This little, cheap mod has saved the day!

My cord is now directed to the rear of the laptop instead of sticking out on the right where my mouse pad is.

I've been using the first one for about 8 months and it is still working good.

ASUS Republic of Gamers G53 and G73 laptops have a major design flaw. Due to the right angling of the power adapter, the connector pin often breaks. When the pin breaks, the laptop can no longer receive power or be charged.

This happened to me three times. ASUS covered the repairs to my G53. However, customers must provide their own packaging to the facility. Furthermore, home pickup is not available.

At one point ASUS was prepared to charge me with shipping and repairs, citing the issue as "customer induced damage." Since I purchased the laptop through Amazon, they graciously offered to reimburse me for any repair cost. Amazon is truly an amazing company. However, ASUS ultimately agreed to pay for shipping and repairs when I called back and pointed out their warranty included accidental damage.

Between calling customer support, finding or buying packing materials, driving 14 miles to my nearest FEDEX drop off, and a 2 week repair turnaround (including shipping time), getting my laptop serviced became quite an ordeal. Without my laptop I could not pay bills online or take my online college classes.

Now imagine your $1000+ notebook is no longer under warranty. Is a converter under $10 (with shipping) worth protecting your investment? For me it was.

This converter redirects the tension placed on the adapter pin. It is also much looser than the ASUS-provided power jack. When the cord gets pulled too hard, the right angle converter simply falls out, instead of the adapter pin becoming damaged.

My laptop would get broken after five or six weeks of use. Three times in seven months, subtracting six weeks due to repair turnaround.

The piece is nice when it works. It stopped working after the first day. Tried two different laptops and not able to get it to work with the power supply. I guess I wasted $10 as there is no point in trying to get a replacement.

cheap piece of junk.

Product works as designed - an L-shaped connector that helps relieve shearing stress on male connector pins for laptops whose powerjacks have a protruding pin. I have an ASUS G53S computer, and the pin broke off less than 6 months of usage, primarily due to the design of the powerjack. The internal pin is only around 2 mm wide at its widest point, and this is where it snapped off the powerjack, as the straight-protruding design of the adapter tip on the power supply places unnecessary stress on it.

However, this L-shaped connector has a number of flaws itself. It overheats very easily, as the plastic that houses it starts to soften/melt within just a few hours of usage. Repeated heated/cooling cycles seems to stop it from working entirely, and it wasn't until I stripped away the plastic casing did I figure out why - the electrical connection from the adapter tip to the rest of the power supply is dependendent on a single bit of soldered wire, and this soldered connection will actually disconnect from the shell of the adapter tip if it gets too hot. I would recommend using more solder, or some kind of non-melting binding to prevent this from happening, for a more stable connection.

This plug works with the G53SW-XN1 Asus laptop.

It's not a bad plug, seems like it fits just right without being too tight. I use a mouse so this converter came in handy, the power jack doesn't get in the way anymore.

i dont know what this was designed for but i tried to use it for my asus g53sw laptop and the thing became soft and flexible due to the intense heat coming through the jack. burned myself too. but this tells me its not designed for those currents so whatever. does work but has a few problems.

I love my ASUS but the direction of the power plug is a serious design flaw. This plug solves the problem.

I recently purchased an Asus G53JW and had only one complaint, the unusual power plug placement on the right side. This adapter was just what I was looking for. Now my power cable is no longer in the way when I am blasting my foes online.

Awesome device. The quality is spot on and a must have accessory for Asus G53/G54/G73/G74 etc. series ROG laptops. Especially it not only brings a lot of flexibility to how the power connector connects to the DC power jack on the laptop but it also prevents the likelihood of breaking the pin inside DC power jack which has been a rather widespread issue/problem in the aforementioned laptop models. I'm happy with this purchase.
