Power brick notebook stand

Not sure if this is a good idea or not. This guy added Velcro to the bottom of his notebook PC and the edge of the power supply unit to create a simple stand. There are obvious issues with the high heat of many power bricks and the shortening of the power cord by half. But I guess under some circumstances this would be a quick and dirty way of creating a stand.

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who does this. This is actually really useful and a great way for someone who doesn’t want to spend money on a stand to utilize what they already have.

    Its better to do this, regardless of heat, than putting a notebook on carpet. The feet sink in, and it blocks the ventilation holes completely. This prevents it.
