My Laptop Charger Chord is Frayed.

One fine day you're about to charge your laptop when you notice your laptop charger chord is frayed. You aks yourself "This cant be. My charger  is supposed to be injury free." Well, guess what? While you were  plugging and unplugging your charger numerous times, your chord was taking a beating causing the chord to slowly wear and tear. 

A frayed charger chord can be quite dangerous because not only can does it damage your your system battery, but it can also  start a fire as well.  I'm gonna  do two things. First, I'm going to show you how to fix a frayed charger chord.We're going to need a few things: silicone sealant, and painter's tape.

Get Some Sealant

  • First get some  sealant( ointment) and insulate the charger. 
  • Make sure the sealant color matches that of your charger. But it's okay to use clear sealant as well. 
  • To protect the working area, spread out a strip of painter's tape on the surface with the sticky side facing down and placed the frayed part of the chord on top of the tape. 
  • Next squeeze out a liberal coating of sealant on the frayed part of the charger chord and massage the sealant into place. 
  • Please wear protective gloves if you have   sensitive skin. 
  • Then let the sealant sit in for an hour, maybe two until it hardens. Next, remove the chord from the tape and the tape from the table and you should have a repaired charger chord looking brand new.

The Second thing I'm going to do is to show you the alternative to fixing the frayed charger chord by yourself. If you are in a hurry to buy a new laptop charger and you don't have the patience to fix the frayed charger chord yourself, try buying a new charger from the following places: and
