    Wonderful disposable adapters

    • Written by from Clifton Park

    I love Apple. I love them so much that I look forward to my magsafe adapter failing yet again so that I can transfer more of my money to Apple's coffers. Gotta love the "functionality" though. Use it for a few months and then chuck it for a new one. Wish other companies catch-up on the fine-art of designing disposable adapters. At least one technology Apple truly "pioneered". I pity those poor suckers using ancient PC technology. Oops...just realized that I spent too much time typing the review not noticing that my magsafe now shows only a faint green light. It's ka-ching time for Apple!

    worst

    • Written by

    if you guys don't change the design of the L-shape charger, at least lower the price to $10 or something. You guys charge $79+tax for a product that will only last couple months. Macbook is great and all, but the charger isn't at all

    Worst Apple Product

    • Written by from Syracuse

    I don't understand how Apple can come up with these beautiful products - the macbook, ipod, ipad, iphone, etc - but can't make a working power adapter.

    I am really good to my electronics. However, my THIRD MagSafe power adapter (for a macbook I purchased in Jan 2009) just went. The power cord near the connector just splits. I take pains to make sure the cord is always in the right place, and never twisted so this doesn't happen. All my efforts don't matter - it still splits. I'm going to the Apple store tomorrow and because I purchased the last one only 7 months ago, I really hope its under the 1 year warranty so I don't have to shell out another $80 for a new one.

    This is just an awful product. Every other electronics company knows how to make a good power adapter. For the life of me, I can't understand why apple can't catch up.

    ridiculous!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've had 7 chargers in the past 6 months... some lasting mere days before frying themselves (which were ultimately replaced). The most recent one lasted 3 months! I'm a student, I can't afford to keep doing this. The original my laptop came with lasted 3.5 years before it had to be replaced, this new one is just plain ridiculous!

    MagSafe power adapter

    • Written by from Camrose

    Ive gone through 2 in less than 10 months. The second one just quit on me and I rarely ever took it out of the house, only picked it up by the brick and practiced every precaution to prevent any stress on the cable joints. I have two papers due tomorrow and my laptop wont charge. If you are a student looking for a dependable computer DONT get a MacBook until apple licenses third party manufacturers to make the MagSafe adapters, maybe they can get it right. P.S: I was unable to describe my true feelings about this product due to the language filter on these reviews, but I assure you there were alot of "expletive deleted's". Oh and I wasn't able to give this product less than 1 star

    3rd Time's the Charm

    • Written by from Evanston

    I love the design of the magsafe but I just purchased my 3rd one in less than 3 years. My two previous chargers broke in different places so there is more than one weak point. The charger just is not durable enough. I have taken good care of my chargers and have tried to protect them. Hopefully this next one will last.

    Disgraceful

    • Written by from Colorado

    I love apple products but they should be ashamed of this cord. The plastic began to disintegrate after only 8 months. It rarely travels, so it's not from overuse. The most ridiculous part of the whole thing is that they charge $80 to replace it when it's so poor quality in the first place.

    Really sick of this

    • Written by from Dawesville

    I love my MacBook but I've replaced the power cord twice already and it's just broken again. It's ALWAYS the same problem, the cord just falls apart at where it connects to the MacBook. You would think that after so many complaints and bad reviews that Apple would produce a product with more strength there. The rest of the power adapters are fine except for the flimsy cord so now I have three perfectly good chargers and laptop that is useless until I buy a new adapter.

    60W MagSafe Power Adapter Is Horrible

    • Written by from Crestview

    I have had my 13" MacBook Pro for a little over two months. The power adapter just quit working. I can't believe Apple is using this horrible product. I would expect that computer which costs as much as this MacBook would have have come with a power adapter that would last longer than 60 days. I am now forced to quit working. Drive to the store to replace this expensive, poorly designed power adapter just to complete the work that I am doing on a Saturday afternoon. I am not a happy camper at this time.

    I agree with all other macbook users.

    • Written by from Roscoe

    It's been said countless times, but these chargers are the worst. Every other computer out there has one that you can disconnect before the dc adapter. Replacing the chord costs about $3. Not only are they built into the dc adapter on the mac, but the chords are flimsy and fray well within a year of regular usage.

    I've bought about 4 or 5 adapters in the past 4 years that I've owned my Mac at $80 a piece each. You can bet that this latest one to break is getting cracked open with a screwdriver and soldered together by hand, because there's no way that I'm going to continue to fund this kind of highway robbery.

    Apple, there are 1,504 negative reviews on this charger and more come rolling in every day. Please recall this product and design one that actually works.

    I'm on my fifth one of these

    • Written by from peterborough

    I have had to replace this exact cord a total of five times. $85 plus tax at the local store equals about a hundred dollars each time. Thats around 500. This is almost half of what i paid for the actual computer. Love the computer, just not the cord.

    New MagSafe Power adaptor

    • Written by from Silver Spring

    We have gone through two $79 magsafe power adapters in the last 14 months. You have to admit that the design is very cool in appearance, however the devise doesn't last. Apple really needs to take a look at what people are saying in these on-lin reviews and redesign the charger. The problem is with the magnetic connector which connects into the MacBook. We have found that this is the weak link in the charger and the connector fails within about 7 months under normal use. Replacing these chargers is getting rather expensive and frustrating. APPLE ENGINEERS - WAKE UP AND PLEASE READ THESE REVIEWS!!!!
