and will i need the other half of it, ( the mains cable?) just to be sure?

Whoever told you that buying online is dodgy doesn't know what they're talking about. Buying from Amazon is very safe, and they have a very good returns policy if your item doesn't work.

Amazon are all good. Ebay is ok as long as you read the customer reviews.

You might get it a bit quicker from a brick and mortar store, but you'll also pay more. As you have a site on Amazon I don't see why you would question buying from there. Your choice. Good luck.

Come to think of it.

If you take a picture for me of the whole cable especially a close up of the connection that goes into the the laptop I might actually have one.
