Introduction: IPhone Power Cord Protection With Shrink Tubing

About: Be limited only by your imagination.

This simple Instructable describes protecting the iPhone power cord with shrink tubing.

Step 1: What You Are Trying to Prevent

The iPhone is a significant investment but the power cord is surprisingly vulnerable to kinks and tears. To protect against this I applied a two inch length of shrink tubing. This serves to reinforce the collar.

Step 2: Slip on the Tubing and Apply Heat to Shrink It

I use a heat gun but you can use a soldering iron or even just use a lighter to shrink the tubing. The tubing shrinks into place and holds fast.

Step 3: The Finished Project

You can see the finished product here again. I've found this much more durable.

The other advantage is that my cords are color coded so I can quickly find the right cord for each device.
