    My MBP charging has been randomly disconnecting in reconnecting(not physically) but it will connect with the MBP start to charge for seconds, start to flicker, and turn off, then seconds later turn back on and do the same. This will happen over and over again for quite some time. I'm not sure what's wrong, I know it's not the outlet because I have used many different outlets in various locations it this problem persists. Keep in mind the charger does work half the time, and will keep a steady charge, but sometimes it will randomly do this.

    Any help?

    - Thanks in Advance.

    Have you tried a differed charger? If you don't have access to one check out the apple store let them test it. If it's not the charger there is a mag safe part that connects to the motherboard that could be faulty.
