    Never had a problem

    • Written by from Milwaukee

    I have owned two MacBooks both with the MagSafe Power Adapters and have never had a problem in over 6 years of constant use. I like the design and appreciate that when I am occasionally clumsy and trip over the cord that it just pops out and doesn't send my laptop to the floor.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I have had my aluminum Macbook since the late 2008 when it first came out. My original charger lasted me up until last week when it finally died after 5 years!I never had a problem with that charger and took really god care of it. I bought a new charger since my old one finally gave up on me due to the wear and tear around the "T" shaped area which connected to the computer. The new one has connected well and has been doing its job. People need to understand that Apple is a company meant for people of high class, aka for rich people. So if you're someone who has an issue buying a charger at $80, then maybe you should consider not purchasing an Apple product.

    Magsafe "L"

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    Preferred design by far -- the most robust and sleek of the Magsafe power adaptors. Unhappy that new MacBooks have reverted to a "T" connector

    Amazing power supply!

    • Written by from Bakersfield

    I really cannot for the life of me figure out why there are so many negative complaints about this power supply. I have owned Windows based laptops until buying a Macbook Pro and those all had clumsy, cheaply made power supplies with clunky connectors. I love the Apple MacSafe and it's forward thinking design. It is well crafted and expertly made. I can see it lasting many years. What I think is that people today do not take care of their gear and expect everything to withstand being thrown around, dropped and stepped on. Any electrical item will fail given that treatment. Apple makes the best, period!

    No problems here

    • Written by from Wetumpka

    I came on here wanting to buy a second one (to keep at work) and saw all the negative reviews. I switched from PC (before that was a Mac user until 2001), and my PC laptop power supply was much worse. I have lots of Apple devices and after two years my iPad power supply did fray, but I did mistreat it. It still works though.

    I think a power supply is not something you review if it works, you only come into complain about whatever horrible thing you did to it.

    Apple will REPLACE that!

    • Written by from Kittanning

    I was going to purchase a replacement for my frayed power cord, but the Apple Store sales person said that it was a covered item, and they replaced it for me for free. While I'm not happy that it frayed, the service is unparalleled! LOVE THEM!

    Lasts and works great

    • Written by from Keller

    Still have the original that came with my 2010 MB Pro. It has survived countless times tripping on the cable and being yanked and being stomped and everything my 2-year old can throw at it. Whatever these others are experiencing is probably related to the electrical in their abode or abuse.

    Wonderful

    • Written by from albany

    Love Apple. After 3 years of use and abuse my charger gave out. I was going to order a replacement on line and decided that I would go to the apple store just in case it was my computer. The guy checked it out and said it was the charger.
    He went and got a new one, tested it out to make sure that it worked.
    I asked him how much and he said "no worries, its on us".
    I have to say I felt a bit guilty, until I told a friend and they said this is standard practice with them.
    I have read a lot of negative reviews, but all I have ever had from Apple is the best of the best!

    Lasted six years

    • Written by from Springfield

    I don't know what everyone else is doing with their power adapters that has them complaining about them. I have had my MacBook since 2007 and am just now replacing my power adapter for the first time. It's worked great for me. I use mine multiple times daily, plug it in, travel with it, roll it up and unroll it. Now it's having connection issues where it plugs into the body of the MacBook.

    Working nicely for a year

    • Written by from Medellín

    I bought my MacBook Pro 13'' exactly a year ago and reading the bad reviews of this MagSafe I was concerned it was going to fail soon. Well, by using my laptop for 3-4 hours everyday since I bought it, I haven't had any issues with the MagSafe, the battery or any other part of my computer. Many say Apple products are overpriced, but for my own experience I have no reasons to hate them and many to love them. It's a delight to use my MBP and everything works as it I bought it yesterday. Hope things keep working like they are. I don't know if my MagSafe is going to stop working tomorrow, but as for today I can only rate it 5 stars with a year of use.

    Amazing Long Lasting Adapter!!

    • Written by from Charleston

    What? WHAT? What is all this nonsense about these adapters breaking all the time? You people

Honestly I think people are just spamming this page with fake bad reviews, these things are very well made! Much better than any regular PC charger. Great long lasting Adapter!

    Great adapter even with its flaws

    • Written by from Leander

    This adapter is much improved over what I have used in the past on PC's, and is even an improvement over the old Apple connectors. With the newer "L" adapter (the only one you can buy now) make sure you have Snow Leopard or higher though. My wife's MacBook Pro from 2007 had crazy issues trying to get this to work until I updated her to 10.6.8 and now that she's on 10.7 we never have problems; I assume the charging issue is driver related. As for the cable fraying, that happens with all cables if you coil them up frequently; Be gentle and your mileage will probably be much better.

    Excellent product if you're responsible

    • Written by from Cedar Park

    These cables are great, with an excellent design. Some of the reviews state they break within 6-8 months, but my refresh has been more like 1 every 3 years. A lot can be said for being careful, and keep in mind these cables are covered UNDER WARRANTY and UNDER APPLECARE, so if you're complaining about having to buy one, the first one either paid itself off or its your own fault.
    The new "L" shape design is much improved over the "T" shape used previously and I love the safety benefit of the Magsafe plug itself. Take good care of it and you'll be fine.

    I have 2 of these, my brother has 2 and my dad has 1 and in all of the 4 years we have owned our laptops none of them have broken. You guys are mistreating your appliances obviously.

    Awesome Product! Lasts forever!

    • Written by from North Bay

    Not sure what people do with their power cords, but I have had mine for 4 years before this newer version without a single problem. This new power cord is ever better and I haven't had a single issue within the past year or so, nor has anyone else in my family had an issue with their new power cords.
    Apple is always improving their products and this is proof of that. So I wouldn't say that you should go throw this off a cliff and expect it to be intact, but otherwise it WILL stand the test of time, not a couple months - unlike many reviewers have said on this page.

    Lasts indefinitely, performs as specified

    • Written by from San Pedro

    I have owned two MacBooks for four and five years respectively. One power adapter recently failed, fraying near the Magsafe connector, and I just purchased a replacement. That adapter was used by a family member who insisted on treating it harshly. Mine continues to provided perfect service.

    The same is true of the two MacBooks I purchased for my company, also four plus years old. These are shared, used by various people for travel. The adapters remain intact, and continue to provide good service.

    The MagSafe feature has prevented major damage to these MacBooks on more than one occasion, which makes the $80 price worthwhile. My experience is that, with reasonable care, these adapters last indefinitely.

    Great idea!

    • Written by from New Egypt

    Love the magnet connection! Easy to pop on and off. I have had it for 1 1/2 years and no issues or need to replace (luckily it seems from others). My daughter has had her Macbook for a year and her cord has lasted too. So I'm not sure if there was a bad batch of orders or luck, but I'm completely happy!
