35 Great design, but serious QA problems. PROs: Cheap (where I got it, refurbished)! Fuse. 100 watts! That's enough to charge a big laptop while it's running, and more, however...CONs: I noticed that if my car is OFF, the unit doesn't put out enough juice (using my 1-year-old 12 V car battery) to simultaneously run and charge my laptop via its 85-Watt adapter. (Perhaps not such a bad thing to pull less juice if it doesn't seem the battery isn't up to the job; I'd rather not have a dead battery!)More importantly: The USB & AC connectors are too close together. And did I say it's LOUD? It's LOUD.Wow, this is loud. I chatted with Targus to ask if mine is defective. Even on a cold day when I don't have anything pulling current from it, the fan runs fast AND *loud* AND moves very little air. I've only used it for a few hours. Targus' Kathleen said this issue would be covered as a warranty repair under the 1 year warranty. Some reviewers elsewhere say it's readily covered up by a radio, but I and others disagreed.Here are some CORRECTED/additional SPECIFICATIONS, with commentary:Small and (fairly) lightweight form factor, ideal for travel (It's like a modern laptop adapter, not the old, very dense & heavy metal and wire "brick" transformers of yore.)Exterior Dimensions: 1.06 x 2.88 x 4.75-inches (H x W x D, approximate, main unit ONLY; does not include the cord or packaging.)Weight: 10 oz. w/cord, NOT really 7 oz. as claimed.Output: 60 HzInput: 12 - 16V --- 15A max.USB output (DC power only): 5 Vdc 0.5A (= 2.5 watts-not nearly enough to, for example, charge an iPad while in use via this USB port)Fitted with a spade type 15A fusePower/Fault LED indicatorConnector type: 3-prongIncludes Hypertronics to CLA Auto/Air adapter with:DC In-Auto connector (standard cigarette-lighter style)DC In-Air connector (common on airplanes)Warranty: Limited 1 year (if bought new!)
15 One to go for a while, then died, 3 more DOA This is a slick product but quality is abysmal. Had one for a few months, which I used once or maybe twice, then a few months later it was dead; recently I have purchased 3 more, one after the other, and all were DOA. I'm done! Each one indicated it had power-- light, fan-- but would not actually send any power to my netbook... Very frustrating.
