    I have owned almost every aftermarket charger out there from Retrak to Insignia and others I couldn't even pronounce the name. This one is by far my favorite for a few reasons. #1 and the BIGGEST reason I am loving this little guy is that it actually charges my Dell laptops (inspiron, latitude, new, old) like it should! I know that doesn't sound that impressive (it's a charger so it should charge it you say) but considering Dell builds into their chargers a specific circuit to enable the laptop to recognize the charger as a "Dell" charger or not, it is a HUGE deal. Whatever person engineered this beauty, they did it right! #2 A great (small) size and well thought out for travelers. Besides the fact that the power "prongs" swivel into the case for a flush design when packed away, the charger itself is quite aesthetically pleasing. #3 Works in every country I have tried it in. Of course you may need the USA to whatever country you are in adapter to plug it into the power source still. Other than that, this thing handles every standard power output like a champ. I have even ran it off a generator without the power being conditioned too well (spiky) and it performed terrifically. If this thing came with a retractable cord it would best the best designed adapter EVER...

    I left my laptop charger for my work computer at home & was 4 hours away. I had to make a company deadline & submit a project so I went in to best buy to find a charger....All of my coworkers said it was really difficult to find a charger as our computers are a bit out dated. The sales person helped me so much. He ended up having 2 chargers that were compatible and was able to tell me the features and benefits of each one. I bought the Platinum one and didn't realize how amazing it would be...it comes with multiple connector pieces making it super versatile....it literally charges all of my tech for work. It also says on the box that if the connector piece you need did not come with the set that they would mail you the one you need for free! I like the fact that the cord is longer than the original one that came with my laptop & it also seems to charge much faster. Super happy with my purchase & would definitely recommend this item & shopping at the Roseville, CA location.

    I try to always carry an adapter and have been used to the size and weight of the traditional big block and separate cables. This item is really small, block-wise, and the block plugs directly into the wall. This allows a longer, simple cable to run from the wall to my computer. Streamlined and more function. Like it so much I bought two, one to keep at my office. The flexibility of tips appears to meet a wide variety of computers. One thing to be aware: I found a tip that fit, but it would not charge my laptop when I was using the laptop. On a fluke, that tip was accidentally broken. When I tried another that fit, it was actually the right tip and now charges my laptop whether being used or off/asleep.

    When I originally bought this charger, I didn't think I was going to like it. But it has won my approbation, with one caveat. The cord is longer than the original one that came with my laptop (which my dog chewed through!). It has two USB ports on the base which allows me to plug in my cell phone. And it charges fast! The only problem (here's the caveat): the base is at the end of the charger which means if you are not sitting close to it, you cannot charge your cell phone with the phone sitting next to you. The upside is, you can unplug the base from the cord and use it to charge other electronics! A great choice for a charger.

    Great Laptop and USB iPhone Charger in One!

    I was looking for a small laptop charger I could use with my new HP Spectre 360x2 13.3. I wanted to get something that would fit in my small laptop sleeve type bag and this really was a great choice. The power brick is very small and the plug folds into the body of the brick!! The charging cable for the laptop is about 7 feet long and flat. The brick also has TWO USB charge ports so I can charge my HP, iPhone and headset at the SAME time!!! Great product and quality construction!!! I wish I could say the same about the HP!!!

    Allows me to work, but does not charge

    I purchased this as a travel adapter for my HP Envy Convertible 15" screen. It is compact, has a great length cord, and allows me to use my laptop when the battery is dead. However, it does not charge the battery if I am using the laptop. If I turn it off or put it in sleep mode, there is enough power to charge the battery. Makes it functional, but sometimes trapped if I need to use the laptop and would like to get a charge to get mobile again. I would recommend the unit based on it compact form factor and cord length, with a warning as to the charging limitation.

    My HP wire/converter quit on me in a pinch. Went to the Best Buy store nearby and saw a generic one around $55 and this was more expensive. However, it is worth every penny extra! It is low profile, the cord never twists or kinks, it has a ton of different adapters to work with all sorts of equipment (phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) that I have, and you can charge 3 units simultaneously (2 USB cord slots)! Brilliant for travel as well as home/office needs. Pay the extra few bucks and get the best!

    Good for some laptops

    Good for some laptops. My computer won't go on high performance mode unless it is plugged up, and when it is plugged up it automatically goes to high perf mode. If your battery is at 100% and high perf mode kicks in its fine, but if your batter is low and it has to recharge your computer at the same time as turning on high perf mode, it gets hot and turns off. Good for low performance laptops. not for gaming laptops.
