    **Sorry I posted this in the Macbook section as well...sorry if I reposted**

    My magsafe just got fried which was the square shape tip..I believe this is the older generation magsafe adapter. I know apple is including the new "L" shape tips for all the macbooks now and it seems too be more convenient and does not pop out so much like the square one.. From the Apple Store in NYC the sell the charger alone for $79.99 + Tax = $85.00..which I believe is quite pricey..

    I was browsing online and found a lot of the off market ones which I do not want...I did find a few like this one that is selling for $54.99 + Free Shipping with the Apple Extension cord and is Genuine... from the apple store the extension cord itself is $19.99..Let me know what you guys think thank you.

    do you have a macbook pro 13" the one you are looking at is a 60 watt adaptor which the macbooks and 13" mbp use. if you own a 15" or 17" then you should be getting an 85 watt adaptor.

    back to the site. it has paypal so if you pay with that you should be good because they cover you if anything goes wrong. i wouldnt pay for it however if you dont use paypal.

    Maybe call Applecare and explain to them that yours burned up and you are worried about your safety and concerned with future fire hazards. They might replace it for free for you.

    Got Cha... I am tempted too buy this one though since the price is really good at $54.99 + the free Apple Extension Cord...I emailed there support and they said it is Genuine and gave me the serial # to verify it with Apple that it is Genuine. Would you buy this?

    *Apple charges this for $79.99 for the magsafe alone + $19.99 for extension cord so its almost $100.00!! AHHhh~!!** :D

    Here is a screenshot from the apple store website. it says the extension is included with the one from the store for $79.

    Hi, my name is Tricia P. Welcome to Apple!
    Hi there! How are you today?

    No problem! Let me look into that for you.
    Thanks for waiting while I checked on that for you!
    It comes with the standard length cable, not any extension cord.
    whats the standard length cable
    ?
    is it the one built in to the magsafe?
    Yes, that is correct.

    I recently bought one of these 60W magsafe adapters for my MBP13 from this seller on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290508552118

    It arrived promptly and was a bestbuy openbox return item; it was complete with extension cord and two-prong adapter, Macbook end is the newer L style.

    I am perfectly happy with my purchase. I have no connection to the seller other than being a satisfied buyers.

    Thanks for the link. Just bought one. Hopefully it's as good as the one you received. Should be perfect for the Hengedock.

    I am not 100% sure but I think there are some compatibility issues with the new connector and hengedocks

    My current magsafe (from my mid-2010 MBP) works fine. The Hengedock comes with 3 adapters for the magsafe connector. The "B" adapter works for the 60w "new" magsafe connector. I can take a pic if anyone is interested.

    I find the similarities between our names quite humorous. On topic: I would recommend a website called MacBookAdapter. They have amazing customer service. I have bought two magsafe adapters from them. The first one, which I got refurbished died after about 60 days. I emailed the owner of the company. Within 5 minutes, he emailed me back (and this was at like 1 am MST). He said he would send me out a new (refurbished) one as soon as possible. I had to send the old one back.
