Needs a fan – 120W Universal Laptop Power Supply (15V~24V DC Output/100~240V AC) Reviews

Pros:
I was able to get this power supply to work with my 15.4 inch Toshiba Satellite. The tips are easy to attach. I have used other universal power supplies where both leads on the tips were the same size and it is very difficult to tell which way to attach it. That is not the case with this product as one lead is bigger than the other and it will only attach one way. I do like that the cord that goes from the wall to the main unit is a universal power cable.
Cons:
The build quality is poor. It heats up very quickly even with a minimal load. I was using it as a backup charger and it burned out after the third or fourth use.
Other:
This power supply either needs an internal fan or a much better heat sync.
Bottomline:
If you buy this, only use it for short periods and check the temperature often.
