    The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it.

Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor!

    As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing.

    We work 8 of them at work, 5 of which stoped working suddenly. It works sometimes and when it does it gets super hot.

I attempted to clean it, clean the computer outlet, wiggle it around - nothing. Ended up having to buy a whole new charger. Waste of cash. Don't get this converter. You're better off biting the bullet and purchasing a new charger or even go 3rd party.

    It's sturdy, grips tightly (I can't remove it from my MagSafe cable without using two hands, so if I yank the cable from the MacBo It's sturdy, grips tightly (I can't remove it from my MagSafe cable without using two hands, so if I yank the cable from the MacBook the adapter stays safely on).

    I can't fault it.
