    MagSafe Feature is Wonderful

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've had this power adapter for years now and never had a problem. It seems very well-made. And the MagSafe feature is just amazing. There's been a few times when I've tripped over the cord and this feature probably saved my MacBook -- that alone is well worth the price.

    Not bad :)

    • Written by from Fort Myers

    I like it. I had an issue with my old one that was causing the computer to crash completely almost eveytime I plugged it in. After hours of waiting at the mac store for help we finally figured out it was the charger that had something wrong with it, not the computer. I'm still on the same computer, but different charger. So far so good. It seems to be working fine now. I however, do not like how small the charger part is, I think thats part of what the problem was. It seems they could break easily, although with my new one I have not had an issue, so as long as you are careful with it it should be fine. As with anything, mac is always good with their products and replacements. They replaced my charger absolutely free after I had all the issues.

    Awesome

    I have mine for 3 years now and works fine so far. It is small, light and the magnet conector is great. I dont like to take care of these kind of things and always let it down on the floor, then it is hard to be broken. Awesome.

    Great innovative design and very portable

    • Written by from Shoreline

    I enjoy Apple's chargers. Mine died last night after two years of use. Because I had apple care, I called up tech support and they are sending out a new cord set to arrive the next business day. This is regardless of the fact that I bought the computer in the US and now live in Spain. The local support spoke great English.
    Apple's power adapter is smaller than any other brands I have seen and because it can plug into the wall directly at the adapter, it stays a lot cooler than any adapter I've used with other computers. Because of it's design where the prongs fold into the adapter, and the cable that connects to my computer winds around fold out hooks, the entire device compacts to smaller than half the size of just the power adapter of my previous dell, not to mention the cables. Also, the innovative magnetic release is a wonderful safety feature. Both my wife and I have laptops that we use at home on couches and tables regularly and that leads to spread across the floor. These get snagged or tugged or tripped on and pop off instead of pulling the computer. Yet they are firm enough that the computer can be easily moved around without worrying about the cable coming off.
    Despite daily use and travel, winding and unwinding, it never frayed or cracked or flaked. Even with the occasional (once or twice) overheating because a blanket accidentally got pulled over it.

    power cord

    • Written by from Whitehorse

    I have just read many of the reviews on the power cord as I am about to purchase a new one since my old one is about to die. I have owned my mac book for about 4 years and this is the 1st piece of equipment from the original purchase that needs replacing. The cord is starting to fray badly but this is to be expected, I think, after 4 years of a lot of use. I also travel full time through work (and personal) so the cord has continuously been thrown around in backpacks & suitcases. If this is how long my old one lasted, I look fwd to the new and improved one! Thanks Apple.
    p.s...the old one, if placed properly, still works too!

    Apple Quality Through and Through

    • Written by from Brewster

    I really don't know what these people that are giving this cord one or two stars are doing. For crying out loud it's a power cord! It is not the computer itself! How hard can this be?! Apple can only do so much to make it idiot proof, but some of you have really stretched the definition. If you have any doubts as to whether it's the right tool stop being such a pompous jerk and ask an expert at Apple!

    This cord is very well made. I love the magnetic breakaway cord. Having owned a pc for years, and having to replace the power cord on every on of them because of poor quality or some tripping over it, this cord is a Godsend. For the rest of you... Grow up!

    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

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    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.

    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.
