Hello everyone,
I need some advice regarding changing the tip/head of my hp 200w charger. The tip has a size of 4.5 * 3.0mm and has a needle inside. I have found some similar charger heads online and I am planning to order one and manually replace the tip by cutting the wires of the old one and connecting them to the new tip wires. (You can see the ones I found online in the attached images).
Is this a good idea or I should buy a new charger?

Since the charger needs replacement, you will need additional support from our internal teams in HP. For that to happen, we will give you additional instructions/information via Private Message.
