    You should ask it back. Or buy a new charger?

    Make sure you turn the display brightness all the way down, this way you will make the battery last longer.

    If you dance around the Mac singing 'charge charge oh please charge' then it might recharge the battery. I can't guarantee anything though.

    Ask for it back or buy a new one. Isn't that obvious?

    Ahh, you're forgetting a 3rd option...
    Go back in time and purchase another battery for backup. Fast forward to today and now you have another battery to swap out when the charge runs out on the one that's in your notebook. Voila!

    I hope you were not in English class, because if your teacher ever read your initail post I believe he/she would have a heart attack!

    wow really ? As not-sorry as I feel for the OP, I can actually offer a reasonable solution until he either gets his charger back or buys a new one.

    This will also kill a few birds with one stone hopefully.

    1. Call the person you gave the charger to and demand to get it back.

    2. Tell them to meet you at an APPLE store.

    3. Go to an APPLE store.

    4. Take out laptop.

    5. Set it down on a counter next to another macbook

    6. disconnect charger from macbook next to you and put it in yours !

    7. if the person doesnt show up with your charger, pay for a new one.

    8. go to friend who has your charger

    9. hand them the receipt for the charger

    10. say thank you for the money it cost you to get a new charger.

    if all that fails, never forget the lesson you've just learned.

    You can charge it without the power cord... if you are MacGyver!

    Chuck Norris would just stick his finger in the power connector port and "overcharge" the battery.

    You can try lodging a piece of wire in your charging terminal and:
    -Putting the other end in a power point
    -Toaster
    -In your hands and rubbing it on the carpet really quickly

    Borrowed...to? Interesting use of the English language. Surely your friend did the borrowing - you did the lending. You didn't give it to him as a gift so what's the problem in getting it back?
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.
