Power Adapter for MacBook Air 2010
« on: August 31, 2015, 12:27:48 AM »
Need a power adapter for the MacBook Air 2010 with the "T" style connecter on the end.... the factory supplied charger with the "L" connecter if turned away from blocking ports doesn't charge the laptop and if I turn it to block the USB and Headphone jack it charge perfect.... does it on EVERY SINGLE CHARGER I try so it can't be the adapter but the Laptop being picky on which way the charger is turned

I know higher watt chargers will work and can be suggested (confirmed to work by Apple).....

I'd check to see if there is a dirty connection. Clean with rubbing alcohol and q-tip if there is any gunk on contacts. If the connection in the MacBook is damaged then it should probably be serviced if even worth investing money into a 5 year old MacBook.

As for the power cords, lots of complaints about them as junk. http://www.apple.com/shop/reviews/MC747LL/A/apple-45w-magsafe-power-adapter-for-macbook-air

The T connector had serious issues with fraying and catching fire, Apple will not be making them nowadays and I would strongly advise against purchasing one.
