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) …

1 star because you can't do zero stars

I'm still paying off the 3 grand f I'm not about to drop another 80 dollars on a 4th power cord, the last one I only used 3 times. I'm still paying off the 3 grand for the laptop itself.

no stars should be an option.
Seriously, Apple? With as many times as I've had to replace a charger, I could have bought a new macbook with that money instead. Seriously, Apple? With as many times as I've had to replace a charger, I could have bought a new macbook with that money instead. Get your sh|t together and fix this product. At the time of this review being written, you have 89% of people giving this a less than satisfactory rating, 80% of that being only one star. In my opinion, even that is generous as a no star option would be more adequate.
That means 11% of people find this product satisfactory or better. 11%...that is a miserable F. …

SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!
So happy I read these reviews today. My cord suddenly stopped working about a week or so ago. After looking it up and finding out So happy I read these reviews today. My cord suddenly stopped working about a week or so ago. After looking it up and finding out how much the replacement cost, I hemmed and hawed and didn't immediately purchase. Well the reality finally hit me that 1) I didn't want to take the chance with a cheap knock off and 2) I can't live very long without my Macbook. So I decided to bite the bullet and went out to the Apple store on my lunch break today. I decided to peruse the online reviews before doing so and found a dated review that advised the user to just push on the springy pins inside the narrow oblong magnetic connector for a quick fix. I wasn't sure if the fix would work for me (everything was at home) so I went anyway and sprang for the replacement. Lo and behold, after getting home tonight I gently and easily pushed on the pins a couple of times, using a straightened paper clip (BE SURE TO UNPLUG EVERYTHiNG FIRST!!) and my Macbook started charging!!!
Returning the plug tomorrow for my cash! Hope it solves the problem for all of you who were just like me...distressed, desperate and upset about a short lived, expensive to replace plug. Good luck!! …

Can i use this A1344 60W Magsafe Power Adapter for MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009)

Here is the catch, if you update your mac in the following year, current 15 inch model requires charger with 85W power, so you will end up with a unusable A1344. On the other hand, 85W charger can be safely used with both old and new 15 inch model(old one will only drain 60W from it) So it will be a good back up even if you update the machine. The only down side is its slightly heavier weight and larger size. …
