    Hey. Um, i totally screwed up and accidentally dropped the MacBook power source/charger. And it seems to me that it isn't working anymore, is it really THAT sensitive? The power's stuck to 96%, and its really scaring me because this belongs to my mom's company. Please reply guys. I'm not really tech-savvy so i really, really need your answer. What should I do other than BUY (oh my) a new one? HELP!!:confused::(:confused::confused:

    What do you mean by 'it's stuck at 96%'? Do you mean that it no longer goes all the way to 100% (fully charged)? If that is the case and the charge % doesn't go down as you use it you should be fine, the charger isn't broken. The maximum charge the battery can take goes down over time as you use it (so full charge <100%).

    Now, it the charger suddenly starts heating up alot then you should be worried, charger blocks are pretty solid, and it should take quite a lot of punishment for it to really be busted.

    ok, cool down a second, shall we?

    1)The Macbook's battery will not charge until it falls below 95%.

    2)Plug the MagSafe into the Macbook. Does the green/orange LED on the MagSafe light up? If it does, then im sure the charger is still working.

    Yah your fine. It's normal not to charge until below 95%. I've dropped my charger many times and mine still works fine :)

    If worse comes to worse, you can find a new Adapter on eBay for $40.
