    Hey,

    I bought my Macbook Pro 15" in New York last year.

    When back in Europe, I bought the adapter so i could charge it with plug sockets over here.
    Will it matter buying european charger when laptop was bought in america?


    Recently i notice i have a small nick/unravelling on the wire on the charger lead where its joined to the charger box itself and have to play with it get the laptop charging.

    Im wondering is it ok just buy a new charger for it over here and use as normal.

    How do I know which charger is correct..


    Sorry if sounds stupid question, just want to make sure, also if there is anywhere online buy one.

    Yeah you can buy a european charger for your american MBP, if that is what you are asking. The Apple store sells them though they're not cheap. If you're in warranty Apple may replace it

    MagSafe 2 is a thinner variant released a few days ago. It is only compatible with 2012 MacBook Airs and Retina MBPs.

    I seriously suggest getting 85W MagSafe charger for a 15 incher. 60W is for 13 inchers. I think it would still charge your laptop, but it would be slower and won't provide enough power to charge while on use.

    As long as you get 85W MagSafe (not MagSafe 2) charger, it would be fine. Charger blocks are free-voltage and universal. I have used one bought in Korea in U.S. without problem; only had to pay $8 for socket connectors in retail Apple Store.

    Would it not make a difference it was bought in New York and now live in Ireland?

    I entered in my serial on apple.com and got this

    Yeah I don't know if they would honor it abroad, but you might as well ask!

    Normally you have worldwide warranty, go and try it, why not?
