Why Apple, Why?

IMG_3160

I have two iPads (a regular and a mini), 2 MacBook Pros (1 x 15″ and 1 x 17″) and have had the last three iPhones. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM has needed at least two chargers.  My 15″ Macbook is on its third.

I have used other brands of phone and computer and none of them had this problem. I find it hard to believe it is just me? Or is it?

  1. FWIW, I’ve had several MacBooks with this type of connector and never had any issues with them…..wonder if it has to do with either how you coil up the cable when not using or transporting it in a bag that somehow puts pressure on the connection?

  2. Cables and plugs/sockets are always the weak link in any design. Designers try to avoid them were possible.

    The Macbook charger leads are repairable, but it’s not an easy job to do.

    If you plug that in carefully is it still working? If it is, get some ‘Heat Shrink Sleeving’ and put it over the joint and further down the cable. This will help to protect the internal wires and stop it getting worse.

    To put it on you simply cut the sleeving to length slide it on the cable and then use your hair drier on a gentle heat to warm up the sleeve and it will shrink on to the cable. Make sure you rotate the cable so that all of the sleeving reduces in size not just one side.

    You might be able to find a local supplier that will just sell you a single length of it.

    I hope that helps.
