    Guess that doubles up as a useful kidnap / torture kit.

    Win, win.

    Good point. Returning the original crappy charger to Dixons seems like the right thing to do now you mention it.

    I hadn't considered the torture element; stick with the original tape for laptop, elephant tape for the defective charger return.

    They are called guitar strings, not wire.

    I use XL120s on my electric and EJ lights on my acoustic, but I always have a set of XL chromes with my roll of carpet and shovel.

    Ah, no, I'm not talking about strings. I'm talking about the wires. When the waxed wires melt due to overload, it really gets the message through.
