Cheapest genuine Retina Macbook Pro Charger?

Retina Macbook Chargers are horrendous! My first charger overheated and I initially thought I yanked the cable and broke it but upon reading online reviews it seems it may have melted on its own. I bought a cheaper replacement one off ebay but that only lasted a couple of months. Just wondering where the best place to get a replacement is? Apple store has them for $120! Which is exorbitant imo, but then that is in line with everything apple i guess :(

mine gets pretty hot and the cable has turned brown. it's cos apple want the MacBooks to charge quickly.

anyway look at this site https://www.laptopbattery.co.nz/Laptop-adapters/Apple/85w-Magsafe-A1343-1222-HiQual-Repl-Adapter-LBN51470.htm

not genuine but they sell good quality stuff

Thanks for the fast response! Looks quite similar to the one I bought off ebay haha. How long has your charger lasted for? They do charge quick, I will give you that :)

About 16 months. It still works fine though
