How to open and replace the MagSafe cord on an Apple AC adapter
Sonicare Elite 7300 - Battery Replacement
I soldered it to the circuit board, but i also do not have the casing tightly put back together, need to go out and get super glue. Could the casing not being tight have anything to do with this?

I recently soldered my charger back together however now it will stop charging within about 5 min but will start to charge again if i un-plug and plug it back into the wall. This is a bit of a hassle as it happens every 5 to ten minutes. Any idea what could be wrong? Thank you
This was way WAY easier than using plyers, for me at least. So THANK YOU! for this suggestion. I have done probably 10 of them and using plyers I always slipped at some point and managed to dig into the casing - Nexus916
Right? Way better than gouging the plastic or shanking yourself in the hand. - GalenS3
I'm not the one who did the video, I think I know which specific one you're talking about though.
1. Yes you can install a magsafe2 cable in a magsafe charger and it works fine. I've done it to several.2. No difference noticed.3. Yes they're the same electrically, just the end is different.
Wow! I did it and it was so easy--way faster and fewer steps than changing my iphone's screen. Thank you! I'm not sure if you are the same person or not, but there's a good youtube video that goes well with these instructions. I was having a hard time prying it open with pliers, but seeing someone else did it helped.
Hi,I recently got a 60W MagSafe power supply with a broken cable. It came with few questions:1. Will it work correctly whether I change the cable to MagSafe2 and use it as an extra charger to my new Mac Book Pro 13'' with Retina? 2. Will there be any difference in charging time?3. Are they the same power supplies from the point of view of electronics? I think that I can do so since an adapter from MagSafe to MagSafe2 does not probably contains any electronics, does it?Thank you in advance for all answers!
Thank you for taking the time to put this up! one lead replaced and charger fully repaired!
Tried this and found that accessing the solder areas where the cable is attached to the circuit board is quite tricky, and in my case it destroyed the unit. Fortunately I had another spare with a broken lead - so the second attempt I simply cut the wires on the old lead inside the case and soldered the new lead to the stub of the old one, taking care to insulate the joins properly with tape (or better still heat shrink sleeves). This made reassembly much simpler. However, take care - after the charger has been unplugged for a few minutes the capacitors remain charged and can give you quite a nasty electrical shock...
