    There is reports of MagSafe shielding is faulty. Today, i just plug in my MBP to charge and noticed my LCD's light was dimming back and forth, then i see my MagSafe is changing colors. couldn't figured why that happen, it the first time it happen to me, i noticed the shielding is torn and exposed the wire. i was so careful with my MagSafe and surprised this happens.

    So i ask my friend if he have the same problem, and he never does. so i call AppleCare, i got disconenct from the phone call two times and the last one is put on waiting for 15 mins. Screw that, im not going to waste my time and really need a new MagSafe because i am using my MBP for schooling everyday. so i went ahead and ordered my 85w MagSafe for MBP, cost me 104 bucks with overnight shipping.

    While i was looking at reviews for that power adapter, look like i am not the only one with this kind of issue, many of them claimed their MagSafe shielding is frayed or torn.

    I was checking the model number with my frayed MagSafe and the new MagSafe i will be getting it tomorrow, they are different but Apple Store said it 85W for MBP. Did Apple redesigned their MagSafe to avoid recalls for MagSafe? or something going on?

    And do anyone have their MagSafe frayed?

    There was a post about the ac adapter lead fraying here in the past, I can't be bothered looking it up for you _BUT_ yes heaps of people have that issue, myself included. Hopefully Apple have done something to address the issue, can't say I care though I ordered a new adapter and sold my MacBook Pro a while back.

    Isn't it a bit stupid to buy a new adapter then selling your MBP?? :p

    Anyways to the OP, you should really talk to Apple and get a new one, since they are the ones responsible for making crap quality products.

    Actually I don't think so. If you had purchased it from me would you have been happy with a faulty (AND DANGEROUS) adapter? :rolleyes:

    Apple wouldn't fix it under warranty?

    Unfortunately the reseller said no, I could of pushed it but to be honest I'd made my mind up to get rid of the machine by then so I just purchased a new 1 and sold the notebook.
