      I keep losing it!

      This converter works as expected, but I have an older MacBook Pro in addition to a new retina and I use the same power adapter to charge both. When I want to ch This converter works as expected, but I have an older MacBook Pro in addition to a new retina and I use the same power adapter to charge both. When I want to charge the older MacBook I have to take the converter off, and it is so small I keep misplacing it. This converter should have a clip attached so that I can clip it to the power adapter cable when not in use.

      Please Don't Assume The Reviewers Are Wrong - This Is A Piece Of Junk.

      It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN this will fail. This is the worst piece of hardware to ever come out of Apple. I'm a die-hard fan and this is r It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN this will fail. This is the worst piece of hardware to ever come out of Apple. I'm a die-hard fan and this is ridiculous - these always fail after a few months of use. It's sad, but you're just going to have to shell out the cash for a Magsafe 2 power supply and junk your old Magsafe. This converter is a short term fix only. You've been warned.

Now I am recharging with original cable. very poor quality.

      Never got it to work.

      I would give it zero stars if I could. I'm using an 85w magsafe purchased less than a year ago, with the adapter that I purchased about 3 weeks ago. I got a n I would give it zero stars if I could. I'm using an 85w magsafe purchased less than a year ago, with the adapter that I purchased about 3 weeks ago. I got a new 15" macbook pro and didn't want to lug my charger from home to work and back every day. Found this, which looked like a perfect solution. Except it's never worked. Not even once. I've spent over an hour trying different things to get it to work, based on advice from message boards and from apple. The real pain is that it was like 10 bucks, and I threw the packaging away when I opened it. It's not worth my time to drive back to the store and spend 30 min-1 hour of my life getting that $10 back. I'm very irritated by this product, and by apple's shameless money-grab antics with new chargers for their laptops and phones.
