Laptop Charger Cord Ripped :( 2013-02-08 18:01:04 Reply

So, awhile ago the cord to my laptop charger ripped open (probably because of how many times it was bent back and forth).

Does anyone know if continuing to use it will harm my battery? The wire itself doesn't seem to be damaged too much and it still works.

pic enhanced to see more clearly. The lighting here is awful.

Stick it under water.

Buy a new charger. I recommend a Targus universal Power Adapter.

That won't work, you have to submerge it.

Would carbonated water work? Or should I play it safe and use the tap?

As long as the copper wires aren't ripped it should be fine.

Put some electrical tape around it.

yeah this, it doesn't fix it entirely, but it should last until you get your new charger.

It shouldn't harm your laptop. It should just work or not, but yeah, as Arnold Schwarzenegger would say, "get to the duct tape!"

I'll leave now.
