    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.

I have a Macbook Pro Retina and the original magsafe2 frayed on me and I had to replace. My computer is just a little over a year old so I was a little upset about having to buy another adapter, so I bought an Apple original MagSafe from a computer repair store and this adapter. The tech said I would be fine. It has been an off again on again and now definitely OFF for sure nightmare. Of course when I took it to the shop was one of the days it decided to work. I am going to have to schlep back there and try to get my money back. I wish I had just bought another Magsafe2.

This is terrible and I cannot charge my notebook for a presentation.

It has a solid hold and resists being pulled out as well as the MagSafe 2 connection. No doubt others are having some issues but I am happy that for my set up the adaptor works great.
