I just posted the article Apple cracks down on knock-off chargers.

Apple has sued a company that makes third-party MacBook laptop chargers, claiming patent infringement.

Another reason not to buy Apple. They’re a pack of control freaks…

It makes some sense for Apple to do this - apart from trying to stop a (fairly insignificant) competitor. If the replacement charger is of poor quality and starts a fire and/or injures someone, Apple will get the blame in the media. If it damages the computer, the customer will expect Apple to repair it.

Maybe they should do what the cell fone industry no doubt with the exception of Apple are doing and that’s making a universal mini USB based charger… Then there would be no need to buy expensive proprietary chargers…
