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) …

Split, frayed, and twisted
My charger conked out last night for the last time. I say the last time because I have had continual problems with it. I had to ad My charger conked out last night for the last time. I say the last time because I have had continual problems with it. I had to add the extension cord to it about a year ago because the plug in broke. That worked until now when last night the part for the cord attached to the block totally split and frayed and turned the cord surrounding brown. I didn't even know it happened until it suddenly didn't work and I had an unhappy surprise awaiting me. That's how quickly it happened. I don't know if it was because of twist buildup or it got caught on some thing or something else. I called today and they said it was out of warranty so I would simply have to buy an expensive new one. …

Can i use this A1344 60W Magsafe Power Adapter for MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009)

2009 model originally used power adapter with model number A1184(60W), so electrically, this new A13 2009 model originally used power adapter with model number A1184(60W), so electrically, this new A1344 should work. Here is the catch, if you update your mac in the following year, current 15 inch model requires charger with 85W power, so you will end up with a unusable A1344. On the other hand, 85W charger can be safely used with both old and new 15 inch model(old one will only drain 60W from it) So it will be a good back up even if you update the machine. The only down side is its slightly heavier weight and larger size. …
