    Not sure why people are having issues.

    • Written by from Blaine

    I own several Apple power adapters for machines we own, and the only way that these power adapters "don't last" is when people mistreat them. I constantly see people unplugging these power adapters by pulling on the cord, and not the plug. I also constantly see people wrapping the cable tightly around the brick -- DO NOT DO THIS! Leave an inch of slack before you wrap up the power cord! Never in 3+ years of using these power adapters have I ever seen them fail as badly as what people have shown me. It's not a craftsmanship issue, it's just plain abuse and neglect. I see proof of neglect all the time, not just in Apple power adapters, but in PC notebook power adapters as well. Same type of failures. Also, people shouldn't be complaining about a $79 price tag when the Mac that they paid for was $1199. Come on, seriously? Do you people have a job, or something? The only thing I don't like about this power adapter is the little plug that connects to the brick. I will never use that thing. Otherwise, a perfectly fine AC adapter.

    In the past I have loved apple products. However, recently, I feel as if they're just too much maintenance and money. I have gone through numerous phone chargers due to shortages. Recently, my Apple computer charger broke. This was due to using Apple's design where you can wrap the cord. Be very very careful or it will break. Better yet, don't use it at all. Now I have to pay $80 to get a new one and who knows how long it will last. Definitely rethinking my future technology purchases.

    Good idea, to fragil, and way too expansive

    • Written by from West Palm Beach

    Before 2 years ago I was always a Bill Gates fan than my parents bought me a Mac for a graduation gift laptop works unbelievable but within 1 year the charger started to shrivel. In my opinion the charger should be better qaility and for $90 I'd rather buy a PC. So apple you have lost another costumer.

    Breaks so much!

    • Written by from Gastonia

    I have had my MacBook Pro for a year and a half and I am on my third charger. I take really good care of my chargers but it seems everyone that I order ends up with protruding wires and will not charge. If you can avoid this charger do so!!!!!

    Do apple make these?

    • Written by from Caringbah

    Last one lasted a couple of years and only after putting up with jiggling the connection and electrical tape repairs. My latest one is also falling apart at a rapid rate.

    These simply do not have the durability expected from apple products.

    Poor Charger

    • Written by from Grand Terrace

    I am extremely upset. I bought my mac book pro in January of 2011 and have bought two chargers thus far and am currently in class and have realized my charger is NOT working. After looking closely I see it is because of the internal wires. I am quite familiar with this situation since it has happened to me twice in the past. This now means I will have to buy ANOTHER charger meaning I will have bought three chargers in the past thee years. So pretty much I will have bought a charger every year. I find it interesting that the side of the charger that you are able to attach and detach cord has a larger diameter compared to the side you attach to the outlet. If so many people are complaining Apple why can you not fix this problem, why can you not make both sides of the charger the same diameter? Are you purposely designing the chargers this way so we have not choice, but to buy more. I love my Mac, but I will say I never had this problem with my PC.

    Buy Two at a Time

    • Written by from Bel Air

    I love Mac. I love my Macbook. But could Apple PLEASE come out with a power adapter that won't twist and break so easily? I'm going on my third adapter in two years. The second I was a lot more careful about not twisting it or putting it an awkward position or angle, but alas, it didn't do a thing to help me. Great laptop, terrible power adapter.

    Just purchased my 3rd charger for my MacBook

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I love apple. I own an imac, macbook, iphone, ipad, and an ipod. However, simply stated, this charger is terrible. I am on my third charger for the same computer. Despite thousands of complaints on numerous online forums, apple customer service will not acknowledge the issue, and therefore has refused to provide me with a free replacement. Own the issue apple! Offer at least one free lifetime replacement. For something as simple as a power cord (very much a context item) it is a shame that you will no doubt loose some of your core customers.

    Faulty design

    • Written by from Buffalo

    I bought my mac book pro in 2010 ( first ever mac) and I now have to buy my third power cord. I transport my mac back and forth to school everyday, this means wrapping the cord in the morning then unwrapping and then again at night when I go home. so twice a day 7 days a week. I stopped using the included prongs to wrap it as it was too tight and I could see the wires twisting inside this was before the first one broke "T" style at the computer and the adapter box. The one that broke just now broke at the box on the computer side and the entire life of this cord I would loosely coil the two cords together and put in my bag. The high cost and the multiple breaks is unacceptable. I just started grad school and was planning on getting a new mac as this one no longer keeps up with the demands of Architecture school. Some of the needed programs do not work with a mac but I was going to try powering through with bootcamp but this may be the reason I change my mind as Im still a few months out from upgrading and now Im having to buy a new cord before hand. I was a PC guy before I may be again.

    Lasted just long enough to not be under warranty

    • Written by from Lindsay

    This thing lasted just long enough to no longer be covered by the one year warranty. I took it to an apple store and was told I had to buy a brand new one. A charger that lasts one year? Jeez.

    The Worst

    • Written by from Ajax

    I love Apple. For about 4 years, I've been using all their products (iPod Touch, Macbook Pro, iPhone) and I don't plan to stop. About 2 years after buying my Macbook Pro, I bought a second charger because I assumed was my fault. I bought a THIRD charger less than 3 months later to my complete surprise. That one managed to last me until now, where I will have to buy a fourth adapter over 2 years. Ridiculous. I love you Apple, please fix this NOW.

    Wear out too easily

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    I have had to replace this adapter once already, now I have to replace it again. It wears out too easily. It seems like Apple purposely engineered their cords cheep so you have to continually replace them. We have the same problems with our iPhone adapters. They wear out by the end that plugs into the device. I love the magnetic element, as well as the LED and portability. Unfortunately, anything that requires replacement on such a consistent basis deserves less than one star, which is what I'd give it if I could.

    Designed to Fail

    • Written by from Longwood

    Piece of JUNK!! First power cord lasted an expected number of years, however the new power cord is poor quality and lasted less than a year!! Apple has obviously moved toward poor product quality....and what choice do you have but buy another one if you have a Mac product. Designed to fail is what I say, 'cause hey...why make a quality product when you know your consumer will have to buy it time and time again, especially at $75 bucks a pop!! Shame on you Apple.

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter is good but nothing stay forever, I had this charger for about 1-2 years now maybe even more. I dislike this T-style on the little wire side, The first time I seen that I really had a bad feeling about that, that will cause me problems with the natural put away system.
    "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." from the apple web site.

For my multiple PC's that I have owned... I have never had to buy more then the one that it comes with. Never buying a Mac again because of these money hungry worthless products. GET A PC.

    So I have had my charger for about 1 and a half years. It is a little scuffed up, but it works fine. If people would take care of their things they might not break as easily.
