    Compact and light weight

    • Written by from Anchorage

    The 45W MagSafe 2 adapter was included with my new Macbook Air notebook PC. Definitely a huge improvement over the brick which accompanied my former brand X Windows notebook. The powerful attachment magnet holds the charge cord firmly in place. No complaint. The flip out ears used to store the charge cord function well but durability remains to be seen. Deduct a star because the AC power cord seems much to brawny and unwieldy for the task at hand. The addition of a USB charge port could be very useful at times for charging cell phones and the like.

    Mine works fine

    • Written by from Sebastopol

    I am a little confused by the bad reviews. Mine doesn't fall out, works fine, and charges quickly. OK, I do find that the price is ridiculous, now that I'm ordering a second charger to keep at work, hence only 4 stars. But I have had no problems with the one that came with my laptop.

    Must have made Changes

    • Written by from Jefferson City

    I just received my new Mac Book Air 13 inch yesterday, August 22, 2013. I decided I need to buy another charger to keep with me on the road. I started reading the reviews here and though, what the heck? It seems Apple may have heard the complaints and I have not seen a recent review so thought I would add one from a current stock item. While I do agree that I like the L shaped version that comes with my 3 year old Pro, there certainly is no shortage of "Magnetism" with the straight connector type that came with this Air. In fact, it takes some strength to get it disconnected. So either I was luck or they have fixed the issue of falling out anyway!

    Sturdy, but detaches too easily

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    A lot of people say that their chargers have broke, but that certainly hasn't been my experience. I have two MagSafe 2 devices: Mid 2013 MacBook Air and Late 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display, and both are quite sturdy. I would give it five stars except for the fact that, as others have pointed out, it doesn't take much for the charger to come detached, even just picking it up sometimes... if you're gentle enough it's OK, but it's definitely not as robust as the original MagSafe.

    I like my Power adapter

    • Written by from Gaspereau

    I sometimes wonder why people have such bad reviews on apple products. I have had the same power adapter for 3 years without any issues. I feel that sometimes people take the products through abused use and think that they should survive. Perhaps that's true if its just normal wear and tear. Could it be better? Sure...but as far as i am concerned, mine has worked well for many years. It finally gave through and it needed to be replaced. But nothing lasts forever!

    Not bad

    • Written by from PASADENA

    I certainly can understand and sympathise with the negative reviews. So far, however, I have had no problems with mine and its about 8 months old. Very glad for the magnetic adaptation, as some accidents could've gone horribly wrong for the laptop were it not for this feature. The only complaint is the quality of the wire: when winding it up, you can feel the wires inside of the wire jacket twisting within the jacket. I imagine someday one of them will break and necessitate a new adaptor. The only other complaint is the price: I'd like to get a second one for work. Then again, it's Apple; I should expect to pay a premium. :)

    Well...

    • Written by from Wiggins

    It really isn't as bad as people point out...My charger has now recently broken and this my 3rd year of owning it. The only reason why it is broke is because of the protective cover around the wires. It is very thin and could be easily torn. If you take care of your products it should last a lot longer..My charger didn't fall out as often as the other reviews.
