Default Charger for Macbook?

In my haste at packing I have forgotten to pack my Macbook Pro charger.

Schoolboy error I know. Has anyone any idea where on the Island I might get a charger from, have only seen phone chargers so far anywhere

Thanks

Vincent

Chinese shop or one of the electrical shops in the port?

Most have phone chargers but the Macbook one is totally different. It's a 60W Magnetic or MagSafe attachment. I have never seen a chinese copy of one, mainly because Apple have taking anybody who ever copied their design to court to have it stopped.

Are there any Apple authorised resellers in the Port? Would most likely be a large electrical store or chain?

A few links:
Apple Macintosh and iPad Stores in Palma / Spain

different chargers
Charging Devices - Mac Accessories - Apple Store (UK)

I would buy it from www.amazon.es and have it delivered to a local collection point, there are two in the old town and one in the port.

Use the chrome browser to auto translate www.amazon.es and log in with your usual UK details, you will need to conform your card number when delivering to a collection point.

make sure Amazon is despatching not a third party, last time I did this it took 3 days from order to delivery in Pollenca and as you are there until the 24th there is plenty of time.

Not worth wasting holiday time driving around

edit: It is the .es store, not the Uk that the site keeps inserting links to !

Can only find stores in Palma, unless anyone else may help, some kind member may have a spare or can lend you one!

Try Confort, they are very helpful and if they don't have one they might be able to get one brought up from Palma .
