    Brutal.

    Trying to charge my new 15" retina display all day and it's still at 50%. Why? Because the charger keeps popping out and I don't notice. It doesn't even sit in the spot. The magnet is so week it starts slipping off as soon as you try to attach it. Ridiculous. If I could rate no stars I would.

    cheap

    Like other recent apple chargers this one wears very quickly. I haven't had it for a year (as the computer and thus charger hasn't been around too long) and it's already wearing down. Some of the wires on the inside are now exposed and I'm afraid that I'll have to buy a new one soon. Another problem is that apple prices their chargers so high. There is no way the charger should be priced at 80$.

    L Shaped charger doesnt last!

    Im in a family of apple all mac book pros. the t shape lasts, and l made it two years, of very gentle handling and it already has a short right where the wire connects to the L. I wish some one would come out with a charger that would last and take a beating like the product its self, you think 2 grand would give you quality. especially for an $80 piece that is just semi essential.

    Does what it's supposed to do.

    I don't quite understand all the complaining. I mean, yes, the connector unplugs easily, and maybe the build quality has been better in my iPod USB Power Adapter some years ago... but the design is fine, the unit is silent, and yes, you can carry your computer around without worrying that it may disconnect.
    Except, well, except you trip over it. Of course.
    I like everything about the charger.

    Love it.

    The magnet is strong enough it never falls out but connects and disconnect easily. It also charges my Mac book very fast.

    Needs a new design.

    I have had 3 chargers like this one now and all have broken from the little wire that goes into the box part of the charger. Being that Apple is one of the most expensive and top producers for gadgets to get online you think they would make a better quality charger where the wire is more sturdy and holds up longer. I am very disappointed at the fact that this is the third charger I have bought and it keeps breaking in the same spot. I am very unhappy with it and the price to get a new one is absolutely ridiculous when I know that it will happen again. Either one make the tiny cord as durable as the thicker cord on the other end of the charger or make this charger cheaper because this is ridiculous that no matter what this faulty charger is going to keep breaking and I will have to get a new one at the high price of $80.

    Terrible quality.

    I bought it less than 6 months. Sometimes can not be recharged.
    Which now can not be recharged.

    My company has more than 10 MBP Pro. Power Adaptor not had a problem yet. It is a very durable product.

    I have a charger with the Iphone 4s 8 lines gradually gradually lose me.

    1-2 years ago I bought an Apple product has no quality at all.
    Previously, Apple products are very high quality.

    Works Great!

    I don't understand what folks are talking about regarding the magnet being too weak. Mine stays put quite perfectly and requires a pretty significant sideways twist to dislodge. Are people running down the street with these things? I am regularly on my MBP Pro Retina 15" with this charger in place up to 13 hours a day on my electrical engineering job. I've NEVER had the MagSafe dislodge unintentionally. The cables are also long enough to handle every situation I've encountered. Excellent product.

    Horrible

    I love my macbook, but absolutely HATE this new magsafe adapter. It constantly pops out whenever the laptop is moved and it sticks out way too far. The older generation one was perfect. Hopefully they move back to the older generation one next year.

    NOT GOOD.

    This charger gets extremely hot and the cable is very weak. Not a good design at all had to buy another one. I hope apple refund my money on the product.

    Magnet is too weak

    I much prefer the older MagSafe power cord. The one that came with my new MBPr pops out far too easily. I regularly find my battery almost depleted because the cord came out without my knowing.

    Loose connector, cable frays

    The new MagSafe makes a much looser connection and is easily bumped out if you're not using it on a desk, or move your laptop around at all. More concerning though is that within 6 months it has frayed dangerously at the brick-end. Very poor.

    NOT HAPPY JAN!

    I've had my MBP exactly 24 hours and in that time, I've accidentally tripped over the charger cord over ten times, causing it to fall out. As I paid over $3000 AUD, I expected that it would at least, stay connected!

    No problems here

    Not sure whats going on with the rest, but my MBP early 2013 model, the magnet is super strong. Its almost too hard to pull out. (late design change maybe?)

    For every one wanting the old "L" shaped adaptor, just get the other 85w version with a mag 2 - mag adaptor. I fail to see how the "t" shape is that big of a problem. But hey, to each their own.

    Worst Charger Ever

    As many reviewers have mentioned, the magnet connection of this charger is absolutely despicable. After forking out $2.5k for a laptop, you expect the charger to at least stay plugged without falling out. A change needs to be made back to the L-Shaped connectors, as soon as possible. I currently have to significantly alter how I use my laptop, in an attempt to sit such that my charger will stay plugged in for more than ten seconds at a time. The only redeeming factor of this charger is that it charges so fast I don't have to use it often. If it took as long to charge as the older models, I don't think I could stand using this laptop at all.

    PLEASE MAKE AN ALTERNATIVE CHARGER SIMILAR TO THE LAST MAGSAFE

    Its amazing how happy I am with everything about my new Retina 15", yet how disappointed I am with the charger. It is so inferior to the previous version, it boggles me why you would feel comfortable including this with your new product. It puts SO many limitations on the usage of my macbook pro. Without a full charge, the computer is almost useless in bed or on the couch. In some ways, it is impossible to position the computer and charge at the same time. In others ways, the charger simply wont stay in unless I perfectly still and keep an eye on it at all times. I had NONE of these issues with the previous magsafe charger. PLEASE offer a version similar to that one for the Retina macbook pros.

    HORRIBLE

    Apple, I beg you to please make a new L shaped MagSafe 2 with a better magnet. I use my rMBP exclusively on the couch and this new T shaped cord falls out constantly. I hate it. The power cord is ruining my experience with an otherwise perfect computer.

    magnet not strong enough

    the charger pops out at the slightest touch. i'm home rehabbing from surgery and stuck in bed and the charger that was once a little annoying is now extremely annoying. in addition to the weak magnet, you can't put the computer on its left side without losing the charger. please make it stronger or have the L as an option
