The battery trap

Why do I get the feeling that I am going to write this blog forever? It’s nice to have a companion of sorts , just to listen to my thoughts.

Printer ink and laptop batteries. What do they have in common?

  1. They are both overpriced
  2. Buying a knock-off can mess up your machine

I am now a victim of a fake battery. Fake batteries are like fake people. Three ways a fake battery can fuck you in the ass:

  1. It can fry your laptop
  2. It can fry your charger
  3. It might just stop working in a few months

So we end up buying original batteries. Who wins? You? Dell? The Duracell bunny? I believe all of us should approach the idea of buying fake batteries, the same way as lending money to people. Only do it if you are willing to lose it. Randomthoughtbeam out.
