Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)
Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)
The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and 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 will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users 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 and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Power adaptors do not last
Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past beca Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues. …

I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.
I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power ad I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.
I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months.
Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month!
I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC. …

New and Better than the Old MagSafe
I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feel I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feels differently built (for the better), it doesn't nearly get as hot as the old MagSafe did (incredibly this one stays very cool, even on extended periods of time, although that could be because it's new.) Lastly, the actual connector is pretty innovative, feels much sturdier and less prone to fire/breaking/separation issues. It also wraps around a better/more effective contour. All in all, for $79 compared to $99, and the benefits i've named, it's a much better buy than the previous MagSafe (still overpriced, apple) …

It's frustrating to me that, spending double the amount of money on this laptop compared to competitors, that they aren't able to It's frustrating to me that, spending double the amount of money on this laptop compared to competitors, that they aren't able to make their chargers more durable than the others also. I do believe the money was worth it, I love my MacBook. But seriously Apple? There are dinosaur laptops older than me whose original chargers are still kickin'. And for the dinky replacement to be $80?? I'm baffled. This desperately needs to be addressed, but looking at the number of upset reviews over the years, it's clearly been neglected. …

Terrible Quality of MagSafe Power Adapter
Adapter # 2 in less than 3 years just broke -- of course, 3 months after the warranty expired. As others have noted, these adapter Adapter # 2 in less than 3 years just broke -- of course, 3 months after the warranty expired. As others have noted, these adapters are of poor quality. I find it particularly concerning because my adapter typically remains at my desk when I'm charging my Mac; it's not as if I've put the adapter to any unusual use where you could understand the splitting and fraying cable. Apple, please fix this design! 80% of the reviews for this product have given 1-star -- that's a pretty resounding indication that this product is subpar and simply not up to Apple standards. …

I always been very happy with Mac products until now. This power adapter has horrible quality. I bought this adapter 11 months ago I always been very happy with Mac products until now. This power adapter has horrible quality. I bought this adapter 11 months ago and it's already falling apart. The cable where it connects onto the battery is already ripping in half and it gets extremely hot. For $80 bucks it needs to be a lot more durable. …

Grounding my macbook air
- Asked by Angela K from Dartmouth

One is grounded and the other is ungrounded as you mentioned. I find that it is very important to us One is grounded and the other is ungrounded as you mentioned. I find that it is very important to use the three prong/grounded plug when ever you can, just because it is safer. The two prong is great for when traveling since you don't need to carry an extra 3 foot cable with you. Others and I have also found that the MacBooks heat up less when using the grounded cable.
The only real difference is convenience for the consumer.
Hope this answers your question. …
