    HI All Super Thanks in advance for your help!!

    My Macbook Pro charger had been acting up and finally yesterday stopped charging my MBP completely so I borrowed a charger from someone in my office. This other charger was working fine last night but today when I was in the office it stopped working as well. I assumed I had a hardware issue on my MBP and did a little research, I did try to reset the SMC and still nothing.
    Here is the strange part: After I returned the borrowed charger to my office mate it was not charging her machine either.
    Can a corrupt battery in my MBP destroy a charger??
    Thanks All!!

    It's possible that debris or a short in the MagSafe socket on your MBP is causing heat and damage to the MagSafe plug on the charger.

    Do you think I should buy a new battery and try that or replace the magsafe socket? How difficult is that to do?

    It really depends on the model. You should be able to look at it and see if its damaged.
