  • Overview

    The 85 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adapter has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pro.

      Finally a great charger!

      I had the old macbook pro (2009) that came with the old charger. I've never had problems with the charger at all other then if I were to use it on my lap then I had the old macbook pro (2009) that came with the old charger. I've never had problems with the charger at all other then if I were to use it on my lap then the charger would be disconnected from the computer. With this charger that is no longer the case. I now have the new macbook pro and it came with the new charger and there isn't anything bad i can say about it so far. If you're looking for a charger that will work with the macbook and macbook pro this is the best choice. Somehow the charger can regulate down the amount of charge it's putting through to the computer so it's able to be used for both models. The overall look of this charger is pretty amazing. Before having a cheap looking white plug going into a all aluminum macbook looked stupid. With the new aluminum magsafe plug it looks a lot better when plugged in. Overall i think this is a great upgrade for anyone looking for a new charger and for anyone who has had problems with the old model.

      Stop moaning & speak to Apple

      I have had a MacBook Pro for 3 years. My MagSafe Power Adapter has just failed after being used every day. I took it into the Apple Store and asked them to test I have had a MacBook Pro for 3 years. My MagSafe Power Adapter has just failed after being used every day. I took it into the Apple Store and asked them to test it and they confirmed it needed replacing so they gave me a new one! Why do so many Reviewers criticise products that by their very nature can go wrong sooner than they should, without telling Apple about the problem first. You talk about having to spend £60 repeatedly to replace these adapters. Firstly how well do you look after your equipment? Secondly why just buy another one and moan about having to do so without giving Apple the opportunity to put it right? I have never received anything but exceptional service from Apple. Yes things can go wrong but that is what the warranty and AppleCare is there for. Buy it and use it. Also this new style adapter DOES fit an older MacBook Pro without any problems at all.

      Ridiculously Expensive Rubbish!

      I love using my MBP and it has been a real workhorse but I'm now on my 3rd power supply and it's getting expensive! The original failed due to an unseen 'kink'. I love using my MBP and it has been a real workhorse but I'm now on my 3rd power supply and it's getting expensive! The original failed due to an unseen 'kink'. The second simply went 'bang' after only 2 years of service and then went dead. So I've spent $270 on power supplies now & I'm not happy!! I use plenty of other devices in my house and have NEVER had an issue with any other transformers...oh, except for an iPad 10w Adapter (which also bit the dust after about 12 months).

      Poor build quality and materials

      The cord begins to fall apart right after the strain relief, probably from all of the straining.

Would expect better quality from Apple, or at least a replacement plan for a faulty design. Disappointed i'm going to be purchasing one of these because i NEED to, got me good this time.
