    • 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!

    I HIGHLY RECCOMED THIS PRODUCT

    • Written by

    I have went through 3 chargers breaking on me with the old charger for the Macbook Pro. In desperation I went looking for ANOTHER charger because of the third charger breaking.
    I came upon this charger and was really excited to see how much they have improved their product. This charger feels very different from the old one and it is well worth the extra $20 to $30 difference.
    The charger is sleek and very sturdy. The peice that connects to the computer is made VERY VERY well and when plugged into the computer stays in place when bumped and fits nicely to the side of the computer unlike the old charger that stuck straight out.
    If your iffy about buying this product ... DONT BE ... I garuntee you will LOVE THIS CHARGER.

    MagSafe as the product name means

    • Written by from Kluang

    I trip on my wire last night, viola, the wire just pop up without even moving my MacBook Pro 13", even the MagSafe adapter stay in place, everything from my MacBook Pro 13", the power connector head and the MagSafe adapter is beautifully preserved. Well done Apple!

    love it

    • Written by from Prospect

    the old version of this worked fine for one year until the wire starting fraying and coming loose from the plug. This design is so much better and it looks like I won't be having that problem anymore.

    Works great! Love the new design.

    • Written by from Sandy

    Nice I really enjoy it. It does what it needs do to and it does it well. The new design is a lot better sleeker and safer. I find that it comes out with ease without pulling my laptop much. After reading some of the reviews on it some mentioned that it didn't do this as well as the old design I fully and completely disagree with that. It does it well keeps my lappy much safer. I had to test it when i first got it (I always test my products). I am quite satisfied with everything mac! Thanks guys you make a great product!

    Resolved my "Not Charging" issue.

    • Written by from Fresh Meadows

    My initial MacBook Pro charger (which came with the Mac) was not even a year old, and already started to have issues with the MagSafe. It would constantly say that my battery was not charging -- even when it was plugged in!

    After much hesitation, I purchased this one and it works perfectly (so far). It resolved the "Not Charging" issue. Hopefully it won't fall apart as fast as my first charger that came with the Mac --- these are expensive!

    Awesome

    • Written by from Andover

    This new charger is great, the old one after about a year and a half broke, brought it to the apple store, told them I wanted a new one for free, and they went rent to the shelf and gave me one, and I have to say that Apple has great customer service.

    Well built

    • Written by from Corfu

    Ok, I've only had this product for three days now, so I can't speek for its long term duribility, but it's been great so far. The DC power connector feels much more sturdy than the previous model, but CAN block some ports (ethernet and firewire 800/mini displayport, depending on macbook/13'' pro). You can (as I do), flip it the other way so that no ports are blocked, however, this cannot be done when using a hardshell case. Still, that would be the case manufacturer's fault, and not apple's.
    Also, the swappable power plugs are a huge convienence. I leave the extended one plugged in at my desk, and just swap it out for the mini plug when not there (living room, possibly school/work).
    Also, some people have complained about the $79 price tag. THIS IS ACCUALLY A REASONABLE PRICE FOR A LAPTOP POWER CABLE (mostly because it also includes the 'brick' converter, which is built-in to the computer on most desktop systems).

    Very Impressed! But the MB Pros?

    • Written by from Salina

    I am extremely happy with my newest purchase for my MacBook! This adaptor works great and stays put when I want it too! Typing up papers and having fun on the net is much less worrisome now that my adaptor won't unplug itself all the time. The innovative design of the cylinder running alongside the laptop vs a box sticking out, genius! Now I can use my Mac actually on my lap. However, when is the MB Pro line going to come out with the same design -with an 80W?? I know plenty of people who would buy one! Please GET ON WITH MAKING THEM! :D

    Best Power Cord!!

    • Written by from Edenton

    The power cord is sturdy and well build. When moving a couch I accidentally dropped it on my power cord, the thing still survived! Do not listen to those nay-sayers.

    looks way better with my macbook pro

    • Written by from Rowland Heights

    So, I recently bought a new Macbook Pro. My friend's adapter for her macbook died and she had to buy a new one, and this one was the only one they had available, so she bought it. Because she had a hard case, this wasn't a good fit with her computer. So, I traded her my adapter for this one because it looked way cooler. There are also some very functional upsides. First, it is much harder to accidentally knock out of the port. Second, it does not overheat AT ALL which is a drastic improvement from the old ones which used to burn me when I touched them. Third, it's much slimmer and looks way better when paired with the aluminum unibody Macbooks in contrast to the white adapter, which looks dated and cheap.

    WAY better than old design

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    i just purchased this product bc my old power adapter broke. this new design prevents the cord from bending right at the magnet, which is how my old charger broke. since the cord comes out of the magnet parallel to the computer side, and not perpendicular like the old one, it can't bend and cause the wires to fray over time... like it so far!

    great power adapter

    • Written by from Falls Church

    i like that they changed the look and that it is also magnetic. i prefer the new adapter because it is smaller and more portable.

    New and Better than the Old MagSafe

    • Written by from markham

    I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feels differently built (for the better), it doesn't nearly get as hot as the old MagSafe did (incredibly this one stays very cool, even on extended periods of time, although that could be because it's new.) Lastly, the actual connector is pretty innovative, feels much sturdier and less prone to fire/breaking/separation issues. It also wraps around a better/more effective contour. All in all, for $79 compared to $99, and the benefits i've named, it's a much better buy than the previous MagSafe (still overpriced, apple)
