    Today when I unplugged my MacBook charger from the wall and now the part where you plug it into the wall is slight bent almost like this. |/
    That's how the bend looks only it's less severe.
    Any idea what to do?

    Or your finger.

    Or if it really bothers you, the Apple store will probably give you a new plug end piece for it.

    I don't see why they would when it's obviously not a manufacture defect but more a case of neglect or abuse since the plugs are not known to just bend on their own freewheel.

    .... Really?? : sighs: They will replace it for you. I did this the first week I hate my MBP (the computer lab one of my classes used had really tight plugs and I accidentally kicked the charger while it was plugged in on the floor) without issue. The guy looked at me funny and laughed when I showed him the bent plug, but walked into the back and quickly returned with a new one. Didn't even have to explain myself.

    I mean, really, it costs Apple like what, $0.05 for one of those? They don't even sell replacements. Apple isn't that greedy that they would force you to buy a brand new charger just to get a new plug.
