    No, this is only for the newer MBP. The connector is different. You need to get the original MagSafe charger (Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter (for 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro)).

  • No it will not. An older MagSafe will work with MagSafe 2 via the new adapter but it will not work the other way.

    You need an 85W MagSafe adapter, NOT a MagSafe 2

  • This charger is only for the Retina MacBook Pro. MagSafe 2 cables are only for computers that use MagSafe 2 power ports.
