Magsafe 2 60w: How to identify power connections on board?
RE: Magsafe 2 60w (for 13.3” MB Pro retina)
I’m attempting to replace the power cord on one of these
and want to check the correct connections.
I’m soldering the replacement cord to the connections on the board in this case, in want to know the correct wires to solder which terminal. The replacement cord I have has one inner white sheathed wire and an outer bare wire surrounding it that needs to be separated (see image. 1 below).
I’m aware of how to strip/ separate/ prepare these based on the guides on here, but I’m unsure of which terminal to connect them to on the MagSafe’s board.
Below is an image of the Magsafe’s board I have.
Question is: which terminal to connect the white (inner) wire to, and which the bare (outer one?)
It could be the case I’ve killed it already on my first attempt. Previously I repaired the same by just soldering to the existing wire - which may have been a better option…
Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks greatly, that’s pretty helpful; it’s hard to tell for sure the correct way round from that video though, it ‘looks’ like it’s the white (inner) wire to the terminal nearest the yellow capacitor.
Can anyone here give a more definitive answer maybe?
ie: “ white (inner) wire to terminal nearest yellow capacitor “ for sure/ 100% / etc
Sorry to be pedantic here, just wish to avoid killing/ shorting it…
