    Terrible quality

    The cable just stopped working, very poor quality. Pretty expensive to replace it. In the past, there were no issues with the power adapter..

    Worst ever Magsafe 2

    What a pile of junk this connector is! It won't stay plugged in - if you look at it sideways it falls off... A who was the brilliant designer that came up with the "T" concept? Obviously this was never actually tested. So sad.

    Third time's a charm...

    Headed to the Apple store today to purchase my third charger for my two year old computer. The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter gets extremely hot. It doesn't matter if it's floating magically in the air, it still gets extremely hot. The cord that connects from the MagSafe to the computer is also fried. My first cord I was a little careless... plugging it in here and there, allowing the cords to fall freely. My second charger I was a lot more cautious with. Allowing it to be plugged into one plug. Sit in one space and lay a certain way, as to not bend, move, or even breathe in fear of splitting the cords. It didn't matter... my cord has split and needs to be replaced. So disappointing when spending nearly $3,000 on a laptop.

    C'mon Apple, this thing is junk!

    Less than a year old and my charger just died! And to everyone that says we're handling them wrong, this thing rarely leaves my desktop. So it was just sitting there most of that time with no handling at all.

    I Reinforced My New Adapter with Electrical Tape From Day 1, Still Broke

    I, along with anyone who has ever owned a Mac, bitterly hate forking over $100USD very 1.5 years to buy a terrible, sure to break Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter. If you just bought a Mac, congratulations you will soon hate your adapter too. Every time I get a new one, usually 2-3x before I'm ready to upgrade my computer (which I do every 2-3 years), I treat it incredibly gingerly, knowing that by massaging it with tender loving care every morning, noon and night, I can sometimes prolong the life of this horrible product by 3-6 months. I've tried not using the wings and coiling it loosely. I've tried reinforcing it with electrical tape at the two fail points (they're the same every time) from the moment I took it out of the box and it STILL broke. There's nothing to be done. Unless you leave it plugged in at your desk and never remove it, your adapter will need to be replaced in under 2 years. Apple, this is the absolute worst.

    Breaks in under one year

    I've had this charger for less than a year and stopped working. The quality is garbage.

    Garbage

    Apple should be ashamed of making such a horrible product which is absolutely throwaway. You will be lucky if it last a year.

    Recently purchased a 2015 MBP w/ Retina. Great computer, BAD MagSafe 2.

    Apple, please, please, please reconsider the design of the MagSafe 2. When you introduced the original "T" shaped design, customers complained and you reintroduced the same connector, but with an "L" shaped design that could wrap around the back of the computer or down the left side. For whatever reason, you reverted back to the "T" shape---a proven to be inferior design. Please revert back to the old L shape.

    As bad as everyone says

    If I could rate less than 1 star I would have. It is disgraceful that this continues to be included with the original apple products. I have had two previous macsbooks over the last 15 years and have NEVER had to replaced a charger or cord until purchasing (less than 90 days ago) a new macbook pro with the MagSafe2 - complete junk! Nothing has changed, not where or how I charge my computer the only difference is the equipment-junk! I have and will continue warn others to steer clear of this if you can-otherwise you will be replacing it. For the record I do not PULL on the cord - I know how to correctly disconnect the charger.

    Used with great care, but did not survive one year

    The thin part (the part with the magsafe) slowly breaks off at the adapter. The thick part is still in great shape though, so why did Apple choose to make this thin part so fragile? My Macbook is not even a year old and I always used the adapter with great care (though I do travel on a daily basis). If I need to do this every year, owning a Macbook becomes very expensive..

    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!!!

    2nd in 2 years

    Not durable at all

    Could give a 0-star if possible. Merely one year has passed and the end of the cord that connects to the power adaptor is done, worn out totally. I suggest those Apple engineers: 1. redesign this adaptor, instead of a whole "adaptor+cord" design, make it detachable with small parts (adaptor, cord with USB interface, etc.), the part that are easily worn out (e.g. the cord) should be replaced separately at its own cost; 2. please make its quality match its price.

    Would give 0 stars if I could.

    Apple needs to fire the engineer who designed this cord. This is my FOURTH TIME purchasing this freaking power cord in THREE YEARS because it keeps fraying at the weak points (at the brick and the connector). PLEASE do us all a favor and REDESIGN this charger.

    Not durable

    Why does the MagSafe Adapter cord have to be so cheap and flimsy? Even under normal use it is easily kinked and damaged. Why not make the entire cord thick and durable? Or at least offer a choice between the current lightweight, non durable cord or a heavyweight durable cord. I would rather have the extra bulk than have to replace the cord frequently. At least lower the price since apparently Apple thinks this is a disposable piece. I really think it will be worth a try to find a non apple replacement. Going to look on Amazon now.

    Even worse than the previous magsafe design!

    I bought a new macbook pro about 3 months ago. I was excited to see that the charger design was different but it didn't take more than 5 minutes to realize that the magsafe2 design is MUCH worse than the original magsafe design. For some reason, my wall outlets are always to the right when I need to use my MacBook Pro, and naturally, the charger plug on the macbook pro is on the lefthand side. The previous magsafe charger on my last macbook had a much slimmer design so it could lay flat against the side where it was plugged in. It wasn't the best design, but I'd take it over the magsafe2 any day! The magsafe2 on the other hand sticks straight out when you plug it in so unless you have your MacBook Pro positioned just right next to your wall outlet then there will be a good chance that the wires will bend and break. Oh, and if you have dogs at home like I do then you can forget about keeping it plugged in while you are working! My dog can walk by me and barely touch the cord and it falls out! Terrible design. I never thought I'd miss the old one so much... Apple, look at your reviews on this product and PLEASE fix this issue. I love your products! But I have a hard time believing that a company that invented something as innovative as the iPod can't create a better charger than this... I hate to complain and I never leave negative reviews, but something had to be said about this design. Please fix it.

    magnet and slim design good, price and easily broken is bad

    Magnetic function is awesome and a great a idea. it simply comes off when yanked at an angle up or down but can be dragged across the table by the strong magnet, so clearly its just angles. LOL.

    price is way too high and the wires need to be strong and method of wrapping around square power thing should be better.

    Frayed yet again...

    Sick and tired of spending another $80 on these horrible power adapters every two years because of fraying until they no longer work. Apparently there was a replacement offered for these a while back - someone should have told my local Apple store, because when I went two years ago no one mentioned that and I had to buy a new one, and now I'm about to have to go in again because this one is so frayed that it no longer works.
