Sugru Moldable Glue is available from Amazon in white, to match Apple's cables, in a large pack of 8 for $22, or a smaller pack of 3 starting at $11.20. Either amount will provide more than enough to repair a number of damaged cables.
If you have a collection of different cable types and colors, Sugru also comes in a multi-color variety pack of 8, including both black and white, for $17.85.
We've been using Sugru Moldable Glue on what was a badly damaged MacBook Pro MagSafe 2 cable for a few weeks now, and are generally pleased with the result. Internal wires that were previously exposed and coming apart are now securely covered, preventing exposure and further damage.
Taken out of the box, Sugru is a putty-like substance that can be shaped into any shape or size you need it to fit.(The article continues...)
