    Although I don't really get the problem fully (not sure what you mean) I think you mean to say your cable is fractured somewhere near the tip. Either that or the socket is broken on your laptop side. Both can't do all that much damage aside from spikey network load (power net) but could also be a fire hazard (though I have yet to see that). Just get it fixed [​IMG].

    Power fluctuations can cause damage to any electrical device. The charger itself will take the power spike caused by turning it off and on from the mains, and it should be able to last a very long while before the components wear out, but the fact that the wire is damaged on the laptop end means that the battery won't get a stable power supply, and that is one of the biggest factors to batteries dying (along with heat and excessive charge cycles).

    Best to get it fixed/replaced.
