Default my Ipad Charging Cable frayed is this dangerous?

so my ipad 2 cable looks like it frayed today the white coating is falling off near the spot that I plug it in to the ipad 2 to charge, now what Im wondering is if I accidentally touch the the part under the white coding can I get Shocked? or is there another coding underneath?

It looks blueish.

Hoggy, did you try taking it to the applestore? Sometimes they will just change things for free if it is a danger. I would neglect power stuff too much, can start a fire.

There aren't any Apple Stores in NZ, so...

Do they accept international products?

Maybe it's still under warranty at the retailer/distributor in NZ. I've had good experiences with Official/Approved Apple resellers in the past... They may just exchange it for you.

How much do 30pin cables go for these days? I'm sure they dropped in price after Lightning cables took center-stage.

I've seen them in the pound shops in the uk, but wouldn't like to comment on the quality.

I replace all my cables with the ones from Rocketfish. They don't fall apart like Apple's cables do and they don't stop working after a week like the cheap impostors do. One purchase and it's done. I'm always taking my cables to work and back so they take some abuse and I've never had to replace a Rocketfish cable.

Since you are my friend, I can ship you a free brand new Apple original 30 pin connector if you want to pay postage. Will save you $30?

Just question is, how much will the cheapest shipping be?

Email me if you like. Power stuff, you gotta be careful with cause of fire potential. Never charge on carpet with your cable. Do it on tile or something.
