    Powered up, but...

    I had to purchase this generic power cable for my laptop when we arrived at our destination and I realized I had forgotten to pack the one that came with my laptop. The Best Buy sales person I spoke to said that it would power up my Dell laptop, but wouldn't charge the battery as Dell had made some hardware changes that required their own power cable to charge the battery., I didn't think that would be a problem since I usually leave my laptop plugged in anyway. However, when I actually started using the generic, my CPU jumped to 100% just about all the time and my laptop ran excruciatingly slow. I initially thought that there as a problem with the laptop itself and actually did a reinstall of my Windows 10 on the laptop, all to no avail. I managed to get the work I needed to do done, though it was slow and agonizing. When we returned home, it was my intent to take the laptop to the Best Buy Geek Squad and have them do a thorough check up of the laptop. But when we got home, I plugged in my original power cord and lo-and-behold, things started working perfectly. I did plug in the generic to check and sure enough CPU usage jumped to 100% and things crawled. Plugged back in the Dell power cord and things went back to normal. So if you're running a Dell, beware that you may end up with the same issues I had.

    Just Don't trust the Packaging/Label

    I bought this charger for my HP pavilion dv6. I was aware of the fact that, all chargers are not same and it varies according to company model no and all. Hence on safe side, I went to purchase charger with my laptop at store. Unfortunately, they didn;t have HP Charger in stock so sales rep, showed me this product and mentioned that it's an universal charger and it will work with your laptop. I bought that, as soon as I plugged in, within few mins I had "Dotted Line" on my screen. ( Permanent Damage to my laptop) . I talked to Best buy about that , according to them it's a product fault and I had to contact Insignia. I contacted Insignia, after few days of investigation they came to conclusion that although it's damage due to charger, my laptop is not under their compatible product list..!! hence they didn't take the responsibility of the damage neither Best buy. It might be compatible with your product. But when it says on the packaging that it will work 100% guarantee, I am like..Well it didn't. Just make sure before you plugged in..!

    This is not the adaptor you're looking for...

    My dear daughter, a working college student, left her laptop charging cable half way across the state, when she returned home she realized the catastrophe, a laptop on 2% with a paper that needed to be turned in, it was as if she had to scramble an X-wing to take out the death star. BB-8 prime wouldn't deliver on time, the next closest droid was R2-BestBuy. She took off in her Pod racer, and returned home, but, the force was not with my young Jedi. Upon opening the packaging and trying every, single, adaptor tip, the pass codes to unlock the power supply just didn't work. Unfortunately the mini- millennium falcon, was a few years to old to be included in this "multiverse" adaptor kit. However, she did discover, she could call the company and they would supply the correct adaptor tip via a United Space Postal Slug. The adaptor did arrive, free of charge, much to the disappointment of Jabba. The Force was with my daughter that day. And now we have several spare adaptor kits that fit several different laptops... Just in case Boba Fett, decides to take anyone else's charging cables in the house. May the force be with you. (Yes.. I typed this for my mom. Don't ask, no Ewoks or Porgs where injured in the making of this review)

    My bunny chewed through the adapter that came with my Toshiba laptop. I didn't have the time to wait to order a replacement from Toshiba, nor did I really want to pay what they would charge, so I went to BestBuy to get a "universal" one. A sales associate was very helpful, and helped me locate one to work with my laptop. This was very easy to use. The package included instructions on how to choose the correct nib, but in case you weren't certain, the package provides both a phone number and a website to enable you to locate your exact computer make and model. It works great! My only complaint is that it is bigger and bulkier than the original, but considering it is to accommodate a variety of computers, this is to be expected. On the plus side, it doesn't seem to get as hot as the original adapter when charging. While I do miss my original, due to its compact size, this is a great alternative -- reasonably priced, and works well. So, I guess the moral of the story is to keep wires away from your bunny if you don't want to have to lug around a bigger adapter! (She was very sneaky about it -- I had just shifted my position a little, and she came by very quietly, stood up on her little hind legs [hocks in bunny lingo], pulled the thing right out of my computer and ran away! I'm always very careful about these things -- I don't want people to think I put my bunny at risk! I just hadn't realized the wire dropped a bit from my lap, and she took full advantage of the situation!) I would definitely recommend this to others.

    Not for ASUS ROG

    My charger had died and I needed a new one ASAP. This was available in store and had the correct tip for my ASUS Republic of Gamers laptop. It worked like a charm, until I actually tried to play any games. While plugged in and in-game, the charger constantly disconnected and would reconnect every 5 seconds; this would cause my game to lag (even though I had excellent internet connection and even reduced all the games graphics), my screen to flash, and would cause my laptop to not charge and deplete my battery. I looked online as to why all this was happening and found out that the charger simply wasn't producing enough power for my laptop to use while gaming. I had even brought in my old charger to get all of the specs needed to make sure it would work, clearly the employee (super nice, don't get me wrong) didn't check everything or thought that because it had the correct tip, that it would be okay. While yes, it did work and did fit, it doesn't suit Republic of Gamers laptops or any gaming laptops that use much more power than regular laptops. I am getting a refund for this since I found a better charger; however, I would recommend this for people who need a replacement charger for regular laptops; just make sure it has the correct tip before buying (bring your charger in!)

    I bought a Lenovo laptop. Major problem.

    I bought a Lenovo laptop computer. The computer was not charging. I noticed the adapter cord was damaged but the cord was so short and cheap that it may have gotten crimped in my recliner although I don't think so. Because I wasn't sure, I bought from Best Buy the universal cord with the various tips. The Lenovo tip was the wrong one. Best Buy told me it would work but they couldn't order the correct one for me if it didn't. I would have to go through the manufacturer which turned out to be in China and I was unsuccessful getting one because that site had hundreds of cords for over 100 different versions of my model except the one I needed ending in US which I am thinking was for the United States. I have bought every computer I have ever owned through Best Buy (so many as I am an accountant). I have always bought HP in the past but the sales guy said he actually thought Lenovo was the better computer. While searching frantically for a new power cord I found this problem is quite common. I should have reviewed before buying but I was desparate to get something quick and you guys have always been great with me and my computer needs and have bailed me out many time. I love your geek squad. I am very disappointed.

    Terrible Customer Service

    This came with 6 tips and an assurance that if the tip you needed was not included, you could order it, at no charge, online. After checking which tip I needed and checking all the tips in the box, I determined that the tip I needed was not included. I went to order it online, but received a message that the tip WAS included in the box I bought. I checked again. Not only was the tip not included, it was not listed anywhere on the paperwork that it should have been included. I called the 800 number and the guy told me the same thing, the tip was in the box I bought. When I stated again that it was not, I was told to take it back to the store and get the "right" one or to order the tip I needed and pay for it. I went back to the store to return it and was told they only carry one universal adapter. I returned the product and will never buy another product from Insignia again.

    Dell doesn't recognize this power supply

    I bought three of these power supplies. I'm the Net Admin for a school, and I bought them for doing laptop maintenance. I tried using them on several Dell laptops, all the same model number: Dell Latitude E5450. In every case, during power up, the laptop showed an error message during bootup that said, "The AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge." I have attached a picture to this review so you can see the complete message. I was using the correct tip, included with the power supply in the package. These power supplies may work fine with other laptops - even other Dells - but your experience may not be everything you desired. I'm keeping them to try using them with other laptops, but I had to purchase official Dell power supplies for the Dell Latitude E5450s.
