    Ok so is it okay to leave my charger plugged into the wall socket on all the time? Even when im not charging my MPB? I have this strange fear that the charger will die on me faster if i leave it plugged in all the time, 24/7.

    I leave mine plugged in all the time, never had a problem. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I've seen this thread more than enough times. Try searching the forums (top right). You'll find a lot of threads that usually say that leaving it plugged in is OK;)

    hi there just wondering if the charger would still use electricity, if its not connected to the macbook.

    It will use some electricity because it has internal resistance but that would be as much as most electric appliances when on standby.
