Black Power

“It is in the darkness that one finds the light” Meister Eckhart

Simply Black

“I fell in love with black; it contained all colours. It wasn’t a negation of colour…Black is the most aristocratic colour of all…You can be quiet, and it contains the whole thing” Louise Nevelson

If you notice the charger of any laptop has three parts

  1. Power cord connecting the AC power outlet.
  2. A rectangular box that handles AC to DC (Stepdown transformer)
  3. A cable with a cylindrical shaped bump near the end of the cable where it connects to the laptop.

This cylinder blob is the DC adopter (Ferrite Bead) that helps in blocking the radio wave emission from the cable or nearby objects and helps in charging the laptop properly.

Can you answer me why the power charger (Power Brick) of the laptops is always black?

I don’t know the reason.

My basic knowledge tells me that the black colour absorbs more heat. If that is the case, is not power charge gets heated up too early and can cause a fire?

Readers can help me as to why the charger along with the cable is black.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Perhaps black is cheaper to produce.
