  • Overview

    The 85 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 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pro.

      Finally a great charger!

      I had the old macbook pro (2009) that came with the old charger. I've never had problems with the charger at all other then if I were to use it on my lap then I had the old macbook pro (2009) that came with the old charger. I've never had problems with the charger at all other then if I were to use it on my lap then the charger would be disconnected from the computer. With this charger that is no longer the case. I now have the new macbook pro and it came with the new charger and there isn't anything bad i can say about it so far. If you're looking for a charger that will work with the macbook and macbook pro this is the best choice. Somehow the charger can regulate down the amount of charge it's putting through to the computer so it's able to be used for both models. The overall look of this charger is pretty amazing. Before having a cheap looking white plug going into a all aluminum macbook looked stupid. With the new aluminum magsafe plug it looks a lot better when plugged in. Overall i think this is a great upgrade for anyone looking for a new charger and for anyone who has had problems with the old model.

      Works for 2008 17-inch MacBook Pro

      This is a more clean cut power adapter than older versions. My old power adapter had the cable shielding that ran to the Mac pull away from the base. I bought This is a more clean cut power adapter than older versions. My old power adapter had the cable shielding that ran to the Mac pull away from the base. I bought a new one thinking it would be an easy replacement... It did not work until I got onto the support site and found a review of the power adapter by "LM." LM stated in an earlier review the following in order to get older MacBook Pros to work with this Power adapter: "okay, flip it over, take battery out .. hold power button in for 10 seconds.. then put battery back in.. then plug in new charger! i bought new charger for my old model and it worked once then crapped out. took it to an apple store with computer at hand and a young tech did this for me. old heads had no idea about that trick. it def. worked for me. seriously try it. thanks young king of prussia tech guy! " It definitely works!

      Great product

      Had a 4-month-old, old style power supply that failed after it frayed. I walk into an Apple Store with my old power supply expecting a fight over the quality of Had a 4-month-old, old style power supply that failed after it frayed. I walk into an Apple Store with my old power supply expecting a fight over the quality of the old product. Instead, the sales associate grabbed a new power supply, apologized for the problems with the old power supplies and sent me on my way with this new product free of charge. Not only is the actual cable much studier than the old model, but the mag-safe connector fits perfectly into my mid-2007 MBP. The adapter is much harder to accidentally knock out of the computer but still pulls away when the cable is tripped over by an person or pet, avoiding disaster when working close to a surface edge. After going through two of the old style adapters in less than three years, I'm happy that Apple finally took notice and greatly improved the product.

      awful product

      I agree with the other reviewers. We have had issues with power cables with multiple devices ranging from powerbook to ipads/iphones. the latest is this power I agree with the other reviewers. We have had issues with power cables with multiple devices ranging from powerbook to ipads/iphones. the latest is this power adapter for our powerbook. Bent from normal use and doesnt charge, at least it hasn't actually split open like the 6s cable. $80 bucks is an obnoxious price for such a poor quality product.

      One of the top 3 things I hate about apple

      Simply, why does this break? I've never had any other power cords break? My old Nintendo Entertainment system from 1986s power cord is still intact. Als Simply, why does this break? I've never had any other power cords break? My old Nintendo Entertainment system from 1986s power cord is still intact. Also, I bet if it broke, they'd replace it for me. But no, its our fault for being to rough with them. Further, my 2008 white macbook had the same problem. It is now 2016 and I just spent 100 USD on a new one and nothing has changed. Sorry, I guess I should've known that swinging the power cord at oncoming magpies isn't its intended use. But then why call it Magsafe?
