I'm a one-man electronic waste generator

It started when I wanted to check my blood pressure and I wasn't sure the tester batteries were fully charged. So I went looking for the voltage adaptor unit that came with my unit. OF COURSE I found all these other adaptors first! 

And this isn't the whole crop -- there are 12 others that are still plugged in and working. What baffled me was I have had a clean-out in the past year or so, and I thought their numbers were reduced. Do they breed, like clothes hangers, when you are not watching them???

I decided to mark the voltage in large white numbers so I wouldn't need a bright light and flashlight to see the voltage rating of the adaptor. 

Now, should I put them back in the drawer and have this feeling of impotent fury another time, or rather dump them all in the recycling bin at the local Goodwill store?


PS - actually this turned out to be quite soothing and a satisfactory exercise - my blood pressure was lower when I checked it on the adaptor than earlier with the batteries  - what does that mean?

I went thru the same exercise over the wnkd. Phones cameras chargers battery packs adapters and what not. Strange how they accumulate over the yr. [nt]

and each time we move house we don’t have the time to sort them. Pretty sure that we can get rid of 80% +.
 Thx for reminding me to do finally do it next weekend.


Your post reminds me I need to get one of those Omron BP Monitors.

Thank you smile


Works great but I can't find the adjustment screw to lower the readings to a doctor-pleasing level 😉 [nt]

I have that many, probably more, chargers/adapters in a box at home with no idea what they go to. [nt]
