    The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.

    The converter's m The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.

    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.

Never had a problem. Apple didn't have to make this $10 product. They could have required us to buy new power adapters with the new size MagSafe connector. I'd say that's pretty good. Not sure why others are having problems. Everyone I know who has one raves about this little part that saves an adapter. Buy.

    After a couple of weeks, the converter no longer will charge the battery. It does transmit power but without the ability to charge After a couple of weeks, the converter no longer will charge the battery. It does transmit power but without the ability to charge it is basically useless. Really disappointed.
