    Onto my third...

    • Written by from Royal Oak

    Like some of the other reviewers, I have had to replace my power adapters every 2 years as well. It's getting ridiculous. I know Apple can design one that doesn't fray and come apart so what's the hold up?

    Terrible product!

    • Written by from Roselle

    Apple, what are you doing? Products used to last. This "newer" 60W MagSafe Power L-shaped Adapter lasted two years exactly. Two years!!! Does this mean I have to purchase adapters every two years now? It's ridiculous that they cost $79! I still have the original iPod and iPhone adapters and they're still going strong. How about improving this product? So disappointed with you. Is this how you treat your loyal customers? Listen to us!

    Worst Design

    • Written by from New milford

    I love apple products and thought it was me who was twisting the cable. But this is you Apple. It is a pathetic design .
    and they asking me to pay $79 to replace it.I don't know how many other reviews apple would need to realize it that it is their issue.So many people cannot be so wrong. Apple you need to think.I have no other choice rather than 1 start at least.

    Difficult to use, breaks often, and costs a fortune

    • Written by from Hixson

    The grip for the plug that goes into the wall is tapered and slick. That makes it hard to unplug, as it takes a very firm grip to keep my fingers from sliding off.

    The end that plugs into the laptop is also difficult to grip, because it is rounded and tiny. I have to try to wedge my fingertips/fingernails between the adapter and the laptop to unplug it. It's a pain in the neck.

    Like many users, I have already had to replace my adapter twice because the cord frayed. I didn't abuse the first cord at all, and I was very careful with the second one.

    As if the cords aren't bad enough to start with, the last one keeps trying to twist so that the adapter points at the ceiling instead of at the laptop. I have to twist it to plug it in, which can't be good for it. I tried turning the box (in the middle of the cord) up on end to force the magsafe end to go in the right direction, but then the cord coming out of the box sagged, and it was a pain to keep the box from falling over.

    This adapter is a piece of junk that needs frequent replacements to the tune of $80 a pop.

    if I could give this product 0 stars, I would.

    • Written by from Boise

    This is literally my 5th charger that I've used for my macbook. I take very good care of my charger. I wrap it when it is not in use, and I make sure there are no kinks or bends in the chord. my chord is not frayed and none of them have been, and they KEPP BREAKING.
    it is absolutely ridiculous. I've bought 4 new chargers, and I'm absolutely tired of it.
    If I could give this 0 stars I would.

    Form over function

    • Written by from West Haven

    When buying a MacBook or MacBook Pro, be sure to add the cost of three or four power adapters to the total cost of ownership. In as short of a time as a few months, the rubber on the wire starts to disintegrate, and then the wire frays, and then you need a new adapter. I've started wrapping the wire near the MagSafe connector with electrician's tape as soon as I buy an adapter as a preventive measure.

    Advice to Apple: use a thicker, higher quality wire wrap that will last more than a few months. You know, like the wires on PC laptop power adapters that cost less than half the price of an Apple adapter!

    Defective product

    • Written by from Brookfield

    This is the 3rd charger I've purchased for macbook I've had for 5 years. It is the worst, the others had worn out cord connections, and eventually didn't work, this one surges and turns my computer off and doesn't work with no fraying of the cord connections.

    Agree with Poor Design

    • Written by from Muncie

    I am very happy with my Macbook, which has lasted over 6 years and still serves it purpose. As far as the charger goes, however, I believe this is the third time replacing it with what I would consider normal, every day use. The cord has come apart at the magnetic connector once again, and electrical tape helped for a while, but it is time to give in to purchasing another one. $79 is VERY expensive for a charger - I think I will definitely look into upgrading my laptop in a year in the nearer future and hope that the issue has been resolved in the newer models. I didn't realize this is so common until reading the other reviews.

    The only thing I am pleased about is that I am not the only one having issues! I don't use my MacBook all that often, and STILL am having to replace my second charger. Rubbish Apple!

    Second one in 3 years. For what Apple charges for their products you would think there would be a more reliable charger.

    Does Not Last...

    This is the third time I'm replacing my Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter. The design is WACK. The soft material that the cord is made from breaks very quickly… Thinking about buying a cheaper version. I'll see how that works….

    I've gone through three of these having a macbook pro for about 5 years. The first one I had lasted the longest but the second and third only lasted about a year each before breaking.

    It's not even been a year and i'm about to be on my third charger. I am a university student so this thing does go back and forth with me to uni everyday, but i make sure to stash the charger neatly in my bag, wound like it comes in the box.

    Worst charger design

    • Written by from delhi

    Bought a mac 4 years back and i love my mac, but as much as I love my mac, I hate my magsafe charger. Its a badly designed product, it just isn't suitable for normal day to day use. I have bought 4 chargers, each an year, because all of the chargers got ripped off from the head. At least they are consistent with ripping off every year. And to top all of this, every time you go to the store with the broken charger, asking the service people for help, you get to know that its your fault as a user, you don't know how to use a charger. I mean really ? These are the standards Apple is maintaining ? If your charger is not designed in a way to take wear and tear each day, its our fault ?? Around the world people are making chargers, and none of them go bad as easily as this one, none of them have such bad reviews. Maybe its time Apple takes up the responsibility of their badly designed product, and stop blaming their own customers cause at the end we always have a choice of never coming back to a company, while you guys rely on us.

    I would say don't buy as it is probably going to need replacing in a year or two but not purchasing means loss of use from your laptop.
