How to repair MacBook power cable broken at magsafe end?

Greetings,

Anyone know of instructions for repairing a MacBook power cable broken at the magsafe end? The mesh wire is completely separated and not long enough to reach the plug.

Thanks

You can find replacement magsafe cables on ebay and the likes for a few €/$. I would not recommend replacing the entire cable if your other end is fine but just snip away the ending part to desired lenght and join the inner/outer parts, much better if you can solder the parts. You will need insulating tape and heat shrink tubes to get the job done properly and safely.

As long as I am soldering the wire, I would like to make the cable longer. Do You know what that kind of wire is called?

A search such as Magsafe replacement cable or power cord will get you to what you need to find. I did the same for my testing 60W magsafe, a nice 3m long power cable ;)

Best to just replace the MagSafe charger. There really isn’t any way to salvage the cable assembly. The problem is any cable you find are from eBay is from a fake charger and/or you not likely to get the correct one as theres five different units Teardown and exploration of Apple's Magsafe connector
