I agree with Richard, something has to fail, and the cable should be the
thing to fail rather than the laptop ... and the point where the cable
exits the strain relief of either end is what should fail.

But my original reading of what you said suggests the failures are at
the AC end of the cable ... the power supply housing is a "big green
plug" and it goes into the wall power socket.

Which is it?
