    Awesome!

    • Written by from Austin

    Great charger, great design! We've had our white 13 inch MacBook since May 2006 and when the original charger stopped working about a year ago we needed to get another one. We decided to go with this new design instead of the original because it laid flat closer to the computer. So far, so good. It works well and we have zero complaints. Also, having a plug that rests closer to the MacBook is nice, especially with little kids in the home.

    Love it.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I like the magnetic ability, I like the light on the cord that tells you whether your MBP is fully charged or not.
    I don't understand everyones complaints. I've had this for a couple months and move it often - bedroom, living room, coffee shop, etc - and it's still in the exact same condition it was in when I opened the box.

    MAG ONLY

    • Written by from PORT ORCHARD

    This is a review of the magnet end only. I got no issues with the rest.
    Because the magnet leaves the computer and 90 degree turns there is more leverage applied from the cord and it pops off very well and often. I think the previous straight out plug design works better at staying attached. The new one is I must say more elegant and streamlined but less functional.

    Lucky for me I still got one.

    Perfect piece of equipment!!

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    Ive read the horrible reviews on here but I have never ever had a problem with this piece of equipment. If I had to grade its performance I would give it an A+. Although it is a bit pricey to replace, Im not too worried about it. Im sure its going to work like my Macbook Pro for a long time.

    Great Durability and Performance

    • Written by from Cornwall Bridge

    I'm very surprised by the 1 star reviews here. My son has been using the 60 W MagSafe Power Adapter for over a year with no problems and no signs of wear. He has a 13" MacBook Pro, and carries the power supply back and forth to school every day. He's not at all gentle with it, and connects and disconnects several times everyday.

    I've been commuting with a MacBook Pro using the 85 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for 3 years, and have had no problems. I own 2 of these power adapters, one at work and one at home. They've been great. One problem I did notice was a buzzing when I used my phone near my laptop when I was using the power adapter with the 2 prong fold-out plug. I was able to eliminate the buzzing by changing to the 3 prong power cord (which comes with the power adapter), instead of using the simple flip-out 2 prong plug.

    I've been using Apple laptops for over 10 years and have never had a problem with any of the power supplies, or with the wires. When you compare Apple's power supplies and wires with the competitors or aftermarket supplies, I think the Apple power supplies are clearly better made, especially the way the wires stay soft and flexible. The cheaper products have stiff wires that always take on an odd shape that gets in the way.

    Maybe not perfect but the best there is for now.

    • Written by from Cortland

    I'm a PC technician and have had my macbook for almost 4 years. 3 months ago I replaced my power adapter because I wore out the cable with years of use. It still works, but the light doesn't and you can see the metal in the wire at the block. I taped the heck out of it and it's the permanent hookup at the desk. The new one was not cheap but well worth the money spent on it. Much better than the dozens of computers that we have had to rewire or cobb up because the power adapter was broken off the motherboard or case. I will take this any day vs the alternative. Not to mention that most of my colleagues with PCs are on their 2nd or 3rd machine since I've owned this one. I've never seen a situation where Apple didn't replace a unit that was legitimately a problem, within and sometimes out of warranty.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from San Jose

    I don't agree with the any of the poor reviews and certainly can't understand why anyone having problems hasn't taken them back. I own SEVEN of these things. We are a family with 4 Macbooks - and have been for many years. I'm still using the MacSafe that came with my very first MagSafe Macbook. It's a little frayed around the edges but never fails to make a solid connection or charge correctly. This is the best power connector ever invented and is far superior to it's predecessor.

    Power Adapter

    • Written by from Red Hill

    I love my Mac.Book Had it for over a year. The magnetic power cord is wonderful. Charges great. I have this computer where ever I go. I am ready to go overseas and purchased the plug adapter. I hear the white box is already the converter so I am good to go

    PERFECT ITEM

    • Written by from Caledonia

    This is a perfect item. I really like the fact the cord now exits at a right angle rather than straight out. Extremely pleased.

    Why no problems with any of my MagSafe adapters?

    • Written by from San Anselmo

    I've used the MagSafe adapters without any problems since they were first introduced.

    Between home and office, I've bought well over over a dozen MacBooks and MacBook Pro's for myself, my family and my staff, starting with three early 1.83 GHZ MacBooks, then two 2.0 GHZ 13" MacBooks, then moving to 2.2 GHZ & 2.4 GHZ 13"MacBookPro's, three 15" MacBook Pro's, two 17" MB Pro's and two 13" MB Pro's. Not a single Apple brand MagSafe power adapter has ever failed, though we have had problems with some "bargain-priced" aftermarket clones from Asia.

    As far as my experience goes, the only Apple ones that stop working have had their magnetic connectors stepped on. Aside from that, the only issues we've had are the result of using the hard plastic MacBook covers; some of them prevent the connector from fitting securely in its recepticle.

    • Written by from Macon

    This is a great Power Adapter. It is better than the old design as said by many in the reviews. For those who are considering buying one, don't pay attention to the idiots that can't take care of their equipment. I have had mine for quite a while now with no problems. The people who complain of fraying are simply careless.

    Good product

    • Written by from Matawan

    I've read all the other reviews and each situation may be different, but as for my experience, I love the product. I've had my MacBook Pro now about nine months and the charger has worked perfectly every time. It doesn't overheat or get warm at all and I love the ease of connecting it to the machine. I would love to buy a second one for the office, but the $80 is a little steep for that luxury.

    Let's Compare...

    • Written by from South Jordan

    Alright, so it sounds like these have a tendency to stop working after awhile. Mine still works great, and I love it, but I've only had it for about a month. But if you've ever shopped for a replacement power adapter for a PC laptop, you know that they are just as expensive. And the problem with them is that, in my experience, they break EASIER! Because it's not the magnetic connection, every time someone trips over the cord, it not only brings the charger close to its demise, but also brings the connection to the motherboard closer to ITS demise. And once that happens, it's new laptop time.

    It's very difficult to produce a bullet-proof charger, because they definitely get the most abuse out of any part of the macbooks, or any laptop in general. Just realize that ALL laptop users are in the same boat, and really Apple still has higher quality. The magsafe connector is something I wish was on EVERY laptop, patents or not, because they're just THAT MUCH BETTER.

    Oh, and to the few who complain because the wall charger is bulky, just switch to the 3-prong extension, and you have yourself a classic laptop charger with the adapter in the middle of the cord. And if you still want to complain, go buy a desktop, because again, every laptop user fights that same thing.

    Sorry if this post seems a little troll-y. Didn't mean to come off that way, it just seems that many of these reviewers are a bit....ignorant?

    Never any problem with my Power Adapters

    • Written by from North Vancouver

    Just want to add my experience with the power adapter. I guess people who review the product have had problems and therefore are purchasing a new one. We have bought several just for the convenience of not having to move the power cord each time we take the powerbook to another location. In all the years we have had powerbooks - probably 5 or 6 now we have never had one fail.

    Read This!

    • Written by from Houston

    I have a 2008 Macbook and lost my charger on a trip. I was reluctant to order this new one as it is not the exact type they used to provide and after reading the previous bad reviews, I was concerned.

    The first day, the charger worked but the second day, the light failed to eluminate and the laptop was not charging. Hence, my laptop died!

    I visited the Genius Bar at the Apple Store and was amazed to find out that the laptop battery in the older Macbook's needs to be reset/cycled to work with the new power adaptors.

    Apple is also coming out with a software patch that will address this issue.

    I wonder if all the previous poor reviews are because of this issue? Hmmm....

    To fix, simply remove the battery from the laptop and press the button for 10 seconds to reset it.

    Once back in the battery slot, plug the laptop into the new charger and it works!

    A GREAT tip for anyone wondering why this charger does not work with their 2009 and earlier Macbook. It is NOT the charger but the laptop. Voila!
