    I got this to use to both recharge my cell while running the laptop while working on the run. Great power management, since my old one will trip the break switch every so often. So I would have to press the reset on the inverter. Overall a compact, efficient unit. Pricey but you get what you pay for. One thing to change, the fan is a little noisy. There are fans that size that are more quieter.

    This device makes a constant, loud, high-pitched whine, because it uses a tiny cooling fan that must be spun at high RPM to be effective. While in use, it sounds as if you have a mosquito inside your ear. Road noise at highway speeds and a loud radio are not enough to mask the noise.

      Comments about Targus 100W Slim Inverter:

      this is a great product. My HP laptop/tablet doesn't come with an auto charger and I was looking at a huge charger to pack with me when I travel, since almost all cars have the same voltage systems. I finally found this devise and it has a little extra PLUS...a charger to use on the airplane while traveling. Admittedly separating the plane connection from the auto connection is a little difficult, but I can deal with it. This is about the size of a pack of cards.

      Comments about Targus 100W Slim Inverter:

      I had been looking for something like this since buying my convertible computer which came with no way to charge in a vehicle. I travel a lot and when I go overseas I want something I can use to charge my computer and other devises. This fills the bill completely a all cars have the same electrical systems but home power is different in every country it seems. This is small, compact and works great...already tried it here.

      Pros

      • Did Its Job Recharging
      • Easy to Install
      • Easy To Use

      Cons

      • Overheats Easily

      Best Uses

      • Perfect Fit For My Truck

      Comments about Targus 100W Slim Inverter:

      A little expensive and overheats easily and shuts down, so make sure it is properly ventilated. Blue light indicates charging, low voltage, and shutdown. Be aware it drains your battery, so don't leave it on all night; fortunately for me it happened in a Walmart parking lot. Unit recharged my laptop quickly, so it was worth the trouble. For me, this is an essential tool while on the road, and I would buy it again. There are cheaper units available but you won't know how well they work until you're in the middle of nowhere with a dead computer or phone.

        • Any vehicle

        Comments about Targus 100W Slim Inverter:

        This inverter is compact enough to take with you on all your trips. Just plug in your devices just as you would from your home or office. No need to worry about your laptop battery dying on you in the middle of a movie during that long road trip. Play too many games on your phone? Charge it with the available USB port, or use the plug, either way this has got you covered. Okay, I only used it once on my computer, but it made an otherwise very long day in a car much more bearable. I Plan to use it next time I fly on another one of those long flights I seem to always end up on.

            Comments about Targus 100W Slim Inverter:

            Was looking for a car ac adapter for my laptop when the staples fellow suggested trying this device. Boy was he correct.

            With this inverter, I am able to power my laptop and charge my phone at the same time. I am confident it will power just about any low-wattage device with a 110v power cord from the car battery.

            The inverter has a built-in fan that generates a little noise, but is not loud enough to be annoying. It will get a little warm, but hasn't gotten hot enough to melt plastic or singe carpet.

            Has powered laptop for several hours now without any problems.
