Very good universal charger
I received the Targus APM69US today. I was a little nervous about purchasing it since I could not find a single review anywhere. It is a very new device. The reason I wanted it is because I have a Kensington 33197 and I could not find a tip for my new HP HDX16t laptop. I also have a Dell 610 laptop. The charger as received is exactly as described on the Targus web page. It has multiple tips that can charge just about anything. I tried it on the Dell laptop, and it charged it as I was using it. I tried it on the HP HDX16t and it charged it just fine. However, there is a charging light where the charger plugs in. With the HP charger, the light turns on as soon as it is plugged it, and a chime sounds. With this Targus charger, the light does not come on and the chime does not sound. But it charges just fine. Even as I am using it. I charged my IPOD with no problem. I charged devices that use the mini USB plug and they work fine. I am charging the HP laptop and the IPOD simultaneously with no problem. It is a well designed and solid charger. I hope it lasts a long time with no problems. The reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because of the charge light on the HP laptop. Not sure what that is all about, but it does seem to work just fine. I have not tried the DC (Car) charger as yet. I will update the review after I try it. I now have to order a micro USB tip for my palm PRE phone.
