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 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.......

After 12 months the cable frayed and split next to the adapter. I took extra care with the second however after only 9 months the cable melted next to the adapter while the battery was charging and I was running an intensive 3D application. Fortunately it was replaced under warranty.

    The adapter gets very hot while charging and running when the laptop is in use and the cable appears to be too thin for the max power consumption.

    Apple need to up the spec. of the cable and improve the design of the adapter.

    If you are using a laptop, there is a significant chance that you are a mobile person. That means you need to carry the cable with you for most of the times to charge the device. You may not have all the world's time to pack your cable and here comes the trouble: The end point of the thin part of adapter is so weak and fragile that eventually it frays and becomes useless!

    I am surprised how Apple overlooked when they designed this adapter. I am sorry but you cannot present such non-durable adapters to your customers!

    I absolutely love my mac laptop but after only having it for 13 months my charger has broke. Its not even a fuse that has gone in I absolutely love my mac laptop but after only having it for 13 months my charger has broke. Its not even a fuse that has gone in the plug itself, its the box onwards. It heats up a lot which I think is a main issue. Im really disappointed that I am now having to spend out on a new charger especially because I am a student, its very expensive for me.
