    I still have mine.

    But I don't really use it anymore once my laptop goes out of the box. In the beginning, yes, I put it back. But after regular use of the laptop, the plastic cover practically fades into oblivion.

    Just curious, will there be an advantage if I replace it everytime I'm done using the magsafe?

    Is this the small plastic thingy that you put at the end of the cable? The small rectangular one?

    I still have mine but don't really bother putting it back on. I guess that will put a premium when I sell my Mac eh? :p

    Hey guys! If there's anyone who could provide this part, with a reasonable price, do let me know. I'm very much interested to replace the one I lost.
    Thanks!

    That protective cover was placed there as a means of protection during shipping, that's all. It is not intended for the user to keep it and use it. It is not a big deal to lose it. I have been a Mac user for a very very long time now and never have I kept those plastic covers for any of Apple's cables (Power Adapter, MagSafe, FireWire, iPod USB, etc).

    To reiterate elbert's sentiment. I don't use mine. It's in the box my MacBook shipped in, along with the remote that I also don't use.
