best place to buy a MacBook charger in HCMC?

Anyone know the best place to buy a cheap Chinese MacBook Air charger in HCMC?

Why not buy the real thing.  I know it is less expensive but how will you feel when that cheap charger clone burns out your Macbook Air? … 06.6666667

Most of these listed places are phones only.  I would suggest the iCenter or Future World locations as they are full service Apple Resellers including authorized service.

I've never heard of one burning out a Mac, but I've bought one already.
I've used them in the past and know others who have as well.

Are you still under warranty or AppleCare?  If you are, that should be your first consideration. 

If not you still might want to to consider these: … p;tstart=0

This posts contains a variety of opinions.  It does seem that you may be better off since you have an Air which draws 45W.  Going the other way, a MacBook Pro drawing 85W, can have problems with a smaller charger. … acbook-pro … r.1169043/

Besides the warranty issue, it seems that the greatest danger is not so much that you will damage the MacBook but that the charger itself could burn up.  Good luck to you.

I'm out of the warranty for my Mac Air by a few years. Right, I wouldn't do it within the warranty.
The charger I bought comes with a 1 year warranty so I'm happy. thanks

Hi there is link to some shop in Saigon..from cheap to expensive..
Hope it help.. cheers … o-hcm.html … cm.374677/

Thanks-- I already picked mine up recently here in HCMC for 650,000 which is appears to be slightly cheaper than the cheapest offered at one of these links. (Didn't try to translate the VN though.)
Mine came with a one yr warranty so the price is slightly higher than I have paid in Phnom Penh, but came with 4x the warranty time --something that has been useful in the past.

Hi Expatri8,  can you please share where you bought your adapter from. I am also looking to buy one. Thanks.

Hi TD19,
Sorry I am late to reply. I've looked for my receipt in my storage, which I just accessed, as to where I bought my MacBook (T end) charger and have not found it.
I believe the small store is located on Trần Hưng Đạo. I found a few on the same street (if I am correct in that being the street).  As a starting point on that street try the intersection of Cau Ong Lanh then go NE or SW.
I have the charger with me now in Da Lat --which lasted about 3 months--and will attempt to find the store when I pass through HCMC for a replacement in November. The warranty is a sticker time-marked on the charger and, in my experience, the receipt is not needed for a replacement.
For Da Lat, I can make recommendations now if any is interested.
I've found a range in prices and warranties. The store in HCMC gave a one year warranty.
1 or 2 places even supposedly offer a replacement regardless as to where you are in Vietnam.
If anyone has ideas as to how to repurpose dead chargers, let us know.
Good luck.

I hate to say I told you so but:  How much did you really save with that Chinese charger?  We are not even counting time and trouble.


Besides the warranty issue, it seems that the greatest danger is not so much that you will damage the MacBook but that the charger itself could burn up.  Good luck to you.

You can go to Ton That Tung street, many shops there, for example:

Hope this helps
