From the submitter:
"My laptop charger only works if it's bent in a gentle curve. So I bent some Q-tips and taped them on for support. Works like new."
Meatpuppet submitted with comment: Out of state and forgot the camera charger. One cell phone charger, two paper clips, two pieces of a stir straw and we are in business!
Charging the bananaphone, perhaps?
Plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in, plug it in...
