    So, I have been told by my local apple store that I might have a bad charging receptical, the port where the charger connects to the computer, so my question would be, does anybody know how much this might cost me?

    Do you still have warranty or Apple Care? And why didn't you ask your local Apple Store?

    Depends on a lot of things...

    If you're out of AppleCare, and depending on your model of Macbook Pro, it would probably be around $100-$150 with labor. The port is actually a separate part, so it can be pretty easily replaced on it's own, although my estimate is totally off the cuff.

    i didnt ask them because they were giving me a new battery and it was working just fine in the store with the new battery, but after a few days it stopped charging so i assume its because of the port. i came here to ask because no matter when i make an appointment at the apple store i always have to wait past my appointed time and i get sick of waiting so i leave.
