Targus Netbook Charger

The Targus Netbook Charger allows you to easily power or charge a netbook and one additional item such as a camera, cell phone or MP3 player at the same time. For added convenience, the charger is small in size and features thin, lightweight cords that pack quickly and easily for convenient travel. The integrated tip storage clips onto the power cord so tips stay with the charger and are readily available when needed. The charger includes 6 netbook tips, an iPod/iPhone and a mini USB tip out of the box. The product also includes the Tips from Targus Program which supplies users with a free tip* for your 2nd electronic device and free tips for future netbooks, cell phones and small accessories so the charger remains compatible with your devices.

Good product, but cord is too short!

This is how my laptops charger should have been out of the box. The styling is great. The fold up plug is a nice feature. I have seen the reviews from those who have trashed the interchangeable tips. If you are that rough on your electronics then you shouldn’t be surprised when they break. The fact that I can charge multiple items at the same time is great. The biggest problem I have with the product is that it replaced a laptop charger with a two part transformer/ cord. Because of this the new cord is less then half the length of the old one. This isn’t a big deal when sitting at a desk, but when working on the couch, or from bed it makes things very difficult. If it came with more common adapters such as a USB micro, or Apple (not an Apple fan but everyone else seems to be on the band wagon lately) style plugs that would be a plus, but I’m guessing they were not included purposely. Charge a few bucks more and fix those problems and this charger would rule the market. I had never heard of the brand before but I am overall impressed.

Terrible Buy

I bought this charger and within 3 days the tip L131 broke off in my laptop. I had to get this removed from my laptop and then order another tip from the company. I got the replacement tip from Targus and that broke within a day of me buying it as well. This is a terrible charger and not worth the money.
Pros: none
Cons: tip breaks easily/quickly, cheap quality
