I'm still nursing my venerable white, dual USB G3 iBook and getting ready to buy yet another (my fifth) 45W model 8482 AC Adapter. They all keep failing where the male plug-in mates with the computer it's a crappy set-up. It kills me to keep buying these damned things at retail prices stateside. However, on eBay, a million Chinamen are selling these things for only $25-$30, but it took me only two seconds to discover how unctuous those Asians are. They all regard the words REFURBISHED and NEW as synonymous. I've yet to find one who knows even kindergarten English however, they know numbers good. Still, I don't want to give up too soon. Is there anyone out there who has bought the Hong Kong version of the OEM model? The photos are identical. For all I know they may work fine. If not, I'll go for the Gluiness world record for AC Adapters. Oh, and another thing, how can these things be "refurbished," nothing comes apart?
