I picked this up at an office superstore while on vacation because I left my laptop charger at home. The user manual was short and straightforward, and I had no problem choosing the right adapter plug for my one year old Acer laptop. The Targus web site also has an extensive compatibility application to help you choose which adapter plug to use for your laptop (links are in the manual or just go to Targus.com and browse around). The charger with adapter plug seems to be sturdy and well constructed and worked flawlessly for me for the week I needed it. The power brick stayed cool and was completely silent as it should be. One thing I like about this universal laptop charger is that the adapter plugs are keyed so they can only attach to the DC power supply cord one way, thus eliminating the possibility of reversing the polarity by accident and potentially frying your laptop. This may be a common feature of more recent universal laptop chargers, but some older units I considered required you to determine the correct polarity, thus introducing the potential for accidentally using the incorrect polarity. This Targus charger also does not have a manual adjustment for the output voltage, but adjusts automatically, again reducing the potential for human error. Please note that I only gave 3 stars for size, as this charger is a little bigger than my OEM charger, but it is not unusually large or bulky.

I can not speak to this product's use, since I will have to return it. Although listed as compatible with Fujitsu equipment, it is not compatible with the A550 laptop.

I am disappointed, not with the product, but with its compatibility.

I am attaching photos of the "P" tip (red) that is supposed to be compatible and of the Fujitsu supplied charger tips.

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

The charger works ok as long as it STAYS connected.
The fit of the charger plug to my laptop outlet for the charger isn't firm & doesn't hold well.
A slight movement of the laptop & the plug comes off and I have to plug it in again.

universal charger was just the answer

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

Staples salesman was very helpful and guided me to the right charger to fit my laptop. The computer is holding a charge just like when it was new! The computer sales staff at my local Staples is very knowledgeable and 9 times out of 10, they can answer my questions, no matter how obscure. I was almost ready to give up on the laptop figuring it was getting older. For my use, it was tough to justify a new purchase at this point. Thanks to the salesman's help, I now can get a little more time with my current laptop.

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

I have a HP laptop that simply quit working. It would not pover up at all. I examined the power cord and determined everthing looked good. Other devices plugged into the power strip. worked so now what? I decided to try a new power charger to see if it would make a difference. So off to Staples with the old power charger in tow. The staff were very helpful and directed me to the Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger. It is a 90Watt charger and was an easy install. I simply took it out of the packaging found the correct adapter tip for my computer plugged it in and had power to the computer again.
