3rd Party Macbook Chargers Safe?

in General Discussion
I have a 2008 white Macbook with a broken keyboard that I would like to connect to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard for my kids. Since I have an Apple mouse and keyboard already, it's a pretty inexpensive setup, except for the fact that I don't have an extra power cord for the old Macbook. I'd rather not spend $79 on the Apple brand 60W cord and go with a cheaper option, but I'm hesitant. I've purchased a third-party charger in the past and the cord wore out within months of daily use. However, this setup would be stationary because I'm essentially turning the Macbook into a desktop computer with the kids. So my question now is whether 3rd party chargers are safe, or is going the cheap route a bad idea in this case?
