Is another MagSafe DC-In Board compatible with this MacBook?

History

I need this: MacBook Unibody (Model No. A1278) MagSafe DC-In Board

But I have access to a used one of these: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid 2009 to Mid 2012) MagSafe DC-In Board

How similar are they? Can I replace the 820-2361-02 with a 820-2565-A?

This 820-2565-A is compatible with A1278 mid 2010 late 2010 & early 2011.

Good luck

it worked electrically, but the screw holes did not match. Turns out I have a separate problem.

I know this is an old issue, but I had the same scenario just occur: I had an 820-2361-A (identical to the 820-2361-02) that I wanted to replace with an 820-2565-A.

I did find as well that one of the screw-holes did not line up, but the other did. I tightened that one as best as I could by hand, crossed my fingers and plugged it in. Sure enough it seems to be working fine!

Just another data point. My:

17" Unibody MacBookPro8,3 Early 2011, Model A1297

requires the DC-IN board: 820-2361-A

Amazon sent the 'Power Jack Board 820-2565-A' by mistake. The second hole is off by about 2mm, and thus not possible to secure with the second screw. Chip and layout looked identical (but no way to know). Under deadline pressure, I proceeded with the install. Fixed and booted. So far so good. At first was concerned about DC-IN board rotating, but the pull of the magnetic connector does not apply inward pressure to the board.
