Breaking data cables and telephone cables is a common problem. If you are trying to prevent your data cable from breaking, this article would be helpful. Data cables are usually fragile. No matter whether you buy the cheapest or the most expensive data cable, breaking is just as common. Usually, it is not worth repairing the cable; it is therefore a total loss of money.
Prevent the data cable from breaking
To prevent the data cable from breaking, do the following:
- Do not pull the cable for any reason
- Do not use your phone while charging
- Keep your computer table clean
- Buy short cables or use elastics to tie them
- Use cable guards
In this article, we will discuss the most common causes of data cable disruption and possible preventative measures.
1) Do not pull on the cable for any reason
Some people have the habit of unplugging a charger by pulling on the cable. You must always pull the plug, not the cable. This is one of the most common causes of broken data cables.
2) Do not use your phone while charging
If you use your phone while the cable is plugged in, you may pull on the cable and break it. A good practice to avoid breaking data cables is to charge your phones when they are inactive. Also, keep them in a table that is not so messed up.
3) Keep your computer table clean
Many people break their data cables because they are tangled with other cables. This is common when you have connected many devices via cables on the same desktop. So, keep your computer table clean.
4) Buy short cables or use elastics to tie them
Most cables are entangled because they are longer than necessary. You will have to manage them accordingly.
Although it is always advisable to buy shorter cables, this is usually not a choice, as data cables are usually part of the device package. If you have a long cable, leave it largely attached in an elastic band and do not use more than the length you need.
5) Use cable guards
The cable usually breaks between the point located between the adapter (or plug) and the cord. The cable guards slightly move the movable seal upward in the cable and also increase the seal length, reducing the risk of breakage.
We hope that these safe practices will help you back up your valuable data cable.
