    Default ISO Cheap charger for MacBook Pro

    Not interested in paying a gazillion dollars from Apple... Any imitations that work well and won't blow up my laptop?

    Never had any issues with the $2.00 ones on Ebay.

    The brick gets hotter than the "name brand" ones and occasionally it needs some wiggling to get it to stick and charge, but it's worth not paying $50.

    Have purchased many for both the white plastic Macbook I've had for five years, and even one for the aluminum Pro that I've only owned for a year. I have cats, dogs, and at one point a rabbit who seem to find the white cords absolutely delicious.

    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    I thought just my cats were weird, they love chewing the white cord, especially in the middle of the night when my iPhone is charging. Thank goodness for the cheap-o replacement ones from 5 Below. I just ordered a cord for my MacBook from eBay, as I fried the first one( it sat in my backpack where my water bottle spilled for a few hours before I figured it out, oops).

    I've lost two to cats. I finally bought two from Amazon for about $15 so I don't have to do the $80 one at bestbuy.
