    No it will not. An older MagSafe will work with MagSafe 2 via the new adapter but it will not work the other way.

  • No. This adapter is meant for use only on the new Macbook Pro with Retina display. It is not backwards compatible. The Magsafe to Magsafe 2 converter does not work with this product.
