Product Information

  • The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adapter has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

  • Power adaptors do not last

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past beca Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

    I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.

    I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power ad I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.

    I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months.

    Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month!

    I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

  • New and Better than the Old MagSafe

    I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feel I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feels differently built (for the better), it doesn't nearly get as hot as the old MagSafe did (incredibly this one stays very cool, even on extended periods of time, although that could be because it's new.) Lastly, the actual connector is pretty innovative, feels much sturdier and less prone to fire/breaking/separation issues. It also wraps around a better/more effective contour. All in all, for $79 compared to $99, and the benefits i've named, it's a much better buy than the previous MagSafe (still overpriced, apple)

When this Macbook dies i will not buy another Apple product to replace it. This adapter does not last. It breaks and after a while wigggling of the cord does not match the image of a good quality product that we are paying a premium price for.

    I have bought chargers three times in the past year for all my apple devices (Apple iPhone, Apple Tablet, and Apple Macbook Pro) . It's expensive for no reason and the quality of the rubber covering and metal underneath are damaged too easily.
    Apple really needs to do something differently going forward with their designs because if not I will have to invest my money elsewhere.

  • 2nd power adapter in 4 1/2 years

    2.0 out of 5 stars

    The charging function has always worked great, but the cord from the brick to the MacBook seems weak and the rubber sheathing fray The charging function has always worked great, but the cord from the brick to the MacBook seems weak and the rubber sheathing frays. The first replacement was done under AppleCare when the MacBook was about 2 years old. Now, 2 1/2 years later, it's happened again. This adapter sits at home, I don't wrap the cord around the little handles, I always disconnect it by grabbing the MagSafe connector, yet the fraying just happened. I take care of my stuff, and I think Apple made a mistake here with either design or materials.

    I'm not going to quibble - $79 over 4 1/2 years isn't a big deal - but based on the distribution of the ratings of these reviews, I'd say there's a problem that Apple needs to address.
