Any Magsafe Dangers?

Hi, I've recently purchased the updated Macbook Pro. I'm new to Mac and not used to the Magsafe feature.
I was wondering if the Magsafe port had any dangers I need to be aware of, especially since it's so close to the USB port and magnet near memory is never a good thing lol.
Is it safe to:
1) Leave storage devices near it? (Ex: iPod, external hard drives, credit cards)
2) Transfer heavy files from an external using the USB port near the Magsafe? (ex: will it distort the files transfered?)
Also, if somehow a USB got stuck (magnetic attraction) momentarily onto the Magsafe, will it distort the memory in the attached storage device? (ex: if I was about to transfer files from my iPod and I moved the USB too close to the Magsafe and it gets attached momentarily, will it distory files in my iPod?)
Thanks a lot, I'm really worried about my files lol ><;

The only thing you need to watch out for is damage to the cable itself and also make sure that the connector is well seated. There have been isolated cases of MagSafe adapters catching fire, but it usually revolves around damaged cables or improperly seated connections.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
