Short cable and non-standard connectors
on February 11, 2010
The cable failed to work when connected to my HP laptop. After a couple of attempts with other devices and then a second attempt with the laptop and with some additional fiddling I was able to get it to connect.
The connectors are a bit non-standard (shorter than usual) which I assume is why it didn't connect correctly and it also made it very difficult to disconnect as well (from deeper sockets).
The retracting mechanism works very well, but the overall length (at 3 feet) is quite short for most applications. As an emergency cable in my bag it will suffice, but I would strongly encourage you to look at a longer cable and to consider other brands before buying...
