I’d been wondering about this weirdness for a while, and not just laptops, but other computer systems. Apparently, from what I’ve managed to find so far. they’re adapters that help convert voltage and not put too much power into the hardware too fast.
Okay, but at the same time, why does it seem to come in two pieces most of the time (at least, with my computers it always seemed to). I think it’s a bit weird that the cord leading from the computer to the adapter is one skinny cable (with this weird cylindrical thing near the computer end), the box, then a fatter, traditional flat wall outlet cord.
Why not have it one seamless cord? Can you replace half a cord if you are in a hurry packing and lose half the cord?
Sounds a bit complicated.
Very very weird.
But I did get a few articles to browse.
Even tired as I am, I can’t help asking weird questions, questions a four year old might ask (or you might in passing, but not rack your brain as hard as mine.
Time to put in some practice on the guitar, then head to bed.
Are there any weird looking technical parts or familiar stuff that you can’t figure out why it’s there and it’s bugged you?
