    Works like it should

    • Written by from markham

    The power adapter has worked fine for me, I've had the power adapter for 3 years and I'm always carrying it around. I've never felt that i need to replace it because its built pretty well.

    burnt through

    • Written by from Plainsboro

    i've bought two of these, and they seem to have a lifespan of a little over a year. My first one stopped working literally as I was finishing my college apps around Christmastime, which was a nightmare, and my second one burnt through yesterday.

    I am a big fan of my Macbook, but I HATE the charger. I have gone through 4 chargers in the last 8 years with the same computer. All of them outlasted the 1 year warranty and then just mysteriously stopped working. I have lived in different dorms, houses, and apartments in this time, so it does not correlate to a problem with my power source. I try my best to be SO gentle with the charger. Unless Apple can come up with a better charger, I am considering not buying another Macbook.

    Poor design. Poor Quality. Costs a fortune to Replace! Come on Apple!

    • Written by from Wembley

    I had the magsafe for my MacBook air. It's a really bad design with poor quality build. After a year, ie outside warranty, it broke. I'm not happy. It costs 65 to replace. The product is not fit for purpose. I've never had a Sony, Acer or Toshiba charger cable effectively fracture from normal use (I was ultra cautious with this flimsy poor quality cable and it still broke).

    Apple surely know of the problem but they don't care, having a patent on the item they can get us mugs to pay £65 for a replacement of a product that is not fit for purpose. Not happy customer. Get is sorted Apple this really is unfair.

    I've had to replace this adapter 3 times. The price of this item is too high for the poor quality. I would give zero stars if possible. The fact that I am having to replace this item again, on top of the mavericks update being a joke, has left me very dissatisfied with Apple.

    I would give this zero stars if I could

    • Written by from Medford

    Once again, I have to go out and buy a new Power adapter for my MacBook Pro. They are outrageously expensive and live just long enough to bypass the warranty. I am souring on Apple after many, many years and many, many, many thousands of dollars. I can't yet bring myself to go PC, but I can see it coming up. Gotta go. Off to the Apple store to buy yet another awful power adapter.

    Absolute garbage!

    • Written by from Lyn

    Have had to replace the charger twice in less then a year. The wire covering keeps splitting at the connector and the box no matter how careful you are with it. The last one overheated and nearly caused a fire. I love my Mac and now it's nothing more then a very expensive paperweight, since I can't afford to keep spending the ridiculous $80 to replace the charger every few months.

    Lol Apple chargers are a joke!

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I have really tried sooo hard to make this charger last, as its the second one Ive had to buy. Even with all my carefulness, the charger is still broken. Let me not even mention my iPhones chargers since Ive been through 4 of them already. Apple, for a company who claims to be innovative, you sure STRUGGLE at making "innovative" chargers.

    Shoddy design

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I've had to replace this product THREE times in the four years that I've owned my MacBook. This is ridiculous, and really adding up at $80 a pop. Apple needs to design a higher quality product. I'd give it 0 stars if I could.

    Still Charging

    I have had the same power adapter for my Macbook for four years, and have never had a problem. My Macbook has been to China, Guatemala, and a Semester at Sea voyage without a single issue.

    Not durable at all!

    • Written by from Woking

    As if the laptop battery wasn't bad enough, the charger doesn't seem to hold together no matter how much you take care of it! The wire near the block comes off, leaving the insulating wire beneath exposed, until it becomes temperamental, and finally doesn't work!

    Now I have to buy another for god knows how much money, until that one breaks in a years time.

    Pathetic Charger

    • Written by from HOLDEN

    The only thing good about this charger is the way it looks and the fact that the magnet always sticks. Other than that, the thing is completely USELESS. I am currently on my third charger and I have only had my MacBook Pro for two years. I treated all of them with care, since I know how unnecessarily expensive they are, but that didn't even seem to help. I find this whole fiasco completely inexcusable and wish Apple would step up their game. I am currently in college and do not have the funds to just go out to an Apple Store and buy a new charger. This is a serious problem that Apple needs to fix ASAP!

    Am I really paying $80 for this?

    I can not believe that, after reading all the other negative reviews, I am paying $80 for a new charger. But what other choice do I have? Apple, I want to support you, but this seems unfair.

    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.

    College kids need more durability

    • Written by from South Bend

    1st charger lasted about 4 months when I first bought the MacPro. The second one lasted well, about 3 years. But, now I am on the third... and it barely lasted 3 months. It seems as the years go buy the quality deteriorates. A big hunk of your buyers are college students. And we are going to have the charger any and everywhere. That's life, Apple. And... as with most college kids, including myself. I'm sorry, but I am leaving you for eBay.

    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.
