First of all, I am new here so sorry if I made any mistakes (including wrong box and everything).

My notebook charger recently died. I am looking to buy a new one but the problem is I have a 120W charger and they only sell 60W chargers locally (I can get a 120W model but it would be over-the-top expensive). I did some research and I found that chargers can be combined to get more power. I am looking to buy 2 identical 60W chargers and splice them together in order to get 120W charger (theoretically). The other problem is there might be a slight voltage difference between the two charger and that would resulted in an unwanted flow of electricity - which I could sove with a couple of diodes. Then another problem arise: There will be 60W (max) flowing through each diodes so choosing one would be quite a dilemma. I am looking at some Schottky's but the datasheets are quite perculiar (0.7V drop for a Schottky, wut) and it would be impractical. Can anyone shed some light on this subject? Are there any other problems that I should be concerned about?

TL;DR: Want to combine 2 60W chargers to get 120W. Need help choosing diodes. Any other problems?

Thanks in advance!
