    has been rock solid

    • Written by from San Diego

    I've had one running in my office for 6 months without any issue at all. I've read the reviews of these stopping to charge all of a sudden, but I have never had that experience. I bought 2--one for my office and one for home. The one in my office stays plugged into a power cable that says there so it is never disconnected from the magsafe magnet; don't know if that matters.

    My second one (at home) lasted 3-4 months. This one went in my backpack and was in and out. But I lost it. That's my fault; I know they are small and easy to los. I can't blame Apple for that one. I'll probably replace it because it's so convenient (I have several power cords around the house so I can plug in anywhere, and I don't want to start buying a bunch of magsafe 2 cords.

    All in all, they did what they were intended to do reliably for me.

    It works.

    • Written by from Rockwood

    I have read a mixed bag of reviews here but I can say that on a 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina the adapter in perfect and is not subject to falling out or not working if moved in anyway. It has a solid hold and resists being pulled out as well as the MagSafe 2 connection. No doubt others are having some issues but I am happy that for my set up the adaptor works great.

    Mine works fine.

    • Written by from los angeles

    I just upgraded my MacBook Pro and noticed they changed the power connection. Since I had 2 MagSafe cords already I thought I'd roll the dice.
    There are quite a few negative reviews but I gotta say mine works perfectly. Maybe they fixed the problem.

    Works as Expected

    • Written by from Louisville

    I still have the 85-Watt MagSafe power supply from the very first MacBook Pro (early 2006). This adapter allows me to use that power supply with my new MacBook Pro (late 2013). I does exactly what it says with no problems.

    Product works great with appropriate expectations

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I am not sure what the negative reviews of this are for. It is a converter and it works great. It has a strong enough magnet to primarily remain with the cord. The light on the cord works fine when charging. That said it is a separate unit and if you expect it to be permanently attached it is not....so treat it with some care. If you understand that, it is a great alternative to buying a new power cord.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Live Oak

    I purchased a MBA and I have a 24 in Display and couldn't understand why the cable didn't fit. After checking online and reading some of the information provided on the Apple Site, I discovered the display had a Mag and the MBA was Mag2. The adapter allows me to keep my MBA power supply in my case and it has worked flawlessly. I think the people that are complaining should consider the cost of a new power supply vs $10.00!

    It works! Well worth the price--made my 24” Cinema Display usable with my new 13” MacBook Pro w/Retina. Very happy!

    It's as good as MacSafe 2 itself

    • Written by from San Jose

    Let's be honest here: the old L-shaped MagSafe 1 connector was far superior, it had a very strong and reliable connection. The new MagSafe 2 gets disconnected much easier.

    However, people who claim that this converter thing is loose simply don't factor in that the original power supply is exactly as loose. This converter is no worse than the new MagSafe 2 connector itself! So if you have a rMBP or MBA, then you have MagSafe 2, and nothing will change that. You either spend a lot of money buying a second power supply, or you spend $9.99 for this converter, and they're equally as good (or as bad).

    Using the converter is pretty much the same as using the new factory power supply. Yes, it gets disconnected too easily, like the factory power supply. We may complain about MagSafe 2 itself, but this adapter is as good as it gets. I'm using it with my TB display, and it does the same job as the laptop's power supply.

    If you want to give feedback to Apple, by all means complain about the new connector. But I'm giving feedback to other consumers here: this converter is a good purchase anyway, if it prevents you from buying a brand new full power supply.

    MagSafe to MagSafe 2?

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    This converter is a must. Why Apple changed a perfectly working device to the MagSafe 2 is beyond me... the MagSafe 2 is terrible and pulls out twice as easy. And when you use this converter - it is even worse as far as accidental pull-out.

    Best $10 I ever spent at the Apple Store

    • Written by from New Orleans

    These converters are great. I don't have to trash my old adapters that I keep in my office, home, briefcase, etc. Best of all, I don't have to spend the money to buy new ones.

    works very well. magnetic attachment.

    • Written by from Keller

    I use this with a 60W adapter and it works great. I keep adapter on my home charger, so I don't loose the little thing while I travel. It connects magnetically to both the power cord and computer, so it doesn't fall off. Only downside is when I unplug the power supply the adapter sometimes sticks to the laptop, so I have to pull it off.

    Better than the Magsafe 2 adaptor alone

    • Written by from LEANDER

    If you read my review of the 85W Magsafe 2 adapter "Magnet not Strong Enough" and many others you will find that the native Magsafe 2 adaptor supplied with the MBP Retina Display is too weak to work with, it falls out constantly. This is the solution, use this with your older chargers or EVEN BUY A NEW 85W MAGSAFE 1 or 1.5 and USE THIS ADAPTOR instead of the magsafe 2 adaptor by itself. Unless your household is accident prone with children or wild pets, you will probably be happer this way, with a power adapter that doesn't fall out ever time you pickup your laptop or move. It is surprisingly strong where you won't loose it, and will still break away in moderate conditions, not all conditions (like if your laptop is at the edge of a slippery table and it is pulled at the right angle.) This is a the best solutions for adults that need to get work done and not worry about their adaptor falling out.

    Cost effective way to use old power supplies on new laptops

    • Written by from Hewitt

    Sometimes when a hardware change breaks compatibility, you have to spend a lot of money on new gear or expensive adapters. At $10, this allows you to use older power supplies with newer laptops without the expense of spending $80 on a new power supply. And, it works well. I was afraid it would separate or come apart or be a fragile connection. But, it holds tightly to the old power supply plug and works seamlessly.
