Tether plastic caps to Apple's laptop plugs
Authored by: bedouin on Jul 29, '06 12:16:00AM

Whenever I'm moving my laptop the power cord is wrapped around the brick's holder and the adapter fastened to the wound up cord via the small piece of rubber provided.

I'm not sure how one would smash the adapter while it's in a bag and wrapped around the brick, and I doubt that measly piece of plastic would stop any serious damage in the first place.

I do keep these plastic pieces though, simply to add to resell value psychologically (i.e., "Wow, he even kept those things! Probably a was a careful [read anal] owner.")

The plastic cap is rather rugged, actually.

Trust me, I've seen many power connectors that got squished in bags (I've been a certified Apple Technician for the last 2.5 years). It happens more than you'd think and often kills the adapter.
