Product Information

  • The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also 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 lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook 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 you 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 Pro with Retina display.

  • Magnet not Strong Enough

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T des I have had all versions of MagSafe. The Original T, The L, and now MagSafe 2 with my MBP Retina display. I am a fan of the T design but the magnet holding it in is way to weak. I don't know if it is because its smaller profile, but I can barely touch my laptop without the thing falling out. It is becoming extremely annoying to the point where I might need to walk around with a brand new MBP with its power cord duct taped to it! I believe the magnets are in the systems itself but please Apple come out with a revised adapter with a second set of neodymium magnets in the charging tip to counter act the problem and grab the machine tighter. I'd rather it be bulkier and work properly. I understand the point that is supposed to break away, but not by a feather landing on it! We miss Steve Jobs. I hope this isn't the type of product glitches we will have to get accustomed to now. Apple is supposed to be Apple, This isn't Apple at all.

    If I sneeze it unplugs.
    If someone shuts the door the change in air pressure makes it unplug.
    As the tides shift it will unplug. If I sneeze it unplugs.

    As the tides shift it will unplug.
    Forget about working with the computer on your lap.
    The tiny magnet I used in nursery school to gather iron filings in the sandbox was stronger.
    And it unseats so easily that time and time again when I think it's charging it's not.
    Bad, bad, bad. For shame. And it is so easy to fix.

No matter how carefully I move my laptop, any movement of any kind results in the plug falling off. Very frustrating. This did not happen with the previous generation.

  • Absolute junk ... disposable quality!

    Apple's power adapters are awful quality, it's a running joke in our family they are so disposable. We've had a couple dozen MacBo Apple's power adapters are awful quality, it's a running joke in our family they are so disposable. We've had a couple dozen MacBook's in the past few years for business and personal use, and every one of them has required at least 2-3 adapter replacements. The white cord splits, frays and inevitably fails - and we are very easy on them (they stay stationary and aren't traveled with) ... the only wear is plugging it into our machines. Our latest casualty actually looked like a fireworks show as it finally gave out and started sparking and flashing in a very dangerous way. SO disappointed that Apple hasn't addressed the quality issues here!

  • What? How can a 2000 € computer have a cable as wimpy as this?

    My MacBook & cable are exactly 1 year and 5 months old. And yesterday the cable just stopped working. No signs of damage. Everythi My MacBook & cable are exactly 1 year and 5 months old. And yesterday the cable just stopped working. No signs of damage. Everything still nice and neat and perfect - except - it stopped working. WHY oh WHY must Apple do this to me? Thank goodness I spent a fortune on a cover-all guarantee for 500€. I would have gone stark raving mad if they had asked me to pay for the new one. Actually one of the salesmen even thought so, but he was corrected by his colleague. This is unacceptable for a machine this expensive. There has to be at least one other way of charging the MacBook as a backup solution. The MagSafe comes with a little cap which I obviously lost at some stage, my new resolution is to always put that cap on when the charger is not in use. But somehow I have an inkling feeling that its going to be kaputt again next year - no matter what. I don't want to speculate - but - I don't think Apple is interested in selling MacBooks that last forever - so maybe they can deactivate the chargers from a distance??? This is the kind of nonsense people conjure when Apple fails them. Make it go away!
