Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)
Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)
The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.
When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.
Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.
This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.
Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Power adaptors do not last
Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past beca Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues. …

I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.
I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power ad I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.
I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months.
Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month!
I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC. …

New and Better than the Old MagSafe
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 feel 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) …

Not sure why people are having issues.
I own several Apple power adapters for machines we own, and the only way that these power adapters "don't last" is when people mis I own several Apple power adapters for machines we own, and the only way that these power adapters "don't last" is when people mistreat them. I constantly see people unplugging these power adapters by pulling on the cord, and not the plug. I also constantly see people wrapping the cable tightly around the brick -- DO NOT DO THIS! Leave an inch of slack before you wrap up the power cord! Never in 3+ years of using these power adapters have I ever seen them fail as badly as what people have shown me. It's not a craftsmanship issue, it's just plain abuse and neglect. I see proof of neglect all the time, not just in Apple power adapters, but in PC notebook power adapters as well. Same type of failures. Also, people shouldn't be complaining about a $79 price tag when the Mac that they paid for was $1199. Come on, seriously? Do you people have a job, or something? The only thing I don't like about this power adapter is the little plug that connects to the brick. I will never use that thing. Otherwise, a perfectly fine AC adapter. …

In the past I have loved apple products. However, recently, I feel as if they're just too much maintenance and money. I have gone In the past I have loved apple products. However, recently, I feel as if they're just too much maintenance and money. I have gone through numerous phone chargers due to shortages. Recently, my Apple computer charger broke. This was due to using Apple's design where you can wrap the cord. Be very very careful or it will break. Better yet, don't use it at all. Now I have to pay $80 to get a new one and who knows how long it will last. Definitely rethinking my future technology purchases. …
