How To: Use Your Apple Power Adapter as a Beer Opener

Posted in How To, iPad on 03/05/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


I’ve collected a fair number of Apple power adapters over the years, for everything from PowerBooks to iPads. I also enjoy drinking beer. It would be fantastic if there was some magical way to link these two things together – and there is! As OS X Daily reader @EvaZebra points out, Apple power adapters actually work extremely well as bottle openers!

Imagine my joy in learning that not only is the iPad power adapter a dual-purpose device, both of those purposes are especially well-suited to my interests! Of course, I wouldn’t actually recommend using your power adapter this way, as AppleCare certainly doesn’t cover “bottle opener” damage.

Still, if you’ve had a few beers, and you mistakenly grab your iPad’s power adapter instead of your bottle opener, things’ll probably work out just fine. Drink Different. Just sayin’…
