    Don't understand!

    • Written by from White Lake

    Why all the bad reviews? I have a Mid-2010 13" MBP and my 60W Power Adapter hasn't had a hint of problem. I doubt there would be a difference between the one in the MBP box with these!

    No Problems At All

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I've had this MagSafe adapter for about a year and I've not had a problem with it yet. I use the adapter every other day, and when not in use, I keep it with the cord coiled in pouch in my laptop bag. Having read some of the negative reviews here, I suspect these folks are coiling the cord around the brick on the retractable hook. When I first received this adapter, I realized coiling the cord that way would be a problem. I coil the cord around three or four fingers and then I secure it with a cheap velcro strap. The cord doesn't fray and all is well.

    Dont know what you guys do....

    • Written by from Charlotte

    6 years of use, and no issues. My wife has had one for almost 4 years... again, no issues. People must not be using their brains and are either bending the cords or maybe they need to plug into a power conditioner. I know tons of people with MacBooks and NONE of them have this issue. It's like anything else, they aren't indestructible. I have had so many other issues with non-Mac laptops, and you really just can't compare the products!

    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.

    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.

    Excellent product if you're responsible

    • Written by from Cedar Park

    These cables are great, with an excellent design. Some of the reviews state they break within 6-8 months, but my refresh has been more like 1 every 3 years. A lot can be said for being careful, and keep in mind these cables are covered UNDER WARRANTY and UNDER APPLECARE, so if you're complaining about having to buy one, the first one either paid itself off or its your own fault.
    The new "L" shape design is much improved over the "T" shape used previously and I love the safety benefit of the Magsafe plug itself. Take good care of it and you'll be fine.

    How can this be?

    • Written by from Hampton

    I bought my 13" Macbook in 2009 and never had a problem with the charger until, my puppy decided to use it as a toy last night in 2012...sigh! Now I am disappointed to see how many of you got such bad quality adapters since I have to replace mine!
    How can this be? Apple is such a great product!
    I will buy a new one today and cross my fingers to get the same kind I had all these years!

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Pooler

    I have never had a problem with the magsafe charger. It has worked great for over 2 years on my newest MBP and 6 years for my 1st generation MBP. I am buying a second one so I can keep one at home and one at the office. Great product.

    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.

    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!!

    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.
