    ...better off within it ?

    Could you please tell me what this sentence means "you are better off within it anyway"?

    The full sentence was replied to me by a friend in a forum I joined, I asked for the experience to use laptop adapter, and one of his sentences is "If it gets hot then you are better off within it anyway" , I guess that is something related to switching the adapter off but I'm not sure (especially about the word 'within' in the sentence).

    Thank you!

    He's used the wrong word. It should read 'without'.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
