    Rip off

    I've had 3 power brick that have failed."out of warranty"
    This is the cheapest produced I've even see- from any computer company.
    I'll buy a 3rd party supply because even at $80 these are cheap trash

    The Reason I will avoid Apple products in the future.

    Having to buy a replacement for this charger for the second time in two months. It is ridiculous how much it costs, and how easily it breaks.

    Apple gets an A+ from Evil University!

    Our family has 4 laptops and two desktops - the desktops are the only computers with power cords that don't fail on a regular basis, requiring new cords at approximately $80 / unit. Well played, Corporate Overlord!

    HORRIBLE!!!

    Why can't apply make a decent charger? this is ridiculous. As most customers on that have written a review we take care of our apple products but when its poorly made what else can we do. Its really a (fill in the blank) shame.

    Bad quality

    Apple should do something about the way it's built because it's extremely delicate and the normal usage makes it fail. Not fair to have to pay again for the next charger, need to do a recall and change materials!

    I can't do it anymore

    I have been a dedicated Mac user for over a decade, but this infuriating charger has pushed me over the edge for the last time.
    Goodbye, Apple.

    BAD ENGINEERED PRODUCT

    Not at all happy with the product quality and it's engineering. The price of this adapter should be reduced because it won't last more than 6 months to 1 year.

    Worst customer experience ever

    I cannot tell how many chargers have I bought....
    the following is quote from your annual report:
    ''....is committed to bringing the best user experience to its customers through its innovative hardware, software
    and services..

    I have all except BEST EXPERIENCE AS A CUSTOMERS...This charger has been around for what? 10 years now or close? I had my first mac book in 2006...

    If you cannot make a better charger than what you are actually making, then you should probably MAKE SOME REORGANIZATION...Get rid of the entire ''charger team'' from A to Z...maybe it will help....no seriously please stick to your mission; committed to bringing the best user experience to its customers!!!

    What a rip off

    I bought this power adaptor in late November of 2012. It stopped working a week ago. This is my third adaptor for the same macbook. I am very gentle with my power adaptors and they all break after a few months. It is extremely flawed. It is ridiculous that I have to pay for another power adaptor because the previous one did not last longer than 6 months. I have no choice but to go and buy a fourth $79 power adaptor. Redesign the power adaptors already!

    Dead

    I bought my Macbook Pro 1 year & 3 months ago. The charger that came with it has frayed and melted close to the power adapter. I was able to position it in a certain way to charge, but it would cause my laptop to overheat and shocked me. I have also gone through 4 iphone chargers in the past 2 years. This has never happened to my old non-apple electronics; my previous Sony lasted 6 years without needed to replace the charger. This is ridiculous; Apple chargers an arm and a leg for their products, yet the materials they use are cheap and do not last... geez I wonder why. I am so turned off. I was the biggest Apple fan and have converted so many people. Good riddance.

    power rubbish

    I have had three power adaptors now and its no good I will be on my 4th time at £65 a time it's crazy. Apple please please do something about it, I love the gear but you are costing me more for something that is just not fit for purpose. I would love to give more of a hight star rating so help us Apple lovers.

    Zero stars would be more appropriate

    This is the worst Apple product I have ever had. THE WORST. I have had 3 chargers in 3 years. I take care of my things and make sure to treat the cable with care and not yank it out. I also make sure to not twist it. But they still break. What a piece of junk.

    Another Dead Magsafe

    If I could give zero stars I would, but I was required to give 1 star to get this posted. I am about to head to the Apple Store and buy a THIRD magsafe for my son's macbook that we purchased for him in August 2011. The first one lasted for 7 months. It split at the point where the wire meets the magnetic pin and stopped working. The second one died after only 3 months. So that's $240 spent on chargers and the computer isn't even a year old. Unacceptable Apple. What a disgrace.

    Apple charger bad

    I purchased an Apple laptop in June of 2010 and the charger has already torn up by April 2011. It broke at the point of where the charger attaches to the computer. i am very disappointed with this charger. I ordered another one at the expensive price of 80.00 and when I got it, it did not even work at all. I had to return it for a third charger. Apple needs to do a recall to replace these free. Mine also emitted sparks once when I tried to attach it to my computer. I am very dissatisfied with this Apple product and its price.

    Power supply cord for MacBook Pro

    I've replaced 3 of these adapters since buying my MacBook early 2011. I now need a fourth. I was searching here to find out if I was the only one with this problem. Clearly not. So I add my voice to the multitudes of unhappy MacBook users with frayed cords (and tempers.) Please Apple, why on earth can you not design a sturdier set up for a power supply? I'm good at storing adapters, appliance cords etc, this is the only one that breaks down.
    There should be a recall. Or, you should make replacements MUCH cheaper than $79. And you need to create a better design.

    College Students Already Pay Enough

    Dear Apple,

    I'm currently an undergrad sophomore studying psychology. I have two assignments due tomorrow and three more due on wednesday, all of which have to be typed, and my computer's charger stopped working this morning.

    So, naturally, I go to buy a new one from my bookstore, which is a certified apple seller. Great. Same prices.

    I was thinking, "Oh boy it's gonna stink to have to spend 40, maybe 50$ on a new charger. But hey, if I gotta do it, fine. This is for school." Boy was I wrong.

    I arrive at the bookstore and they tell me it costs not 40, not 50, not even 60, but 80 dollars for a new charger.

    Oh, sorry. Not 80. It costs 79.

    I cannot believe that you, Apple, are so pretentious and snobby enough to release chargers that hardly even work at a price that is higher than the amount of money I make in half a week. I already paid over a thousand dollars to use your macbook pro, which shows me more rainbow spinny wheels than I would see if I worked at a carnival (where things are cheap and fun, I might add).
    Apple, I'm sorry, but I'm breaking up with you.

    Okay, Okay, I'm done ranting.

    I just wanted to let you know that I am now dropping out of college because I won't be able to get this assignment in on time due to the fact that my computer is dead and I cannot charge it.

    I'm typing this on a chromebook that I borrowed from my friend, by the way. Cheap charger + Great computer. I hate you.

    Have a great time living your life with poor people's money, Apple. I hope you are happy that you've ruined the dreams and hopes of yet another college student living in America just trying to get by.

    Sincerely,
    A College Dropout

    Frayed Power Adapter Cable

    My macbook air's power adapter cable is cracking up and peeling off like an old toast bread. I've only used it from March 2012 till present after I bought it in December 2012. It a shame I'll have to buy another one for $80, which will give way in no time. APPLE PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM. The rubber material is substandard.

    Incredibly poorly designed

    While the "MagSafe" aspect of the adapter is no admittedly a great idea, the wire connections to the rectifier and computer connection are flimsy and pathetic. I'm gone through three adapters and will be going generic now, if only to pay less. Seems like a safe bet, since the quality can't get too much worse...
