    Worse than bad.

    I genuinely can't believe that the charger has stopped working and it has probably been just under 2 years since I bought my macbook pro, it started wearing a turtle neck a month ago and I knew the end was near, and today the cable looked like it was burning as it changed colour! If other companies are able to create durable chargers (my old Sony laptop and the charger STILL WORKS!), I expected Apple to make better chargers, especially seeing as I've paid over twice the amount for my macbook. You guys probably do this on purpose so that customers are forced to buy another charger and spend money but this is a terrible thing to do. Now I have to spend extra money of a new charger UGH. I will no longer be purchasing Apple products in the future, I stopped with the phone a long time ago and now it's time to say bye to the MacBook.

    DC cord will certainly break

    Two MacBooks, two broken chargers. Right now, I feel electric current when I touch metal parts of the charger and also the aluminum body, even though I always carefully unplug and store so as not to put too much strain on the cable. I can't understand why they don't change the design of the clearly to weak cord.

    Short Life - Big Price Tag!

    I like one of the other people reviewing spent over £2000 on a MacBook Pro a few years ago. It has had very light use due to mainly working from my desktop Mac and this mainly for home or travel if needed.

    I have literally probably not even had this into charge 50 times and the adaptor has now gone and will not charge the laptop at all. Really dismal effort from Apple with the adaptors for most of their stuff. Annoying that your products let your customer down when they need them the most and in the end have to go spend £65 on a new adaptor that has had little use at all from a big price tag item.

    Cable rips easily at the power brick

    Title says it all. Every generation of this power adapter, the cable splinters and rips on the MBP side of the power brick. These cables should really be braided or of better quality for a $3k+ laptop.

    Falls Apart

    I seriously resent being made to shell out for a new charger every year. The rubber on the cable between laptop and power unit comes apart at both ends - both where it meets the laptop and where it meets the power unit. After that the metal shielding comes apart, after that you start worrying that your children are going to get electrocuted or the power cable will stop working.

    If you can't fix it, then at least don't gouge the customer on the cost of the replacement. Why not provide detachable cable so that only the part of the cable from power unit to laptop requires replacement? Why not put the customer first?

    Really surprised there hasn't been a lawsuit

    After weeks of shorting out my computer this charger finally sparked, burned me and burned out. Great part of it was that I was just starting a two week vacation in a remote location with no Apple retailers near by. Amazed this hasn't happened more or resulted in a lawsuit for Apple. Only been using this charger for a little under a year before the problems started but I do travel frequently. Will not be buying another apple laptop in the future.

    WORST charger ever used.

    I paid 2300$ for my laptop less than 2 years ago and it no longer charges my macbook. I have a macbook without magsafe from 5 years ago that still works today. This design is terrible because now I can only charge my macbook when its off??? I don't understand how Apple can get away with charging people so much money if their chargers can't last more than 2 years?

    Not very good

    I've had my mac for about 24 months now and ive had nothing but problems with the charger.

    It heats up to a temperature where I could fry an egg on it! After spending over £2000 on a Mac you'd think they would give you a better quality product.

    The MacBook is fine, its just let down by the PSU

    Terribly Shoddy Product

    Terrible product. Overheats within seconds to an unbearable temperature that has burned me a few times by accidentally touching it. Did they also make it out of catnip? My cat does not chew any cables, never has done. As soon as I got this adapter for my Mac, my cat has gone haywire trying to chew and bite it at absolutely any moment. Not only that, it plugs out instantly whenever touching it, again, overheats to unbearable temperatures, even at the end that plugs INTO the mac, and is incredibly weak. Such a terrible product.

    Disconnects

    this power adapter disconnects with even the SLIGHTEST movements of the laptop. VERY annoying! most people like to have their laptops on their laps, while they're using them; not really easy to do, what with the magsafe disconnecting if it's lightly touched. I spent good money on this laptop, so I expect it to not have dumb quirks, such as the one I've mentioned.

    Buying third charger in 4 years

    It's a laptop. Which means its portable. Which means I take it to work and bring it home every day. I am buying a third charger in four years. Apple says the charger is designed to be unplugged and wrapped every day. Seriously???? Maybe you should design it to be!

    A step back from magsafe 1

    I had both previous versions. The first one and the right angled one (that was great!). Mag safe 2 is terrible, It constantly disconnects, with a slightiest movement of the laptop. I cannot use my newest 15" MacBook Pro on my lap without constantly looking at the cable if it's still plugged in. Really distracting.. I wonder how it affects my battery life while it's charging (with orange light). I thought that Apple had a better quality control and design teams...

    Expensive and VERY delicate

    I have had my MBP for 3 years now and it has been great for college but I have had to replace my charger three times costing over $237. I wish they were more cost effective because to me, you shouldnt have to spend $237 over a three year span on power cables alone. nevermind the fact that I spent $1200 on the computer... Needless to say, it leaves me dissatisfied with the product.

    I wouldnt be mad if it wasnt so overpriced

    So I owned one for over a year now and the part where the cable leaves the adapter broke off. There's no way to fix it or replace it... And a new one goes for 90 euros at my nearest apple reseller!! This is ridiculous! This much for a product that's not even reliable in quality... I used to be a huge fan of apple products but lately all i'm facing is disappointment. Im not surprised magsafes are getting terrible reviews.

    most irritating product

    unplugs during regular use. magnet is not strong enough, couple that with poor design = continued frustration during use.

    Worthless Adapter

    This adapter worths no penny, whenever I do a tiny move it just fall off very quickly. it's becoming very annoying, since it lacks stability. Also, when you plug it in, you have to flip it few times until you see the lights on. I think apple needs to seriously reconsider finding a better replacement to this.

    Disappointed - nowhere near good enough

    Having recently upgraded my Macbook Pro to the new Macbook Pro Retina, I have been delighted with the computer. However, I was very disappointed with the charger. The design of the charger used to much better, with the old 'L' shape design the connection was much more secure and less likely to fall out whilst charging. With the new charger, I find even the slightest movement will cause the charger to disconnect. Not good enough for the amount you pay for a high quality computer!

    Atrocious Product

    This is one of the worst products I have ever had the misfortune of purchasing. I only purchase them because they keep breaking and malfunctioning. They fray and create a fire hazard (I woke up to my carpet burning one day because of one of these), and the magnet becomes so weak it cannot stay attached to the computer. I've had to buy three of these at $80. Absolutely no reason for such a bad product from a capable company. As much as I like Apple computers, I may be looking elsewhere for my next one because of this.
