How to replace the small, round plug that goes into the 12", G4 Powerbook that delivers power to recharge the battery? Answered

I simply want to cut off the original plug on the charger and replace it. My kid broke off the inner shaft of the plug so that the battery no longer charges. Where does one get the plug? Does one REALLY have to pay $129 for a whole new charger?

Radioshack can make up any kind of recharger or ac adapter. It'll cost about $20.

you may be able to find a suitable replacement barrel connector from digikey or mouser (dot com) Apple products tend to use goofy sizes to ensure proprietary stuff gets used. Measure the connector and search around for barrel connectors.
