My ps3 powercord and my laptop powercord

so i was moving my desk around since i got a new ps3 (slim) and i noticed the ps3 was cramped in the corner and didn't have alot of air way. so i unplugged my laptop charger and the ps3 and they both fell behind my desk where i would later plug them back in. so i pick them both up and they both look the same except one had a white tag on it and looked a little older so i plugged it into my laptop and it worked., does it matter if i get them mixed up or does it need to be a certain one?

Im afraid to turn on my ps3 in fear that it might over run it with power and crash it.

  1. it should have the output voltage and amps written on the charger--i wouldnt swap them unless the output is the same
  2. here are the 2 cords and what they say on the side.

    300V vw-1 I-sheng csa ll81924 type bispt-2 105c 2x0.824mm(2)

    300v csa ll42379 type spt-2 2x0.824mm(2) .... i plugged this one into the laptop and it seems to work fine but i still havent started my ps3 up.
  3. If the PS3 has a built in power supply than it should be safe to use either cord.

    Figure 8 power cords are pretty generic and shouldn't cause any issues swapping them about, just check the fuse has the correct AMPS.
  5. Thanks, im not sure what a AMPS is[are], but i "think" i plugged them into the right ones and they aren't swapped and the ps3 works fine so thank you all for helping me.
