The cost of double-winding your MacBook power brick

Last week, I linked to a tweet that showed a picture of a double-wrapped MacBook power brick. This tweet (and others like it) spawned a ton of discussion, both pro and con, on wrapping your brick this way.

The article linked by the headline is Wired’s take on the issue. After reading all the pro and con, I’m going back to my old way, which was softly winding the thinner cord without bending the attachment closest to the brick, then very loosely winding the power cord, with the last wind going over and under to keep the winds together.
