Did you have any idea that there was a “correct” way (and a wrong way) to wrap a MacBook’s charging cord? Come on, be honest now. I didn’t know – and I’m the Mac Lawyer!
Of course, I learned the hard way that after several years of use and wrapping with the willy-nilly method, cords would fray and eventually break. Surely, that’s not the way Apple intended it to happen.
Last week, I learned the “right” way to wrap a power cord, as shown in the image at right. The key is to use the collapsable set of clips on the side of the adapter, which are not just for decoration.
Using this method will make your cord last a whole lot longer (and simultaneously enable you to amaze your friends with your brilliance). You too can learn how to do the magic MacBook wrap in three step-by-step GIFS at Gizmodo’s “You’ve Been Wrapping Your MacBook Charger Wrong This Whole Time“.
