    Hi

    My MacBook power cable has a crack in it and is very hot and is melting is this meant to happen after 1 year? I know I have used my MacBook a lot but for the cable to start to melt is well kind of ridiculous in my opinion.

    It is out of warranty so I doubt I will get a free one but I would like to know if this has happened to any of you guys?

    Has not happened to me. I've had a lot of ppl tell me not to use the tabs to wrap my cable around for transport, that I just should coil it up in my hand and use the little piece at the end of the cable to secure itself. Wrapping it around those 2 tabs could cause damage internally causing it to melt and if wrapped too tight it could damage the connection the cable makes going into the main charge box.

    If you search, there's 1000s of these threads, well maybe not that many but there are quite a few. Take it to your nearest AppleStore or authorized Apple dealer and they should replace it for free. Call up Apple too to see if they can send you one in the mail.
