Internal wires came exposed after only 3mos of normal use
on January 22, 2015
I bought this as a longer replacement for the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 stock 2-slot non-polarized universal power cord. I was seduced by the high rating and low price.
The problem is that there is no protection support for articulated bending on the female end of the cable. Shouldn't have been surprising to me, then, when the internal wires came exposed after only 3 months of normal use! Tried taping up with electrical tape. Bad idea. Only gave the cord 1mos more of life before it went up in smoke. Do NOT waste your money on this product!
As a replacement, I just went to Best Buy and picked up the Insignia 6' 2-Slot Nonpolarized Power Cord for $7.99 (not available for purchase on Amazon at the time of writing). This cord DOES provide articulated bending and appears to be of generally higher quality. Hopefully it lasts longer than 3 months!
