    Hey guys, I have a G4 powerbook and the charger that came with it sucks.

    The stupid connector is frayed. I checked on apple.com and the stupid thing costs $80!

    On top of that there are over 400 negative reviews on apple.com about this issue.

    Anyone have advice?

    I wanted to throw this in there too since it kinda relates..

    i have the 12inch 1.5ghz pb.. i also have extended applecare.. since once the g4 powerbook gets replaced and the ibook, apple will no longer sell the powerbrick charger... would i be able to get a replacement from apple if mine stoped working or even purchase it from them since i do have a applecare extended warrenty?

    Those old ones bite pretty bad. My ex had hers do the exact same thing and then dropped about that much at compusa.

    These new MBP magnetic plugs work great.

    Mine broke off because I let little kids run across it. I just called em up and told em that I needed a new one on account of the head falling off after I disconnected the power cord from the ibook.
