The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adaptor 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 adaptor for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adaptor (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.
Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adaptor has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.
This power adaptor 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.
Ratings & Reviews
Bought this as my old original T-shape maglock charger for my macbook stopped working.
Have had it a total of maybe, 2-3 week s and if I want to charge my laptop the cable has to be put into a very specific position.
Also the metal head that connects to your macbook gets very hot and can burn you.
I will be requesting a replacement and would hope that apple would stop using cheap materials and over charging because of their brand. …

Broken and burns
I bought this charger probably about 2 or 3 months ago to replace my old one which was the last version the white T shaped one whi ch worked fine without problem until then and was about 3 years old.
The past week or 2 it has slowly started to stop working properly going off when I move it the tinniest amount and then takes a while to get back working again, this is what happened to my old charger before it broke. Now today I felt the head of the charger and the temperature was ridiculous I physically cant hold it in my hand for longer than 4 seconds without being burned! Im worried that it may set on fire if it keeps getting worse. Im going to get in contact with apple to see if they can replace it or something for me. Iv noticed im not the only one as somebody else has posted the same thing as me. …

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

Complete design disaster
Have my Macbook pro 2 years and the power cable is ready for the bin. It is only suitable to be used one direction as blokes the e thernet socket but then can put a lot of pressure on the joint if the cable is located towards you. As a result they break and then resort to fiddling to get the cable to work. Its a common issue and then Apple are smart to charge €79 for a new one. Love my mac and have many other Apple products and this is the biggest thumbs down item. …

After my original charger for my MacBook eventually broke, I had to buy this, the updated version. My first one broke within a cou ple of days and I had to take it back for a replacement. I've had this one about a year and it's just starting to go. The metal connector into my MacBook keeps overheating, and I almost burnt myself on it the other day it was so hot. Very dangerous!!!!! It looks as if one of the wires is loose as it will only charge if the wire is in a certain position. This is probably due to the fact that my power source is at a right angle to my MacBook, not in front or behind it so the wire has had to bend to the side. My MacBook is quite old now, and I hope to replace it in the next six months/1 year. I just hope the power adapter holds out till then as I don't fancy spending £65 I don't have on a new adapter. May just look for a 3rd party one for the time being. Disappointing! …

Yes you can however, it is not recommended since your MacBook Pro would never charge fully as the in put power is too low (in some applications) where the battery would always need to supply the remaining 25W. For charging it is ok sometimes, but you should buy the 85W power adapter since your computer was made to operate with it. The 85W would also charge faster than 60W.
Hope this helps …

Yes, the computer knows how much power to draw, and using an 85W adapter on your 13inch MBPro will b e perfectly safe. …

Does anyone know if all of the three available Magsafe adapters - 85W, 60W and 45W - are the same physical size?
- Asked by Philip D from Vancouver
All three are different sizes, and obviously the higher the wattage, the larger the adapter. I freq uently swap between all three (I own 3 laptops - 11", 13" 15"). Using a 45W on the 15" results in a slower charge, but it still charges. With the higher wattage chargers, they can be used on a lower need laptop with no issue at all. The laptop just draws what it needs. …
