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)

    I know everyone that reads this will find it an utter surprise that I think this power adapter is terrible! I'm not going to reit I know everyone that reads this will find it an utter surprise that I think this power adapter is terrible! I'm not going to reiterate what everyone says but as I sit her and write this review, I am staring at the black electrical tape that is wrapped around half of my adapter cord. Honestly, Apple you have some beautiful and functional products and I love them BUT for shame, providing such an utter, cheap and breakable adapter to people who spend $1000+ on a macbook. When does it get to the point you actually bother to LISTEN to the hundreds of thousands of complaints about this and FIX THIS DEFECTIVE PRODUCT???

    Not that this review is any different then the thousands of others, but I need to vent. My power cord is wrapped from top to botto Not that this review is any different then the thousands of others, but I need to vent. My power cord is wrapped from top to bottom in electric tape because the insulation has a half-life of about a week. I try so hard to love Apple and I really do love my computer but it doesn't hold a candle to the pure rage of a battery and charging cord designed to fail in order to force people to repeatedly buy a new one. When I can afford a new computer Apple no longer exists to me. My $300 PC from middle school still has a functioning power cord almost 10 years later, is that really too much to ask from a company that charges $1,000 for a laptop?

    If you're going to give us such a shoddy, fragile charger, DON'T charge $80 for a replacement. What a effin' joke. Do either one If you're going to give us such a shoddy, fragile charger, DON'T charge $80 for a replacement. What a effin' joke. Do either one of the following: 1) make a better charger or 2) charge $10 for a replacement.
