I have a smaller Kensington charger that I've used for several years, and I love it. Unfortunately, it isn't powerful enough to charge my new HP while the laptop is running. It charges it fine when it's off or in standby. I bought the larger Kensington charger, but it's did exactly the same thing - will not charge the HP while it's running. It's possible that the issue is HP. I get a message on the laptop that I'm not using an approved power source, even though it meets the HP electrical specs. A ploy by HP to get you to buy their smart charger??

The cord from the charger to the wall is WAY too short. I don't know what Kensington was thinking when they designed it, but it's pretty useless in a hotel room or even at home.

Update: I contacted Kensington support by phone and they were very easy to deal with. They had me try a number of tests and, when the unit was deemed defective, they sent a brand new one. All I had to do was remove the serial number from the old one and mark it as unusable. Though I wish it had not failed in the first place, Kensington was quick to get me working again.

Original Review:
I loved this charger until this week. Though the charger was bought only 3 1/2 months ago, it has completely failed. While traveling it suddenly stopped working, so I had to borrow chargers from other colleagues until I got home. At least I still have the original Dell charger for my next trip.

I will contact Kensington support this week (their website does not post any support for this model, unfortunately) and if they provide a newer working model I'll update my post.

I was looking for a small and lightweight charger to take with me when travelling.
The original charger is pretty large, and heavy. It needs a 3 phase cable with micky-mouse connector. Therefore you either have to carry a second ac cable or a large adaptor if you travel a lot between Europe and the US as I do.

What I received was way better than expected.
a) This is the smallest charger I have ever seen.
b) The set came with a number of different tips, and I found two that work with my Medion (a Lenovo subsidiary) laptop. That these tips are angled, and not straight as on most other chargers is very convenient as it reduces the working space needed.
c) My notebook requires 100 W, this Kensington charger only is labeled to produce 90 W. Hence, it works without any problems, even the battery is nearly empty and I run programs like Adobe Photo Shop that need plenty of juice.
I had another Kensington charger before, and occasionally had to live with malfunctions (e.g. the mouse pad not working or a flickering screen). Not with this one.
I even charged my iPhone on one of the USB ports at the same time, and still did not encounter any problems. Surprisingly this charger does not even get hot (just little more than hand-warm) when running at full throttle.
d) I consider it extremely useful that you get two USB outlets. This way you can leave any additional chargers at home, which saves even more weight and space in your luggage for other useful things.

The only down-side is the short dc cable that connects to the laptop. I assume Kensington did this to keep size and weight low.

If it does not break too soon as read in some other reviews, an absolutely recommendable device.

Bought this as a power supply for a 3D printer that also runs a Raspberry Pi. The 2 USB ports on the device makes this absolutely awesome. Also, it doesn't create too much heat even after hours of use and it is surprisingly slim.

Bought this laptop power adapter at local store while it was $70.
I like the feature it can charge three devices at a time. In fact, I have been using this brand laptop/netbook power adapters in the past and they simply worked.
It works with the following laptops/netbook, and phone and tablet:
Toshiba P775d laptop
HP M6-1035DX laptop
Asus Q501LA laptop (use Toshiba tip)
Acer V5-122p netbook

Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus
Samsung Galaxy Note 2
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
Sony Xperia Ion

However, you should do your math when using this adapter to avoid damage since it has up to 100 watts total. If your laptop only consumes up to 65 watts, you should have no problem charging 3 devices altogether even all are charging battery, but if your laptop consumes 90 watts, you should avoid using USB power until the laptop finished charging battery.
It can charge two USB devices at a time, but there's a slot which output 1A of power and a "normal" port which outputs 2A of power. You can buy a micro USB OTG adapter and plug it to 1A output.
This power adapter just works with all devices I mentioned above and your mileage may vary.

I own a Sony Vaio F-Series media laptop (16" screen, Intel i7, OEM charger is rated at 120W). One of the things I did not like about the laptop was the fact that the power supply was literally the size and weight of a brick. I was looking at this one and the Targus 90W universal laptop charger. I eventually choose this charger because the power cord going into the wall socket is replaceable, which allows me to order a longer cable if needed.

The pictures on here do not give the charger justice. It is probably the smallest charger I have seen in its class (90W).

Pros:
-Small size, its about the size of my HTC One X phone, but a bit thicker.
-Powers and charges my laptop, just like the OEM charger.
-2 USB ports for fast charging.
-Comes with an array of charging tips for different brands of laptops.
-Doesn't get too hot

Cons:
-The included cable is pretty short. You may want to purchases a longer power cable for it (it uses a figure-8 receptacle).
-You have to select what voltage your laptop uses. This may be confusing for some users.
