Need help for macbook charger

Deal Newbie

Dear Dimers,

My macbook charger (macbook pro – 2010) is not working and need your help.

(Issue with the charger: The middle pin at the connector that helps in determining charging level is broken)

I want to buy a new charger and I am left with 2 choices.

1) 3rd party chargers that costs around Rs. 1500+
2) Apple warranty charger that cost upward of Rs.6000+

I want to know if anyone has experience in using 3rd party chargers as I really do not want to spend heavily on macbook as it is a very old laptop. Also, any jugaad if anyone has been able to do to overcome such charger issues.

Also, if anyone understands technicality which is more safe approach – buying 3rd party charger or replacing the connecting wire from original adapter (costs around 1000 on ebay)? I am looking at options that gets the work done without harming the laptop.

Thanks in advance
