    Poor show from Apple

    • Written by from London

    I completely concur with the previous Gentleman's comments; we have a MacBook Pro and a Mac Book air and have gone through two cables in less than two years. I have an old Dell laptop which has been carried all around the world and the cable is still going strong 4 years on - Apple it is a very poor show. At £65 a cable it is pure day light robbery!

    Almost perfect

    • Written by from Kilwinning

    Love the extension cord that makes it longer.

    There are 2 *slight issues that I've had that knock it off a 5 star review;
    1) The t shape of the MagSafe connector means that sitting in bed, sometimes the connecter sometimes slips off when you move.
    2) If you sit anything on top the white plastic block (ie a duvet cover) it will overheat, go scalding hot and stop charging your macbook. But let's be honest, you know not to do that if you read the product warnings. However this won't break your connector. It will just shut off until it's cooled back down, then begin working again as normal.

    Ignore the 1 star reviews, one of whom even issued a one star review because he bought the wrong cable!

    Not robust

    • Written by from Pewsey

    The power adaptor looks good and the magnetic connection is a great idea as it prevents the laptop being pulled off a desk or surface. However, the unit itself is of poor build quality and easily breaks - usually through the wire splitting as it comes out of the adaptor. When this happens the unit has to be replaced. For £65 I expect a much better build quality.

    Needs to be more robust

    • Written by from Blackpool

    I have a Macbook Pro late 2011 and I'm just about to buy its third power cord. At £65 this is extremely disappointing. Don't mind paying premium for a great product, but I do mind paying this much for a product that is obviously not fit for purpose and not manufactured to a high enough standard for its likely use. Given the number of reviews making this same point, isn't it about time Apple did something about it?

    Terrible Quality

    • Written by from stoke on trent

    I have never written a review before but this really annoyed me, my computer is 1 year and 1 week old so apple told me it was out of warranty, but even if it had been under warranty the lead is not covered. i have looked after this product properly only storing it correctly, putting the least strain on the lead, and after a year the cable collapsed and won't charge my computer, which i need everyday. so now i have to go and purchase a new one for £65. the lead is a great design but terrible quality.

    Another Poor Show

    I'm also just gone through my second cable in less than a year - what other options do we have? None!

    Worse Apple Product EVER

    • Written by from Bristol

    Why did Apple change the power adapter?! We have 2 MacBook Airs and 1 MacBook Pro and wanted a spare adapter. Not only have they changed the design so its doesn't fit our old computers (the "experts at the Apple Store never pointed this out) but apparently (reading the reviews) it doesn't work as well as before either. Come on Apple you could do better than that!
