    JUNK ....TOTAL.....JUNK

    I have purchased 3 power cords in 2 years for my 2012 macbook air.
    2 new power cords in 3 years for my 2009 macbook.
    2 new power cords for my 4s in 1 year
    3 new power cords for my daughters 5
    3 new power cords for my sons ipod 5th gen
    1 new power cord for my wifes ipad 3rd gen
    Granted , maybe the kids are rough on cords, but D....

    To apples defense, they have replaced 3 cords that were under warranty.

    But i paid for 9 other cords out of pocket.

    Do apple make these?

    Last one lasted a couple of years and only after putting up with jiggling the connection and electrical tape repairs. My latest one is also falling apart at a rapid rate.

    These simply do not have the durability expected from apple products.

    Poor Charger

    I am extremely upset. I bought my mac book pro in January of 2011 and have bought two chargers thus far and am currently in class and have realized my charger is NOT working. After looking closely I see it is because of the internal wires. I am quite familiar with this situation since it has happened to me twice in the past. This now means I will have to buy ANOTHER charger meaning I will have bought three chargers in the past thee years. So pretty much I will have bought a charger every year. I find it interesting that the side of the charger that you are able to attach and detach cord has a larger diameter compared to the side you attach to the outlet. If so many people are complaining Apple why can you not fix this problem, why can you not make both sides of the charger the same diameter? Are you purposely designing the chargers this way so we have not choice, but to buy more. I love my Mac, but I will say I never had this problem with my PC.

    Buy Two at a Time

    I love Mac. I love my Macbook. But could Apple PLEASE come out with a power adapter that won't twist and break so easily? I'm going on my third adapter in two years. The second I was a lot more careful about not twisting it or putting it an awkward position or angle, but alas, it didn't do a thing to help me. Great laptop, terrible power adapter.

    Just purchased my 3rd charger for my MacBook

    I love apple. I own an imac, macbook, iphone, ipad, and an ipod. However, simply stated, this charger is terrible. I am on my third charger for the same computer. Despite thousands of complaints on numerous online forums, apple customer service will not acknowledge the issue, and therefore has refused to provide me with a free replacement. Own the issue apple! Offer at least one free lifetime replacement. For something as simple as a power cord (very much a context item) it is a shame that you will no doubt loose some of your core customers.

    Faulty design

    I bought my mac book pro in 2010 ( first ever mac) and I now have to buy my third power cord. I transport my mac back and forth to school everyday, this means wrapping the cord in the morning then unwrapping and then again at night when I go home. so twice a day 7 days a week. I stopped using the included prongs to wrap it as it was too tight and I could see the wires twisting inside this was before the first one broke "T" style at the computer and the adapter box. The one that broke just now broke at the box on the computer side and the entire life of this cord I would loosely coil the two cords together and put in my bag. The high cost and the multiple breaks is unacceptable. I just started grad school and was planning on getting a new mac as this one no longer keeps up with the demands of Architecture school. Some of the needed programs do not work with a mac but I was going to try powering through with bootcamp but this may be the reason I change my mind as Im still a few months out from upgrading and now Im having to buy a new cord before hand. I was a PC guy before I may be again.

    Lasted just long enough to not be under warranty

    This thing lasted just long enough to no longer be covered by the one year warranty. I took it to an apple store and was told I had to buy a brand new one. A charger that lasts one year? Jeez.

    pls make better cord

    my first one lasted 3 years but as others have mentioned its the cord that doesn't last. and it's so expensive. Apple shld make better cords. iPhone usb cords don't even last a year. at least with the USB cord i can get cheaper replacement but not Mac charger.

    Ridiculously over Priced and Faulty (Strain Relief)

    The strain relief epidemic has once again got my Charger it is the most useless product to ever come out from apple, I was not rough with my charger looking after it because of the problems my friends have had with there's it seems like a common problem reading some of the forums online.
    To buy a new one is way to expensive for something that is a design failure.
    Apple lift Your game and Lower the price :(

    The Worst

    I love Apple. For about 4 years, I've been using all their products (iPod Touch, Macbook Pro, iPhone) and I don't plan to stop. About 2 years after buying my Macbook Pro, I bought a second charger because I assumed was my fault. I bought a THIRD charger less than 3 months later to my complete surprise. That one managed to last me until now, where I will have to buy a fourth adapter over 2 years. Ridiculous. I love you Apple, please fix this NOW.

    Power Adapter for apple is the worse

    I would recommend that apple need to reconsider a better to invent a better power adapter that last for a life time.

    Wear out too easily

    I have had to replace this adapter once already, now I have to replace it again. It wears out too easily. It seems like Apple purposely engineered their cords cheep so you have to continually replace them. We have the same problems with our iPhone adapters. They wear out by the end that plugs into the device. I love the magnetic element, as well as the LED and portability. Unfortunately, anything that requires replacement on such a consistent basis deserves less than one star, which is what I'd give it if I could.

    Designed to Fail

    Piece of JUNK!! First power cord lasted an expected number of years, however the new power cord is poor quality and lasted less than a year!! Apple has obviously moved toward poor product quality....and what choice do you have but buy another one if you have a Mac product. Designed to fail is what I say, 'cause hey...why make a quality product when you know your consumer will have to buy it time and time again, especially at $75 bucks a pop!! Shame on you Apple.

    Mr.Charger

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter is good but nothing stay forever, I had this charger for about 1-2 years now maybe even more. I dislike this T-style on the little wire side, The first time I seen that I really had a bad feeling about that, that will cause me problems with the natural put away system.
    "Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage." from the apple web site.

    GET A PC

    Worthless product. The most these power cords last are 1 year (If your really lucky and never take it anywhere. I am on my 5th power cord for my 3 year old mac. For my multiple PC's that I have owned... I have never had to buy more then the one that it comes with. Never buying a Mac again because of these money hungry worthless products. GET A PC.

    works fine

    So I have had my charger for about 1 and a half years. It is a little scuffed up, but it works fine. If people would take care of their things they might not break as easily.

    Extremely Badly Constructed

    My L plug has had the rubber casing decay on my chord after only a few years of use. I expect far better when I pay the exorbitant amounts that apple demands, for what should be exceptional products. I am very disappointed, particularly as to replace what is the fault of apple is so horrendously expensive.

    I am so annoyed to be spending so much money on something that I know will break. This will be my third one!

    Apple - Why haven't you fixed the issues with these?

    There are so many one stars on this product, and all for the same reason! Charger doesn't last and gets extremely hot and is ridiculously expensive (esp. given all the complaints). These chargers have a life span of months to a year, both my partner and I have had to replace chargers and the newest ones we have, after only about 8 months, are crapping out on us. The rubber is just falling apart and the wires underneath are fraying out, they make weird sounds when connected, you have to move them to make sure they even work, plus they get extremely hot - and these were treated delicately after so many failures before. It seems like Apple is taking advantage of us! Why haven't these been changed and where is the customer service? This is pretty appalling.
