Product Information

  • The 45-Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook Air features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain, and 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 will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Redesigned specifically for MacBook Air, the adapter is the perfect travelling companion. It 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 only with MacBook Air with MagSafe Power Port.

It's act Unsurprisingly, the 45W version is just as reliable as the others. Flimsy would be a generous adjective for this charger. It's actually quite dangerous how easily this breaks and had I been a bit less careless, I could've had a nasty shock. I will not be giving Apple the satisfaction of getting an extortionate replacement from them when there are far cheaper alternatives.

    Just had to replace my 3 year old unit that's travelled around the world several times, been used in the most unusual conditions. Just had to replace my 3 year old unit that's travelled around the world several times, been used in the most unusual conditions. I can't count how many times the mag-safe feature has saved my MBA from flying off a desk, flight case, lap by popping off when yanked. In fact, I'd say those yanking out moments are where the cable gets the damage from. I'd rather replace that than the laptop.

    Those people complaining about 1 year lifespan - what the heck are you doing to it?!?!?!?

    The only reason I'm not giving it 5* is because the cables are a bit bent awkwardly out of the box. Yeah, stupid reason, but I like my cables coiled nice.

    Having just had to buy my third adapter in three and a half years, I can only agree with the majority of the other reviews on here Having just had to buy my third adapter in three and a half years, I can only agree with the majority of the other reviews on here. After the first one went, I was extremely careful with the second one, but if anything it died even more quickly. How can Apple continue to produce such a poor product AND charge such an extortionate price for it?

    Just about to order a third replacement as you can't get them from anywhere else!

    The thin wire from the adapter to the compute Just about to order a third replacement as you can't get them from anywhere else!

    The thin wire from the adapter to the computer wears and breaks as it leaves the protective collar (which is too stiff to protect the wire and, I suspect, actually just serves to sever it more quickly).

    For a company that designs such beautiful computers, this is very disappointing.
