Hi,

If you remove the battery and check the label on the notebook for the DC input rating, you should see the voltage and current specs there although it may not tell you that the center pin is positive which is usually indicated on the adapter.
Depending on your cpu, the G55VW may use 2 different wattage adapters although you shouldn't have any problems using the bigger wattage adapter if you don't mind the extra weight.

If you're interested, you may also want to contact your local ASUS support about purchasing the G55VW AC adapter.

I don't have the G55VW, but can give you information for my G75VW adapter if you're interested will also work for the G55VW.

Hope this helps.

@Dunedain, normally local service center can help you out on this.

alternatively you can shop here: http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=5113 (my adapter is this one)

the product specs of this adapter is:
Output: 19.5 V DC, 9.23 A, 180W
Input: 100~240 V AC, 50/60 Hz universal

i wonder why asus took such information out from the specifications in the product page of g55.

Huge tip thank you for that.. I removed the battery and the label on the notebook said: "Input +19V --- 9.5 A, 180W" and i understand that the Output on the charger is 19.5 V --- 9.23A, 180W . Can u guys tell me if these differences are normal and if they come like that from the factory? I know that 0.5V and 0.27A are not a huge difference but i wanna do things right! Thank you again in advance.

Are these charger specs from your original charger that arrived with your G55VW? Thank you for your answer!

I see that the 19.5 V --- 9.23A, 180W charger is the only one i can buy on Asus eStore so idk if the differences count! Just feel free to comment!
Thank you again in advance.

imo the right thing to do is to get it from asus service center or the asus online store. they provide you the good and genuine parts :)

i guess the difference is not significant.
