    Can anyone explain the different chargers

    Thank you- I found cords on ebay your link didn't seem to work. The bricks, it seem there is a 65w and a 36w version that was used for SP3, which one should the SP4 M3 version use or will it make no difference. I think the current one is 24w so probably the 36w version?
