Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display)
Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display)
The 60W 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.
Compatible with MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display.

The ground shield wears out.
The ground shielding of the cord wears out in less than a year.
Good design, cheap material, I suppose.

Wow, i can't believe there are so many negative reviews on this charger! I have a late 2013 macbook pro retina and i guess becaus Wow, i can't believe there are so many negative reviews on this charger! I have a late 2013 macbook pro retina and i guess because i use it either in bed or in my living room, i've had no problems with it. I did see one review that feels the way i do, that the magnet is strong enough...it doesn't come out on me and the wire is not frayed...i suppose because i don't travel with it, accounts for it being in good shape. The one thing I don't care for is how HOT it gets when first charging...but i just keep it on a hard surface and all seems to be ok. I wonder if, like the other person said, we got ours from a good batch and maybe there are a lot of inferior ones out there? I wanted to buy another one so I wouldn't have to move it back and forth, but like the other guy, i'm wondering if i'll get stuck with an expensive piece of junk? …

This product is atrocious
I have had to drive two hours to replace one of these chargers at least once, and sometimes twice, a year ever since I bought my M I have had to drive two hours to replace one of these chargers at least once, and sometimes twice, a year ever since I bought my Macbook Air. I love the computer, but I am typing this just before leaving to replace the charger for the sixth time. There is no excuse for how bad this product is. I follow the instructions, wrap it like you're "supposed to" wrap it (kinda like "Hey, just don't hold your phone that way!"), but I still routinely have to replace this piece of absolute garbage. Shame on you Apple. Shame on you. …

Unbelievable...3 Power Adapters in less than 10 months for this computer!
This is my 5th Apple computer, and the ONLY one I have EVER had to buy a replacement power cord for!!! Why?!?! This this is AWFU This is my 5th Apple computer, and the ONLY one I have EVER had to buy a replacement power cord for!!! Why?!?! This this is AWFUL. Something about it makes it brittle enough to break, again and again...in the exact same manner. I use this laptop no differently than I have the other 3, but the cord on this one keeps breaking! I am so careful with my electronics, but tonight I am gobsmacked over finding the magnetic charger in the middle of the living room floor separated from the rest of the cord by several feet. Not the first time for this particular model. I am furious that I have to buy another. FURIOUS! This may be the final nail in the coffin of spending upwards of 3X the cost for a laptop as every other brand available, seriously at $85.00/cable, I am into this for almost $400.00 for power supplies alone. So Angry.
And do not EVEN get me started on how touchy and ridiculous it is just to get it to charge my laptop, all the hoops and pressurized air blasts to clean it off enough to get a sound connection for it to decide if it "feels" like charging my computer....uugghhh! …
