Sketchy Things From China: "Apple" Power Supply

As part of a new project I needed a power connector for a macbook. Not wanting to shell out $65 for an official power supply just for the connector I picked one up from ebay for about $20. On first glance this looks like an apple power supply.. but something just seemed off about it.

First Encounter With Apple Tech Support

![]( =320x) I’ve been using a mac laptop as my primary system for about 5 years now. I’ve had this particular system for over two years and never had a problem until last week. I use this system both at home and at work so it gets a good workout and is pretty important to what I do. I had some sort of power issue last week that required some new hardware internally.
