I've 2 Thinkpad T-series chargers with frayed charger wires -
they both work some of the time but often fail.
I have other chargers which work fine
so the fault seems to lie in the connection to the plug
that goes into the back of the computer.

Is it possible to remove this plug and re-solder the wire to it?
I tried this but it seemed to be very difficult
to take off the plastic surround to the plug.
Or is it possible to buy a new plug and replace the present one?
