    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.

    Started blaming the power adaptor for a while but like others, checked with an older MBP and they worked fine.

    First the light Started blaming the power adaptor for a while but like others, checked with an older MBP and they worked fine.

    First the light goes out but the laptop thinks it's charging. However charge either doesn't go up or goes up really slowly. Complete waste of money. Not that there's anything to charge since my MBP Pro is hosed post Yosemite update...

    Refund please?

Wiggling it in to have it charge gets pretty frustrating when you are in a hurry and just trying to have the laptop charge. I am writing this now because I am back at the store buying another one. What a pain.
