The iPad is charging now. Just that it remained with the zero charge indicator for over 5 hours although it was connected to its own charger which was working.the first charge took in all over 18 hours. Now it is working as expected. I.e., the charge cycles are only few hours.

If you decide to use a third-party cable, I would recommend an Apple MFI certified cable. These will be more expensive than other non-Apple cables, but they have been approved by Apple and should not damage your device.

Apple MagSafe cables have one central shielded cable & one braided outer cable. You are simply breaking & creating a connection when you touch the broken braided cable - the order anomaly is the MagSafe/MacBook logic/sensor only allowing a particular state to operate. It is possible to crack open a MagSafe and solder a 3rd party cable (but it will ...

Have a look at Ken Shirriff's Teardown and exploration of Apple's Magsafe connector. It includes a pinout that will help you.

Just try to open your MacBook Pro's back cover, unplug the cable from the battery to the logic board. Keep it unplugged for a couple of seconds. Then reconnect the cable from the battery to the logic board an reassemble the cover of your MacBook Pro, reconnect the charger and it should be all good to go.

Before you go replacing parts, make sure the contacts are clean on both the rMBP and MS2 adapter. Ensure no pins are pushed in and stuck on the adapter. Also ensure ...

Battery Drop of 5% in two hours is not bad A battery drop of 5% within two hours is not bad at all. How much does it drop throughout an entire day? How long can you use it for taking a few calls, browse a little?

In Denmark you have 2 types of wall plug. Both have ground connection. The left one is standard European type and it has two ground connection showing as springs. Your Apple plug should just fit in that one. I am assuming the socket it is actually connected to the ground in your place.

If your Powerbank has a output for 14.5 Volts (DC) then yes, you can use it with magsafe plug. But not if it has output of 5 Volt (typical output). There are ways to do it, but would require 5-15 Volt converter including USB to magsafe cable and plug. There are also car chargers for your MacBook. Then there is this thing, but at ridiculous cost of $300 ...

No. A powerbank is a battery device designed to charge small devices through the USB ports, but not provide the wattage necessary for charging a MacBook's battery.

Hypothetically the answer is yes - but - for all practical purposes you will never have to worry. One could somehow "rig" up a malicious USB cable that did something funky - but - one you would buy from a 3rd party should never hurt your phone (although the cable might not last too long) If its MFI Certified that means its Non-Apple but Apple approved. ...
