    Simply amazing. My old charge broke so we went to the Apple Store and got this one and it works a charm.

    Why no problems with any of my MagSafe adapters?

    • Written by from San Anselmo

    I've used the MagSafe adapters without any problems since they were first introduced.

    Between home and office, I've bought well over over a dozen MacBooks and MacBook Pro's for myself, my family and my staff, starting with three early 1.83 GHZ MacBooks, then two 2.0 GHZ 13" MacBooks, then moving to 2.2 GHZ & 2.4 GHZ 13"MacBookPro's, three 15" MacBook Pro's, two 17" MB Pro's and two 13" MB Pro's. Not a single Apple brand MagSafe power adapter has ever failed, though we have had problems with some "bargain-priced" aftermarket clones from Asia.

    As far as my experience goes, the only Apple ones that stop working have had their magnetic connectors stepped on. Aside from that, the only issues we've had are the result of using the hard plastic MacBook covers; some of them prevent the connector from fitting securely in its recepticle.

    great power adapter

    • Written by from Falls Church

    i like that they changed the look and that it is also magnetic. i prefer the new adapter because it is smaller and more portable.

    Not sure what people are doing to their chargers but...

    • Written by from Pleasant Grove

    I'm not sure what people are doing to their chargers but mine works great! I had the same charger for my MacBook Pro that came with it when I purchased my mac in early 2012. I just had to purchase a new one about a month ago because I left mine on an airplane and I haven't had any issues with it. I throw it in my bag with all my books, tablet, and laptop, I even wrap the cord around it when I pack it up and haven't had any issues. I love the magnetic attachment because it last longer than those you plug in. It is expensive but then again when did Apple ever claim to sell things cheap?

    DO NOT MIX AND MATCH

    • Written by from Lafayette

    So first of all this is a battery charger we're reviewing, it should not have this many bad reviews it either works or it doesn't the rest of it is how well you take care of your things.

    One thing Apple won't tell you though is some parts are just not compatible with other parts just because Apple likes to upgrade things and end up overlooking what is not being mentioned. Chargers especially. If you have a MACBOOK and are using the MACBOOK PRO charger, this will drain the MACBOOK'S battery. If you are charging a MACBOOK PRO with a MACBOOK charger this will kill the charger. DO NOT MIX AND MATCH!

    These chargers are made specifically for that computer model, so next time you purchase a charger or battery make sure you look up the model number not just the style of your computer.

    Solid and Reliable!

    • Written by from Woodinville

    I work in an enterprise IT environment with hundreds of MacBook Airs/Pros and so naturally I see quite a few of these things. I have seen a couple outright fail, and a couple cases of frayed cords, but for a very large machine deployment this is fairly astounding... great design and excellent build quality. Don't step on it and these guys will last a while.

    MagSafe Feature is Wonderful

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I've had this power adapter for years now and never had a problem. It seems very well-made. And the MagSafe feature is just amazing. There's been a few times when I've tripped over the cord and this feature probably saved my MacBook -- that alone is well worth the price.

    Not bad :)

    • Written by from Fort Myers

    I like it. I had an issue with my old one that was causing the computer to crash completely almost eveytime I plugged it in. After hours of waiting at the mac store for help we finally figured out it was the charger that had something wrong with it, not the computer. I'm still on the same computer, but different charger. So far so good. It seems to be working fine now. I however, do not like how small the charger part is, I think thats part of what the problem was. It seems they could break easily, although with my new one I have not had an issue, so as long as you are careful with it it should be fine. As with anything, mac is always good with their products and replacements. They replaced my charger absolutely free after I had all the issues.

    Awesome

    • Written by from Belo Horizonte

    I have mine for 3 years now and works fine so far. It is small, light and the magnet conector is great. I dont like to take care of these kind of things and always let it down on the floor, then it is hard to be broken. Awesome.

    It's a power adapter!!

    • Written by from temple hills

    Have kept two of these around for a while never had a problem. Just had one die of unnatural causes (50lb Lab puppy used it as a chew toy) but the other one still works great. The wire on the new 85w unit for my new Mac Book Pro is a little stiff so I will be careful not to wrap it too tight but it should last quite a while if treated properly. Of course your mileage may vary.

    No problems

    • Written by from Missoula

    Three months on works perfectly. My old one lasted five years, and I see no reason this one won't. The only caveat is that, as a minor electronics geek, I have learned to care for cables that I can't afford to have break. All flexible cables have weak spots where they enter and exit other parts and components. I abandoned the fold-out hooks on my old adapter and this one too because of the angle where the cord exits the brick. Pulling the cord at ninety degrees to wrap it will make it fail sooner. I also never pull on the cord to release the MagSafe. Take simple precautions and this will last years.

    Awesome Product! Lasts forever!

    • Written by from North Bay

    Not sure what people do with their power cords, but I have had mine for 4 years before this newer version without a single problem. This new power cord is ever better and I haven't had a single issue within the past year or so, nor has anyone else in my family had an issue with their new power cords.
    Apple is always improving their products and this is proof of that. So I wouldn't say that you should go throw this off a cliff and expect it to be intact, but otherwise it WILL stand the test of time, not a couple months - unlike many reviewers have said on this page.

    Great idea!

    • Written by from New Egypt

    Love the magnet connection! Easy to pop on and off. I have had it for 1 1/2 years and no issues or need to replace (luckily it seems from others). My daughter has had her Macbook for a year and her cord has lasted too. So I'm not sure if there was a bad batch of orders or luck, but I'm completely happy!

    5 Years

    • Written by from Ogden

    My wife and I both have 5 year old 60W MagSafe Power Adapters. They both work fantastic and they get used a ton! I use my computer enough that my current battery (which is not the original) has almost 1000 charge cycles on it. Don't yank the charger out of the MagSafe port by the cord. It's a safety feature, not a lazy feature. Take care of your expensive machine.

    4 year old original model and still kicking...

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I'm not sure what most, unhappy folks do with your power adapters. I have a 13" Mac Book Pro which I take everywhere with me (to and from for each day). Four years into it and I am still using the original 'old' style power adapter. It shows no signs of wear a tear near the magnetic connector.

    MagSafe Adapter

    • Written by from Green Valley

    I don't know what people are doing to their power cords, but I've had this for a year now and have had absolutely no problems with it. I've taken it overseas, to crummy motels, to sketchy coffee shops, and of course in my hole of an apartment. I'm a graduate student and put daily abuse on both the computer and this adapter, and I have never had a problem. My cat has even chewed on it, and it still works fine. 5 stars!

    Perfect piece of equipment!!

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    Ive read the horrible reviews on here but I have never ever had a problem with this piece of equipment. If I had to grade its performance I would give it an A+. Although it is a bit pricey to replace, Im not too worried about it. Im sure its going to work like my Macbook Pro for a long time.

    Not sure what everyone's talking about..

    • Written by from Whitman

    I've had my charger for my mac pro 2010 since I bought it in the fall of 2010 and it's worked fine all along. It's a matter of transporting the charger using the horns to wrap the cord around the adapter and treating it with care, as if it's an extension of the laptop itself at all times. The only reason why i'm here is I believe it's run it's course and I'm in the market for replacement 3 years after I got it.

    Lasted six years

    • Written by from Springfield

    I don't know what everyone else is doing with their power adapters that has them complaining about them. I have had my MacBook since 2007 and am just now replacing my power adapter for the first time. It's worked great for me. I use mine multiple times daily, plug it in, travel with it, roll it up and unroll it. Now it's having connection issues where it plugs into the body of the MacBook.
