It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina. The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it.

      Great way to extend the life of existing adapters

Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor! As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing.

      Third failure in two years

I suspect there are springs inside (to push the pins out to make contact) and they become weak over time. I keep my adapter mounted on the end of the mag safe cord all the time, even when it's not in use, so perhaps that is part of the story. NOTE: These come with a one year warranty.

      It Works and Its Cheap!

      Don't let these other reviews turn you away. This works great and it's amazing to me that it's an apple product and it only cost $10!! It is well worth the buy. Don't let these other reviews turn you away. This works great and it's amazing to me that it's an apple product and it only cost $10!! It is well worth the buy. I use it for my thunderbolt display to connect to my macbook. Had it for 6 months and use it almost everyday. Works like a charm.
