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.

I am not a After spending over £2500 on a laptop I would have expected the charger to have lasted a little longer that 16 months. I am not a heavy user but the charger had now 'frayed' at the mag 2 connector showing the metal grading around the cable itself. It is a poorly designed and poorly constructed piece of equipment which lets down the whole product. I just wonder what Apple were thinking of.......

It is dangerous and a fire hazard. Today the cable coming out of the main unit melted exposing the internal wires. In the process it melted a hole in the carpet it was sitting on. Overheating seems to be a recurrent problem with this design. Tomorrow I will see what the Mac Store has to say about this. I assume that they will replace the product for free.

  • Planned obsolescence? to the point of being dangerous

    As mentioned in nearly all the other reviews for this charger, it is prone to overheating and burning out at the wire near the bas As mentioned in nearly all the other reviews for this charger, it is prone to overheating and burning out at the wire near the base of the transformer. It's complete bobbins and the price is just ridiculous. Given Apple's usual design and engineering ability, I'm incredibly suspicious that it was built to fail, and this is a way of making money by planned obsolescence. Mine just went (AGAIN) via an overheat, and the discolouration that has appeared on the plastic coating to the wire looks suspiciously like something has been burning.

Despite clearly h I've always been a big fan of Apple products but this power supply definitely isn't up to their usual standards. Despite clearly having a design fault that causes the cable to short out, split and blacken near the transformer, Apple refuse to take any responsibility for its failure. "You've bent the cable" they tell me - err, yes, at the point where you're supposed to wrap the cable around the little pop out 'hooks' on either side of the PSU as per the manual supplied with the MacBook Pro Retina. Does Apple take responsibility for this? Nope - they fobbed us off and refused to replace the power supply. I guess we should just be thankful that it didn't cause a fire! But then Apple wouldn't have cared about that either, I suspect...

    Very, VERY poor show, Apple. Today my love affair with Apple came to a very abrupt end. Your products may look lovely and shiny but it would seem that you don't stand by them once they're outside the warranty period even when it's clear that the design of the product is faulty.
