I’m tough on things. I don’t really mean to be, I just am. I have broken my mobile, cracked the screen on a tablet and dropped my laptop right off my lap. I was working on an article and it slipped right off my lap when I dozed off. The computer was fine, but I bent the tip of the power adapter to the point it no longer worked. I had to buy a universal laptop charger. I found one that had ports to plug in USB power cords to charge other devices at the same time. It is built kind of tough too.
The adapter has thicker cables. They don’t look wimpy at all. I refer to it as my militarized power adapter. Looks like something they would use. I know products can be made tougher, but you usually have to pay a fortune for the extra armor. Think about it. When you buy a mobile, you know you better get a tough case for it. People I know that don’t skin up their devices with some kind of protection are usually replacing them before too long. I got a weather and shock resistant case for my mobile. It has saved it from breaking many a time.
I don’t think that even I will ever have a problem in breaking this universal laptop charger I bought. I also like that it has surge suppression built in. We might live in a modern age, but our power grid voltage spikes and browns out all of the time. When those likes flicker or go out, your electronic devices are probably taking a hit with some bad voltage. My new charger protects against that. It was a really good deal too. Now I am only wondering why they are not like the standard maker of power adapters for computers for the manufacturers.
