It is important to properly use and store your AC adapter to prolong the life of the adapter and prevent damage. Your AC adapter and power cord are made of copper wire that is protected on the outside with a rubber coating. Excessive bending or tightly wrapping the cords may cause damage to the adapter which could potentially expose the internal wiring.
Tips to Care for your Adapter
- Keep your AC adapter away from water and other liquids.
- Route your AC adapter so it is not a trip hazard.
- Avoid bending the wires at the adapter or plug.
How to properly store your AC adapter and Power Cord

Important: Do not wrap the cord around the adapter as this may damage the adapter and expose internal wiring.
