    Hello. This is my first post here. I just acquired my Macbook today.
    Here's my question: Can I plug the 60W MagSafe Power Adapter on a 220 voltage?

    Since you did not mention if the Magsafe was a Genuine one or 3rd party, its best to check on markings on the adapter and just to be extra sure, ask the seller from where you purchased it.

    Speaking of this MAGSAFE, I am quite impressed with this technology. I have been tripping a few times with my macbook while plugged and the thing really detaches itself very easily!!! Galing!!!

    Though, sa first day ng macbook ko I already lost the tiny cover for the adapter. Shame on me. Hahaha. When I saw the cover I already said to myself, "This thing is meant to be lost."

    POOF!!!!

    Hi

    just asking is it normal for magsafe to be connected to power source and mb but sometimes no led light?

    is this a ground for warranty defect?

    i don't think it's normal that there's no led light. that never happened to me (yet).
    it should always show green if you have a full battery, or amber/orange when it's charging.
    try bringing your magsafe to a service center and have them check it.

    for whatever it's worth, i've used a 60w magsafe power adapter to power my macbook pro, which typically uses the 80w adapter.

    and when i wore out the tip (the cable connecting to the plug), which led to intermittent charging or "loose connection", powermac center said they don't repair them. bummer, i had to buy a new adapter. good thing the company paid for it. :D

    AFAIK, there are still no 3rd-party Magsafe adapters. Apple hasn't licensed it out yet. This kinda sucks because you still can't get Magsafe tips for universal chargers, like those from iGo.

    Has this happened to anyone? The connector got so hot, it actually melted the insulaton. The thing is, I'm not sure if it's still under warranty. If not, will apple replace it pa rin kaya. I mean it's obviously a factory defect!

    meron na, patrick--i also thought there weren't any yet, until i got one from hong kong, for about P2,000. kopyang-kopya! but at least it was honest enough to have a label saying "replacement adapter," although it was advertised as MEGSAFE, ha ha ha. works pretty well, so far.

    I just read a 2007 Macworld article that talks about a 3rd party Magsafe solution:
    http://www.macworld.com/article/58446/2007/06/mctmagsafe.html

    Of course, not cheap, especially if compared to Penmanila's HK version.
