I want to find out the (average) weight of a MagSafe 85W adapter, but I could not find anything really useful on the internet. I bought an adapter that weighs about 210 grams, whereas my old one (broken) weighs a little more, 230 grams.
I'm a little worried that the new one I bought is not genuine, since I bought it from an ebay seller who stated that it's a bulk product straight from the factory and had thousands of good reviews.
I measured the weight with a kitchen scale, without the power cable attached (i.e. only the adapter) and with the cable connecting to the computer on the ground, such that it's (for the very most part) not included in the weighting. I know the latter is a bad technique, but the reason is that the old and new adapter have a different magnetic connector thing (the new one is L shaped).
It would be awesome if some of you guys could just put your adapter on a scale the same way I did it and tell me the result.
