Are the 85W Magsafe Power Adapter and the Power Adapter, 85 W, Energy Star the same thing? Is it (Energy Star) a chinese version of the Magsafe?

I am from Brazil, and my Magsafe does not work anymore for it was exposed to the hot sun for too long (I guess). And while searching for a new one, I noticed that the prices are quite different. The description of the cheapest power adapter was that one (Power Adapter, 85 W, Energy Star), from an autorized dealer. Even so, I am worried.

  • According to what i have been told by the support agent from apple care the power adapter 85w energy star is the new improved version of the 85w magsafe power adaptor. My Magsafe adaptor broke down without any obvious reason and will be replaced by the Energy star version.
