I would just like to ask if I can still use my AC adapter/charger for my recently bought HP Pavilion because unfortunately, the head of the wire (the one that is being inserted in the notebook) was bitten by my puppy. The outer layer was removed but the inside is still intact. Upon checking, the charger is still working, but my worries is that if it is still safe to use it.
Your response is highly appreciated. Thank you.
