    I got some shrink tubes from Ace hardware as well, can't recall which branch though.

    If you are persistent enough in asking, Apple will actually agree to replace the magsafe beyond the warranty period. I got mine replaced after 2 years of use, I just called their customer service number. The officer asked me to email a picture of my magsafe, and they approved the replacement free of charge. I had to surrender the old one when I claimed the new adapter at the service center. I did that way back 2013. The replacement magsafe is still okay to date.

    Really? I got mine replaced through APP and the replacement seems to be having problems again. I have to find an angle for it to charge.

    MagSafe may attract dirt that is magnetic and make charging difficult

    Also had this problem before and I ended up just replacing mine after a little over 3 years of use. Do you guys think those small spiral cord protectors that can be found everywhere will help prevent the fraying of the wires?
