90W 9T215 doesn't charge E6400

That's right. So don't buy those P/N 9T215 generic replacements that claim to be Dell Latitude E6400 compatible. I tested original 9T215 on E6400s (not on purpose) and it just doesn't charge. BIOS says it's unknown adapter. Computer actually runs on A/C but battery doesn't get charged. Why? There must be love between the two for it to charge? It's enough to power the machine, it must be enough to juice up the battery. That's just annoying!
