    Scared to buy a 2nd for work.

    • Written by from Coatesville

    I have the original 60W MagSafe 2 which came with my Retina 13" MBP I purchased Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2013. Unlike many reviews, I've had no issues with this charger. The magnet is strong, only pulling out when jerked. In fact, if you pull slow, you can actually pull the MBP across a table by the plug. It charges quickly, without getting hot, and the cable looks as new as the day I unpacked it. I used to wrap the cord on the wings, but no longer do so because that's too tight a circle for these tiny wires.

    Anyway, I would really like to get a second MagSafe 2 for my work office so I don't have to tote back and forth from home. But I'm trying to figure out if we're looking at two different batches here. Was I just one of the lucky few before Apple farmed this charger out to an incompetent contractor? A few bad reviews in the mix of mostly good, you can chalk up to a few folks who don't know how to use the product But this many Apple Heads can't be falling from the same tree. I'm leery of trying for a 2nd winner.

    If someone wants to start a database, we could compare serial numbers and see if there's a connection between series. The number on mine when you unplug the wall prongs/extension cord is: C043485GPJGF288BV

    Where's the Love?

    • Written by from Chilliwack

    I've had my Macbook Air for nearly two years now and I'm still going strong with the original charger. I'm not entirely sure what's with all the negative reviews. When I owned PC's, I went through replacement chargers every three months or so, I know pretty much every way to destroy a charger, but I've met my match with this one. Yes from time to time if I sit cross legged with my laptop on my lap, my leg will knock the charger out of place, but when my nephew think's it's funny to push the brick of my charger off the table, I'm glad my laptop doesn't go down with it.

    I've had no problems with any of my adapters

    I see so many people complaining about the materials used and how quickly these things wear out. I would like to ask how you all treat your MagSafe2 power adapters? I've had mine for two years now with zero problems. I never wind my adapter around the flip-out plastic pieces on the adaptor, so I'm not putting undue stress on the cabling or connector. The only signs of wear I have with my adapters is the discoloring of the sheathing due to normal handling. I've also never had any problems with the connector coming lose from my notebook.

    Negative reviews

    • Written by from Coffeeville

    The amount of negative reviews on this charger is the reason i decided to write a review. The only issue I have with my charger coming unplugged unintentionally is if I sit with my laptop in my lap and my thigh pushes up on the charger plug, it unhooks pretty easily. But that is a very minor con to a genius break a way design. I've been using this laptop and charger for about 3 months and do not see any issues with it. The only reason I was looking at the charger on here was to see what the little flip out things on it is for. Apparently they're for wrapping the cord around, but I wouldn't suggest using them as they seem they would put stress on the connections.

    I really like this charger. It's quick, the cord is really long and the ability to disconnect the AC cord is awesome when traveling. I've had no problems with the new connector falling off unintentionally.

    Works greate for me!

    • Written by from Albany

    I've been using this with my MacBook Pro for about 6 months and it has performed perfectly. The magnet is strong enough to stay attached, weak enough to release without dragging my mac across the table the couple of times someone has tripped over it, and the cord boots seem to provide a lot better support than the adaptors for my previous MacBooks.

    I was surprised to see so many negative reviews! This power adapter is as good as it gets. It stays connected to the computer great (not a weak connection at all), and disconnects when tripped over or pulled on. It is even better than the original Magsafe. I really don't understand how anyone could have anything bad to say about it.

    These people must not have owned PC's in a long time

    This is an amazing power adapter. It does exactly what it is supposed to and I have never had any issues with the cord falling out without there being a reason. In fact this cord has already saved my laptop!! I have two kids and two dogs and this cord gives me peace of mind when I charge my laptop. One of the kids accidently got caught in the cord when my laptop was on the kitchen counter and the plug just popped right out with ease. The other result would have been my laptop falling three and a half feet off my counter on to very hard tile floor which I am sure one of the following would have happened; a broken screen, cracked or damaged the case, knocked something loose on the inside, or just completely ruined my laptop. I am finally a new apple customer and am so happy I have finally changed b/c my last two non-apple laptops I had to replace where the power cord connected to the laptop b/c they were ruined from being anchored so tightly and deeply into the laptop giving no room for play. This is an expensive fix as well not just pocket change and sometimes it isn't worth fixing just purchasing a new laptop. My fathers laptop which is non-apple has the same issue right now and you have to get the cord just right to use the power cord and even then it cuts out constantly. My girlfriend had the same issue with her non-apple laptop and ended up going apple which is also why I am now a life long apple customer. In the event that i have to purchase a new charger due to wear and tear, so be it. I understand the real cost of not having the magsafe 2 charger and it amounts to way more than 80 dollars and potentially the cost of a new laptop. Take the bad reviews with a grain of salt and do your research and make up your own mind. Think how many apple laptops are out there and how few bad reviews there actually are when you look at the big picture. Plus factor in the people who just enjoy complaining, don't take care of there equipment, and realize how good of a charging system it actually is compared to the alternative.
