Don’t wrap your MacBook charger that way

Roberto Baldwin for Wired:

The Internet got super excited this past week after a photo of a MacBook brick with both cables wrapped around it emerged. It’s a nice, compact way of keeping everything together. It’s also horrible for your power cord.

As soon as I saw that photo of the double-wrapped charger, I cringed. I’ve seen many damaged power adapters over the years and while some were genuinely defective, the vast majority were from neglect.
