What's up guys. Just bought a new MBP and was looking into getting a spare OEM charger, but trying not to spend $80. They have really good deals on brand new ones on eBay for as low as $25 that are OEM and claim to be authentic. But from my experience, good things at these prices can often be knockoffs. Anyone one have experience with these chargers? I don't wanna post any links! Thanks!

It would help if you linked the specific chargers you are interested in (or are concerned about)...so we can better judge things.

OK, since I'm new here, I didn't wanna go posting links. Wasn't sure if it was allowed.

Here's one: NEW MagSafe 60W Power Adapter charger for Apple MacBook MC461LL/A 13" 13.3" | eBay

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I can't see the item location to see if they are from China or Hong Kong or not.

charger should have model # 1344 according to your mbp and there should be an apple symbol engraved. make sure you ask the seller for model # and if is genuine.
