    Not without violating Apple's patents.

    You can find cheap "knock-offs" on ebay but you get what you pay for. I just buy used OEM chargers from trusty buyers there. (I have 1 for each of 3 locations just so I don't have to drag one around).

    If Apple gave you a brand new charger a few months ago then I would think that the charger would have a year warranty on it even if your computer is out of warranty. I might be wrong but I think that’s how it works.

    Theres alot of story people using cheap chargers for MBPs and iPhones and their battery explodes or it just dies on them.
    Then Apple dont replace it for you.

    wow there arent any better chargers? i think the apple charger is horrible, i take very good care of it but it always stops working after a few months and they are really expensive

    I've had mine for nearly 4 years, you probably don't take all that good care of them if they die after a few months.

    You can get the chargers much cheaper on amazon.
