    I wish I could use a negative star

    • Written by from Atlanta

    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.

    Worst charger ever!

    This is the worst charger ever! I have to buy my third charger now. If the next macbook will have such a cheap charger, I will not buy anymore any macs!

    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?

    How are these even legal to sell?

    • Written by from Whitley Bay

    I've just replaced my 3rd Magsafe which, like other people have mentioned, melted the cord connected to the adapter from which huge sparks emitted burning and melting the cord further. This was first thing in the morning after it was plugged in all evening with the problem. All things considered, we're very lucky it didn't happen in the night otherwise the situation could have been much, much worse. I won't be doing that again. The design is majorly faulty and given the number of complaints (and images of melted adapters and computers online), I don't understand how these are even legally sold.

    six of these chargers and not a single good one

    • Written by from Indio

    Between my boyfriend and I we have gone through SIX of these chargers in the couple of years we have had our MacBooks. My first one melted apart, my second one stopped working unexpectedly, and my third one is melting apart too. His first one was chewed by a cat (clearly not Apple's fault), his second one literally caught on fire during usage, and his third one gets so hot that it burns your hand to touch and it won't charger the computer. We have different era MacBooks, but we both have had so many many problems with these charges. It bothers me to no end that we will have to shell out another $80 after spend thousands on the laptops and hundreds on replacement chargers. NOT HAPPY!!!

    Piece of low quality junk

    • Written by from Bexhill on Sea

    Another power adaptor failed. I have to replace these pretty much each year. Doesn't matter how carefully you treat these things, they are fundamentally flawed. I have 14 significant individual Apple products ( iPods, iPads, MacBooks, Mac TV, Mac mini ....) and these adaptors are singly the only thing with which I have an ongoing problem. Evidently a design problem, which perhaps the wonder-designers can't work out... Poor after sales service too. Apple becoming just another electrical consumable producer.

    RUN!

    • Written by from Fairburn

    I'm on my third charger in past two years. This will be the LAST time I buy a charger if I buy one before I consider going back to PC. The little white box on the charger got really hot this previous time and later that day I realized that it had melted the rubber on the little cord so now the wires are exposed. I got some tape to tape it up and I'm going to try and ride this one out. Shame on you Apple.

    Fire Hazard. Burnt cable.

    • Written by from Pasadena

    The part where the thin cable meets the adaptor starting heating up, turning yellow-ish, then split, frayed, and how it's dangling hopelessly. This is obviously an engineering defect, but I guess Apple doesn't care. Disappointing. I'm going to go get some ice cream and be happy again.

    Fed up.

    • Written by from Thornhill

    As much as I love my macbook I have gone through 6 chargers in the past 4 years. One of the chargers was returned within 4 months and within those months I didn't use it all. My first charger was torn up after about a year but every charger after that just stopped working. The only way to get it to work is to move the cord around until the green light turns on. This seems to be an ongoing thing. Apple should really fix this issue
