And yes, it does get hot.
You get 10 additional tips for free + S/H of $5. If you buy several tips in the same order, it is still only 5$ for the whole order, not per item. Additional tips you may want to get:
U301, microusb to charge most phones not made by Apple;
U302, which allows you to plug any USB device;
APC02USZ, which allows you to use the adapter on an airplane which have empower sockets and not the auto/cigarette sockets
When my fiance started traveling a lot for work, I decided to get her one too, so I ordered it from Amazon.
Actually, I ordered it from eComElectronics, but it was "fulfilled by Amazon" and therein lies the problem.
The product arrived in a really small box- the kind that folds together and opens with the "pull here" tab.
I didn't think it was the charger because, as I stated earlier, I have purchased this product new before, and know what the packaging is supposed to look like.
It came in a white plastic bag that says NEW on it, but when I opened it, I could tell it was not.
The product was scratched from use, the cord was plugged into the unit and wrapped badly.
additionally, the cord maintenance wrap is missing along with the spare tip holder.
When I called Amazon to complain, the "customer service" representative told me that they could send me the one Amazon sells for an extra $50, or offer me a refund.
I took the refund.
Other reviewers had the same problem I did with other resellers, but I thought that the "Fulfilled by Amazon" stamp meant that Amazon stood buy the product.
I was wrong.
If you've read this far, thanks for listening to my rant; I hope I've saved you from the same frustration.
Lastly, it really is a good product, it's a shame Amazon and their partners are pulling a bait and switch with it.
Temperature aside, the compact unit can charge two things at once (did not try), and has an car DC adapter with an automatic cut-off if it gets too hot. I have not had a chance to check that particular temperature for charging a laptop in the car, but will update this review if I do. There is no adapter for a mini usb cell phone connection, an increasingly common charger connection for smart phones like Blackberry and Droids. Adapters are cheap, but you may need one to charge your phone.Read more ›
The only downside is that the tips easily separate from the connector - I used some simple scotch tape to keep them together. This seems to work fine.
I also like how it charges my Blackberry at the same time, eliminating the need to carry my Blackberry charger on my frequent business trips.
Seems like a great little unit. I love the small size. The cord length (about 6.5', not including the mini-brick) isn't quite enough for my purposes, so I'm carrying a small extension cord as well. It'd be nice if the supplied cord was longer.
I'm happy to report the unit does work with my 8740w. It gets pretty warm, especially if the laptop battery requires charging. My 8740w must use close to 90W when running as it took ~10 hours to charge the battery from 25%-100%. The 200W my laptop came with will do the same charge in less than an hour. The APM69US performed the charge pretty quick with the laptop powered off, although I don't have an actual number (harder to time that when the laptop if off).
The supplied tips seem like a good selection, although there is no micro-USB. It may be that at the time of the original production of this power supply the micro-USB was not that common, but certainly it is now. You'd think they'd update the package. You can, however, get a "free" tip (or two, I forget) with this power supply through the Targus website, but you have to pay for shipping. So while that's nice, it's not really free.Read more ›
