Product Information

  • The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also 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 lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which 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 Pro with Retina display.

  • Magnet not Strong Enough

    I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T des I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T design but the magnet holding it in is way to weak. I don't know if it is because its smaller profile, but I can barely touch my laptop without the thing falling out. It is becoming extremely annoying to the point where I might need to walk around with a brand new MBP with its power cord duct taped to it! I believe the magnets are in the systems itself but please Apple come out with a revised adapter with a second set of neodymium magnets in the charging tip to counter act the problem and grab the machine tighter. I'd rather it be bulkier and work properly. I understand the point that is supposed to break away, but not by a feather landing on it! We miss Steve Jobs. I hope this isn't the type of product glitches we will have to get accustomed to now. Apple is supposed to be Apple, This isn't Apple at all.

    Why did Apple go back to the old 'T' design it ditched years ago? Why is that now regarded as better when before it was regarded Why did Apple go back to the old 'T' design it ditched years ago? Why is that now regarded as better when before it was regarded as worse? What is going on at Apple?

    I love my new Macbook Pro Retina, but I really don't like this ugly, impractical new power connector. I hope they ditch it soon and we can get (what is now) the old style 'L' connector back,

It broke less than a year after purchase, mind you I was using my laptop casually so there shouldn't have been problems with it overheating or anything. Additionally, the replacement cost is a whopping $80 dollars which wouldn't be such a big deal if the charger was actually worth the money. The magnetic tip keeps popping out at even the most subtle movements and becomes a nuisance at times. After paying over 2000 for my retina MacBook Pro I was expecting the accessories to go with it to work as smoothly as the laptop itself, but boy was I wrong. I will have to think twice before buying an Apple laptop again in the future.

My Mac recognizes it but it doesn't charge at all. So I'm not sure if it's a defect or just my bad luck but since hubby at the time thought the protection plan was silly I just had to buy a whole new charger very expensive and another thing not really loving the magnet on it doesn't stay plugged in good enough if it gets moved just a little cord falls out! Love apple though
