Lots of broken chargers in Nicaragua

What seems to be a lesser-common problem in the other deployments I
have seen seems to be quite common here: chargers are breaking due to
damage to the cable and the point where the cable enters the big green
plug that goes into the power socket.
Although these problems seem to be due to carelessness with the
chargers, it would certainly help this deployment if the units were
stronger. This is a significant problem here.
A project partner here has been able to repair almost all of the
broken units by reinforcing the cables and sometimes swapping out the
components inside the charger unit itself. I'll send in more details
once they arrive.
