That’s a problem if you’re charging a device without the right power source, because it can damage your battery over time.

    Enjoy watching your show. Just wanted to suggest NOT recommending lead anchors for attaching to brick, and instead using something safer and more eco-conscious like plastic. This was referenced in your recent “Win Danny contest takes Today’s Homeowner to California.”

    The construction industry has worked hard over the years to remove lead from paint, roofing materials, plumbing, electrical, you name it, to keep homeowners safe and to keep toxic materials out of landfills and water supplies.

    Thanks!
