    Very overpriced for the quality

    • Written by from Nanaimo

    I have had my Mac Book for approximately 3 years, the laptop itself is very slow and has a very short battery life, but it's the power adapter that really make me angry, my power adapter has broken and I was thinking it would be no big deal that I would just purchase another one, but then I went to buy one and found that they are about 100$ at future shop, I honestly don't understand this, I have always liked mac, but after this I can't even use my computer, so I have to spend 100$ on top of what my computer was purchased for, I for one don't find that fair at all, the charger shouldn't even have broken in the first place, and for the record there is no point in making a magnetic attachment if it doesn't work! The charger shouldn't break the magnetic piece should come out, that is saying something if the charger brakes instead of detaching, I don't plan on purchasing a 100$ plug for an old mac that probably is only worth double the price of the plug. NOT PLEASED APPLE.

    Poor Charger Quality

    • Written by from Oceanside

    The wire near the magnetic connector has manage to fall apart. The wire is now exposed. The price is much for not lasting the lifetime of the MacBook. For the price of the product you would expect a non faulty product.

    Worst Charger Of All Time

    • Written by from Ham Lake

    I take good care of my electronics, chargers included, and this is now the third time I have had to replace this particular product. I have a MacBook Pro from 2011 - with my previous computer, a MacBook I purchased in 2008, one charger lasted me almost three years. On top of that, it costs $80? Seriously? For an obviously faulty product, if the rating it gets from other Apple users is any indicator of its quality, or lack thereof. Please consider either modifying this design, or reducing its absurd price.

    Shame on you, Apple.

    • Written by from Texcoco

    It is just sad that a company like Apple creates such cheap and bad products. I've always supported with pride Apple's overpriced products because of its quality and durability, but the fact of having to buy 2 new chargers in less than a year leaves me completely dissapointed. I'm afraid I will have to start to disapprove Apple's name with all my acquaintances and move on to another company for all my family's gadgets.

    really bad design REALLY BAD APPLE, Hello??????????????

    • Written by from Poway

    Two MB Pro 13's - Two broken MagSafe Power Adapter wires...both of them right where the wire meets the connector...Brought the first one to Apple and they said there was no recall on this type. So I threw it away. I'm sure I should have saved it...Then the MagSafe Power Adapter for my wife's MB did the exact same thing, the wire covering split so I put some shrink wrap on it...helped for a little while until... last night, it started sparking where the wire goes into the white box (wire covering is split there too) and could have started a fire so my daughter yelled to me and I unplugged it. Dead. Off to the Apple Store for them to tell me sorry, and I guess I'll have to spend another $80...

    Bad Quality

    • Written by from Hamilton

    Your laptop only works if it has power. Maybe there should be more emphasis on the quality of the power supply. I have had more problems than I want to say. I replace this product about once a year.

    Now I'm depressed. My power adaptor cord just split, exposing wires, and won't work anymore, so I went online and ordered another despite all the horrible reviews. But what are the options? I replaced my old MacBook last year and the adaptor that came with it cracked in two places and started sparking after a few months. I thought it was a fluke. So I dug up my old adaptor and it worked just fine, even though it's now 6, 7 years old. I don't mind it finally cracking open, since I got good use out of it. But I don't want to have to keep replacing the darned thing every few months like so many people here! The older adaptor was sturdier and easy to coil. The new adaptor is flimsier and flops like a fish when you try to coil it. I already know it won't last long. Apple, mistakes happen. Your customers will forgive you. But ONLY if you CORRECT the PROBLEM.

    On my third adapter in one year

    This adapter is terrible, I am on my third one this year. At $80, this is getting ridiculous. Will be my last Mac laptop.

    Power cord for my Mac Air

    • Written by from Lake Worth

    I love my mac air! I dislike the power cord! I am about to buy another power cord going on my THIRD?! I know its not me now by all these comments but also after I replaced it the first time i knew it not me because I didn't coil it, it stays in one place and it still ripped and exposed the wires.

    Like everyone else, my laptop is fine, just about to purchase my third charger. The first one, the wires became exposed and then stopped working this second one just stopped working this morning for no apparent reason. At $80 the chargers need to be better lasting. I've only had my MAC for 18 months. Right now I'm trying really hard to remember why I made the switch because none of my PC's chargers ever broke, and lasted me at least 4 YEARS each.

    Such a superlative computer. Such an admired company. Why such a cheesy part? Why such customer gouging prices? What a shame.

    I've bought 3 chargers at this point. I take care of them as if they where made of crystal and they just won't last!

    Guys from Apple: Do you really use this product as much as an end user does?
    Please upgrade this. I love all of your products but this one is just not working for me.

    I live far away from an Apple Store so, when I order something online, it takes 1 month or more to arrive and I really need to use my Macbook everyday.

    It won't last

    This adapter won't last. Mine lasted for about 2 years and now the inner wires are totally exposed. Apple should recall this product!

    This is the most embarrassing product apple makes. How can a company charge $80 for a charger that is only going to last a year?

    My chargers have always stopped working with no signs of damage on the outside.

    These chargers are great when they actually work, however in the past year I have replaced my 80$ charger three times. It appears to be the skinny cord that constantly looses its connection. One of these days Apple should put a little effort into their charger design, I would think that 1K+ horrible reviews would be enough for them to realize their pos product needs reworking.

    Not durable

    I own my Macbook pro since a year, and this is my third charger. Product breaks easily, and it's way too expensive for its cheap quality.

    Fix it!

    • Written by from Hendersonville

    I don't know how a company can make such polarizing products that are forced to work together: the mac book pro (which I love) and the charger (one of the most incompetent pieces of electrical equipment I have ever owned). I am on my forth charger in four years and will NOT be buying another one. The last one only lasted 6 months before it just randomly stopped working without any warning. I hope they understand this is a deal breaker for customers, but maybe they don't care. Please fix this immediately!

    The expensive part of the charger is obviously the charger itself, but the cord coming out of it is weak and cannot be replaced.

    Is it possible Apple designs them poorly so you have to buy a new one every few years? Maybe, but it's not like you have any choice.
