Hi Everyone. I'm usually in the iPhone forum, but my girlfriend is having some Powerbook issues and I thought you guys might be able to help. After doing some extensive searching, I find the problems she's having with her adapter are happening to everyone. She has the white A/C adapter that came with her laptop when she bought it. It sparks all the time, has to be held at just the right angle to even hope for it to work, and part of the casing has black reside on it I think from shorting out. Not the best made product. After seeing that this frequently happens, I am quite hesitant for her to buy another Apple adapter, since it costs $80 and they haven't bothered to correct the problem. I have found other generic adapters, but who knows if they are any good. Does anyone have recommendations on what adapter is reliable? Any stories of adapters people have tried and had success, or failures to avoid? Thank in advance.
