I have a box - honestly, I probably have several boxes - full of unmatched power bricks. You know those unseemly, ungraceful black hunks of plastic that fit so uncomfortably in power strips and surge protectors. For me, their size was always the second worst thing about them. The bigger problem is that they nearly never say what gadget they belong to. Once the gadget and block separate you're in real trouble. Soon, you'll be like me, with boxes full of orphaned transformers.
The solution is the Sharpie Metallic Fine Point pen. When you're unboxing your favorite new gadget just write on the transformer what product it came with. The silver ink stands out clearly on the typically black surface of the standard power brick. Now, even if they get separated, you'll know what goes with what.
