Do your kids have access to electronics? Like a Kindle Fire or Nintendo DS or iPad? Well, my 10 year old does. We allow her to have electronic time in the evenings after homework and chores. She is a gamer at heart and we don’t want to deny her her passion. It could one day be her money maker. However, we do understand the importance of human and familial interaction as well as responsibilities; to her education as well as her chores in the home. We don’t want to raise her to be a lazy gamer who has no sense of self or responsibility.
Anyway I digress. Her future and who she will be is not the point of this post. The point of this post is to ask…DO YOUR KIDS GO THROUGH CHARGERS? OMG my kid broke 4 chargers in about 4 days!!!! How is this possible? This is was with her Kindle Fire.
So, a little back story (I guess you’d call it). We moved to Fort Irwin this summer. If you are not familiar with Fort Irwin it is in the middle of what feels like HELL!!! It is in the Mojave Desert of California and it is HOT!!! So, needless to say in the heat of the day my daughter was inside. So after she would read and play with her toys and stuff she would ask to have extra electronic time. I obliged because she is so responsible and helpful around the house.
Boy did that bite me in ass!!! She broke the iPad charger, and 2 micro usb chargers (using her kindle fire). One I found crushed in the recliner, one I found at our friends house, the mini portion just snapped off at the cord (well, I found 2 snapped at the cord but one was in the car) and the last I found bent at the micro mini usb end. Like the port thing was bent and would not straighten out to be used.
How is my child so hard on chargers? I do not understand!!!! Do you experience this?
So, I set out to find a charger that hopefully she would not be able to break so easily. I found these:
They are a nylon braided cord, durable and strong!!! My kid has not been able to destroy these!! They are also 10 feet long, which is awesome for the car!!!
The awesome color is also a bonus!!! My kid loves color (she gets it from her mama!) These things are awesome and I highly recommend them if you or your kids go through chargers!!! The price is great!! $10.99 for two 10 foot chargers that are durable and will last and long time!!!
