Product Information

  • The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook Pro with Retina display.

  • Magnet not Strong Enough

    I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T des I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T design but the magnet holding it in is way to weak. I don't know if it is because its smaller profile, but I can barely touch my laptop without the thing falling out. It is becoming extremely annoying to the point where I might need to walk around with a brand new MBP with its power cord duct taped to it! I believe the magnets are in the systems itself but please Apple come out with a revised adapter with a second set of neodymium magnets in the charging tip to counter act the problem and grab the machine tighter. I'd rather it be bulkier and work properly. I understand the point that is supposed to break away, but not by a feather landing on it! We miss Steve Jobs. I hope this isn't the type of product glitches we will have to get accustomed to now. Apple is supposed to be Apple, This isn't Apple at all.

    If I sneeze it unplugs.
    If someone shuts the door the change in air pressure makes it unplug.
    As the tides shift it will unplug. If I sneeze it unplugs.

    Forget about working with the computer on your lap.
    The tiny magnet I used in nursery school to gather iron filings in the sandbox was stronger.
    And it unseats so easily that time and time again when I think it's charging it's not.
    Bad, bad, bad. For shame. And it is so easy to fix.

    I've checked it with a specialist and the main IC that controls the voltage together with a SMD resistor was blown up. I cannot see the IC model therefore cannot be replaced.
    The power supply is always connected to my UPS therefore there is no chance of power surge.

    This was the last thing I was expecting from a MAC power supply.
    I have an HP DV5 for 6 years now and still works completely.

This time I'll reinforce the cord before it starts to break. At least I learned my lesson. The neck of the charger frays so easily. Yes, part of it is that I am an idiot, but the other part is that these things are way too fragile. If I'm going to pay 80 dollars for a charger, I think I deserve a product that can take a bit of wear and tear. Its not like I'm abusing the thing, but I take my computer many places and the charger follows. It doesn't travel well. It starts tearing way to fast. I think Apple could easily make a better charger.(but why do that when your product costs 80$, needs to be replaced every 6 months and your customers are loyal and don't have an alternative, right?)
    On a positive note, it charges nicely and doesn't over-heat too easily.
