    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.

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.

    I bought one of these it worked for a couple weeks then stopped charging. It will hold the current battery level but wont charge I bought one of these it worked for a couple weeks then stopped charging. It will hold the current battery level but wont charge the battery. I purchased another one and it did not work at all. I have tried this with two separate charges with no success. Im really surprised apple is ok with selling such a piece of junk, and am baffled as to why there are so many problems with such a simple piece of hardware.

But after a few months the light stopped turning on and the mac would say that it's receiving power but not charging. I would have to unplug it and plug it in again till the light turned on and the mac would say it's charging. Like other reviews mentioned, the adapter gets very hot occasionally. The adapter stays on magnetically, so of course there's always the possibility that it could fall off and get lost. The price is pretty decent. But remember, you get what you pay for.
