    Product Good/Service Could of Been Better

    I've had the item for about a month now and it's still working fine. The process of me getting it was a hassle. I got this one after being told by someone from Best Buy Customer Service to get a different one that would be compatible with my Asus. After waiting for it to be delivered at the store I took it home and found out it didn't even fit. Then I went in to get an exchange and the first customer service rep there, who's name I believe was Amy refunded me instead of did an exchange and made it whereas I had to pay for my new item in full, and the money refunded to me wouldn't be accessible to me for a couple days. Tyler helped me find the proper cord, and Jillian bent over backwards for me to be able to get my cord from the store that day with using my initial form of payment, which was from PayPal. I was literally there for a couple hours just to get a cord.

    Excellent spare power supply

    I purchased this because the primary power supply was left at a conference. This was used as a temporary while the primary was being shipped back to me. Now, when the computer is taken to a client's location the Targus is used. This way the power supply at the office does not need to be removed and there is no chance of accidentally leaving it somewhere. The other advantage is that my wife has used it with her Lenovo since there are plug heads for all major brands.

    I had to buy this item because my charger to my computer. I didn't need all the items that came with it for different countries but had to take the package deal. I think that you should carry things that when you walk into your store you shouldn't have to buy a package deal and only the one item in that package like the item I only needed which was a plug in charger to go to my computer. $60.00 for a wire and a lot of other items that I will never use. It is crazy when I only needed the plug in charger and not all those things in the package.

    I asked the sales associate if this would work for my lap top since it was a universal one. He told me it would and tried to fit it into my lap top to show me. I got it home and it would not even begin to charge my lap top. Too bad best buy cannot get me one like the original that is made for my computer. Why can't they service what they sell. Dont buy this if you have a best buy lenovo laptop, it does NOT work.

    I travel regularly, being retired, and need/want a lot of tech with me so each item is purchased with size and weight in mind. This Targus Power adapter fit the bill in both areas significantly reducing the space taken in my leather travel messenger bag which houses all of my tech. On top of that it charges my laptop faster than the charger that came with it. I love this little device. And when I get to my destination which usually has a meager desk area-it takes up less room there also.

    I left my laptop charger at home by mistake while traveling. Fortunately, there was a Best Buy store close by so I went in to see if they had anything that would work with my particular lap top (knowing that an incorrect charger could cause problems with the lap top). The sales rep in the store was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I walked out with a correct charger in less than 10 minutes time. Thanks Best Buy for being there and for having great sales reps.

    I use this PS for when I'm on the road

    I currently have a Lenovo Yoga 13 and travel weekly from Pittsburgh to Charlotte. I needed a PS at both locations and I've seen reviews where other Lenovo owners complained about cable failures on their PS's. I decided to be pro-active and get a new PS for when I'm on the road. The Targus model has the same wattage and is more compact. The cable from the PS to computer has a more robust strain relief so I'm sure it will last for this road warrior stint.

    My charger broke in the middle of a business trip to Hawaii and I was desperate. All online services would take a week to deliver, and WalMart, etc. didn't have the special tip that I needed, but I called Best Buy and they had the Targus in stock. It came with a number of tips, including my special one, was reasonably priced and the sales person was extremely knowledgeable (a rarity at stores other than Apple). Great product, great experience.

    This charger has performed flawlessly and for the price has been a worthwhile investment. It has many different application possibilities and is quite universal. The sales associate was very helpful in finding this particular item and that it was correct for the immediate application I was going to use it for.

    This charger although well made has many adapters which is a problem is you are using a larger Asus Laptop. Such as a gaming unit. A gaming unit requires much more than this charger can produce., almost twice as much. Best Buy was able to aquire the charger that was needed, it cost a little more but worked great. Always check the model number against the product you my.

    Bought this in an emergency (forgot my power cord) for Lenovo laptop. It does NOT charge the computer. I merely powers it while plugged in, but even then it says "plugged in, discharging", so sounds like it is doing nothing beneficial. WASTE OF MONEY!!! DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE AND JUST NEED POWER!

    This is such a convenient product. I do a lot of traveling for work and would either forget my laptop charger at home or at the office... this secondary charger gives me the ability to keep one in my work bag and one at home. The only downside to this product is the price...

    Great Backup Power Supply for Office Laptops

    Our IT department purchased two of these to use in the office whenever someone left their power cord at home. This happens more than you would think and now, no matter what model laptop they have, there is a pretty good chance we can help them out. Only thing keeping the 5th star away is that it is missing the connector for one of our laptop models, but certainly worth it for the price.

    I don't know how many times I have gone to the job site only to find that I've left my power supply at home. Thankfully, this time when I found myself in this situation and no where near my home, there was a Best Buy nearby to facilitate my needs. This thing fit perfectly and worked instantly to keep me operational for the remainder of the evening.

    When you get tired of wrapping up your charger to bring it everywhere, get this and leave it at work or home. I get tired of unplugging and gathering the cord to put into my bag, only to take it back out when I got home. I know First World Problems. Anyway, my Lenovo is happily charged.

    Thankfully this was in stock, even though the bestbuy rep told me it wasn't! Mine broke and I had to work and without a charger, where are we? At any rate, what I like about it is it's ALOT lighter than the charger that originally came with my laptop! and if anyone else in my family has a charger issue, there are so many options for other laptops with this charger.

    Don't Buy Before Checking Tip Compatibility

    Although we checked on line in the store if this charger was compatible with my laptop, I found when I opened the package at home that the proper tip was not included. Also, it would cost another $9.95. I returned it to Best Buy and ordered another charger directly from DELL. No harm done, except lost time. It's probably better not to buy a "universal" adapter.

    Lost the power adapter for my lightweight Asus, and needed a replacement fast. This unit did the trick. Variety of different power tips to fit different laptops; check compatibility at targus.com/power. (Frankly, this has better compatibility - and easier checking - than the similar Insignia/Best Buy replacement bricks.)

    This charger is great! My old one's wires got rough, so this one comes in handy, giving me flexibility with the small port attached the the charger cable to switch between different ports and not worrying about the wire breaking there.
