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.

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.

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.......

The people who are complaining must use their equipment in very strange (inappropriate) conditions. Melting power bricks and frayed wires sound like a user-related issues. If you are careful when you wind your cable up and keep the power adapter in a sensible location, it will last you a long time. That said, as an owner of a Summer 2012 Retina MacBook Pro, I've noticed a little bit of small cracking in the rubber cable shielding near the input point on the brick. This is the point that gets the most stress, as it is where the cable is pulled to its greatest angle when winding it up for storage. It would be nice to see Apple considering the potential for this kind of wear; a stronger, more flexible support point would be useful.

The original Magsafe was great because it didn´t stick out and protuded to the side, but was sleek and the cable went back and around the chassis (dependable which way you stuck it in). This new one could be cutting edge in 1995. I am constantly knocking it off its socket, and magnet seems to be weaker as well. Jobs would NEVER allow this horrendous redesign. The excuse of changing it due to their new thin macbook retinas is something i refuse to believe. CHANGE IT BACK!!!

After having more than 20 windows based laptops over the years and never having a faulty power adapter I feel absolutely disgusted and let down by Apple.
