    Terrible Product - expensive to replace

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I have never seen a power source fall apart so quickly. Considering the replacement cost, it should last for the life of the laptop.

    CHEAP. WORTHLESS.

    • Written by from Brighton

    How has Apple continued to manufacture such a cheap product despite all of the terrible reviews? I've been an Apple customer for a decade, and this charger just BLOWS. broke after minimal use. had to pay for a brand new one.

    Complete Crapp

    • Written by from Catonsville

    This will be the last Macbook I ever buy. This charger is unusable and the cord has frayed within one year. It constantly falls out of the magnetic connector and the cord is of poor quality. Good thing Apple only charges $75 and forces you to replace the entire adapter rather than just the cord that attaches to the computer. Utter garbage. Back to Windows!

    The most terrible design I've ever seen!

    • Written by from Royal Oak

    I gave this a one only because some rating is required. If I could give it a negative 10 I would. I was so excited to get my new 2013 Air but I wasn't aware that Apple had redesigned the power cord. I am so seriously disappointed with this design, I wish my old one had more memory because I think I would return the 2013 Air just based on this.

    Why would Apple take such a brilliant design and replace it with this eyesore that doesn't even stay in when you actually try to work with it on your lap! "Lap top"... Hello?

    And the folks that are saying they love theirs DO NOT have the new design! I love the old design too!

    Apple? Anyone out there listening? Apparently not since they didn't change it for the 2013 after so many complained after the 2012! This makes using the Air such a disappointment. Ugh!

    Worst product apple makes

    • Written by from Huntsville

    No one expects to have to buy a new power adapter for your computer.....if you are using your mac book as a portable computer then expect to have to buy a new adapter at $75+. Worst product I have come across with the Apple logo on it. But really what are your choices??

    TERRIBLE design -- PLEASE REPLACE ...!

    • Written by from Miami

    oddly comforting to know I am not alone ...
    came here looking for a replacement because the power adapter that came with my new MBA is a nightmare and for all the reasons so well articulated in the earlier reviews. it is so annoying not to be able to use the old adapter that came on my older MBA -- the one that was beautiful and worked so well. apparently, the power adapter itself is compatible ... only the connector design changed, presumably in a cheap and annoying move to increase sales of accessories. frustrating to be nickel/dime'd by Apple this way -- this small change was probably relatively inexpensive to effect (in hopes of smart returns) but is causing nothing but grief. heading to Apple Store today in hopes of finding someone who will resolve the problem.

    Wears out very fast for the price

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    The end where it attaches to the computer wore out in no time and is now bare wire since my wife didn't want to spend another $75 for a new one. These should be much more durable. Come on!

    WHAT WERE YOU THINKING, APPLE?

    • Written by from New York

    I didn't think it was possible, but the power adapter for the MacBook Air is worse than the adapter for the MacBook Pro. Adding insult to injury, the battery life on the MacBook is so short, you're constantly using the adapter, and the smaller magnetic connector constantly disconnects. It's a badly designed product that should be recalled!

    Please redesign!

    • Written by from Fleetwood

    Poor design and poor quality. 3rd charger ordered for MacBook Air. Cord that attaches to computer is way too thin and wires break too easily. Then you can't purchase just that half of the charger, you must buy both halves of the cord at $79.00. I love Apple, but this is a terrible product that costs too much for how poorly it is made! Really deserves zero stars.

    Don't Breathe...

    • Written by from Gilbert

    The charger itself does what it suppose to do... as long as you can keep it from falling off. With the old MagSafe I could plug in my MBP move around as much as I wanted no problem. This one, if you breathe on it, it falls out. Very, very annoying. Apple really needs to use a stronger magnet.

    Broke After 2 Months, Terrible

    • Written by from Rio Rancho

    In the past, I've had a MagSafe 1 charger that survived my cats chewing on it, switching ports, etc. because I didn't know how to handle it. Now, I have a MagSafe 2 charger for my MacBook Air 11-inch circa late 2013, and I put it away after using it immediately so no cats bite it and nothing hurts it. I'm extremely careful and use it as lightly as possible yet when I bought a new one (I've already gone through 3 of these chargers since December of 2013!) it broke after 2 months of said light use. This is a terrible product and had I known how much money I would spend on chargers for my Macbook Air, I wouldn't have bought it.

    Poor quality

    • Written by from Leiden

    This adapter is terrible! Got broken in two parts even though I was really really careful with it. Not to mention that it would fall out of the laptop every 15 seconds. Terrible! I so much regret buying a mac book.

    Worst Charger

    A step backwards

    • Written by from SAN JOSE

    The previous connecter was sleek and didn't get in the way. Why would apple go back to the protruding style? The wire sticks out, looks messy, comes off at the slightest provocation. Please get the older style connector back.

    Terribly designed cord.

    • Written by from Joensuu

    I've had my MacBook Air for 14 months now. I love my MacBook, it's so superior in design. Almost everything is VERY well designed, better than "industry standard" so far.

    And then there's this terribly designed power adapter. The cord of this Power Adapter broke while using it correctly, wrapping it on the holders on the side. The cord was worn out. The cord didn't last it's intended usage for more than 14 months. This is unbelievable, when you realise this is an Apple product, where INTENDED usage should be very well designed.

    Now my earlier apple-fanboyism has died. Completely. Now when I HAVE to buy new adapter with very same faulty design to keep on using my (otherwise very good) MacBook Air. I'm really, really not-looking-forward-to-this, because I know even my new cord WILL break, as the design is faulty. The cord will break every time, when there's the angle.

    And what has industry done with cords that need to be need to be bend over an angle? Every other cord, every reasonable priced earphones, basically every other company has used a design that prevents cords from turning too much and wearing out. Not Apple, no. Every cord, even my 20 euros speakers have it, the thicker part in the cord that prevents the cord turning too much. My kitchen equipment power cords have it. No matter how UNINTENDED will you turn, the cord will last. But not this cord. This cord doesn't last it's INTENDED use, because the cord has to be turned to too sharp angle touching the shard edge of the cord itself!! Basicall the cord cuts itself and wears off. While breaking (and I guarantee you, it will break), this cord short circuiting may cause electrical problems to your MacBook Air and might indeed break your MacBook Air.

    In summary: this is an overpriced, faulty product. However, if you need this Power Adapter, you are going to have to use it. I'd suggest buying 2-3 at once, as you will need more than one. Alternatively, you might want to add some twisting-turning-protection-stuff there on the problem area in the thinner cord (next to the adapter itself) to prevent the cord from breaking.

    Hate the MagSafe 2

    • Written by from Mandeville

    This is by far the worst laptop charger I've owned. When its charging the slightest flinch and the cord is out. The only thing is that you can't pull it straight out but allow it to turn in any angle even a little and its out.

    I hate this charger I hope they make a new design for the MacBooks with this charger so i can buy something better.

    Tiny but wire split way too soon with no reason

    • Written by from NASHUA

    This was great until I had it for a few months. It gets kinks way too easily and is not splitting at a place not of particularly high stress. I'm quite cautious with this cord as I've had to pay to replace one in the past (and the cost is really lame).

    I pay thousands for superior products, please start providing them again. We all know you have the margin.
