MagSafe Adapter Repair 101
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (R3)
After three years of careful used the MagSafe power adapter of Apple’s Macbook finally fall apart. The power cord was torn into two pieces from the base and its coaxial cable. Anything that is used more often tends to wear out naturally. I jumped into conclusion that I have to spend extra PhP 5,000 the most (approx. US$120), an amount I can spend more valuable for the family. It made me think that if Apple products are priced at par from its competitors, then consumers should be more extra vigilant in using the products. Which eventually the unit never able to used, that Apple Macbook experienced substantial TLC (tender loving care) from its owner. She never traveled and stay inside our crib for the rest of her life. 🙂 I can’t understand why Apple allow its product to wear and tear without justification, given that they market the brand as sophisticated and upscale, not to mention the high price tag that comes with its name. Apple company should guarantee its users with five years or less free warranty. We can’t even rely 100% to Apple’s authorized service centers.
