blueis300 said: Have 2 different Toshiba laptops I could use this for that take 90 watts. But does amps matter?These chargers put out about 19 volts. Amps = watts/volts = 90W/19V = 4.7 amps.
Find out if this charger is safety certified by UL or CSA by checking the label for a number in the form Exxxxxx or Lxxxxx because you don't want a charger that certified, not just for the sake of safety but also for quality and reliability. Non-certified chargers usually don't have overvoltage protection (could let your laptop be damaged) or any line filter (could produce buzz sound through computer speakers, radio, or TV and let through more surges) and are typically made with junk brand capacitors (early failure).

This is the compact charger. Has only a 7" cord, the brick part plugs into the outlet so may be an issue if you have to use a surge protector. And the ends aren't 90 degrees so in some cases can stress the power port on the computer.
Still a great deal to get a laptop back up and running. Also has another port on cord to charge cell phones etc.

Got ours today. The cord is too short to reach the wife's chair - we'll need to augment it with an outlet strip. Also, the included mini-USB tip is useless to us, as all of our portable devices now use micro-USB. Neither were surprises; both were well documented reviews. For the money, it's a decent charger.
