I've been using my MacBook Power Supply with the AC cable but would like to switch to the smaller AC wall adapter. But I can't find that part anymore!

So, just wondering if there's a MR person out there that would like to trade the long wall cord for the small wall adapter (not including the power supply itself).

BTW, if someone has a suggestion for wording this better, I would really appreciate it :)

I have one...

An easier way to phrase this:

You are giving away the long chord in return,
The other person gives the short wall adapter.

The small plug adapter that fits in the AC adapter is called (by Apple) "The Duckend Connector".

Your "long cable" is a 2m cable, the ultimate question is... Does it have a grounded (3 prong) plug or a non-grounded (2 prong) plug?

You were never able to buy the duckend connector as a separate part, it only came with new AC adapters. You can usually find one on eBay for about $1.

the ones i found on ebay go for $4 + s/h (usually $6), or more. it's definitely a grounded plug (i.e., came from a magsafe power supply).
