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

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.

First evening with my new MacBook Pro and I've disconnected the magsafe unwillingly over a dozen times. What have you done?? The tiny lateral connector we had until now was perfect.

This charger, lik It is completely outrageous that a company like Apple would produce a charging cable like this for its products. This charger, like all other Apple MacBook chargers I have owned, gets far too hot when a device is charging. The cable is also far too week and frays very easily, so much so that my current changer has now stopped working all together. I am now forced to spend over £60 purchase a new charger- you would think that after spending more than £1500 on a laptop that Apple would have the decency to at least sell additional chargers with some concession. This is also not the first time that an Apple charger of mine has become faulty: on my previous Macbook Air the cable broke and I had to purchase a new one, I have also had two official lightning cables which have also broken. I know that there are many others which have experienced similar problems and it is simply not good enough!

A real drag, I must say!
