    If you were to drop a magsafe, would it damage it?

    I didn't drop it from very far at all, but was curious.

    No.
    Worst it could do is crack the plastic housing.

    Mine have been exceptional, very rugged I doubt they'd be affected.

    Is it working properly? If so, it isn't damaged.

    If you drop anything with enough force, you'd break it. But, a charger adapter is pretty sturdy.

    The MagSafe adapters are pretty well built. I've dropped a few older ones off of a table onto a hard wood floor before years ago and they kept on ticking, so unless you're seeing physical cracks on the housing or having an issue with it powering or charging your computer then don't sweat it. :)
