Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)
Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)
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. …

Even the store reps say it's poor quality

I try to meticulously take care of my cords, but yet in still the casing is stretched or ripped. I also think the magnets are not nearly strong enough. Please create a better product. Cords are essential. I would like one strong enough to last. It seems I have to buy a new cord once per year. …

Not worthy of such an expensive laptop
My first one died after 2 years, cable connection at the main unit became intermittent. So, 80 bucks to Apple for another one. 2 My first one died after 2 years, cable connection at the main unit became intermittent. So, 80 bucks to Apple for another one. 2+ years later it only makes intermittent connection due to the 2 piece design, EVERY TIME I USE IT I have to wiggle the smaller piece until I get a solid green light, EVERY TIME. Also, the rubber coating on the cable bunched up near the connector that attaches to the laptop (2008 MBP), for no known reason. So much of it bunched up I just ripped off the excess manually. Disappointing, seems like the vast number of people reviewing this are giving it a 1 star for a good reason, hopefully Apple takes note but looking at the retina laptops it doesn't seem like it did. …

Can this charger be used to recharge an iPhone 4s. I am travelling and do not want to bring two chargers
- Asked by James J from Baulkham Hills

No, it can not
This charger is to charge charge the macbook pro with retina display, the iPhone r No, it can not
This charger is to charge charge the macbook pro with retina display, the iPhone requires a 32 pin connector (gen 1-4S) et the new adapter for gen 5. Those chargers are not compatible at all.
I suppose you are bringing a computer since you talk about two charger, I therefore recommend charging the iPhone in the computer (with the usb cable) while the computer is charging if you want to bring less chargers.
Also, I am pretty sure there are travel kits sold on this website. You may want to check them especially if you are travelling in Europe since they don't have the same wall plugs as here in America. But even those travels kits would have a different connector for the iPhone et the mac. …
