    Lasts indefinitely, performs as specified

    • Written by from San Pedro

    I have owned two MacBooks for four and five years respectively. One power adapter recently failed, fraying near the Magsafe connector, and I just purchased a replacement. That adapter was used by a family member who insisted on treating it harshly. Mine continues to provided perfect service.

    The same is true of the two MacBooks I purchased for my company, also four plus years old. These are shared, used by various people for travel. The adapters remain intact, and continue to provide good service.

    The MagSafe feature has prevented major damage to these MacBooks on more than one occasion, which makes the $80 price worthwhile. My experience is that, with reasonable care, these adapters last indefinitely.

    new power.

    • Written by from chstlottesville

    Interesting comments. Thank you, as you surprised me! My three here old cord works like a trooper. At times, it gets a bit hot [after a long day and night] its expected. But, 'never as HOT as any friend's dell or HP, etc. The only reason it needs replacing, my son's pup chewed it up. ~I am sure the new one will serve me well.

    Never any problem with my Power Adapters

    • Written by from North Vancouver

    Just want to add my experience with the power adapter. I guess people who review the product have had problems and therefore are purchasing a new one. We have bought several just for the convenience of not having to move the power cord each time we take the powerbook to another location. In all the years we have had powerbooks - probably 5 or 6 now we have never had one fail.

    Very Impressed! But the MB Pros?

    • Written by from Salina

    I am extremely happy with my newest purchase for my MacBook! This adaptor works great and stays put when I want it too! Typing up papers and having fun on the net is much less worrisome now that my adaptor won't unplug itself all the time. The innovative design of the cylinder running alongside the laptop vs a box sticking out, genius! Now I can use my Mac actually on my lap. However, when is the MB Pro line going to come out with the same design -with an 80W?? I know plenty of people who would buy one! Please GET ON WITH MAKING THEM! :D

    Reports of my lack of quality have been greatly exaggerated

    • Written by from Orem

    I have owned three Macbook magsafe power adapters. They have lasted quite well. The first one had issues with the connection where it was pulled out of the wall. That one was of poorer quality. However, my last two have lasted quite well, and the magnetic aspect of the adapter is fantastic. It has saved my computer many times by simply releasing instead of pulling the computer down.

    I think there is still room for improvement, but they are overall the best adapter on the market because of how nice the magnetic aspect is.

    MagSafe Power Adapter

    • Written by from Kissimmee

    This is a great product, I don't know why so many people have issues with their chargers because I've had mine since May 2010 and I trip over it all the time and yet it still functions perfectly. Also, my brother has had his macbook since 2008 using the same MagSafe Power Adapter. My best friend also has had his macbook pro since 2007 and uses the same charger and has no difficulties. So overall fantastic product!

    Best Charger Ever!!

    • Written by from Truro

    I think this charger is the best because if someone pulls at it by accident the magnet will release and your computer will stay exactly where it is, and it seems to be a quick charge (Even though I think that's just the computer itsefl) But overall, great charger!!

    Amazing!!

    • Written by from Zephyrhills

    I absolutely love the MagSafe Power Adapter since I have tripped over my laptop charger cable before, this one just detaches from the computer without bringing the computer to the floor.

    MAG ONLY

    • Written by from PORT ORCHARD

    This is a review of the magnet end only. I got no issues with the rest.
    Because the magnet leaves the computer and 90 degree turns there is more leverage applied from the cord and it pops off very well and often. I think the previous straight out plug design works better at staying attached. The new one is I must say more elegant and streamlined but less functional.

    Lucky for me I still got one.

    Great charger, great design! We've had our white 13 inch MacBook since May 2006 and when the original charger stopped working about a year ago we needed to get another one. We decided to go with this new design instead of the original because it laid flat closer to the computer. So far, so good. It works well and we have zero complaints. Also, having a plug that rests closer to the MacBook is nice, especially with little kids in the home.

    Maybe not perfect but the best there is for now.

    • Written by from Cortland

    I'm a PC technician and have had my macbook for almost 4 years. 3 months ago I replaced my power adapter because I wore out the cable with years of use. It still works, but the light doesn't and you can see the metal in the wire at the block. I taped the heck out of it and it's the permanent hookup at the desk. The new one was not cheap but well worth the money spent on it. Much better than the dozens of computers that we have had to rewire or cobb up because the power adapter was broken off the motherboard or case. I will take this any day vs the alternative. Not to mention that most of my colleagues with PCs are on their 2nd or 3rd machine since I've owned this one. I've never seen a situation where Apple didn't replace a unit that was legitimately a problem, within and sometimes out of warranty.

    PERFECT ITEM

    • Written by from Caledonia

    This is a perfect item. I really like the fact the cord now exits at a right angle rather than straight out. Extremely pleased.

    Lasts and works great

    • Written by from Keller

    Still have the original that came with my 2010 MB Pro. It has survived countless times tripping on the cable and being yanked and being stomped and everything my 2-year old can throw at it. Whatever these others are experiencing is probably related to the electrical in their abode or abuse.
