Stable and Colorful Notebook Power Connector With Sugru

About: Hackerspace Budapest

A girl in our hackerspace had a worn ThinkPad power connector, and decided to improve it. First, red Sugru was used as a protective cover, formed in a 1mm thick rectangle, and the power connector was covered by it like rolling up a pancake. Finally, yellow Sugru was used to make it more colorful, first shaped like a string, then applied like a screw thread.
