When I want to charge the older MacBook I have to take the converter off, and it is so small I keep misplacing it.

    This converter should have a clip attached so that I can clip it to the power adapter cable when not in use.

The magnet is strong, so you can leave it attached to your power adapter without fear of losing it. It would be nice if you could use it both ways, but as it is you can only use it to convert a Magsafe power adapter for use with a Magsafe 2 laptop, but what it does do it does well.

Would expect something this simple to work better.

The light stays green indicating a full charge,when it's not, and it won't charge. I can only assume the little pins aren't making contact. I've tried to clean it but it's made no difference.

    Superb. Does exactly what it needs to. I'm using it on a power cable from a mid-2012 MBP to a 2014 rMBP. No issues with overheatin Superb. Does exactly what it needs to. I'm using it on a power cable from a mid-2012 MBP to a 2014 rMBP. No issues with overheating or slow charging as reported in other posts.

    The magnet gives a strong, reassuring fit without losing its purpose. The only reason I'm not giving 5-star is that I feel Apple could have engineering a 'clip' so you can attach it to the cable as not to misplace it when not in use. I'm quite handy so I think I can cobble one together myself.

    All-in-all if you have a spare older power cord and a newer Macbook it's a no brainer.
