    Terrible quality & grossly overpriced

    I've already gone through 2 of these power adapters. It's far below the quality I'm used to from Apple and almost 1/10 of the price of a complete MacBook.

    This charger is HORRIBLE

    I received my laptop as a gift around a year ago, it was November 25, 2010 when I got it. A few months later my first charger went and just randomly stopped working. I brought my laptop and charger to an Apple store the employees were helpful, they gave my a new charger realizing that mine just stopped working. Now this is my second charger and it's been acting weird the last few days. It was only working if my charger was in a certain spot, but no it isn't working yet again. I'm sick of this!! I have school work online and use my laptop EVERYNIGHT!!!! This is such an inconvenience because the closest Apple store is over an hour away from me and I can't just drive out there whenever I need to. Something NEEDS to be done about this ridiculous charger. Never again will I want a Mac.

    Piece of junk

    I don't understand why apple makes such awful macbook chargers and then expects us to pay $80 for another awful charger a few months later when the first one stops working. I just had my 3rd charger in the last year stop working on me, and I take very good care of my things. I can't afford to pay $250 a year in chargers alone, its a little bit ridiculous.
    Around the same couple months that my charger broke, 2 of my friends encountered the same problems with their chargers. Think you can either get these problems worked out or lower the price of the chargers, apple? Ridiculous..
    I wanted to give zero stars but it isn't possible.

    MagSafe - Failed again! Fix this now Apple!

    Firstly let me say that I love Apple products. I have had three iphones, I'm a registered iphone developer and my MacBook is one of the nicest things I own.
    After less than 18 months of use the original MagSafe that came with my MacBook failed. I loved my Apple products so much that I paid for a new one to get my machine working again.
    The new MagSafe was of the new design.
    After just one more year the new MagSafe has failed.
    I have used PCs for more than 20 years, generally they are much lower quality than the Macs. However, I have only ever had one power supply failure. MagSafe is a great design concept, but let down by poor execution.
    Apple, you need to fix this now.

    way too flimsy

    Cool design but doesn't last. Tip just fell right off the cord. Patented connector=apple charges whatever they want. Grab my ankles and dish out $80

    ROTTEN APPLE!!

    Absolutely horrendous...having SO much trouble with adapters at the moment...the new design is appauling. The material that the wire is now fashioned from is horrible and awkward and doesn't bend easily. My charger started to crack and tear and looked like a rat had been gnawing on it - i had used it entirely as instructed for a couple of months and then had to argue with the "genius" at the apple store for a replacement. THANK GOODNESS FOR EXTENDED WARRANTY!!!!!!!! ...but this will eventually run out - and then what apple??? I decided to buy a spare adapter so that i'd have a back up for when the inevitable happened *sigh*...THIS ONE STOPPED WORKING AFTER 24 HOURS!!!!!??? LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS APPLE... WE PAY ENOUGH!!! WE WANT BETTER QUALITY PRODUCTS!!!!!!!!

    Mac book charger

    what a joke this much to buy a charger for a laptop ? talk about feeling 'set up' . its bad enough i pay an ultra premium for a MacBook vs same power/storage/features in non-AAPL laptops but then when the charger falls apart , you pay massive premium to replace .

    its abuse of customers in ways like this that will take the shine off AAPL in long run . Even my kid who HAD TO HAVE an AAPL laptop shaking her head .

    and how about offering the removeable connection to the laptop part of the charger seperately since thats what fell apart in a year on mine .... rest of charger fine but now useless . Why make that part removeable if you can't buy seperately ?

    Wires coming apart!

    I'm in Bangkok and I've had to buy 2 MagSafe Adapters in the past 2 years. The wires come apart and this time I actually had sparks coming out. Also the other plug that came in the box is not compatable with Thailand outlets. If I want to use it I have to buy an apapter from Apple.
    When is Apple going to come out with a better design?

    My Charger melted...

    My charger melted. I used it for about a year and a half and then one day...the casing melted and the wires disconnected. I always noticed that the charger got very hot when I used it...and then one day...poof...dunzo.

    Poor design and build quality

    The power supply failed on me after only seven months of light use and as all other reviewers I got fobbed of by the Apple dealership.
    The replacement cost is much higher than an equivalent PC part.
    Having experienced Apple after sales and the poor design of the products, don't get me going on Lion OSX, I am happily returning to the PC world.
    Good riddance Apple
    Product not worth 1 star!! but you have to give at least one to be able to review the product - Rip Off.

    Great design - poor implementation

    I have owned my Macbook Pro for about 1.5 years and taken careful care of my adapter. Nonetheless, the connection at the L-connector as become loose and as a previous owner of dozens of other laptops I can say that I have never had a problem like this and have had some adapters for years.

    If these were reliable I would rate this a 4.5 stars, but I have never seen an adapter fail so quickly.

    WHAT A RIPOFF!

    I may never buy another Apple product -- you have the gall to make an obvious design error, and then charge people three or four times to replace the part at INFLATED prices. You should be sending us a new, improved cord for free; the part is defective, replace it. This charger/ MacBook duo has had maybe 100 hours of use before the charger crapped out.

    the worst thing ever!

    I bought my macbook-pro last year and i've already paid $94 on the extra charger. now it's broken again! and this is the only charger that i can buy, which means i have to pay 90 bucks again just for this stupid thing. I love apple computer but the chargers really make me feel so disappointed!!!

    Doesn't last long

    I've only had my macbook for 8 or 9 months, and I'm already having to replace the power cord. I had my last laptop, a Compaq, for 5 years, and only had to replace the cord once, towards the end of it's life.

    I'm not rough with it or anything, but it didn't last very long. Especially when a replacement costs $79! I love my macbook, it's very fast and I haven't had any problems with it yet, but the cord is terrible quality.

    60 W MagSafe Power Adapter

    The power adapter cord is flimsy near the magnetic plug. The cord should be sturdy. My cord caught fire and just so happen I was using my computer at the time. Could have been worst.
