  • Overview

    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.

      Awful Design, Terrible Job Apple.

      I had a 2009 Macbook 15" I paid $2000 for and the power adapter was 100% awesome. Never had an issue, used it and abused it. I paid $2500 for this Late 201 I had a 2009 Macbook 15" I paid $2000 for and the power adapter was 100% awesome. Never had an issue, used it and abused it. I paid $2500 for this Late 2013 Mac. Power cord lasted less than 1.5 years before the cord frayed. This needs to be recalled for terrible quality and design. The thing not only heats up like crazy, but the cord literally melted and now the wires are exposed. Nice job apple. Nice job.

      Design/magnet must have been updated

It takes considerably more force to remove than the old design. It seems they might have rectified the issue, I hope this is the new norm for future buyers.

      About that "weakness" issue...

      I just received my Macbook Pro with Retina today and after reading constant reviews about how easily the magsafe 2 adapter came out, I was ready to be disappoin I just received my Macbook Pro with Retina today and after reading constant reviews about how easily the magsafe 2 adapter came out, I was ready to be disappointed. Well after trying it out today, I am very pleasantly surprised. It doesn't quite snap in as easily as the first generation t-shape but once you get it in there it stays very well. Other reviews had mentioned the adapter coming out from simply picking up the laptop and moving it, well I just spent a whole minute shaking it harder and harder. I did manage to make the connecter fall out once by waving my computer around like a maniac but before that I was moving it around pretty fast and it stayed in perfectly. If it does come out easier than the first gen, it's not much easier. Maybe Apple silently fixed this issue throughout production, but I can confirm that the slimmer magsafe 2 adapter that came with my rMBP today works wonderfully. Hope this helps :)

      Weak magnet, always detaching!

      If you lift the macbook pro vertically, be sure to expect that more than half the time the charger will detach with ease. I understand that Apple was trying to If you lift the macbook pro vertically, be sure to expect that more than half the time the charger will detach with ease. I understand that Apple was trying to improve on its old charger but I find fault in both versions. The previous model may have had a stronger magnet even. Any abrupt movement will cause this charger to detach. Extremely inconvenient when trying to charge and type on one's lap while sitting on the couch or in bed. Very disappointing!

      Rare Junk From Apple

      You know, you shouldn't even have to think about your power supply. It should be a non-issue. It should be invisible. This mis-designed mutant wart certainly is You know, you shouldn't even have to think about your power supply. It should be a non-issue. It should be invisible. This mis-designed mutant wart certainly is not. I was introduced to my first MacBook Pro in 2009, and it had the MagSafe 1. Didn't even know it was there. I could move my laptop...set it on the arm of my chair...move it over so the cat could jump and get some love...set it on the table or retract my chair to get up and set it on the ground...didn't matter what I was doing, it stayed attached to the computer BECAUSE IT WAS OUT OF THE WAY. The MagSafe 2 hangs out there just begging to get knocked off, and it gets its wish 5-10 times per night. I can't have the computer on my lap with it connected without either disconnecting it, or scrunching my legs together uncomfortably to make room on the side for the wart...but by then the cable has fallen off again. This product is mid-90's tech and shouldn't be on a state of the art 2015 computer. Apple should be ashamed...should re-design a power supply of tech contained in the new model put together with the practicality of the old model...and exchange the re-designed supply free of charge with us that spent way too much for an Apple product to begin with. Disgusting.
