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.

In the previous cases the wire has split and frayed near the power-pack. This is without putting any excessive strain on the cable, or even frequent transportation. Unacceptable quality control. With such a thin cord it seems inevitable that it will happen again. Horrible design.

    I've read most of the reviews here, and they seem to me to be mostly nonsense.
    Yes, it unplugs easily when you pull on it. That's I've read most of the reviews here, and they seem to me to be mostly nonsense.
    Yes, it unplugs easily when you pull on it. That's the point.
    Yes, it unplugs even easier when you pull the plug up or down (versus sideways or straight out). That's also the point.
    If it wouldn't, it is quite clear to me that it would possibly damage the laptop or the connector (as happened often with the pre-magsafe power connectors).
    I certainly do not have the experience that it unplugs either all the time, or when it isn't supposed to.
    If even a bit more force would be required to unplug this connector, it would also very likely (especially on a bit more slippery surfaces, like my glass table) pull the laptop along with it.
    In short: Great product, don't change a thing, don't bring back the L-shaped plug.
