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.

  • 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.

I thought my adapter wasn't connected properly, but it wasn't the case. The scenario: Battery fully charged. Remaining time about 8hours. I plug the charger back and play Dota 2 for 6 hours. Exit dota and see the battery has only 80% of charge. The adapter is very hot. I think, the top of the line macs should have at least 100W Power Adapter. The Graphics, the CPU it consumes way more power than the Adapter is capable of "producing"

My issue with these chargers is not the magnet as other posters say, its the working life. I have gone through 3 chargers in the last 3 years for the one computer. I final had to buy a second charger so that I can be prepared for the next time

    I've had the L-shaped MagSafe for my 2009 MacBook Pro and strangely, it's never frayed and I've had it under constant usage for 3 I've had the L-shaped MagSafe for my 2009 MacBook Pro and strangely, it's never frayed and I've had it under constant usage for 3 whole years. In November of 2013, I made the decision of buying the new retina MacBook Pro Retina and the computer was perfect for what I was using it for, but the MagSafe 2 let me down. My first MagSafe failed in about April of 2014 when the cord near the adapter had frayed and I had no choice but to buy a new one; also, the connection between the MagSafe 2 and my Mac felt a lot weaker than my old L-shaped MagSafe. As of right now (March of 2015), my second MagSafe 2 has just frayed and I've resorted to electrical tape rather than 80 dollars. Please fix this apple.
