Only non-Apple charger works. Replace magSafe?
I live on a boat where all electricity is 12V so I bought a non-Apple car adapter on eBay to charge when I'm off the grid.
After 2 years, there was a period of few weeks when the charger would not charge but keep the Macbook on. After a week I went to work where I noticed that my original Apple charger would also not charge the Mac.
Resetting the SMC and switching off and on the car-(boat) adapter fixed the problem off grid, but charging with Apple chargers still fails (tried multiple).
So again, Macbook charges now on a car-adaptor non-Apple charger but does nothing on the grid on an Apple charger.
Any suggestions? Do I need to replace magSafe board?
(apart from carrying boat battery and solar panel with me)
Is this a good question?
