Quick and Easy Laptop's Power Plug Fix

Step 3: Cut the cord

So now we move on prepping the cords.

Generic AC Adapter
1. Cut the cord to desired length. Make sure to leave enough cord length so you could actually solder it to the original laptop cord. As for me, I left a little bit wire on the plug (one that goes to the outlet) side because I might need the adapter and reuse it in the future.
2. Insert the cord in the barrel.
3. Strip the wires, exposing the wires.

Laptop AC Adapter

2 Insert the cord in the tip part of the marker.
