What is a Laptop Charger & Adapter?

A laptop charger, which is called an adapter, is an electronic device that converts Alternating Current(AC) into Direct Current(DC) and the electricity can be charged into the laptop. Without it, the high electricity will ruin your laptop and even pose a threat to users' lives.

Commonly the laptop charger or adapter is equipped with the device itself, along with 2 cables. One cable is attached to the adapter and outlet on the wall, the other one is to link the adapter to the laptop. And you will have to package them properly before you plan to have work outside or some stuff that requires your laptop along with you.

By using the "Rodie Wrap" trick, you can protect your charger cable and extend it using lifetime. This method is famous in the audio, video, and media cable industries.

It asks you only to involve coiling your charger cables, and alternating the direction of the loop with each coil. And after you finish the coiling, you can use the tie to prevent the cables from unraveling. The "Rodie Wrap" doesn't create any harsh bends to your adapter cable, so your cable will not be broken or torn. Also, the method can easily uncoiled without creating any twists or knots in your cables if you have a long charging cable.

You can use the simple coil method and don't alternate the direction of the loop. It can also protect your cable, it goes faster and easier operated. But you might need to handle the knots and twists.

The cable attached to Laptop Charger

If your laptop adapter has attached a cable that can not be removed, you can also use the "Rodie Wrap". You can start it at the end of the charger, with the adapter in your hand, and hold the cable like this:

And then you can coil the cable like before. When you finish it, you can use a Velcro tie on the charger to keep the cable with the adapter. You can also use a long tie to attach the cable and charger so that it can be placed better.

But if you still want to use a quick method to coil the laptop charger, make sure the connection part between the cable and charger is straight without bending it. You can do this by saving a little period of cable before you coil the laptop charger.

Points You Need to Know

When you want to properly package the laptop charger, there are some points you will have to be cautious about.

  1. Please do not twist or bend the cable next to the charger or adapter. This part is particularly weak, and it can't bear too much stress. If the connection parts are damaged, your charger will commonly get hotter when you are charging. And the resistance caused by damage will burn the cable out. So you have better leave some centimeters before coiling. Make sure the connection is secure.

  2. Do not fold or bend the laptop charger which has a cable of less than 15 cm, the first coiling or folding is so much more important. You need to leave enough length before you package it. If you coil or fold it too close to the charger, it can be easily broken by your force, so watch out for it.
