The USB cables that come with Apple devices (like the iPhone and iPad) they are not well known for their durability. In fact, many people complain that after a few months, the ends begin to break with use. I personally never had a cable like this broken and I believe it depends a lot on how the user takes care of the cable. But as many people suffer from this problem, we bring the solution suggested by our reader Sandro Dukta. ?
Do you know those retractable pens that you usually get as a gift? Yes, Sandro used her inner spring and made a cable protector himself. Check out the step-by-step how-to:
Step 1: open the pen and remove the inner spring. Make sure you don’t want the pen anymore, as it will be unusable.
Step 2: secure the top of the spring at the beginning of the cable.
Step 3: start to wrap the rest of the spring around the cable so that it is wrapped around it. Do this until the entire spring is used.
Step 4: if necessary, use a tool to wrap the spring tips, which have more resistance.
There, your cable is more protected now, lasting longer. ?
