    So the plastic/rubber started to rip exposing the wires, so I patched it up with tape. 3 days ago I plugged up the charger and noticed it wouldn't charge, I smelled something burn next thing I know its coming from where the tear was, I unplugged it. I pick it up and the damn wire rips off! :mad: I paid extra for the 3 year warranty, will apple replace it or will I have to buy a new one?

    The did for me when it started to fray, not sure how they'll respond to a DIY repair though. Worth a try regardless.

    Depends on the Genius you get at the Apple store, I know for a fact that technically that the damage showed would not be covered under warranty as it LOOKS like it was user damaged and not a manufacturing defect since the was ripped in half. However if you haven't used your warranty fir anything yet tell them your situation and they may make an exception and be nice. BTW heres a link. http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-M...360980883&sr=8-1&keywords=macbook+pro+charger

    Read the above. He/she may get lucky but the so called Genius's have screwed me before lol

    Giddy Up to the Apple Store..

    If the the fault is the component, I am sure they will replace it..

    If you cut it on something/ your dog chewed it, then good luck.. but they might be nice, if you are.. :apple:

    Have you bought that before? The price is good but I don't know how long I would expect it to work. I would assume it isn't OEM you can get a bad/crap one that stops charging within a couple months or an off chance that it fries your laptop. I need an extra one to carry in my bag and another to leave at work so I can leave the original at home.
