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.......

It's like Number 3 for this model Mac, my 5th additional apple charger to date. Shoddy piece of equipment. It literally explodes. It's like it has a timer built in set to go exactly every 16 months. You have no choice but to replace it with the same again. If someone else makes a charger for them I'm interested.

    They become *incredibly* hot - as in, you can't even hold the thing. Mine actually continued to work while in this state, until it suddenly shut off and stopped charging my macbook. I was confused, went over to it, and as soon as I touched it... yeah. I realised why it had stopped working. Hot enough you could probably boil an egg on it (and considering its entirely plastic, the fact the exterior can get so incredibly hot says something about how hot the 'core' must be)
