Product Information

  • 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

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    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)

    This is now the 3rd maybe even fourth charger that I'm buying. They all have the same fatal flaw: the rubber casing wears out, ex This is now the 3rd maybe even fourth charger that I'm buying. They all have the same fatal flaw: the rubber casing wears out, exposing the inner wires. Taping it with electrical tape can only help for so long. Eventually, even that doesn't work and I end up back here. I wish they'd come up with a better design. Perhaps making them out of paracord might make them more flexible and less likely to break. Apple, you should be ashamed to sell a product with so many negative reviews!

  • Amazing adapter, never failed on me

    My Macbook Pro 13" 2012 is my first Mac, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the power cord. It's design is ingenious and the magnet is super us My Macbook Pro 13" 2012 is my first Mac, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the power cord. It's design is ingenious and the magnet is super useful (strong enough not to fall out all the time, but weak enough to fall out when needed. This is unlike the *new* MagSafe 2 which took a step back in history and uses the old useless easily breakable T style connector). The L design is absolutely fabulous as I can have the cord coming out the back of my Mac or along the side. I've has my mac for 2 and a half years now and I have NEVER had a problem with the cord. No deteriorating, no breaking, it's flawless and much better than any cord I have ever seen. I have NO IDEA how all these other customers manage to break their cords, for I couldn't even if I tried.

    I am so angry with the power adapter of MacBook Pro. It is a serious issue and the Apple needs to fix it. It is ridiculous to purc I am so angry with the power adapter of MacBook Pro. It is a serious issue and the Apple needs to fix it. It is ridiculous to purchase the adapter for $100 in Canada. I am a grad student and my income isn't that generous to spend it for an adapter every year. I had to buy the third adapter within less than 4 years. And stop forcing me to rate this product when I am not even writing a positive feedback.
