    "gently skipping over the fact that power cables for mobile devices are very frequently wound tightly, twisted, and pinched in order to pack them into bags for transport"


    Yes, and it often causes them to get damaged. I've not had any issues with the two I've got but appreciate the gesture regardless.

    " not any solder later"

    I'll do my soldering whenever I damn well want. Soldering should not have a curfew.

    Pretty handy that, my SP2 is a bedside toy pretty much, and it'd be useful having a 2nd power cable so it could occasionally be relocated to be a secondary screen for game apps and such. I remember looking to see how much replacement power supplies/chargers were and it was something like £40, or a fraction of the price for the asian knock-offs and im not trusting those. Seems like i couldnt even trust the £40 one either, if they're having to replace them all!
