    [@cayci] Okay, agreed. That’s what I am talking about. But a Black felt tip on Black plastic doesn’t help. That’s why I recommend using the cheap white fingernail polish to give a good space to write when you DO use the marker.

    Unnerstan’ Stan?

    [@Harry] Yes, you have. There’s a 120v plug on one end of an electrical cord, then there’s a 3 inch x 1 inch x 2 inch black plastic box (brick) and then a wire comes out of that and a plug for your PC/device is on the other end. These black bricks NEVER have good identifying words on them. I’ll bet that I have 25+ in a box in my closet. They all look alike. Hence my white fingernail polish trick.

    Okay, here’s the secret to HOW TO.

    I use a small dot of white fingernail polish on the TOP side of the plug. Here’s more uses for the white “girly” stuff. I paint a 1×1 inch white space on all black power bricks. When it dries overnight, I label them with a fine point magic marker. Everything that is black plastic in my house gets the treatment. You can thank me later.

    He was right the first time, just pay attention to the USB logo as it’s always on “top”. With some cables it can even be used like braille in the dark or behind cramped desks.
