this worked wonderfully for my laptop. I actually had my puppy chew through two of these and needed a replacement and this ft the bill. Have had laptop for 6 years now.
I purchased this laptop charger as a replacement for the original OEM charger that broke. I have a few other Dell chargers that will keep the laptop running as long as it is plugged-in, but I get the message "Plugged in, but not charging" with those other Dell power cords. So, the battery never actually charges and you cannot use it unless it's plugged in (pretty much making the laptop a desktop PC and non-mobile). With this cord I still get the "Plugged in, not charging" message. Otherwise, the cord works and is fine. It does have the hexagon/octagon shape that the Dell 1545 requires which is good.
