Product Information

  • The 45-Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook Air 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.

    Redesigned specifically for MacBook Air, the adapter is the perfect travelling companion. It 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 only with MacBook Air with MagSafe Power Port.

    Unsurprisingly, the 45W version is just as reliable as the others. Flimsy would be a generous adjective for this charger. It's act Unsurprisingly, the 45W version is just as reliable as the others. Flimsy would be a generous adjective for this charger. It's actually quite dangerous how easily this breaks and had I been a bit less careless, I could've had a nasty shock. I will not be giving Apple the satisfaction of getting an extortionate replacement from them when there are far cheaper alternatives.

    After *just* over a year (of course) the charger no longer works. How can the extortionate cost of a new one be justified? Shame o After *just* over a year (of course) the charger no longer works. How can the extortionate cost of a new one be justified? Shame on you, Apple

  • Failed after 18 months - no strain relief, design flaw

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Like many other people, I found this charger failed due to the thin cable failing near the charger unit, with the insulation break Like many other people, I found this charger failed due to the thin cable failing near the charger unit, with the insulation breaking open to reveal wires inside - dangerous as well as stopping the charger working.

    The problem is that (unlike PC laptop chargers), Apple doesn't include a stronger 'strain relief' plastic covering that helps avoid this fragile cable from failing.

    Since this is a design flaw, you have a good case to argue for a free replacement while under AppleCare.

    Apple make great laptops, it's a surprise they still haven't figured out how to make reliable chargers.

  • Utter Rubbish, Cable Breaks and Falls off Easily

    What terrible design. Not only does the adaptor fall off all the time, so you come back to what you think should be a fully charge What terrible design. Not only does the adaptor fall off all the time, so you come back to what you think should be a fully charged laptop to find it wasn't plugged in, but now I'm on my 3rd adaptor because the cable breaks too easily. Finally, if you use the long UK extension cord the plug is really hard to pull out because it's too slim, and there's nothing to pull on. Should be used as a tutorial in how not to design something.
