What to do if your power cords have been pinched or bent

You find that your power cord got caught under a shelf, what do you do?

Option 1: Throw the power cord away.

Once an electrical cord has been pinched or bent, it won’t repair itself, the electricity will always have problems flowing through the compromised cord.

Option 2: Reuse the power cord.

Cut the cord and use it as a handle for a bag or a cool bracelet.

Option 3: Continue using the power cord by keeping it plugged in.

And have your house burn down.
