Works but easily detached
The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.
The converter's m The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.
The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it. …

Great way to extend the life of existing adapters
Does what it claims to. Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but th Does what it claims to. Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor!
As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing. …

Beats buying another new $70+ power plug but I still feel ripped off for having to buy this in the first place. …

I travel frequently, so rather than bundle up the MagSafe 2 cord and travel with it, I was planning to buy a new Magsafe 2 cord and keep it in my briefcase when I travel. Thank you apple for creating this handy little adapter to solve all my problems. Less than $10, and I received it from fedex less than 24 hours after I ordered it. …

Works exactly the way it should

I suppose the reasoning is that lots of people have older chargers, and they're buying new computers, so it makes sense to have an adapter like this one, but few people are going to be buying new chargers for old computers, since Apple still sells the old chargers. It's possible there are some people desiring an adapter that goes the other way, but it's likely a very small number of users. …
