    So I've been working my Mbp Retina 2015 since I spilled some water on it and everything looked fine... No charge.
    Looks like I've broken off the Dc-in socket where the magsafe stuff connects to the Logic Board. Is there any way I can fix this bar a new logic board? I'm more than willing to attempt to solder but I've found no information online about what to do in this regard.

    Side question: Will I be able to run a newer model macbook off AC only (Uninstalling the battery)

    There are guides on iFixit for replacing the magsafe 2 DC-in board.

    Thanks for the reply :)
    What I've broken isnt a part of the magsafe board, it's part of the logic board that the DC-In board connects to :/

    You probably need to sent it to someone that does component repairs on the logic board.

    Here's one such place:
