The Compaq CQ61 laptop comes with its own power cord. But if you purchased the laptop used, the power cord may not be included. You can, however, use the CQ61 laptop even if you do not have the original power cord. You can use a battery charger to keep the battery on the laptop fully charged, or connect a universal charger to keep your laptop running smoothly.
