The power supply for my 2011 11-inch Macbook Air has died. I've attempted to repair it but it appears to be completely dead, not just a bad cable.
Before I fork out $130 (!!!) for a new Apple 45w power supply/adapter, has anyone had experience with purchasing a third-party equivalent on eBay or elsewhere, or does anyone have any cheaper recommendations? Any tales of caution are welcomed too, as it'll help bolster any reinforcement I'll need to justify purchasing the genuine article. Thanks guys!

Mac Fixit have the 45 watt Macbook Air MagSafe 1 adaptor for $89 which is a bit cheaper :)
