    The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it.

Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor!

    As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing.

It will only allow charging when it's in a "perfect" orientation with the connector on my MBP, and it requires a lot of fiddling and twisting to find that perfect spot. Otherwise no connection and no charging. It's easier just to use the original charger that came with the computer, which means I need two different chargers in the house for different MBPs. Bad job, Apple!

I use this product while at a desk, so I don't have "falling out" issues. I do, however, disconnect the laptop 2 or more times throughout the day and each time I have to worry about the battery recharging.

    After about 6 months, both MagSafe2 to MagSafe converters stopped charging my MacbookProRetina reliably. You have to tweak and wig After about 6 months, both MagSafe2 to MagSafe converters stopped charging my MacbookProRetina reliably. You have to tweak and wiggle and adjust it to get it to start charging. Forget about charging it on your lap. This only works on a flat desktop where once you get the angle just right, it will charge fine. Until you bump it slightly.

    And just to be clear, I have tried this with a stack of different power adapters (which all work fine on my older Macbook), and with two different converters, so it isn't the adapter, but the converter design.

    And the MBP charges fine 100% of the time with the MagSafe2 adapter that came with the Macbook. So I don't think it is dirt on the Macbook itself. It is either the lame $20 converter, or a very finicky connection on the Macbook that doesn't like the converter.
