new one is DA180PM111.  Photos below.

There are a number of compatible chargers. This page at Parts-People shows a 180W charger and if you look at the compatible listing in the item description you will see both of the chargers that you have pictured.

They are both matching voltage, current output, and polarity.  They will work the same.  Liteon and Delta are OEM power supply makers for Dell.

Thank you both for the confirmation, I thought that was the case but wanted to double check.
