used manufacture charger

windows 10 laptop
asus
In this question I do not want a universal charger.
I want the actual charger that asus made.

If the new version is $100, then I would like to save money and find a used version.

I would venture because universal chargers usually don't spoof the manufacturer's 2-wire protocol well enough to convince the laptop that this particular unit is an authentic full power charger.  The laptop then (at best) says "OK, I'll accept a charge from you, but only at a significantly reduced rate" or (at worst) won't accept a charge at all.  Dell in particular is well known for this.

You can very likely get the exact manufacturer's replacement on eBay. I would look there if you wish to get a used one. Insist on right of return if dead on arrival.
