    WTF!

    i never mess with it and i didnt even notice it had broke off until i went to connect it today at the library...

    can i still use it that way? it seems to be working fine

    :x:

    can i just get the cord part from Apple? The rest of the charge unit works fine

    It'll work ok, there just isn't any ground now for the plug (same as if you plugged the brick in directly without the extension). You should probably be able to get a replacement if you call apple

    my house doesn't have any grounds in the plugs (old ass house...)
    so i have to use those 3-to-2 adaptors if I have a ground prong in my plugs :o
