    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.

    The converter worked fine for about 7 months with a Magsafe 1 charger on a new laptop. Now it won't charge the battery. The Magsaf The converter worked fine for about 7 months with a Magsafe 1 charger on a new laptop. Now it won't charge the battery. The Magsafe 1 charger still powers an older 15" MBP just fine, and a Magsafe 2 charger works on the new laptop. So it's not a problem with the laptop or the power. The converter itself is bad.

    This small converter just does not work consistently. It wastes us time to figure out the charging problem and $ for it. Suggest This small converter just does not work consistently. It wastes us time to figure out the charging problem and $ for it. Suggest never to buy this kind of defective product from Apple.

For the first month or so it worked fine, then slowly, it started to show glitches. All of the sudden it would be losing connection or failing to charge and just keep it stable on (for example) 30% of battery. Detaching, reattaching, cleaning, firmly pressing, it had no effect. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And this never happens when I attach it to the normal magsafe 2 adapter that came with my Macbook Pro.

    Another annoying addition is that when one has a Thunderbolt display attached to its Macbook Pro, and the Macbook Pro loses its electricity feed, the attached display goes on and off, thinking that the Macbook Pro is being detached and attached. So when the magsafe converter fails to work, the Thunderbolt flickers... ARGH! And that for a 3500+ euro setup!
