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 cord works & fits beautifullly, as well as if it was the original cord that came with my laptop. I'm so glad that Staples has these available! Had this not been possible then I'd have lost my transaction.

Great Charger

By Accountant Anne

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

This charger was recommended by the computer technician at our local Staples store. I had previously replaced my original laptop charger with one I ordered online. That charger lasted almost a year but the cord had a manufacturer's defect so the charger was replaced under warranty. The replacement charger failed within two months. I could have gotten another replacement under warranty, but would have had to pay "shipping and handling". Since their chargers had already failed twice, purchasing another didn't make sense. The Targus charger is working great and I can depend on it to work which allows me to remove the battery while using the laptop at work. I am completely satisfied and particularly like the versatility available through the numerous interchangeable connections for different brands/models of laptops. It was also competitively priced as I paid less than I would have paid for generic chargers at other stores I had price shopped. I have also purchased other Targus brand items and never encountered a problem.

The store had the charger in stock so I was able to get my laptop up and running immediately. The computer tech at the store (she was also the store manager) was very helpful and I didn't have to wait at all for service. I can't imagine a better experience.

Happy customer.

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

It's great that Targus offers a universal charger with so many available connections for different computers. The cord is a little shorter that my original cord for my Acer computer, but I'm so grateful to be able to charger and use my computer that not's not a big issue. Sometimes the connections come apart. It would be great if there was a way to lock them together. By this I am talking about the end connection that is connected to the cord before entering the computer. I have seen cords that have a slide or a snap that connect the two so they don't come apart. Overall, I am still very happy with my replacement charger.

Targus Universal Laptop Charger

Comments about Targus Universal AC Laptop Charger:

The charger worked correctly out of the box. Recharged the battery and continues to run the laptop. A bit pricier than the OEM charger, but seems to be well worth the price...and it can be used on other products requiring the same basis voltage reduction. A good buy
