    Excellent Product!

    • Written by from Durham

    I really love the design of the MagSafe Power Adapter, and they have never failed me. The power adapter has no issues so far as I can see, only one being that it could be longer. Overall, the adapter is a great product, and I have never had a problem with it. *Note: I am a Mac user of over 5 years, and I have only had to replace the adapter once, when my pet rabbit chewed the wire. I have never had to replace the second one.

    works fine

    So I have had my charger for about 1 and a half years. It is a little scuffed up, but it works fine. If people would take care of their things they might not break as easily.

    Works like it should

    • Written by from markham

    The power adapter has worked fine for me, I've had the power adapter for 3 years and I'm always carrying it around. I've never felt that i need to replace it because its built pretty well.

    perfect

    • Written by from brigg

    i bought my mac in America so i had to shorten my charging cable because of the plug so i was very sceptical of buying a new one with all the bad reviews and the fact i couldn't buy that bit separate so i bit the bullet and i cant really can't see why the product has so many bad reviews its been perfect so far.. just double check that you are buying the right one for your mac make sure its the same as the one that came with the box if your not sure just go in store and ask or email apple with all the details of your mac and I'm sure they will be able to point you in the right direction :)

    Still Charging

    I have had the same power adapter for my Macbook for four years, and have never had a problem. My Macbook has been to China, Guatemala, and a Semester at Sea voyage without a single issue.

    Not sure what everyone's talking about..

    • Written by from Whitman

    I've had my charger for my mac pro 2010 since I bought it in the fall of 2010 and it's worked fine all along. It's a matter of transporting the charger using the horns to wrap the cord around the adapter and treating it with care, as if it's an extension of the laptop itself at all times. The only reason why i'm here is I believe it's run it's course and I'm in the market for replacement 3 years after I got it.

    The planet is fine, the people are f*ed

    • Written by from Vilnius

    This product is fine - it's sturdy for it's size and weight and efficient for charging time. For all the people complaining about it breaking near the tip of the charger - who's fault do you think it is?

    Do YOU:
    *even use the clip-on on the wire to make a straight connection?
    *you carefully wind the wire around the "horns" when carrying it?
    *you ever pick up the whole charger by the small cord?

    If you do, then it's your fault. Get huge chargers with mega layers of protection - go buy a DELL, that will last you for ever...

    No problems

    • Written by from Missoula

    Three months on works perfectly. My old one lasted five years, and I see no reason this one won't. The only caveat is that, as a minor electronics geek, I have learned to care for cables that I can't afford to have break. All flexible cables have weak spots where they enter and exit other parts and components. I abandoned the fold-out hooks on my old adapter and this one too because of the angle where the cord exits the brick. Pulling the cord at ninety degrees to wrap it will make it fail sooner. I also never pull on the cord to release the MagSafe. Take simple precautions and this will last years.

    DO NOT MIX AND MATCH

    • Written by from Lafayette

    So first of all this is a battery charger we're reviewing, it should not have this many bad reviews it either works or it doesn't the rest of it is how well you take care of your things.

    One thing Apple won't tell you though is some parts are just not compatible with other parts just because Apple likes to upgrade things and end up overlooking what is not being mentioned. Chargers especially. If you have a MACBOOK and are using the MACBOOK PRO charger, this will drain the MACBOOK'S battery. If you are charging a MACBOOK PRO with a MACBOOK charger this will kill the charger. DO NOT MIX AND MATCH!

    These chargers are made specifically for that computer model, so next time you purchase a charger or battery make sure you look up the model number not just the style of your computer.

    Never had a problem

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    I have owned two MacBooks both with the MagSafe Power Adapters and have never had a problem in over 6 years of constant use. I like the design and appreciate that when I am occasionally clumsy and trip over the cord that it just pops out and doesn't send my laptop to the floor.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I have had my aluminum Macbook since the late 2008 when it first came out. My original charger lasted me up until last week when it finally died after 5 years!I never had a problem with that charger and took really god care of it. I bought a new charger since my old one finally gave up on me due to the wear and tear around the "T" shaped area which connected to the computer. The new one has connected well and has been doing its job. People need to understand that Apple is a company meant for people of high class, aka for rich people. So if you're someone who has an issue buying a charger at $80, then maybe you should consider not purchasing an Apple product.

    Magsafe "L"

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    Preferred design by far -- the most robust and sleek of the Magsafe power adaptors. Unhappy that new MacBooks have reverted to a "T" connector

    Amazing power supply!

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    I really cannot for the life of me figure out why there are so many negative complaints about this power supply. I have owned Windows based laptops until buying a Macbook Pro and those all had clumsy, cheaply made power supplies with clunky connectors. I love the Apple MacSafe and it's forward thinking design. It is well crafted and expertly made. I can see it lasting many years. What I think is that people today do not take care of their gear and expect everything to withstand being thrown around, dropped and stepped on. Any electrical item will fail given that treatment. Apple makes the best, period!

    No problems here

    • Written by from Wetumpka

    I came on here wanting to buy a second one (to keep at work) and saw all the negative reviews. I switched from PC (before that was a Mac user until 2001), and my PC laptop power supply was much worse. I have lots of Apple devices and after two years my iPad power supply did fray, but I did mistreat it. It still works though.

    I think a power supply is not something you review if it works, you only come into complain about whatever horrible thing you did to it.

    Absolutely fine - don't know what all the other reviews are talking about!

    • Written by from LONDON

    As far as I can tell, this is exactly the same power adapter as the one you receive in the box when you buy a MacBook Pro. I asked at the store for them to compare them for me and they confirmed that they are the same.

    I'm not sure why all of the negative reviews, I can only imagine that the reviewers bought the chargers for their laptops with the wrong wattage.

    The adapter comes with a year guarantee also.

    I'll report back in a couple of months with an updated review.

    Marvellous

    • Written by from SALISBURY

    After my first charger got snagged between some moving furniture and broken after five years of faultless use I had two third party replacements fail in six months before biting the bullet and forking out for an apple replacement which is still going strong after a year.

    I would not hesitate to recommend this charger over the third party knockoffs available elsewhere at half the price or less.
