Product Information

  • 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.

    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 Bought this as my old original T-shape maglock charger for my macbook stopped working.

    Have had it a total of maybe, 2-3 weeks 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.

    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 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 which 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.

    These are awful chargers, and so expensive for something that keeps breaking. You expect more when you pay so much for a laptop. U These are awful chargers, and so expensive for something that keeps breaking. You expect more when you pay so much for a laptop. Unfortunately the fake ones are no better and potentially dangerous. Hope something is done about this soon.

The rubber casing always starts to come off, and before long the charger stops working due to a short caused by the exposed wires. I have gone through far too many of these cables, and for the INSANE price of 79.99 they should be made of higher quality rubber. The same issue is present in the iphone chargers, horribly cheap rubber leads to exposed wires, leads to a useless cable. Apple should address this issue, because I have spent far too much money on these chargers, and because of Apple's predatory business practices there are no safe alternatives to their chargers for macbooks. At least with the iphones they sell a 3rd party cable in the apple store (physical store only) that is a flat cable made of superior quality rubber. I wish they would do the same for macbooks because I just want a cable that lasts.

    In case anyone is wondering: I never coil my cables - even though they have prongs on the power block specifically for that so you would think the cables could withstand that.
