The adapter is slim, light and nice looking. Be aware, that it is not compatible with the HP Envy 17 1181NR. I spoke with HP's technical support regarding the issue, and the rep claimed "We received an email about it and they are currently working to resolve the issue, but the 65W adapter will not work like we claim it will on our website". If you check the compatibility chart on HP's website, it specifically states this adapter will work. However, when connected you will receive a message from the HP Support Assistant software "This smart adapter does not provide adequate power for this laptop" and the screen will flicker.

The compatability list given above (dated 1/12/2011) is out of date! This "Slim Travel Power Adapter" is no longer officially compatable with the dv6 series of Pavilion notebooks!

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ADAPTER IF YOU HAVE AN HP PAVILION DV6 SERIES LAPTOP!!!

Below is a link to the updated (dated 8/9/2011) compatability list:

It took me three different purchases of this charger to finally get the correct adapter for my HP Envy 14-3010NR Spectre. I bought the laptop from Amazon and was directed to this page under the "frequently bought together" link.

It turns out since this is the same charger body used since 2004, there are at least two different versions of this product with the same part number: VF685AA#ABA

My first two purchases from Amazon yielded a charger body exactly like the one that came with the laptop. The only issue is there were 2 adapter pins to fit the computer (one blue tipped and one black tipped) and both were too big. For my third attempt I contacted HP directly and verified that VF685AA#ABA is the part number I want. The salesperson assured me it would work so I purchased directly from them.

Here is the difference: The product from HP was in the exact same box as the previous two items I'd gone through. The only difference was a little sticker on the box that stated "Ultrabook Compatible". Low and behold this box came with 3 adapters and the third one (the silver tipped) fit perfectly.

The reviews on HP's website for this same product have the same complaints for the Envy 14 so be prepared to deal with headaches.

I purchased this adapter for an HP dm1z because the power adapter that ships with the HP netbook/mini laptop is too bulky for travel. Even after twist-locking the connections this adapter only works if you manually push the connections together with all your might. Once you let go, the connections loosen and the adapter stops charging. Look elsewhere for a travel adapter because this one is a waste of money.

This part was not the right fit for my device, as per stated in the discription. I sent the part back almost a month ago and still have not recieved the credit to my account.
Is there a way for me to follow up?

bought the product along with an HP Envy 14...doesn't fit this computer even though it is in you catalogue along side it. Now I must search for an adapter of some sort. Quite frustrating!

I just bought an HP ENVY with this and it works great!! A little smaller than the one you get with a new ENVY.

Great green(er) alternative to the 125w power adapter included with the HP Envy 15. It's less than 25% the size and weight of the full 125w adapter. The main disadvantage is that the system charges much slower.

This adapter includes a USB plug.

Highly recommend this adapter as spare or as replacement. The unit itself is first rate. Cords are excellent. After two months usage, haven't seen any issues with unit running hot, or slow to charge or any other problems mentioned by a few reviewers over the years. Basically it's doing everything it's supposed to and from a thinner and lighter-weight package. The additional port was great idea; we have used it for variety of devices and 100% satisfied.

Great charger and much cheaper than buying directly from HP. It works perfectly with my HP Envy 14. The stock charger was no longer working due to my clumsiness (I broke it). This charger is much smaller than the original one and the cords are shorter. It also comes with three (I think) other cables that are compatible with other models. I am also very pleased with Amazon's service. I chose two-day free shipping (Amazon Prime) but I had issues with the shipper (Prestige). They lost my package, for the third time, but Amazon replaced it immeadiately. I wish Amazon would stop doing business with Prestige but I am pleased with the service I received from Amazon.
