    Best power cord ever.

    I love how the cord pops off and does not hurt my Mac one bit. Other computers you have to be careful not to pull cord the wrong way or PC will break but not with the one we have on the Macbook. Great job Apple, I miss Steve ��

    I don't see why everyones' upset

    I've had the same charger since buying my Macbook back in 2013 and I might have to buy a new one because after years of being run over (accidentally) by my chair its getting a little too wrapped in electrical tape to really be portable. I would like to know what everyones doing to have the cables break so quickly, as mine has been in and out of bags for years now. It has held up well and is still going strong.

    great charger

    I don't understand why so many people have left a bad review. This is the best laptop charger I have ever owned. The Magsafe plug is much easier to use that a standard dc plug and just pops off if accidentally kick the cable. Which I have done so many times already.

    Great design but must be handled correctly

    A lot of complaints here but I sincerely believe that those people are handling the charger incorrectly. The way to disconnect it from the computer is NOT TO PULL. Simply place your finger under the magnet where it connects to the computer and lift up, tilting the magnet away from the desk. This will easily and gently disconnect the power from the computer, not injure the cord (you don't even touch the cord with this technique), and the charger will be in perfect condition for a very long time.

    I have had the magsafe 2 charger and the macbook pro for quite a long time and I travel with it. The charger is in perfect condition because of the way I handle it.

    Good luck!!!

    No issues here

    Maybe the magnet on mine is better than most, but I have absolutely no issues with the cord disconnecting inadvertently like so many others. I actually have a little trouble disconnecting it without getting a good grip on the connector.

    Only time will tell if I have the cord issues that everyone else talks about, but the biggest factor in the cause of this that I can see is the built in cord management. Those little finger things don't have rounded edges and cause the cord to be kinked in an awkward way, so it puts a lot of stress on it. When I have to take mine somewhere, I do use this method for now, but I wrap it really loosely because of all the complaints I've read.

    As for price: I'm really not sure what the complaining is about. You spend over a grand on a laptop and are complaining about an $80 power adapter? I don't think it's all that bad compared to the $130 I had to spend to get an extra adapter for my Lenovo. On the other hand, I CAN see the problem with spending it over and over as many have mentioned in their reviews.

    For now, I give this a good review. I can assure you that if I have issues with it, I'll be back to edit this review.

    Excellent power adapter.

    This works just as it should. Easily connects and disconnects from laptop with a secure connection. It quickly charges MaBook pro and unlike a lot of reviews, my power adapter never overheats. It also is easy to wrap the cable up neatly for traveling.

    What's the problem?

    I can't imagine what people are doing with their chargers to have so much trouble. I've had mine for three years of moderate use with no issues at all. Maybe the cords are fraying because the flip out "fingers" for wrapping the cord put too much stress on it. I have always just wrapped the cord around my fingers and put a rubber band around it because that's the way it fits best in my case. I also find the magnet to be strong enough for normal use. The only time it has disconnected is when i have tripped over it, just as it is supposed to do.
    I have no complaints.

    Absolutely Fine!

    Many people have criticised this charger for numerous reasons. However it is perfectly fine! I love how it comes with the extension cord making it reach even further, also being able to wind the cord up makes storage simple. People say it falls out of the macbook too easily, are you trying to ride a bike while you charge?!? The magnet holding it in is strong enough that I can get up and move around without it falling out - unless you bend the cord away for the laptop then of course it will fall out! This charger is fantastic and does the job perfectly, treat it right and it will last you a long time.

    Ps. I have had mine for a year now and it gets used every day at university and at home.

    No Problems

    I am about to buy my third charger for my Macbook 13 - although I am sick of paying $80 for new chargers, it is not due to the charger being bad or falling out or not working. Our new puppy has chewed all of my chargers in half, including two iPhone chargers as well! Other than this crazy pup, I think the charger is fine and works perfectly for me. Matter of fact, my laptop charges so fast that it doesn't even need to be on that long. And even then, the battery lasts a couple days. All in all, I like the charger - I don't think the L shape or T shape really matters. People really shouldn't be upset about the charger being $80, it's not surprising at all.

    Where's the Love?

    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.

    Got my first ever Macbook at christmas and I just love the cable, the length is great for using it in bed and you can see immediately whether it is fully charged or not. The magnetic connection is genius, I have lost count of the number of times I have tripped over leads, a very safe aspect to it. I love it so much Im buying another one so I can leave one beside my bed as well as have one downstairs. Thank you Apple

    Scared to buy a 2nd for work.

    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

    Negative reviews

    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'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.

    Works greate for me!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
