    Great if you aren't completely stupid

    This is a great Power Adapter. It is better than the old design as said by many in the reviews. For those who are considering buying one, don't pay attention to the idiots that can't take care of their equipment. I have had mine for quite a while now with no problems. The people who complain of fraying are simply careless.

    The planet is fine, the people are f*ed

    • Written by from Vilnius

    This product is fine - it's sturdy for it's size and weight and efficient for charging time. For all the people complaining about it breaking near the tip of the charger - who's fault do you think it is?

    Do YOU:
    *even use the clip-on on the wire to make a straight connection?
    *you carefully wind the wire around the "horns" when carrying it?
    *you ever pick up the whole charger by the small cord?

    If you do, then it's your fault. Get huge chargers with mega layers of protection - go buy a DELL, that will last you for ever...

    2 Years and going

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I am unsure what everyone is complaining about, and how some people managed to go through 3 power adapters. You guys are clearly using it wrong or abusing it.

    I have had my Macbook along with adapter for 2 years and everything works just perfectly. The adapter has gone through a lot of travelling and damage but still works great.

    I travel to and from school everyday and my adapter comes along with me. The chord has been tripped over numerous times in classes, I am surprised everything is still working tbh.

    Let's Compare...

    • Written by from South Jordan

    Alright, so it sounds like these have a tendency to stop working after awhile. Mine still works great, and I love it, but I've only had it for about a month. But if you've ever shopped for a replacement power adapter for a PC laptop, you know that they are just as expensive. And the problem with them is that, in my experience, they break EASIER! Because it's not the magnetic connection, every time someone trips over the cord, it not only brings the charger close to its demise, but also brings the connection to the motherboard closer to ITS demise. And once that happens, it's new laptop time.

    It's very difficult to produce a bullet-proof charger, because they definitely get the most abuse out of any part of the macbooks, or any laptop in general. Just realize that ALL laptop users are in the same boat, and really Apple still has higher quality. The magsafe connector is something I wish was on EVERY laptop, patents or not, because they're just THAT MUCH BETTER.

    Oh, and to the few who complain because the wall charger is bulky, just switch to the 3-prong extension, and you have yourself a classic laptop charger with the adapter in the middle of the cord. And if you still want to complain, go buy a desktop, because again, every laptop user fights that same thing.

    Sorry if this post seems a little troll-y. Didn't mean to come off that way, it just seems that many of these reviewers are a bit....ignorant?

    No complaints here.

    • Written by from Forney

    What is everyone else doing to their power cords that they're fraying and/or stop working? I've had mine for a year and a half with no qualms and only charge once the battery of my Mac is near dead. There has to be something reviewers are doing they're not letting on to in order to have to replace a cord more than, at most, once a year. I mean, maybe it's denial that you could do anything wrong to contribute to something not working, but some people have to understand things wear out over time. Maybe they stop charging because they're being over-used. It's expected they would fail or lose juice if they're constantly charging your Mac. I agree it is an expensive replacement, but really it shouldn't even be an issue if they're taken care of properly and stop working over a considerable amount of time.

    Adapter Works Great

    • Written by from Oakvlille

    I have had my adapter for more than 9 months now and I have never had an issue. These negative reviews are probably people who have not handled their accessories with great care. Do not listen to them they work fine!

    Excellent product, but not for people who abuse their stuff!

    • Written by from Richardson

    I've have two laptop Macs and one iMac with these power adapters and none have ever failed. I have a friend that is too lazy (or cheap) to get an extension cord, so he stretches his power adapter cable so tight that it keeps popping off. He thinks this is a design flaw, when instead it is EXACTLY what it supposed to do! You're not supposed to put a strain on the cord or connector. That should be readily understandable to any sane person.

    Some reviewer here said that they had to "hold my Mac at an angle or hold the connector in" that should never be the case unless he/she is doing what my friend does, which is putting tension on the cable or stress on the connector. If you have to hold the connector in, you're doing something WRONG. It's that simple. The cord should have NO tension on it, the connector should have NO stress on it. Seriously, what is wrong with people? They treat their computer like a football, or like a hammer and then whine and cry when it breaks.

    These power adapters work great and last a long time IF you take decent care of them. Use your head and treat your stuff with some respect and you won't have any more problems with broken adapters.

    Apple Quality Through and Through

    • Written by from Brewster

    I really don't know what these people that are giving this cord one or two stars are doing. For crying out loud it's a power cord! It is not the computer itself! How hard can this be?! Apple can only do so much to make it idiot proof, but some of you have really stretched the definition. If you have any doubts as to whether it's the right tool stop being such a pompous jerk and ask an expert at Apple!

    This cord is very well made. I love the magnetic breakaway cord. Having owned a pc for years, and having to replace the power cord on every on of them because of poor quality or some tripping over it, this cord is a Godsend. For the rest of you... Grow up!

    Take Care of It

    • Written by from New York

    I have owned Macs up the wazoo. I have never had an adapter, of any of the many variations die on me. If yours dies it is probably your fault. The adapters cannot overcome the laws of physics. Most people treat these like they are made of iron. Sharp bends, pressure on joints, cable being pulled because it is passing underneath the laptop and it sits there for hours... etc etc etc. Take care of it. Use the brackets to wrap it and always make sure that cord is loose at all connecting points. It will not die on you. Magsafe has saved my laptop so many times... just that is worth the money.
