This power plug is serving as a duplicate power plug that I can use at my office. I have been using it for a few weeks now. Here are some of my observations:
1. The plug connection into the tablet is longer than the receptacle on the tablet itself. There is about 1/8" of the metal connector that sticks out past the edge of the plug on my tablet. It is mostly a design issue it seems. I dont use this plug very frequently for this fact.
2. After being plugged in for some time, I have noticed an intermittent whine coming from the plug. It havent noticed any unintended operation and not seen any smoke or sparks or excessive heat but I will be keeping an eye on it while I use it just in case.
Other than those items, the unit functions as intended, and charges my tablet appropriately. I would say that for what I spent on it, it does what it is supposed to.
We had this charger for 1 day and the metal piece that goes into the tablet busted off...inside of the hole. Luckly we were able to get the metal piece out.
I was worried at first when I plugged this into my Acer tablet because it stuck out almost 1/4in, but after leaving it plugged in all night my tablet was at full charge and it's never failed to do what it's made for
