    1) How does it work?
    Man! You plug it to your computer and provided that you plugged the other end into the power supply you will get some "juice"!
    2) Why are there these 2 flip parts?
    Alright , this is not obvious, but these will allow you to wrap the attached to it cable around these two flip parts.
    3) Why the heave cord can be separated from the adapter?
    It is because you don't always need this extension!

  • Hi,
    Tue "ears" that flip up are for coiling (spindling) up the adapter wire.

    The heavy cord is detachable to allow you to change another plug in. The other plug is cordless and when you use the adapter with it the adapter goes directly to the plug. Both plugs are provided with the adapter.
