This goes for controllers, ac adapters, etc...

If you do that, it will internally break eventually (and you wonder why your controller loses connection or ac adapter loses its charge randomly...)

Instead, if you want to store it but not let it make a mess, tie it around the way you got it when you bought it, it could be around your fingers and then tie it with a loose rubber band (or that little piece of plastic it was tied around when you bought it assuming you didn't throw it away).

I use hair elastics. Not only are they good at wrapping up cords, but the metal part can be used as button depressors when trying to do multiplayer stuff like certain Little Big Planet sections. Hair elastics. Not just for women anymore.

I gotta lay off the games. They're starting to affect my work performance.
I keep trying to 100% my job, and aim for meaningless achievements.

Thank you for posting this to a handheld that does not require wires.

EDIT: Except the charger of course, but why would you wrap that?

lol this

I use hair clips now so I use my hair ties for wires and whatnot. Great for this multitude of network and power cables I've amassed over the years.

Charger


It's a garbage charger if it breaks from that. Aside from that, I've done it quite often with earlier handhelds and nothing ever happened. My DS charger only broke because one of my dogs chewed through the cable.

Yeah, I always hear people complaining that their $100 headphones are broken. 95% chance its from bending wires
