Dell are refusing to give me a replacemnt adapter free of charge using excuses such as it isn't a functionality faliure (well the power adapter is no longer functioning) and they can't replace it because of wear and tear.

This is what Dell says their current warranty is for their notebook computers. I'm not sure if they changed it over the last seven months?

"Portable computer batteries and AC adapters carry the lesser of either a 1-year limited warranty or the length of the limited warranty for the Dell computer with which the battery or AC adapter, as applicable, is shipped."

If your laptop had a one year warranty, then you should be covered. Go back and look at the paperwork Dell send you when you purchased the laptop.

Please read the terms & conditions of the warranty provided by Dell. This will clearly define what kind of failures covered under warranty and what is your entitlement. You can take Dell to task by following the terms & conditions of the warranty.

All the best!
