  • Overview

    The 45-Watt MagSafe Power Adapter for MacBook Air 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; 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 cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Redesigned specifically for MacBook Air, the adapter is the perfect traveling companion. It has a clever design which 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 only with MacBook Air with MagSafe Power Port.

I am getting another so that I can keep one at home and keep the other in my brief case so that I don't leave home without a charger.

      Great

      This power adapter is far superior to any other. Really works great. I love the indicator light and the magnet. Stays attached great but comes undone if pulled This power adapter is far superior to any other. Really works great. I love the indicator light and the magnet. Stays attached great but comes undone if pulled on hard enough just like it should. I have owned for over a year and still looks brand new. Overall a great product!

      Shame on you Apple

      I would like to meet the person who designed and approved this cord and beat them with it. My MacBook Air (13 inch - Mid 2011) is now on it's 4th cord. The co I would like to meet the person who designed and approved this cord and beat them with it. My MacBook Air (13 inch - Mid 2011) is now on it's 4th cord. The computer lives on my desk and is taken to the office once per week. The rubber on the cord just falls apart and then becomes a serious safety hazard. Another product designed to fail so the customer is continually spending. Absolute joke.

      say something, I'm giving up on you...

      Apple, I have loved you since the 80's.

You've gone through your growing pains and we've lived with warts and pimples before but I feel like the passion for quality is being lost. Magsafe was a great idea but the implementation on the air is just terrible. It's so frustrating that this power connector falls off so easily. While other Magsafe connectors work well (i.e. my 17" Macbook Pro with barrel style connector) this one is poorly designed and falls off constantly. This is the first negative review I've ever given of an Apple product but It's just the beginning of many recent frustrations with Apple products. As the song says, "say something, I'm giving up on you."
