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.

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. …

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 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. …

Terrible - Pull your finger out Apple and redesign the charger!
Apple, seriously, what is wrong with you - Someone, please, design a mag safe cable that isn't complete pants.
I don't care if Apple, seriously, what is wrong with you - Someone, please, design a mag safe cable that isn't complete pants.
I don't care if the cable looks ugly and doesn't match your design philosophy, I just want a power cable for my Macbook Air that works and doesn't perpetually split and fray.
Macbook Air is brilliant, surely it can't be that difficult to make a decent power cable as the current one is complete garbage - it needs some sort of stress relief portion next to the magnetic connector. I'm on the third power supply now and at £65 a shot, I'm getting fed up with having to buy new ones.
I've also got a 5 year old Toshiba Satellite Pro worth £350 and the charger's still going strong - Sort it out Apple for god sake, by now you should really be paying attention to all the 1 star reviews and doing something about it. …

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. …
