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.

  • Magnet not Strong Enough

    I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T des I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T design but the magnet holding it in is way to weak. I don't know if it is because its smaller profile, but I can barely touch my laptop without the thing falling out. It is becoming extremely annoying to the point where I might need to walk around with a brand new MBP with its power cord duct taped to it! I believe the magnets are in the systems itself but please Apple come out with a revised adapter with a second set of neodymium magnets in the charging tip to counter act the problem and grab the machine tighter. I'd rather it be bulkier and work properly. I understand the point that is supposed to break away, but not by a feather landing on it! We miss Steve Jobs. I hope this isn't the type of product glitches we will have to get accustomed to now. Apple is supposed to be Apple, This isn't Apple at all.

It should have been designed w The unit is a pain to store in a laptop case trying not to break the cable from the main powerhead. It should have been designed with a quick disconnect head, like on the other end, where you can coil the cable and store properly. Then if this wire is in need of replacement, it isn't $80.00 for the entire unit, just a cable.

    Well, it’s been three years for me instead of 1.5 or two, but this adapter has finally had it. There have been breakages in the wi Well, it’s been three years for me instead of 1.5 or two, but this adapter has finally had it. There have been breakages in the wire for some time, requiring a bit of fiddling before the charge light would come on, but now the insulation is coming off in three different places, including, as at least one other reviewer mentioned, right in the middle.

    By now I’ve actually been conditioned to expect dissatisfaction from Apple cables and adapters: a new device inevitably brings a slew of new adapters and dongles that aren’t compatible with what came before, nor with what will come after. Hopefully the USB-C that’s appearing in the new 12" Macbook heralds the end of at least some of this nonsense.

    At least I’m relatively confident now that whatever store I pop into will have a replacement in stock: Apple and their resellers must sell truckloads of these things.

    To give Apple a tiny bit of credit, sure, I’ve had to replace a bunch of faulty power adapters over the years. But before I switched from PC, I’d hardly manage to get a laptop to last more than a year or two. But Apple’s computers can actually last pretty well. My Dad’s still using a Powerbook G4 I bought more than 10 years ago.

  • Horrible product. I'd put zero stars if I could!

    First of all, even if this adapter were well designed and manufactured, it shouldn't cost so much to replace it if needed. Outrage First of all, even if this adapter were well designed and manufactured, it shouldn't cost so much to replace it if needed. Outrageous!
    After paying so much for this computer, the last thing I want is to shell out more money for an adapter that has already proven itself to function badly and fall apart quickly.
    What's wrong with this adaptor?
    * It comes unplugged way too easily
    * It pulls out of the computer constantly. The magnet isn't strong enough
    * Within a short time, it has gotten badly frayed near where it attaches to my laptop
    This adapter gets worse reviews than most of the knockoffs, which doesn't surprise me.
    C'mon, Apple, keep up your reputation for great design and improve this lemon!
