Many of these adapters have a period of life, that after some use they simply start to go bad, normally the laptop power cords are really huge and can have from 6 to 12 feet or even bigger, we tend to use all that chords by plugging our computers to the wall and leaving them plugged. We walk around while they are plugged and we are also always stretching the cord causing the end of it that is plugged on the wall to acquired some damage within time.

What happens after some time is that these laptop power cords will simply give in after a while and not function anymore, that’s when a replacement laptop power adapter comes in handy.
