    Worst product

    • Written by from Detroit

    I love all my apple products. But I have to say this charger is their worst product. I had to buy 2 of these chargers within 3 years. The first one melted, the skin of second one has split in just 14months and from my past experience I fear that it will break in few months. I took lot of care while using the second one and let me tell you I use this charger mostly as a fixed charger because I hardly carry this laptop anywhere. Please discontinue this and design a new one.
    Extremely disappointed.
    Buyers: take lot of care.

    Please rework this design ASAP...

    • Written by from Portsmouth

    I love my MacBook. I really do. But I despise this power adaptor because of its ridiculously high failure rate. I'm writing this review on a non-Apple device because my MacBook battery is dead. Why? Because the power adaptor failed, without warning, AGAIN (third one). Please, Apple, read these reviews. I absolutely REFUSE to continue shelling out $79 for this horrendously substandard product. Please fix this before you lose me back to a PC....

    Rethinking This Design Flaw

    • Written by from San Jose

    PLEASE FIX THIS DESIGN PROBLEM!

    Apple really needs to focus on redesigning this charger. I love the macbook and I've always gone back to a macbook no matter what but they really need to do something about this charger. Since 2007, I've owned a macbook and since then, I've paid for about 5 different replacements for the charger. I try to be very careful but in the end it fails and breaks at the ends of the charger. I'm getting really tired of spending upwards of $80 for each charger; just because my macbook has important information on it, I can't afford to just go with a generic brand fearing the worst might happen. So Apple, please fix this problem, you've had many years and countless complaints.

    Horrible.

    • Written by from Gladwyne

    I have had horrible experiences with these chargers. I have had my Macbook Pro for about 4 years, and ive gone through probably 4-6 chargers. The last charger i got, I wrapped the parts that usually break in electrical tape. Today, it broke again. I have to get another because if not, I cant charge my laptop, but I would give it 0 stars if I could. Bottom line: These chargers stink, and break often.

    Major fail - too expensive to replace with the more of the same Apple junk

    • Written by from Northville

    Apple blew it with this one. Extremely weak design. Hard to not have a negative opinion of this item. Complete fail and they should have recalled this adapter and replaced it at their expense. Fat chance right?
    While the failure is not rare, it's less common with Apple where you just pay more. Isn't that their hallmark?

    Disappointing.

    • Written by from Biloxi

    I love my Apple devices but I don't understand why they there isn't a better charger. The material coating is too thin and I have had 3 chargers break because the plastic melted! It's pretty ridiculous. I love my macbook but a $1,000 + computer should not have to have the charger replace every year!!

    I have TWO failed power cords and I'm expected to shell out another $80 but for yet another new one. This thing needs to be recalled!!

    Poor build quality.. No more apple for me

    • Written by from Worcester

    Simply put, Apple keeps producing flashy products that don't hold up to normal wear and tear.

    This cord failed me after a year of use, and during this time I was conscious of how these consistently fail those who have them and made sure I always wrapped up and appropriately packed the cord up after use. It still failed. The fact that apple is asking me to shell out $80 for a replacement is laughable. For a product this flawed, there should be a recall, or at least reasonably priced -and improved replacement parts offered through apple. Rather than fixing this problem and supporting their clientele it seems apple just wants to milk us by forcing us to buy one at a ridiculous price, else lose the function of an expensive computer. I'll grab an aftermarket replacement before giving another dime to this company.

    As a consumer, this was just the last big disappointment for me regarding my feeling toward, and loyalty to apple. It's safe to say my next computer will be a PC, and I'll never go back to apple again.

    Worst quality

    • Written by from Sacramento

    the worst quality of apple products... is the charger for the macbook pro. Lasted for about 16 months, and it's super expensive to replace. Very unhappy with their adapter quality. The wires broke off right at the base of the adapter :(

    Really bad quality!

    • Written by from Lyon

    I love my macbook but every 6 months I need to buy a new power adapter because the cable breaks. And it's not the cheapest of cables. Every time I go to the Apple Store to buy a new one I feel like buying another computer brand altogether. This is not up to Apple standards!!!

    Terrible! 3 Chargers in 4 years...

    • Written by from Winston Salem

    I have had to buy 3 charges in the past 4 years... All of them keep ripping on me and eventually just stop working. At $85 incl tax, per charger, that is a high and unreasonable cost to pay - especially as I'm having to buy a new one almost every year!!!!!! If the chargers would last, they would be great, but they don't - so big thumbs down.

    If I could give this a zero-star review, I would.

    • Written by from Lexington

    I have had three or four power adapters stop working on me, even when I wrap them up to put them away. These are terribly designed, with no durability whatsoever. There is no reason these should cost upwards of 70 dollars.

    Awful design

    • Written by from johnson city

    I'm sad to say that I now have to go out and buy a third MagSafe Power Adaptor because mine broke. The design is very poor.. you'd think Apple would be able to come up with something safer and sturdier by now. Not happy!

    6 Chargers in 5 years

    • Written by from Greenwood

    We have had a MacBook Pro for over 5 years now. The first one bit the dust by our daughter, and we have had our 2nd for a while. Anyways, over the course of owning a MacBook Pro, we have had to replace the charger 6 times. That's absolutely ridiculous. I love my Mac, but they need to come up with a better charger!

    Very poor design!

    • Written by from Harleysville

    Like many others, tomorrow will be the 3rd MagSafe unit in 2 years. Just shelled out $129 today at Apple Store for a new battery in my sons Macbook. After driving an hour to drop it off at his college, he called tonight to tell me that now the charger is shot. Fortunately he can borrow a friends to charge up the new battery but this is really a pathetic piece of hardware from Apple.

    4 year old Lenovo laptop still runs fine on original battery and power supply....hmmmmm

    Do not last!

    • Written by from Draper

    The adapter I received with the purchase of my computer lasted less than two years. I thought I must have done something wrong because it became very fragile after about 8 months. I forked over the $80 to buy anew one and took extra care. Well, 6 months later and the new one broke. Ridiculous. Now I have this computer I paid a ton of money for and have to continually buy new $80 chargers for. Remind me again how macs are better than PCs?
