I recently paid £5 for something I could have bought for £2 but the alternative could have cost as much as £25.

Anyone who uses Nokia mobile phones will know that several months ago Nokia changed the size of the charger adapter plug.

Not so bad because you are usually supplied a new adapter with each new phone. Unfortunately you are not supplied with a replacement car charger so, because you’re old one no longer fits, you have to buy a new one.

The old car charger then just gets thrown in the bin which a complete waste of resources or, it sits in a drawer taking up space.

Also, should the new mains adapter fail for whatever reason (the plastic sheath split on mine exposing bare wires that also broke…) you have to go out and buy a replacement.

New mains chargers range in price from £25 at most branded mobile phone shops. £12.95 from John Lewis and as little as £3.98 from ebay.

But for as little as £2, you can buy a converter for your OLD Nokia mains charger to make it fit your new phone!

I paid £5 for one because I couldn’t wait for the postage but this converter will work for car chargers and mains chargers alike.
