Lost, stolen, and physically damaged chargers are not covered under warranty and it is the laptop user's responsibility to purchase a new one. 

If your charger stops working, bring it to IT services and we will assess it. If it's not damaged we will arrange to have it replaced for you under warranty.

If the charger is too damaged or you have lost your charger, we have genuine Acer replacement chargers for sale for $60.

You can order them via the Canteen website/OnlineShop here.
