Why is my charger not working?

Hi all! So I have a MacBook 13” 2013 that’s been with me for a couple of years. I just came home from backpacking for around 8 months while working part time from my MacBook. For the last month of the trip, my charger started to act weird. I have a third-party charger with a ‘brick’ that has a small light when taking charge and I’d have to hold the cable in specific angles for the computer to take charge. I figured the charger was starting to break and after a week or two the MagSafe-contact stopped taking charge (the light on the connector wouldn’t light up/MacBook wouldn’t charge) unless the cable was specifically aligned. Eventually, this gave out completely. I could see that the power brick was receiving power from the outlet but there was no way I could angle the cable so that my MacBook would receive any power.

I have now arrived home and bought a USB-C - MagSafe 2 replacement cable but my computer won’t charge from that either.

What could be wrong and what should I do? Many thanks!

I would inspect the systems MagSafe port for dirt and discolored contacts. Use a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol to clean things and a fresh pink pencil eraser to scrub the contacts.

Given the systems age it’s also likely the battery has seen its end. Lithium Ion batteries tend to only last at best three to four years.
