Power Supplies: Why do they fail from time to time?

Question

Why are my "wall wart" power supplies failing? 

Answer

Power supplies typically fail due to the way they are handled. To ensure long life from your power supply, never wrap the cord tightly around the "box". This will cause stain on the cable where it joins the "box" which can cause breaks. This is the most common reason for power supply failure.
