My wife likes to have multiple plugin chargers for her MacBook...since she uses it in different rooms in our home. So instead of unplugging the charger (from the wall) when she moves from room to room...she just buys a 2nd charger...and disconnects the MacBook via the mag-safe plug.

In any case...we purchased a used original Apple charger off e-Bay for about $30 bucks. It works great...was less than half the price of a new one from the Apple Store...AND most likely better quality than buying a 3rd party "knock-off" charger.

HTH,

Thank you for the replies.

This one in genuine according to reviews. I trust amazon more than ebay when it comes to buying things.

Genuine Apple 60W MagSafe MacBook Adapter A1184: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

Problem is I don't trust the Apple one since it broke after 1 and a half years of use. It's only a charger. Should last decades.

I guess I'll get it and hope it is fine and comes soon.

35% charge left.
