1.0 out of 5 stars Not new!, 12 May 2014

Kensington Power Adapter with USB Sony by Kensington
This is basically a generic charger, with a separate Sony connector to attach to the end. It seems durable and well made. There's a switch to flick between 14-17 and 17-21V and it all works fine on my laptop at least.

This means that rather than leaving it by the plug (on the floor or desk) it ends up getting in the way - in my case dangling off the far end of the table I'm working off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality beaters, 27 Mar 2010
