...is there an alternative? I have no idea how this even came to be. I bought my new 13" rMBP ecstatically yesterday as a Christmas gift to myself. I charged it last night, and took the charger out overnight, letting it lay on my floor. This morning when I woke up I opened my Macbook and decided to charge it, and to my surprise when I plugged in the Magsafe the light indicator would not turn on. As it turns out, the cable broke and the wires were exposed. http://i.imgur.com/vVUFEX5.jpg To my understanding, I did nothing to cause this. But logically something must have been done to the wire overnight because it was working before I went to sleep. I have no pets that could chew the cable, so my only conclusion is that it was somehow in a strained position on my floor causing the cable to rip. I took the charger to the Apple store about an hour ago and they told me that they couldn't do anything, as it was not covered under my warranty (called it accidental damage). I was super bummed considering all the apple stores on the sub and thinking that they would give me a new one (the lady on the phone that I talked to from Apple said that it would be covered under warranty). tl;dr: Do I buy a new Apple MagSafe 2 60W charger or do I buy a 3rd person charger?
