    The two wings are for you to wind up your charger's cable onto them.

  • I would recommend you use them to wind your cable around, and leave the first coil loose, because otherwise you will eventually fray the cable at this vulnerable point.

  • It's to coil the cable around whilst storing/travelling, along with the little clp on. The cable to secure the coil

  • It is, as well as an aid to wrap the cable around a very helpful thing to grip when trying to remove the charger from an extension cable.

  • I do not bend the cable so much. You do not need to use it for anything. But if the wall socket is tight, and your fingers are actually slippery, you can use it to pull out the adapter a bit more easily.
