    Wow your out here schooling mechanics with things they never even thought of. No one will ever be able to argue with science and factual evidence. Having that said people will still believe what they want even if there wrong. Common sense is not so common anymore.

  8. I got a 2A charger from the dollar tree and it works fine. I’ve been using it for 2 years and no problems so far.

  9. this guy is a fruit cake

  10. Just recently discovered your channel and I just wanna say I love you! 😂
