Do You Know Why There Is a Cylinder At The End Of Your Charger?

What Is This Cylinder On Your Charger For?

While my laptop charger has never bugged me, but I always felt strange at times to see a bump in my laptop charger right after it connects to the laptop. I always use to wonder why the charger has a bump and what purpose does it serve?
You normally see these “bumps” on the mouse, keyboard and monitor cables in a typical computer system found in a home or office. You can also find them on power supply wires when a device (like a printer or scanner) uses an external transformer.
It turns out that these bumps are called ferrite bead. It may also be called blocks, core, rings, EMI (electromagnetic interference) filters, or chokes. A ferrite bead has the property of eliminating broadcast signals and prevents energy loss of the same type within the charger. This makes the charger much more effective and helps charge your computer more quickly. Their purpose is to reduce EMI and RFI (radio-frequency interference). These cylinders are responsible for stopping very large deviation of power over supply through the cable and power surges in currents that pass through the cable and prevent ‘choke’ within the wire to make it any further supply the current to the device. The blocking is most effective when it is near the source of the EMI, that’s why you will only find these ferrite beads near the end of the cables.
It also acts as a choke or inductor that blocks high frequency noise in electronic circuits. Ferrite bead employs the dissipation of high frequency currents in a ferrite ceramic to build high frequency noise suppression devices.
The bead is made up of ceramic compounds, derived from iron oxide and/or oxides of other transition metals. It helps to prevent the wire behave on over floating current like aerials. It slips over the cable when the cable is made, or it can be snapped around the cable in two pieces after the cable is made. The bead is encased in plastic — if you cut the plastic, all that you would find inside is a black metal cylinder. This metal wire can possibly serve as an antenna by absorbing or releasing any radiation while passing current around it.
The radiation released by the wires without the bead could cause interference with other electronic objects around them, which act as receivers of this radiation, for instance, causing noise in speakers. This phenomenon’s example can be seen when cell phones interfere with the signal devices such as radios and speakers, producing a recurring noise well known for electronic users.

Explainer: The nico-teen brain

Explainer: The nico-teen brain The adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine BY  TERESA SHIPLEY FELDHAUSEN 7:00AM, AUGUST 19, 2015 Nicotine (black triangle towards center left) tricks the nerve cell (neuron) into sending a message to release more dopamine (yellow dots). Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up. Nicotine can reach the brain within seven seconds of puffing on a cigar, hookah, cigarette or electronic cigarette.
The area of the brain responsible for emotions and controlling our wild impulses is known as the prefrontal c…

How to configure IDM extension for Chrome?Please note that all IDM extensions that can be found in Google Store are fake and should not be used. You need to install IDM extension manually from IDM installation folder. Read in step 2 how to do it.

1. Please update IDM to the latest version by using "IDM Help->Check for updates..." menu item

2. I don't see "IDM Integration module" extension in the list of extensions in Chrome. How can I install it?

Press on Chrome menu (arrow 1 on the image), select "Settings" menu item (arrow 2 on the image) and then select "Extensions" tab (arrow 3 on the image). After this open IDM installation folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Download Manager" by default, arrow 4 on the image) and drag and drop "IDMGCExt.crx" (arrow 5 on the image) file into "Extensions" page opened in…
