    mine works and does exactly as advertised

    • Written by from Lawrence

    I was a bit hesitant to use this after reading all the negative reviews, however, mine worked fine right out of the box and continues to work. Granted, the negative reviews are saying they peter out at around 5 months, but I'm well over three months in to using my first one and it works just fine. Sometimes it needs a bit of wiggling to get the light to green, but away it goes. Perhaps it should be noted that I use this charger at my desk at work, so it doesn't get jostled around at all and is only used a few hours a day, a few days a week.

    No Problems, only solves them

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    Does exactly what it's made for. I have used the adapter for three months with no problems. It does get slightly hot, but only slightly. Magnet is as strong as the Magsafe 2, but that wasn't as good as the original. It allows me to switch between two Mac Book Pros (2009 and 2014) with one power cable. Would like if they made an adapter that works from Magsafe2 to Magsafe. I would recommend.

    Great for those of us with older MagSafe adaptors

    • Written by from Studio City

    I keep one of these in my bag and one on my desk connected to an 85 Watt MagSafe adaptor. It is great that it allows me to use these old adaptors with my newer MagSafe2 computer as they will outlast several computers.

    Outstanding Utility

    • Written by from Bedford

    I have 3 of these and they all work like magic. Never had a problem. Apple didn't have to make this $10 product. They could have required us to buy new power adapters with the new size MagSafe connector. I'd say that's pretty good. Not sure why others are having problems. Everyone I know who has one raves about this little part that saves an adapter. Buy.

    Never Failed!

    • Written by from Hercules

    I've been using this since I bought my retina Macbook Pro in Nov of 2013 to power my non-thunderbolt 27" Apple monitor, and it has never failed. It has never fallen off or failed to connect to my monitor.

    Works Perfectly

    • Written by from EXTON

    The only regret I had after unboxing my new Macbook Air, was the realization that my "old" MagSafe power adapters would not work with it. I travel frequently, so rather than bundle up the MagSafe 2 cord and travel with it, I was planning to buy a new Magsafe 2 cord and keep it in my briefcase when I travel. Thank you apple for creating this handy little adapter to solve all my problems. Less than $10, and I received it from fedex less than 24 hours after I ordered it.

    Works exactly the way it should

    • Written by from Oakville

    It allows you to use older Macbook MagSafe power adapter on newer MacBooks. Simple.

    It's magnetic so if you trip on the cable it releases just like the MagSafe. Simple!

    You can NOT possibly rate this little thing below a 5 STAR - it does exactly what it says it does - nothing more nor nothing less. SIMPLE!

    Works as advertised, much cheeper than a new adapter

    • Written by from Melrose

    I'm shocked by all of the negative reviews. I have 1 at my office desk and several throughout my house. I have never had an issue - it always charges and stays connected. Kudos to Apple for offering this; they could have easily changed the converters and forced everyone to retire the old ones. This saved me a lot of $$.

    has been rock solid

    • Written by from San Diego

    I've had one running in my office for 6 months without any issue at all. I've read the reviews of these stopping to charge all of a sudden, but I have never had that experience. I bought 2--one for my office and one for home. The one in my office stays plugged into a power cable that says there so it is never disconnected from the magsafe magnet; don't know if that matters.

    My second one (at home) lasted 3-4 months. This one went in my backpack and was in and out. But I lost it. That's my fault; I know they are small and easy to los. I can't blame Apple for that one. I'll probably replace it because it's so convenient (I have several power cords around the house so I can plug in anywhere, and I don't want to start buying a bunch of magsafe 2 cords.

    All in all, they did what they were intended to do reliably for me.

    It works.

    • Written by from Rockwood

    I have read a mixed bag of reviews here but I can say that on a 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina the adapter in perfect and is not subject to falling out or not working if moved in anyway. It has a solid hold and resists being pulled out as well as the MagSafe 2 connection. No doubt others are having some issues but I am happy that for my set up the adaptor works great.

    Exactly what I expected.

    • Written by from Manchester

    It's sturdy, grips tightly (I can't remove it from my MagSafe cable without using two hands, so if I yank the cable from the MacBook the adapter stays safely on).

    I can't fault it.

    Mine works fine.

    • Written by from los angeles

    I just upgraded my MacBook Pro and noticed they changed the power connection. Since I had 2 MagSafe cords already I thought I'd roll the dice.
    There are quite a few negative reviews but I gotta say mine works perfectly. Maybe they fixed the problem.

    Great little thing!!!

    • Written by from Marsfield

    So I had a spare charger from my old white-Macbook (mid-2007) days and I had paid about $99 for a genuine second MagSafe 60W charger then, years passed... and I now am using MacBook Air and I had a need for spare charger to juice-up my MBA while at home-office, buying another 45W charger did not make a whole lot of sense. Having read that I can use my old charger (no 60W doesn't charge any faster to 45W) I bought this little converter and it has done the magic for me. I got the product delivered in under 27 hours at door step and its been great.

    Highly recommended!!!

    Works as Expected

    • Written by from Louisville

    I still have the 85-Watt MagSafe power supply from the very first MacBook Pro (early 2006). This adapter allows me to use that power supply with my new MacBook Pro (late 2013). I does exactly what it says with no problems.

    Life in the old adapter :)

    • Written by from London

    Been using for a couple of days and have to say it works well for me .

    Fits extremely well and strongly to the old magsafe and so pops off the laptop easily when any pressure is applied - as is the point of the magsafe connectors.

    Some other reviewer seem to be commenting on theirs getting very hot , i'm not getting that - mine is ambient temperature after several hours use. It would be interesting to see if those reviewers are using an official charger or a 3rd party one. I've owned 3rd party chargers in the past that have got substantially hotter then the officials ones

    Other are complaining that their laptops are slow to charge thru it - not noticing that at all.

    Then their are reviewers complaining they have lost theirs because its too small. I'm sure thats annoying for them, and I will be annoyed if I lose mine at some stage but small things are easy to lose. Its hardly a product flaw.

    if you have an old charger around that can be used with this rather than spending a small fortune on an official apple power brick then its a no brainer in my opinion.

    In fact, I'm pleasantly surprised apple makes this rather than going for the bigger sale of a new power adapter.

    Product works great with appropriate expectations

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I am not sure what the negative reviews of this are for. It is a converter and it works great. It has a strong enough magnet to primarily remain with the cord. The light on the cord works fine when charging. That said it is a separate unit and if you expect it to be permanently attached it is not....so treat it with some care. If you understand that, it is a great alternative to buying a new power cord.
