Stop Your Laptop's Power Brick From Slipping With A Rubber Band

If your laptop cable isn't long enough to sit the power brick on the floor, redditor agentdax5 has a great trick for keeping it on your desk: just wrap a rubber band around it.

The rubber band will keep it from slipping and sliding around, letting you put it wherever you want without fear it will fall off the desk (and yank the rest of the cable with it). Plus, when you take it with you, you can wrap the cables under the rubber band (if your power brick doesn't already have a built-in mechanism for this).

    I really wouldn't advise it with the earlier MacBook chargers, they get quite bloody hot, hot enough to potentially deform plastic/rubber.
