What is the flap on Macbook charger?

Answer: A: Flaps are for wrapping the cord around, however I don’t recommend doing that, it tends to wear out the cable as it’s too tight of a loop. Wrap the cable in a larger loop about twice the size or 6-8 inches across and use a couple of twist ties instead.
