The device cable plugs into the AC adapter, next to the voltage selector. This cable has two distinct ends, which are shaped differently to avoid confusion when plugging everything together. There is a square end which plugs into the "brick" for the adapter, and a round end where the tips go for the devices you need to power. Each tip has two prongs on them, and a groove in the back which makes the tip only plug in one way, to prevent connecting it incorrectly. The two prongs slide into the receiver on the device plug and that is all it takes you are ready to go. As mentioned before, there are eight tips that plug into the device cord, depending on the model of device that you are using it to power. Refer to the chart below for the compatibility for a wide array of devices.
To make transporting easier and to keep everything together for later use, Thermaltake has included an nice carry bag that is designed to keep everything in it securely and ready to go at a moments notice. It is made from tough materials, ensuring that the bag does not fall apart just when you needed to use it and find out that parts have been lost. On the front of the case, there is the Thermaltake logo. You can see how everything fits inside the case to keep it all secure. The size is compared next to an Acer Aspire One 10.1 inch Netbook.
With everything connected and the correct tip plugged in, you can see the Thermaltake Toughpower Ultra Slim 65W AC Adapter plugged into the Acer Aspire One Netbook here and ready to go.
Now that we have seen the device, let's move on to the specifications and then the testing of it.
