    He really must hate apple macbooks then. What you describe is apple best practice for many years to ensure they fail hard and soon.

    And yet their marketing is such that they have millions who keep buying their products.
    Got to hand it to them if they have best practice to make products fail hard and soon while also at the same time having people who will insist on using their products over other, much better designed ones as regards failing.

    Give a company like TUV a call. They could test your samples. Won't be cheap or quick though.

    I assume you mean the power adaptors not the mac book itself as there is nothing mains powered inside.

    We have two macbooks, the wife's one is 9 years old and my one 7 years old. One power adaptor cable frayed so I purchase a non Apple one - that burnt out literally in a year. So been putting up with a shoddy genuine one for the last 4 years.

    I think Apple engineering is so diabolical, only lasting 7 years without a fault except a frayed cable. Compare to say the Dell XPS I had before that lasted exactly 18 months before motherboard terminal failure.

    Maybe I'm have just been lucky.
