Fast car charger and the best cables | The Test

But we are also in an era in which electronic devices are renewed at a very high speed and many of them, as well as their cables and chargers, have a very limited life. This means that, every so often, we end up with several of them in our hands or in a box, already useless or ready to pass on to a better life. But how to do it correctly?

It is very annoying when a cable stops working, or opens at one of the ends until the copper wires are left in the air, isn’t it? It is also a bit of a mess if you have to use a lot of them and they end up getting tangled. This, in addition to being impractical and aesthetic, can also lead to damage or bad shapes.

If you want to store them in a drawer after use, it is advisable to roll them up carefully and, if possible, always in the same way. This will prevent the joints of the connections from stretching. It is also not good for you to pull the charger cable to unplug or disconnect it. It is always better to hold it by the body, so that the weakest part of the cable or charger does not suffer. And, when storing them, always avoid nearby heat sources, as they can alter them or, in the worst case, seriously affect their operation.


important computer recyclingElectronic disposal isn’t just another chore on your to-do list; it’s a vital way to keep toxic waste out of our landfills and conserve precious natural resources.

If you’re getting rid of working computers in favor of something newer and faster, donation is probably your best option. Devices that are in relatively good condition can be refurbished and given a second chance at life. Plus, if you donate to a charity, you can even receive a tax deduction for your unwanted electronic devices.

You’ll find that many organizations, including local churches, schools and Scout troops host neighborhood events where you can drop off your box of old equipment and call it a day. Not only that, but you can even get a tax deduction in many cases.

trip to a recycling centerIt’s time to gather up all your old batteries and anything else you’ve been tossing aside instead of throwing it in the trash as a favor to Mother Nature.


All electronic devices are made of components that are not at all biodegradable, but are also, in many cases, highly polluting, such as batteries. That is why it is essential that we learn the importance of disposing of them properly.

If you are concerned about the environment, the best thing you can do is to finally sort out that drawer full of cables, cell phones that do not work and old chargers. Then, take everything you decide to throw away to the nearest clean point.

Through the website of the Organization of Consumers and Users (OCU) it is possible to locate the clean point closest to your home. It is also possible to check with your local council where you can take your electronic waste and, for larger appliances, such as computers and televisions, most councils have a collection service. To find out when it is possible to leave them on the street, you will need to speak to your local council and arrange a specific timetable.
