    Don't Breathe...

    • Written by from Gilbert

    The charger itself does what it suppose to do... as long as you can keep it from falling off. With the old MagSafe I could plug in my MBP move around as much as I wanted no problem. This one, if you breathe on it, it falls out. Very, very annoying. Apple really needs to use a stronger magnet.

    Does anyone from Apple read these reviews?

    • Written by from North Canton

    I am a very careful user of equpment and my adapter frayed just about a half an inch from the magnetic connector. A little over one year of use--Very poor quality!!

    Broke After 2 Months, Terrible

    • Written by from Rio Rancho

    In the past, I've had a MagSafe 1 charger that survived my cats chewing on it, switching ports, etc. because I didn't know how to handle it. Now, I have a MagSafe 2 charger for my MacBook Air 11-inch circa late 2013, and I put it away after using it immediately so no cats bite it and nothing hurts it. I'm extremely careful and use it as lightly as possible yet when I bought a new one (I've already gone through 3 of these chargers since December of 2013!) it broke after 2 months of said light use. This is a terrible product and had I known how much money I would spend on chargers for my Macbook Air, I wouldn't have bought it.

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Leiden

    This adapter is terrible! Got broken in two parts even though I was really really careful with it. Not to mention that it would fall out of the laptop every 15 seconds. Terrible! I so much regret buying a mac book.

    Magnet came off and gut stuck in the socket

    • Written by from Paddington

    I had to pry the magnetic strip off the socket of the computer with a scalpel, needless to say that the operation was not only dangerous but quite disappointing. How can this charger fall apart after only 2 years!? And furthermore how can it cost $100?!

    cable shield broke near the plug

    • Written by from Saint-Hubert

    It is not my first power adapter and they all broke at the same place near the connector. I think it may be due to the heat close to the plug. that could temper the shield material and it become weaker. Usually it takes just a bit more than a year to see that it will break soon. Apple SHOULD really so something about this.

    Apple needs to eliminate the SHAMEFUL MagSafe 2

    • Written by from Hanover

    Whoever came up with this design should be fired immediately. The magnet is weak. It WILL NOT stay connected to the machine given the slightest agitation. This defeats the purpose of the MagSafe design: to remain firmly connected to the machine as the user requires, and self-disconnect only if a potentially damaging pull is applied to the cord. The MS2 connector WILL NOT remain connected. Furthermore, it is a 'T' connector which also defeats the purpose of a non-obtrusive power connector. This new connector is a bloody clumsy eyesore! Frankly, the MagSafe 2 is a frustrating piece of garbage. Apple should be ashamed of itself for allowing this substandard design. Apple should return to the superior 'L' connector design and incorporate a stronger magnet. SHAME!!

    Test before produce...?

    • Written by from Göteborg

    The Magsafe 2 connection is terrible. Im a big fan of Magsafe love apple for their inovation but the magsafe 2 is not fun on my retina 13". It falls off al the time...its not due to weak magnet (try to pull it straight out) its to thin so it bends easier and then fall of... I know apple redesigned it just to be thinner but I'm pretty sure it is possible to do it as good as before and still even thinner... just bad design...terrible when you have the macbook in bed the charger cable snap out al the time... redesign so it not fall of without to change layout again.... Im pretty sure apple can do that...we don't want another adapter again...just better function

    The cable seems to be better nowdays after 1.5 years it hasn't break... thanks for that at least...

    Extremely Low Quality

    • Written by from New Delhi

    The cable's skin broke under one year of just regular usage. The skin broke from both sides - The connector pin and the charger that plugs into the wall. I can't believe the cable to be of such low quality.

    Its Time For Change, Apple

    • Written by from san Antonio

    What i think is ridiculous about Apple, is that they create these beautiful pieces of machinery like the MacBooks and keep updating them, but don't bother to fix the most important accessory for it. How do you, as one the biggest companies, expected to be fully respect and trusted if you can't put even 10% of the work you put into the computers into the charger for the computers.

    Mine has exposed wire and sparks sometimes, so disappointed. How about make a charger just as sleek and compact as the computers, also without the inflated prices.

    Shanty adapter

    • Written by from Overland park

    I understand that the point of the magnetic charger is supposed to be for easier removal, but I would much rather have a charger that actually stays put when I move around with my computer. I also really dislike how thin the wire covering is for the adapter; the casing for the wires ripped so easily (along with the wires), and now I have to buy an $80 replacement for a charger that will most likely rip again in the next few months. Please find a way to make a more durable power adapter. If you are going to charge us $80 for a replacement, at least make one that is worth the $80.

    Poor build quality

    • Written by from London

    Echoing what others have said in their reviews of this product, I have to say that I am sorely disappointed with the quality of the cable covering, which has now frayed to a point where the cable no longer works and must be replaced. Clearly, this is a fairly common problem as there are products sold online specifically to prevent it; I wish I had discovered them sooner, as this is an expensive cable to replace based on a design that any amount of testing could have identified as unsuitable for long-term use. Very bad form on Apple's part to have released such a shoddy product.

    This thing can't even stay plugged in while laying in my bed with a comforter underneath it. Did they do any real world testing? Jesus I could have designed a better plug.

    What an awful design Now on number 3 in <4years.

    • Written by from Newhaven

    The cause of replacement number 3 is the useless covering on the magsafe cable end. The slightest pinch in this, usually caused by being laid under the world's lightest computer, and it crumbles. While it's crumbling at one point the sheathing slides up and down, breaking at subsequent points along its length. Which is bad - but it gets worse. You cannot detach the cheap cable from the expensive box of electronics. Seriously guys, 4 years and you've not addressed this yet. Bad design flaw! Get it? Making the product universal with only 1 cable change for the global market is a good idea. Making us throw away a working and expensive box because you can't get a cable covering right is a bad idea. Let me demonstrate:

    Let's ask a 5 year old how we could improve that, shall we? How about you makek the cable that disintegrates detachable from the big expensive box of equipment so my replacement cost each year is smaller?

    Or do Apple genuinely want to penalise their customers by failing to make the product properly in the first place and then compounding that by charging us unnecessarily for a part that is still working but that we cannot get off the end of the cable to allow us to replace the cable that needs changing? Seriously? Yes, it would still be a pain, but a pain that wouldn't bankrupt me.

    2nd charger in two years and I take extra care of my devices. Also maybe create something sturdy at the 'neck' of the charger so it doesnt fray after, I dont know, 2months of use.

    What a joke

    • Written by from Louisville

    Absolutely terrible design. The chord is very thin and weak. Mine broke so fast and I take really good care of my things. I had to buy another one and hope that it will last longer than half a year. Things like this make me want to switch to PCs. PATHETIC
