Kensington’s AbsolutePower Laptop, Phone, Tablet Charger
by Mark R
This must be my day for reviewing chargers, as you can see two posts ago the mCube Slim 95. that one was 95 Watts of power, but the Kensington AbsolutePower Laptop, Phone, and Tablet Charger provides 100 Watts.
There is another big difference between the aforementioned two products. The mCube is good for charging two devices, while the AbsolutePower can do three.
One of them would be your laptop, and the AbsolutePower comes with “smart tips” that are compatible with laptops from Acer, ASUS, Compaq, Dell, Gateway, HP, Lenovo, Smasung, Sony, and Toshiba. There are also two built-in USB ports.
I found that only one of the USB ports is good enough for my smartphone when I tried it out for myself. You see, one of these USB ports is really just a micro USB port, but it includes a micro USB-to-USB port adapter. I found that attaching my smartphone to that adapter didn’t charge it, but the other USB port did. I have seen a lot of USB chargers that, for some reason, don’t work on smartphones. The important thing is that they are good for other gadgets like Bluetooth headsets.
So if you are the type who is in constant need of charging three things, you might want to get your hands on this one. You want it? Just go to the Kensington site and lay down $119.99.
