Sure it works. Targus in their infinite wisdom has changed the ends and how they connect once again. No tips fit except for the latest ones.
They also make sure they scientifically formulate the exact tips you get to make sure you only fit about half of the super common laptops so you got to, yup guess what BUY a expansion kit with more tips. If you have an older Targus Universal laying around oh well that's exactly what it is. The tips can't be shared! So do you want a tip for me? Amazon, Wish app, eBay,,,,, I just bought it cuz I needed it that day and I could have been a complete communist and just brought it back ...but I don't believe in renting merchandise like that, it's not honest. But only buy this if you're desperate and in a hurry
