    Hi,

    I have had my Macbook pro for less than a month, but today I just realized that the wire had been damaged (I think it might have been caught under a chair) and now at two places some wires are exposed.
    The charger still works but I am a bit worried about getting electrocuted :eek:
    Should I buy a new one (as I assume it is not covered by the warranty?), or tape it some way, some how ?

    Thanks ! :eek:

    I think if you need to ask, you probably should replace it. You'll feel safer.

    Thumbs up to Apple ! :p
    They gave me a new adapter without even asking any questions, saying it was not normal to break this way.
    I don't know if it was because it was under a month of the purchase, if it was Apple or the location but I'm really glad I purchased an Apple product now! :apple:

    They seem to be very lenient with the power adapters. Glad you got a new one without issue.
