My Continuing Battle with the Elago 2.5mm to 3.5mm Adapter

Previously, I wrote about this adapter, and how it almost broke

my phone. I may have to amend that by removing the word almost.

My cordless phone still works intermittently. The tip broke off,

and now makes contact with the jack. This really bothers me.

This two dollar adapter (supposedly on sale for $14) may have broken my

phone. Now I will have to spend money on a new cordless phone with

talking caller ID, and a $150 or so phone patch to do this properly. At

least it will cause me to use it less and reduce my exposure to

radiation. Remember to stress-test your adapters. If it breaks, throw it

out. Cheap solutions rarely work as planned. They piss me off!
