    The "normal" connection for my HP laptop charger is no longer working. I need to charge my laptop.

    I've found several products that ALMOST got me there. Today at Wal-mart (of all places!) I found a USB AC charger with a female USB "hole".

    Can I get a type A Male to type A male USB, connect this charger to my laptop, and get a SAFE charge?

    Likely, no. The USB circuitry is not input/output. With that said, there may be some laptop out there somewhere that is able to do this; however, it is again, likely no.
