Replacing the T-Shaped pin with new one bought from China
My MegaSafe2 adapters’ magnetic pin (T-shaped) has springes and I can see some of the pins are damaged due to short-circuit (probably water damage). Although the adapter works perfectly fine, one of the pins is stuck inside the magnetic clip. So every time I have press the magnetic clip to the MacBook charging point so it will touch and start charging. I decided to buy the new cable from eBay and I was thinking to replace it. However, I’m not sure if it is a good idea.
As I know if just replace the cable and not do anything with adapter then it should be fine! am I right?
Will it be an issue in the future with my mac if I use this cable?
Please guide me here! Thanks!
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Best to get a new unit. Make sure its a REAL Apple unit OEM MagSafe Chargers vs Cheap Imposters: Teardown for Truth

@danj The ones from Best Buy are also real if the OP doesn't have a real Apple store nearby.
Only safe way to buy seems to be Apple or Best Buy now. Times have changed and the usual eBay used listings aren't even safe anymore with how close they are now.
