Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air

Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air

Product Information

  • The 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Air 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 a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which 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 only with MacBook Air featuring MagSafe 2 power port.

    Quite careful with my equipment. This one simply stopped working under no significant stress conditions. Quality control alert.

When I saw the reviews I thought they were joking. I feel like sending the entire laptop back because of the adapter. It falls off for no reason and gets in the way. Apple needs to do a recall.

The new MagSafe 2 hasn't been available for that long - only since the new 2012 MBA's came out in mid-June. The new MagSafe 2's charger attachment magnet is incredibly weak and will detach at the slightest provocation. Or unhappy thought. Or suspicious look. This product is terrible and Apple should fix this as soon as possible.

    Dead, after 8 months. I can get it to work 10% of the time by "playing" with it, but most of the time it's not worth the trouble! Dead, after 8 months. I can get it to work 10% of the time by "playing" with it, but most of the time it's not worth the trouble! This is a POS like I didn't know Apple was capable of.

    After a year and a half of gentle use, my MagSafe 2 adapter has already stopped working! What has been happening to Apple lately? After a year and a half of gentle use, my MagSafe 2 adapter has already stopped working! What has been happening to Apple lately? The reason we all pay more money for Apple stuff is because it works, and now Apple products aren't really working that well anymore, not good. I still love me my Apple devices but this is a serious let down.
