Default How loose is your power plug? - 11-01-2008, 03:18 AM

I never paid attention until now, but I noticed the power plug that plugs into the side of my Mini jiggles around a bit. Not jiggles like in and out (like a loose connection), but side to side, up and down, and such. Not a lot, but more than I've been used to with my 15" HP laptop.

How loose is yours?

Mine seems about normal for a type "M" coaxial power plug.

(paranoia kicks in as he rushes for his gear bag to check)
I use my stock power supply and a universal model with a 90-degree plug and both seem fine to me.

From device to device these things can differ. I don't think I'd sweat it unless it presents itself as a technical issue.

I don't know why, but initially I felt that the power plug was fairly loose. Now I am having no problems with it.
