    Lol Apple chargers are a joke!

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I have really tried sooo hard to make this charger last, as its the second one Ive had to buy. Even with all my carefulness, the charger is still broken. Let me not even mention my iPhones chargers since Ive been through 4 of them already. Apple, for a company who claims to be innovative, you sure STRUGGLE at making "innovative" chargers.

    Shoddy design

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I've had to replace this product THREE times in the four years that I've owned my MacBook. This is ridiculous, and really adding up at $80 a pop. Apple needs to design a higher quality product. I'd give it 0 stars if I could.

    Still Charging

    • Written by from Steubenville

    I have had the same power adapter for my Macbook for four years, and have never had a problem. My Macbook has been to China, Guatemala, and a Semester at Sea voyage without a single issue.

    Not durable at all!

    • Written by from Woking

    As if the laptop battery wasn't bad enough, the charger doesn't seem to hold together no matter how much you take care of it! The wire near the block comes off, leaving the insulating wire beneath exposed, until it becomes temperamental, and finally doesn't work!

    Now I have to buy another for god knows how much money, until that one breaks in a years time.

    Pathetic Charger

    • Written by from HOLDEN

    The only thing good about this charger is the way it looks and the fact that the magnet always sticks. Other than that, the thing is completely USELESS. I am currently on my third charger and I have only had my MacBook Pro for two years. I treated all of them with care, since I know how unnecessarily expensive they are, but that didn't even seem to help. I find this whole fiasco completely inexcusable and wish Apple would step up their game. I am currently in college and do not have the funds to just go out to an Apple Store and buy a new charger. This is a serious problem that Apple needs to fix ASAP!

    Am I really paying $80 for this?

    • Written by from Gastonia

    I can not believe that, after reading all the other negative reviews, I am paying $80 for a new charger. But what other choice do I have? Apple, I want to support you, but this seems unfair.

    Very overpriced for the quality

    • Written by from Nanaimo

    I have had my Mac Book for approximately 3 years, the laptop itself is very slow and has a very short battery life, but it's the power adapter that really make me angry, my power adapter has broken and I was thinking it would be no big deal that I would just purchase another one, but then I went to buy one and found that they are about 100$ at future shop, I honestly don't understand this, I have always liked mac, but after this I can't even use my computer, so I have to spend 100$ on top of what my computer was purchased for, I for one don't find that fair at all, the charger shouldn't even have broken in the first place, and for the record there is no point in making a magnetic attachment if it doesn't work! The charger shouldn't break the magnetic piece should come out, that is saying something if the charger brakes instead of detaching, I don't plan on purchasing a 100$ plug for an old mac that probably is only worth double the price of the plug. NOT PLEASED APPLE.

    College kids need more durability

    • Written by from South Bend

    1st charger lasted about 4 months when I first bought the MacPro. The second one lasted well, about 3 years. But, now I am on the third... and it barely lasted 3 months. It seems as the years go buy the quality deteriorates. A big hunk of your buyers are college students. And we are going to have the charger any and everywhere. That's life, Apple. And... as with most college kids, including myself. I'm sorry, but I am leaving you for eBay.

    Poor Charger Quality

    • Written by from Oceanside

    The wire near the magnetic connector has manage to fall apart. The wire is now exposed. The price is much for not lasting the lifetime of the MacBook. For the price of the product you would expect a non faulty product.

    Worst Charger Of All Time

    • Written by from Ham Lake

    I take good care of my electronics, chargers included, and this is now the third time I have had to replace this particular product. I have a MacBook Pro from 2011 - with my previous computer, a MacBook I purchased in 2008, one charger lasted me almost three years. On top of that, it costs $80? Seriously? For an obviously faulty product, if the rating it gets from other Apple users is any indicator of its quality, or lack thereof. Please consider either modifying this design, or reducing its absurd price.

    Sincerely,

    A Formerly Unwavering Apple Consumer

    Shame on you, Apple.

    • Written by from Texcoco

    It is just sad that a company like Apple creates such cheap and bad products. I've always supported with pride Apple's overpriced products because of its quality and durability, but the fact of having to buy 2 new chargers in less than a year leaves me completely dissapointed. I'm afraid I will have to start to disapprove Apple's name with all my acquaintances and move on to another company for all my family's gadgets.

    really bad design REALLY BAD APPLE, Hello??????????????

    • Written by from Poway

    Two MB Pro 13's - Two broken MagSafe Power Adapter wires...both of them right where the wire meets the connector...Brought the first one to Apple and they said there was no recall on this type. So I threw it away. I'm sure I should have saved it...Then the MagSafe Power Adapter for my wife's MB did the exact same thing, the wire covering split so I put some shrink wrap on it...helped for a little while until... last night, it started sparking where the wire goes into the white box (wire covering is split there too) and could have started a fire so my daughter yelled to me and I unplugged it. Dead. Off to the Apple Store for them to tell me sorry, and I guess I'll have to spend another $80...

    Bad Quality

    • Written by from Hamilton

    Your laptop only works if it has power. Maybe there should be more emphasis on the quality of the power supply. I have had more problems than I want to say. I replace this product about once a year.

    uh-oh

    • Written by from Smithfield

    Now I'm depressed. My power adaptor cord just split, exposing wires, and won't work anymore, so I went online and ordered another despite all the horrible reviews. But what are the options? I replaced my old MacBook last year and the adaptor that came with it cracked in two places and started sparking after a few months. I thought it was a fluke. So I dug up my old adaptor and it worked just fine, even though it's now 6, 7 years old. I don't mind it finally cracking open, since I got good use out of it. But I don't want to have to keep replacing the darned thing every few months like so many people here! The older adaptor was sturdier and easy to coil. The new adaptor is flimsier and flops like a fish when you try to coil it. I already know it won't last long. Apple, mistakes happen. Your customers will forgive you. But ONLY if you CORRECT the PROBLEM.

    On my third adapter in one year

    This adapter is terrible, I am on my third one this year. At $80, this is getting ridiculous. Will be my last Mac laptop.

    Not sure what everyone's talking about..

    • Written by from Whitman

    I've had my charger for my mac pro 2010 since I bought it in the fall of 2010 and it's worked fine all along. It's a matter of transporting the charger using the horns to wrap the cord around the adapter and treating it with care, as if it's an extension of the laptop itself at all times. The only reason why i'm here is I believe it's run it's course and I'm in the market for replacement 3 years after I got it.

    It's okay

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I've had this product for over two years. It's the same one that came in my macbook pro box. Just be sure to take good care of it and don't have it plugged into an outlet for too long because you'll just be draining the power on the battery. The whole product is very fragile and I'll admit that in the two years I've owned this, I've gotten wears and tears but nothing electrical tape can't fix. I only wish this wasn't so expensive because I'll need to buy a new one soon. $80 is a bit hefty..

    Power cord for my Mac Air

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    I love my mac air! I dislike the power cord! I am about to buy another power cord going on my THIRD?! I know its not me now by all these comments but also after I replaced it the first time i knew it not me because I didn't coil it, it stays in one place and it still ripped and exposed the wires.

    Cheap

    • Written by from Boston

    Like everyone else, my laptop is fine, just about to purchase my third charger. The first one, the wires became exposed and then stopped working this second one just stopped working this morning for no apparent reason. At $80 the chargers need to be better lasting. I've only had my MAC for 18 months. Right now I'm trying really hard to remember why I made the switch because none of my PC's chargers ever broke, and lasted me at least 4 YEARS each.
