85 W adapter only registers as 60 W adapter, help?

I did this cable repair recently on an apple 85W adapter (not counterfeit, the one that came with the laptop purchased directly from apple) and the system now reports that the connected charger is 60W instead of 85W. Any idea why this would happen?

Is this a good question?

I have same issue with my 85W Magsafe. I purchase the new magsafe cable from eBay, and detected as 60W.

Download and run Coconut Battery and see what it tells you about the Mag-Safe.
