    hi,

    i have a 2012 macbook pro 13inch - have replaced the original broken charger with one from ebay which was apparently made by Apple but failed after about 8months.

    Can anyone recommend a decent replacement for a 60w magsafe 1?

    thanks

    Just buy an Apple one and do not wrap the cord tightly around the body of the charger. The one you bought on eBay was almost certainly a counterfeit.

    I support a lot of users with Apple portable computers so I see a variety of ways that people abuse their chargers. By far the most common failure happens when people wrap the cable so tight that it is bent over right at the end of the strain relief near the body of the charger. Users who don’t pull the cable so tight there seem to have fewer issues.

    When I needed to replace an older MagSafe, I got one from OWC. Works fine.
