Power Adapter tip fix

Message #1 - Posted 2006/02/27 - -oo00oo-

Power Adapters
I loved what they did with the power cord plug-in on the new "Powerbook Pro." I have had Kensington adapters break off inside before. Now it cannot happen. If it does happen to anyone by the way.

"Power off, unplug and remove your battery completely, until the object is removed through the hole that it went in." Any short means a new logic board. Use gravity, toothpicks, and very thin tweezers.

They copy the magnetic connectors from deep fryers that used it to prevent burns when somebody hit the cord. "-oo0(GoldTrader)0oo-" <aualloy@gmail.com> wrote in message news:1141089421.887890.270030@u72g2000cwu.googlegroups.com...
