Major Disappointment

Date:March 30, 2014
"I acquired two of these adapters in Jan. 2013. One is dead after 14 months - really??. Never had an adapter fail me before."

Going back to the stone age

Cons: Weight, size, portabiltiy, price
"This adapter is crazy. I have never had an AC adapter this large and heavy. There are NO alternatives either so think before you buy the W Series"

It's a paver

Date:April 30, 2012
"It functions well, but from a human factors point of view, it's a brick. The engineering team could do better. Slow the charging to a trickle when running the machine if you have to and make it an optional accessory, but please give us a smaller, lighter power supply alternative to this one."
