I have an HP pavilion sleekbook 15 (the geforce gt 630m model), the original charger it came with stopped working due to voltage fluctuation at my house.

The voltage issue was resolved and I bought another charger but it also stopped working after sometime. I bought a third then and it suffered from the same fate.
I am guessing maybe it was due to high temperatures , since I game on the laptop and the chargers used to get quite hot.
I just bought my fourth charger now and fear its fuse too would blow , if I game.

What can I do to prevent that?

And shouldn't chargers be capable to withstand high temperatures?

Help will be appreciated on this issue.
p.s the chargers I bought weren't original.

Have you ever heard the definition of insanity??;-) Is the charger you bought(multiple times) the same rating? My guess is the replacements are of an inferior design or they have inflated the specifications. What was the original unit rated for - the replacement rated for?
