Really Hot Plastic

Did you know the little black box that is connected in-between where you plug the power cord into the wall and where the plug goes into the laptop gets really hot when it accidentally gets trapped under a pillow that is being laid on by a dog? Did you know the smell of really hot plastic is a little disconcerting coming from under a pillow being laid on by a dog? Did you know when the little black box connecting the cords together gets really hot and smells like really hot plastic the cord stops working and you begin to loss power as no more electrictity is flowing?

Yeah, well I do know... maybe I will see you tomorrow.

I'm thankful to say I haven't "smelled that smell" but glad you could make a post of it. That's the power of a positive pen. lol :)

I'll keep this in mind when I finally do get my own laptop ;o); although, I'll probably have different issues...like trying to find my plug because some little man has used it as a tattoo maker.

He did that with my car's cell phone plugger ;o)...can't imagine where that idea ever came from....

The other thing not to do, is to try and use an extension cable when it's still wound up. Same smell! :)
