    This is one flaw in apple's products. Their magsafe adapter for the macbook pro does not last long. The original adapter that I had for my MBP 13 lasted only for almost a year and a half. Almost the same time as last year. I bought a replacement from Ebay that cost me $29. I know it's refurbished so I just decided to buy an original one from ebay as well. It cost me around $58. After a year. The power adapter/charger broke down. I've decided to buy a replacement charger on ebay. I don't want to spend more money on a power adapter. Are you guys having problems with your magsafe power adapter also?

    My apple adapters last around 3 years average. That's about the same as my old thinkpad adaptors.

    Almost 7 years and still on my original 60W adapter. Guess I'm just fortunate apparently.

    I had the magsafe of my MBA replaced twice already. Good thing is it's still under applecare. I dread the day the cord will get frayed again after the APP warranty has expired. I wish the fray fix would be available here in the Philippines.

    I actually read the reviews about the magsafe on apple's web site. Yung ibang bumili noong ganoong adapter. naka apat na sila in 1 year. Ako timing na timing. Almost the same time as last year bumigay ung orig ko. Luckily bumili ako ng refurbished ginamit ko lang pang backup charger. Hindi na ako bibili ng ganyang charger sa app store. I'll just go to ebay.

    I think I'm also fortunate enough with my Magsafe Power Adapters, they're all working fine after 6 years. :)

    i bought a magsafe power adapter 60 watts from ebay. I accidentally got the 60 watts magsafe adapter t connector. If I'm not mistaken they used this power adapter for the much old macbook pro (2008 , 2009). I tried it and it's working. Would there be anything that I need to be concerned about?

    It will work fine, I used to interchange my T and L type adapters without any issues.
