    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!

    If I could give it 0 stars I would

    • Written by from Lugoff

    I bought my Macbook Pro in June or July of 2010 for college. My charger that came with the laptop broke a year and a half later. I bought a new one and it really hasn't been that long and the new one has broken too!! I buy Apple products because of the quality and longevity they they are known for. I just don't understand why the chargers are so "disposable" in quality but definitely not disposable in price. $80+shipping and handling? really? PLEASE, does Apple read the reviews we leave? Work on a better charger!!

    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

    Second one failed. Apple engineers should be ashamed of this product. It is a total failure, and reflects very poorly on Applr products.

    Love my Macbook. Never moved it from my desk in my life. Charger frayed and stopped working 8 months after purchase. It cost 80$. Enough said.

    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!

    sad magsafe is sad

    • Written by from Knoxville

    i just had to get a replacement for my 13" macbook pro, which is not even one year old. the cord never leaves my living room, so it's not like i have been abusing the product, but it started having trouble connecting and finally died for good yesterday. fortunately it is still a free replacement under warranty, but i suspect it will happen again. at $80 a pop, that's not good. looks like there are lots of people with the same problem.

    Worst Power Adapter ever.

    • Written by from Barrie

    Apple really needs to step up and provide a better power adapter than this model. I've had 2 break on me in just under a year from the cord bending till it no longer works. A close friend had also had similar problems with his, and has replaced his twice now as well. I have never had power adapter problems with past laptops (Non-Apple), and this product is not "innovation".

    Garbage!!!!

    • Written by from Conroe

    This is the only part of a MAC that is garbage! The rest of the machine functions beautifully. I wish Apple would do their wonderful computers justice by designing an equally wonderful power supply. But no they don't, they are ok with this garbage power supply that is over priced. Anyone who has had a MAC for over a year is very aware of this problem. Apple you should be ashamed of this horrible product that you force us to buy. Disgusting!!!

    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

    First adapter has lasted 9 months - time for the second now :(

    • Written by from Bradford

    Echoes of the numerous reviews describing the initial intermittent connection problem followed by the extremely hot box that is either sitting near you or plugged into the wall. Well, we are at complete failure stage as of last night so, overall it lasted 9 months as I ordered the computer 12/10/2010. Not acceptable if you ask me.

    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.
