    I love It and I don't Understand...

    • Written by from Chiapa de Corzo

    So, I don't understand really all this reviews... Look, I will try to explain with examples.

    I am owner of some dedicated servers from a particular NOC (Network Operation Center). Now, many former clients complained because this provider suspended their Servers while my Account is always working perfectly.

    Talking with the CEO of this hosting company I realized that all this account were suspended because they were abusing the provider's AUP and TOS... of course if you misuse a service or a product soon or later is going to be broken!

    Same thing with Computers!

    Now, I own more than 6 Macs, and I never had troubles. While in Texas for job, I closed the connector out of my bag and with the Zip I damaged it. My bad! The MagSafe stopped to work and also the battery stopped to charge fully.

    I had to change it after to weeks because the cord was really and seriously damaged.

    After I changed the MagSafe, my "Travel" MacBook (2007) work perfectly and the Charge of the Battery last more.

    So, due to my fault I had to change the MagSafe... that lasted a lot and the new one is working perfectly! So it's true that WE make the QUALITY of it! If we treat things good they will last a lot but if we use them as TRASH, they are going to finish inside the Trash Can!

    The product is worthy all the money I spent for it and I know I am going to have care of it to preserve it.

    Works fine for a year, just bought extra one to change my laptop at work

    Not sure what people are complaining about here or how do they manage to burn power adapters so quickly. Perhaps consider a power surge protector to use with this adapter will be what is all needed. I use that in most of every power socket in my home to protect my equipment.

    MagSafe Adapter

    • Written by from Green Valley

    I don't know what people are doing to their power cords, but I've had this for a year now and have had absolutely no problems with it. I've taken it overseas, to crummy motels, to sketchy coffee shops, and of course in my hole of an apartment. I'm a graduate student and put daily abuse on both the computer and this adapter, and I have never had a problem. My cat has even chewed on it, and it still works fine. 5 stars!

    Adapter Works Great

    • Written by from Oakvlille

    I have had my adapter for more than 9 months now and I have never had an issue. These negative reviews are probably people who have not handled their accessories with great care. Do not listen to them they work fine!

    No Problems At All

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I've had this MagSafe adapter for about a year and I've not had a problem with it yet. I use the adapter every other day, and when not in use, I keep it with the cord coiled in pouch in my laptop bag. Having read some of the negative reviews here, I suspect these folks are coiling the cord around the brick on the retractable hook. When I first received this adapter, I realized coiling the cord that way would be a problem. I coil the cord around three or four fingers and then I secure it with a cheap velcro strap. The cord doesn't fray and all is well.

    New & Improved

    The new MagSafe power adapter is awesome. The design gets the cord and connector out of the way and to date, eliminates the loose connection problems. The thumbs up!

    Don't understand the bad reviews

    • Written by

    I have an old power adapter from my last laptop that has been working for over 7 years. What do people do to their adapters? It's an electronic device, you can't bang it around and expect it's not going to break. Needless to say, I've been using my new one for over 2 years now with no issues and I have one at all three places I use my laptop most, so I don't have the added weight in my laptop bag...unless I'm going on a trip. I've had no issue with any I've every purchased.

    Excellent adapter! Genius design!

    • Written by from Denver

    I am one of many victims who had to pay over $300 in repairs because one bad step ruined two computers. When I bought my macbook in 2009, I was delighted to see that apple had fixed this problem in an ingenious way. Since then, my MagSafe Power Adapter has held up strong, lasting two times (going on 3) as long as power adapters I had previously owned. Excellent buy!

    It's a power adapter!!

    • Written by from temple hills

    Have kept two of these around for a while never had a problem. Just had one die of unnatural causes (50lb Lab puppy used it as a chew toy) but the other one still works great. The wire on the new 85w unit for my new Mac Book Pro is a little stiff so I will be careful not to wrap it too tight but it should last quite a while if treated properly. Of course your mileage may vary.

    Excellent product, but not for people who abuse their stuff!

    • Written by from Richardson

    I've have two laptop Macs and one iMac with these power adapters and none have ever failed. I have a friend that is too lazy (or cheap) to get an extension cord, so he stretches his power adapter cable so tight that it keeps popping off. He thinks this is a design flaw, when instead it is EXACTLY what it supposed to do! You're not supposed to put a strain on the cord or connector. That should be readily understandable to any sane person.

    Some reviewer here said that they had to "hold my Mac at an angle or hold the connector in" that should never be the case unless he/she is doing what my friend does, which is putting tension on the cable or stress on the connector. If you have to hold the connector in, you're doing something WRONG. It's that simple. The cord should have NO tension on it, the connector should have NO stress on it. Seriously, what is wrong with people? They treat their computer like a football, or like a hammer and then whine and cry when it breaks.

    These power adapters work great and last a long time IF you take decent care of them. Use your head and treat your stuff with some respect and you won't have any more problems with broken adapters.

    Best Charger Ever!!

    • Written by from Truro

    I think this charger is the best because if someone pulls at it by accident the magnet will release and your computer will stay exactly where it is, and it seems to be a quick charge (Even though I think that's just the computer itsefl) But overall, great charger!!

    Worked really well as a replacement for the old charger that was shredded by my dog. It does not get hot like the old ones and the MagSafe design has saved my computer a few times from a hard drop to the floor!

    I absolutely love the MagSafe Power Adapter since I have tripped over my laptop charger cable before, this one just detaches from the computer without bringing the computer to the floor.
