Tablet charger plug frailty - a tip

  SparkyJack 12:02 11 Mar 2015

I have ordered a new charger for the tablet,my second because of the cable/plug joint fails. It seems the fiexing of the cable to plug posts in 2.5mm plug are not secure enough the sustaian repeated flexing when inserting into the tablet power socket.

I have resolved to stiffen/protect the plug shroud by fixing cover it the insulation from a scrap of mains flex.

I've strengthened cable/plug joints (e.g. laptop power connectors) by using self-amalgamating tape. Does a good job if you apply it well.
