    What's going on here?

    • Written by from Thurmont

    I'm not sure about the charred and fraying wires phenomenon everyone seems to be experiencing. Mine is two years old and it is still just the same as the day I bought my Mac. This one in particular charges my Mac far quicker than it has any right to, and without getting nearly as hot as the old MagSafe. Granted I treat my technology very well, but it still seems odd to me.

    That said, the ergonomics of this stupid thing are absolutely pitiful. I wouldn't be stupid enough to let my $1600 Mac attached to a cable someone is going to trip over in the first place, so why did you have to make it even more easily detachable?

    Fix this issue, Apple. Absolutely unacceptable oversight.

    A significant step backwards

    • Written by from Grayslake

    The massive number of bad reviews demonstrates that Apple screwed up with this product.
    I'm surprised they haven't addressed the problem yet. The previous version wasn't perfect but it worked much better than this one.
    If you are shopping for a replacement, consider getting a v1 MagSafe adapter and the $10 adapter. It's a better alternative.

    The worst

    The adapter falls out easily, with the slightest pressure. The cost of the adapter is certainly not justified.
