About this project

THE PROBLEM: Type "Magsafe" into Google image search and you'll find there are more than a few people who have had issues with their Apple power adapter. Making sure your cords stay safe, don't tear, and stay bundled during travel are prevalent issues.

THE SOLUTION: We invented and patented the Wrap_Up - a cover for your power adapter which provides a means to wrap up the cords dangling around your bag and also protects them from stress and fatigue cuts over time.

THE DESIGN: The Wrap_Up comes in two parts which clip and un-clip directly to your 85 or 60 watt power supply for your MacBook computers.  It will be molded in a strong plastic so it will withstand the abusive environment of your laptop bag without breaking.  

THE FEATURES: Below you can see what features come with the Wrap_Up.  These include:

  • Convenient location to wrap the larger cord
  • Easy access to the small cord's wrapping hooks
  • Sturdy strain relief for the small cord
  • Secure cord clips for tightly wrapped cords 
  • Wrapped adapter still plugs directly into the wall
  • Travel adapters can be used without taking off the product
  • Made in the USA

CALL TO ACTION!!: Help us bring this idea to life.  For more information, check out our website at thinklabsdesign.com!  Let us know what you think! 

THE REWARDS: Below is a visual description of all the rewards. Get the warp up below retail price by backing this project. 

Thanks for all the blog, media and social networking coverage!!

macgasm.net - "This is a brilliant idea, and I can’t believe Apple hasn’t thought of this before."

@suebmoe - "THANK you, thinklabs for solving my biggest travel headache!!! I just backed thinklabs Wrap Up"

Cultofmac.com - "...the junction between the cord and the chager itself is still pathetically weak. So weak it makes a sick kitten look like Chuck Norris." "Thinklabs’ Wrap Up is an effective solution to this."

shawnblanc.net - "Looks like a clever solution to the MacBook's power-adapter-cable-wrap-up conundrum."
