I figured out how to make this work better for my computer...
on February 23, 2013
I bought this from a store. After one of my tips stopped working, I came here to read reviews. I heard that this product sometimes stops working, so I figured the tips were wearing out. But what I just discovered is that inside the tips, there are two metal prongs that are used to conduct electricity from the tip to the electrical input prong inside the power cord hole on my laptop. With repeated use, these prongs can be pushed against the plastic sides of the tip, leaving space between the prongs in the tip and the prong in the hole. I used a needle to bend the prongs inside the tip to push them towards the center more. This immediately worked, and the electrical conduction was reconnected. I think this trick would work for other tips that don't fit as well, and making it so they will work despite the incorrect fit. I hope this helps others who may have an issue with this charger.
