      A macbook charger with no cable

      Come on Apple. If you order a charger, you expect to get a charger with a cable to allow it to charge. This charger comes without the necessary USB-C lead. I Come on Apple. If you order a charger, you expect to get a charger with a cable to allow it to charge. This charger comes without the necessary USB-C lead. I feel cheated. Not happy

      As stated: $50 for a charger that requires another $30 cable?

The point of buying an additional charger is to leave it plugged in at your desk and have another one always in your bag so you don't have to unwrap cables, reach behind desks, or crawl on the ground. This device does not solve ANY of those problems by itself for $50. It only gives you an additional brick.

      About 6 months...

      Mine lasted about 6 months, or 180 plug and 180 unplugs (about 8 cents each), before it became "fiddly," only charging when I plugged it in just the right way o Mine lasted about 6 months, or 180 plug and 180 unplugs (about 8 cents each), before it became "fiddly," only charging when I plugged it in just the right way or when the local DMV was open for business. It's sad that Apple designs such robust computing hardware, but chooses to accessorize it with flimsy, overpriced junk like this. At least USB-C isn't proprietary like Mag Safe and I can look forward to a 3rd party providing a more robust alternative.

      Incredible adapter...

      This adapter is overwhelmingly preferable in comparison to the 12 watt variant, as the total charge time for an iPad Pro 12.9" from 0 to 100 % is just over 2 ho This adapter is overwhelmingly preferable in comparison to the 12 watt variant, as the total charge time for an iPad Pro 12.9" from 0 to 100 % is just over 2 hours, assuming you plug the adapter into an AC wall socket, and use the official Apple lightning to usb-c cable. Using the included lightning to usb-a charging cable in concert with the included 12 watt adapter in an AC wall socket, it will take approximately 7+ hours to go from a battery level of 0% to a full 100% charge. I tried using 2 non-Apple lightning to usb-c cable variants with the 29 watt adapter, and while the charge rate did, in fact, increase, and the respective charging time decrease, it is not nearly as fast as the combination of both official Apple products used in concert. I have repeatedly charged my iPad Pro 12.9" from 0 to 100% in approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, and that includes some minor usage while charging. The cost of the 29 watt adapter and 2 meter lightning to usb-c cable will run you around $85.00, but is absolutely and definitively worth it. That being said, c'mon, Apple...given the price of the top end iPad Pro variant, including both the 29 watt adapter and the 1 meter lightning to usb-c cable as part of the retail package seems not only justified, but necessary, at least regarding the valued areas of customer satisfaction and appreciation.

      Cheap Garbage

      This charger stopped functioning after approximately 3 months. Out of no where just failed to charge the laptop. Blasting all ends of the socket and cable ends This charger stopped functioning after approximately 3 months. Out of no where just failed to charge the laptop. Blasting all ends of the socket and cable ends with computer cleaner didn't resolve the problem. Had to purchase a new charger to use my $1300 computer

      The charger I always wanted for my iPad Pro 12.9

      Since the time I first heard the 29W power adapter can be used for the iPad Pro 12.9, I've wanted to try it. Using the 12W adapter is disconcerting when it see Since the time I first heard the 29W power adapter can be used for the iPad Pro 12.9, I've wanted to try it. Using the 12W adapter is disconcerting when it seems to make no headway at all in charging the iPad while I'm using it. Sometimes the battery power has gone DOWN while plugged in...which makes me feel really uneasy if I need to use it a lot later in the day. With the 29W charger, I can use my iPad Pro with the screen at full brightness and watch the battery level climb quickly up. THAT's reassuring. Apart from believing that Apple should have included the 29W adapter and USB-C-Lightning cable in the box with my iPad in the first place, I am thankful and totally satisfied with my purchase.
