Hi guys,

I'm wanting to sell a Apple 60W MagSafe charger either on here or on TM. Just need to know whether it's legal and meets NZ regulations before doing so. Any advice?

Hopefully you can read the finer detail. Here's what I've got:




I also have an extra NZ plug adapter that came with my new Macbook. It just slots in to where the US plug goes no problem, but I'm guessing it's not as simple as that.




The end result is a charger that looks perfectly legal, but is it?



Thanks in advance : )

Just don't include the US power lead and it should be fine.

There are those of us that would buy it with no plug at all because we have an excess of the cable for NZ chargers.

Thanks for the advice guys. So there's no issue with the input and output? Complete novice here : ) I see the duckhead says 2.5A but the charger says 3.6A, is this an issue?

For anyone interested in purchasing it. It's my brother's charger, I believe he purchased it in November last year from an Apple store in the US, used for 2 weeks, then not used again since. I see they retail for $150. Don't expect anywhere near that. I also see the market seems to be flooded with cheap aftermarket chargers.

@nedkelly What do you think it's worth?

Any offers?

Thanks again.
