Yeah but...if not in use why would there be current flow other than to tiny little resistors and even if them why? Heat means using battery!

There is a decent amount of electronics in that gadget, and the aluminum case is probably also the heat sink...

If it doesn't work out, I have another solution lined up for you...

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Gone hunting with Alec Baldwin and Dick Cheney. Back soon.

This is a chicken-egg conundrum because I only use it when I'm using it.

Ok Ok sorry for the confusion. This item has a magnetic deal that you could hook it to the laptop and leave it in place permanently whether using it or not. Of course I won't doing that now.

BTW "chicken" by divine intervention :shock:

I'm just being an obtuse smart-arse, sorry Billy. Serious answer is I only plug it in when I need to plug in a device so I never leave it hanging with nothing plugged in.
