5.0 out of 5 stars Dell power adapter problems solved, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this adapter for a Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop after two years of problems with the power adapter supplied with the machine.

As many others have found, Dell's own power adapters seem quick to develop an intermittent problem which means that they are often not recognised by the laptop. This then results in the battery failing to charge and an error message saying that the laptop will run on reduced power.

After putting up with this for far too long, trying some of the more exotic fixes to be found on the internet, using a variety of registry cleaners to try and address slow processing speeds and being put off by stories of adapters catching light, I decided to take the plunge and order a replacement unbranded adapter, the Dell ones being three or four times the price.

I have now had this Anker adapter for nearly a month and it has proved more than worth the investment. It worked immediately and charged the battery from flat in about three hours.

This would have been enough but it has also given the 1720 a completely new lease of life because it is now operating on full power. It boots up in about a third of the time, is up and running immediately from hibernation and launches Chrome launches in a flash, as opposed the crawl I had become used to. Frame rates for online gaming have gone from unplayable to game winning. All this without any other changes being made to the laptop.

All in all a great purchase - and it comes with an 18 month guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy, 23 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have just been reminded by Amazon that I bought my first one of these in Dec 2009. Have been used it regularly since at home in the house and the garden and in my car (don't have an MP3 connection to the car stereo). Great sound, great battery life and bought a second one for my wife to go with a Sansa Clip MP3 player (also a great buy) and about to buy a third one of each for my daughter. "Don't think twice - it's more than alright..." (apologies to Mr Dylan)
