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.
I had a laptop and my original adapter broke down, tryed to get another one but it was so expensive, untill I found this product on your website and decided to try it and it works just fine, even the name says travel adapter I use it all the time now.
