Don't waste your money on this chinease made pos.
Doug
Cord from adapter brick to laptop is much too short, even on a standard table with your laptop sitting in a normal position the brick will not reach the floor.
Keith Murphy
Intermittently wouldn't charge/power the laptop, and then stopped working altogether at about 6 months.

This is a very expensive product if you buy it at the store, as I did. But if your regular power supply isn't working for your laptop, as mine quit doing for my Toshiba (and long ago started acting up with my Dell), this power supply will work. You have to follow the instructions in the booklet provided, though--this is not a plug-and-play power adapter, which at first led me to believe I had wasted $100. But on the back of the product, it says it works with Dell, Toshiba, Sony, HP, Compaq, Lenovo, Fujitsu, Gateway, etc, and I had found two adapters in the package that fit both my Toshiba and Dell (there are many different sizes included). I didn't understand why the supply wouldn't work with either of my laptops.

After reading the booklet, I saw that you have to either have your laptop in standby/hibernate/sleep or turned off before you hook up the power supply, and then your laptop will recognize it. Once I put both laptops on standby mode and then plugged in the power supply, both laptop batteries started charging and recognizing the power supply. The power supply fits great, does not fall out and feels pretty strong. You do not need to go through the standby/turn off process after the first time, either--if you unplug the supply from your laptop, it will be recognized the next time you plug it back in.

Despite the store price, I'm pretty happy with this. Just see if you can find it cheaper online.

Bought this at the beginning of the school semester to use with my laptop. For most of the semester it worked fine, just as advertised. I had no complaints until a few weeks before the end of school when it would not work immediately when I plugged it in. After a week of that it just stopped working altogether. This was all after just a few months. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

--Rocketfish AC Adapter and Power Cord--

PROS: Like the other reviewers, I think it's a good quality power cord and one that's versatile enough for different equipment. No complaints in the quality department.

CONS: I bought the Rocketfish power adapter to replace a destroyed standard HP Pavilion power cord. Compared to my old HP adapter and cord, the Rocketfish is thicker, a bit heavier, and the cord is SHORTER. These may seem like minor compaints unless you take your computer on the go a lot, in which case you could get a bit tired of the trip-hazard-length of the cord and the bulky weight of the adapter. Here's the biggest dillema: for some reason, this power cord will NOT CHARGE my laptop. It powers it just fine, but it will not provide a charge. This could be a wierd glitch with my own computer. Nonetheless, I'm still using the Rocketfish!

Worked for about 4 months then started having problems. Intermittently wouldn't charge/power the laptop, and then stopped working altogether at about 6 months. We tried it on several laptops to see if it was just the tips. Nope-- the box itself, which had been very gently used just quit! What a rip off-- and it's not like this was cheap-- $80 down the drain!!!! Shame on Best Buy to not replace/warrantee this product; this is obviously a defect in the entire product line!!

I picked up this adapter for about 20 bucks. I got what I paid for, I suppose, in that it had a serious overheating problem and stopped working altogether after about a month.

The power cord was long enough to reach outlets fairly far away, and that's about all that was good with this unit.

I advise you to look elsewhere.

I ordered this item because my charger for my labtop had broken, ever since I recieved this item it has been a piece of junk! It has to be in my labtop JUST right to work and a majority of the time my laptop will just shut off because the charger doesn't CHARGE it. I would NOT recommend this product!

This and every other adapter I have bought from this company have not worked properly after several weeks. What a pain!
