Product Information

  • The 45-Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook Air 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.

    Redesigned specifically for MacBook Air, the adapter is the perfect traveling companion. It 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 only with MacBook Air with MagSafe Power Port.

  • Works Fine - BUT PRICE IS RIDICULOUS

    I've got a MacBook Air 13" (2011) that I feel is the finest travel computer for a businessman ever invented. I love this little w I've got a MacBook Air 13" (2011) that I feel is the finest travel computer for a businessman ever invented. I love this little workhorse. Also, the power adapter on mine works just fine ... no problems. Instead of unplugging every time I hit the road, I thought it would be a good idea to buy a spare for my computer bag. Wrong!

    $79.95? Is this someone's idea of a joke? Eighty bucks for a power adapter? Sure the cell phone manufacturers have run this scam for years, refusing to standardize on a plug configurations/power ratings so that the buyer is forced to buy yet another power adapter (I've got about twenty of them sitting in a drawer). But those pieces of junk are only $20 or $30. $80? For what?

    I've got AppleCare, so I'll just keep on plugging in and unplugging the one adapter I have until it dies, then you can replace it for free. Really, you folks at Apple build the coolest stuff on earth, but you do need to re-think your policy of over-charging for the small stuff.

But the power supply is already intermittent. It is under warranty, but they will not pay me for the half-day I will spend going to the Apple store to get something that should last longer than the computer!

  • What's up with the cables?!?!

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I love my MacBook Air... I am an Apple junkie... We all have iPhones here at home... we have an iPad and iPods... but these power I love my MacBook Air... I am an Apple junkie... We all have iPhones here at home... we have an iPad and iPods... but these power cables are just not up to par with Apple's quality... Apple products are pricy, we buy them because we love Apple... but I have spent so much money replacing cables that I'm starting to loose that love... Please Apple, my second cable is fraying already!!!... And I have to pay $80 yet again!!!... I don't need the whole thing, just the cable, but I was told that they don't sell just the cable, so I have to buy the whole thing again!!!... My youngest son is going to start online schooling and I was looking into giving him my Air and buying myself a Pro, but I don't think want to invest so much on a laptop when I have to continue buying replacement cables at such a high price... Thank you for your wonderful products, but your cables are really bad!!!
