Product Information

  • The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    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.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

  • Power adaptors do not last

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past beca Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

    I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.

    I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power ad I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though.

    I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months.

    Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month!

    I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

  • New and Better than the Old MagSafe

    I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feel I own the white 13" 2008 Macbook, and to answer your questions (if any), yes, it works with it. As for the MagSafe itself, it feels differently built (for the better), it doesn't nearly get as hot as the old MagSafe did (incredibly this one stays very cool, even on extended periods of time, although that could be because it's new.) Lastly, the actual connector is pretty innovative, feels much sturdier and less prone to fire/breaking/separation issues. It also wraps around a better/more effective contour. All in all, for $79 compared to $99, and the benefits i've named, it's a much better buy than the previous MagSafe (still overpriced, apple)

    I've had my old power apapter since I've had the old MacBook (late 2008) and have not had a problem. The one I bought two years ag I've had my old power apapter since I've had the old MacBook (late 2008) and have not had a problem. The one I bought two years ago is now frayed, but this can be expected for a power-user. I see people complaining about apple this and apple that. Here's a tip. Don't put your adapter under a lot of strain. To complain about the fraying is ridiculous. It is a wire. All wires are susceptible to damage. Ever notice that your refrigerator's power cable points down? Yeah. That's to prevent damage by eliminating strain. Per gaps you should try that. Laptops are not made to sit in your lap, although the name says so. You must remember that it is a powerful computer that does a lot of work. The processor gets hot. If you don't allow it to ventilate, it's gonna mess up. That is basic electronic information.

    Everything I have bought from Apple has broken including this power adapter. Apple makes a good looking, functional product, but t Everything I have bought from Apple has broken including this power adapter. Apple makes a good looking, functional product, but thats where it stops. Apple needs to improve their quality….quickly. For the price people pay for the product, put some quality behind it and stand behind your product better than you do. I am very very disappointed in the quality of everything I have bought from you guys. MacBook Pro 17, MacBook Air, and 3 iPhones. Every single item has had problems that should NEVER happen. Shame on you Apple, I would figure out how to make amends with your customers before we write you off forever.

    I am now 'forced' to buy 4th one ....$79 a piece and won't last!! which other computer or laptop will need its user replace its po I am now 'forced' to buy 4th one ....$79 a piece and won't last!! which other computer or laptop will need its user replace its power adapter, and that to 4th one!!! come on...it looks good and feels good until the spaghetti style cable just breaks apart. it feels like my car which needs regular oil change, this one needs regular adapter change. This will work if you keep your laptop on a table and don't move..but then its called a laptop not desktop ! You can run ads joking about PCs but your laptop works only if it used as a desktop unless you wanted to spend more and more money on adapter...I can't throw my 'laptop' away yet and so no other choice but to give you another $79.
