    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.

  • Poor poor product not befitting of Apple's engineering reputation

    I've just ordered another one of these converters, not because they are good products but because the last one stopped working aft I've just ordered another one of these converters, not because they are good products but because the last one stopped working after about a year of use and I have no alternative.

    Given the multitude of extremely challenging engineering problems Apple routinely excel at solving, it seems bizarre to me that they could mess up what boils down to a solid lump of metal with no moving parts and a few electrical connections. From an engineering perspective this converter is less complicated than a power strip and I have plenty of those which have lasted decades.

    Given the reviews, this is clearly not something Apple really care about or want to put time into. They're waiting for everyone to upgrade their machines...
