hey i accidently spilled water on the charger of my macbook , i didnt notice it until today , i can see that there was a short circuit on the charger since the plug in its burned, the charger is working but the light on the charger doesnt works at all , if i plug in the charger the light just goes green for a second and then it shuts off or goes to a lighter green color, anyone has any idea if its dangerous to my macbook using the charger?, also the light of the charger stays on even if not plugged to the computer
thanks

I would not use it, if it shorts out the connection on the Macbook its over $200 to replace that.

Hey man, I just had the same problem. Even worse, I just bought a new cord recently. I just can't afford it, I can't believe I ruined another cord.

You could try looking on craigslist or eBay for a cheaper used cord.
