Product Information

  • The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone trips over it, the lead disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also 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 lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you 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 Pro with Retina display.

  • Magnet not Strong Enough

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T des I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T design but the magnet holding it in is way to weak. I don't know if it is because its smaller profile, but I can barely touch my laptop without the thing falling out. It is becoming extremely annoying to the point where I might need to walk around with a brand new MBP with its power cord duct taped to it! I believe the magnets are in the systems itself but please Apple come out with a revised adapter with a second set of neodymium magnets in the charging tip to counter act the problem and grab the machine tighter. I'd rather it be bulkier and work properly. I understand the point that is supposed to break away, but not by a feather landing on it! We miss Steve Jobs. I hope this isn't the type of product glitches we will have to get accustomed to now. Apple is supposed to be Apple, This isn't Apple at all.

This product is dreadful, but I find myself having to buy the second power adaptor since I purchase my mac book pro (making it three since purchase that have broken all in the same place). I simply do not have an alternative and I am frankly angry and disappointed at apple for not addressing this design issue.

    80 1 star ratings Apple (mine will make it 81). How many people do you need to tell you that your product is pants?! As far as I am concerned you have stolen £130 for me. As a faithful apple user I feel thoroughly let down and ignored.

    I had a 2009 Macbook 15" I paid $2000 for and the power adapter was 100% awesome. Never had an issue, used it and abused it.

    I paid $2500 for this Late 2013 Mac. Power cord lasted less than 1.5 years before the cord frayed. This needs to be recalled for terrible quality and design. The thing not only heats up like crazy, but the cord literally melted and now the wires are exposed. Nice job apple. Nice job.

I am now on my third replacement. Having just opened the box and plugged this third item in for 10 minutes it is too hot to touch. I am really worried that it may cause a fire.

    But what do I do? this is the official Apple item and I need to be able to use my Mac Book for work. Apple have me over a barrel!
