    Junk!

    • Written by from Boulder

    I've had 2 of these die on me in the past 3 months. The latest one to kick the bucket only lasted 3 weeks! None of them have been abused in any way, they're just poorly made and I'm getting sick of taking these things back to the apple store!

    Hate this charger

    • Written by from long beach

    It stopped working the second day I bought it. I had to come to the Review to see what kind of problems people have and their solutions so I can maybe get mine working again. It worked after I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in. I was very upset to see it break after just a day of usage and trying to figure out what happened to this faulty charger. It is kind of a relieve to know that I can always make it work by removing the battery.

    Aside from the frustration of its functionality, I like that it comes with an extension cord. Apple should make all their products free of defect.

    I agree with all other macbook users.

    • Written by from Roscoe

    It's been said countless times, but these chargers are the worst. Every other computer out there has one that you can disconnect before the dc adapter. Replacing the chord costs about $3. Not only are they built into the dc adapter on the mac, but the chords are flimsy and fray well within a year of regular usage.

    I've bought about 4 or 5 adapters in the past 4 years that I've owned my Mac at $80 a piece each. You can bet that this latest one to break is getting cracked open with a screwdriver and soldered together by hand, because there's no way that I'm going to continue to fund this kind of highway robbery.

    Apple, there are 1,504 negative reviews on this charger and more come rolling in every day. Please recall this product and design one that actually works.

    New Design But Broken Anyway

    • Written by from Duluth

    4/12/13 I'm about to buy my 5th power adapter in 5 years! The last one was the new and improved deal. The problem isn't just in the part that attaches to the computer. It's also the skinny cord that connects to the MagSafe. It kinks and shreds at the connection site. If's too expensive! Either redesign it or at least allow customers to buy just the skinny part & not the whole two part cord & adaptor. Come on APPLE!

    Bad experience

    • Written by from Spofford

    We just bought our 3rd adaptor in 3 years. We don't beat them up - honest. This time, we will reinforce the joint where the plug meets the cord, preemptively and implore Apple to fix this problem. Thanks.

    Expensive, breaks often.

    • Written by from Hellertown

    I am going to be on charger number three in two and a half years. The chargers just stop charging eventually. It's also ridiculous to pay $80 for something that breaks so often.

    Wonderful disposable adapters

    • Written by from Clifton Park

    I love Apple. I love them so much that I look forward to my magsafe adapter failing yet again so that I can transfer more of my money to Apple's coffers. Gotta love the "functionality" though. Use it for a few months and then chuck it for a new one. Wish other companies catch-up on the fine-art of designing disposable adapters. At least one technology Apple truly "pioneered". I pity those poor suckers using ancient PC technology. Oops...just realized that I spent too much time typing the review not noticing that my magsafe now shows only a faint green light. It's ka-ching time for Apple!

    • Written by from Lugoff

    I bought my Macbook Pro in June or July of 2010 for college. My charger that came with the laptop broke a year and a half later. I bought a new one and it really hasn't been that long and the new one has broken too!! I buy Apple products because of the quality and longevity they they are known for. I just don't understand why the chargers are so "disposable" in quality but definitely not disposable in price. $80+shipping and handling? really? PLEASE, does Apple read the reviews we leave? Work on a better charger!!

    worst

    • Written by

    if you guys don't change the design of the L-shape charger, at least lower the price to $10 or something. You guys charge $79+tax for a product that will only last couple months. Macbook is great and all, but the charger isn't at all

    Second one failed. Apple engineers should be ashamed of this product. It is a total failure, and reflects very poorly on Applr products.

    Worst Apple Product

    • Written by from Syracuse

    I don't understand how Apple can come up with these beautiful products - the macbook, ipod, ipad, iphone, etc - but can't make a working power adapter.

    I am really good to my electronics. However, my THIRD MagSafe power adapter (for a macbook I purchased in Jan 2009) just went. The power cord near the connector just splits. I take pains to make sure the cord is always in the right place, and never twisted so this doesn't happen. All my efforts don't matter - it still splits. I'm going to the Apple store tomorrow and because I purchased the last one only 7 months ago, I really hope its under the 1 year warranty so I don't have to shell out another $80 for a new one.

    This is just an awful product. Every other electronics company knows how to make a good power adapter. For the life of me, I can't understand why apple can't catch up.

    ridiculous!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've had 7 chargers in the past 6 months... some lasting mere days before frying themselves (which were ultimately replaced). The most recent one lasted 3 months! I'm a student, I can't afford to keep doing this. The original my laptop came with lasted 3.5 years before it had to be replaced, this new one is just plain ridiculous!

    • Written by from Knoxville

    i just had to get a replacement for my 13" macbook pro, which is not even one year old. the cord never leaves my living room, so it's not like i have been abusing the product, but it started having trouble connecting and finally died for good yesterday. fortunately it is still a free replacement under warranty, but i suspect it will happen again. at $80 a pop, that's not good. looks like there are lots of people with the same problem.

    Worst Power Adapter ever.

    • Written by from Barrie

    Apple really needs to step up and provide a better power adapter than this model. I've had 2 break on me in just under a year from the cord bending till it no longer works. A close friend had also had similar problems with his, and has replaced his twice now as well. I have never had power adapter problems with past laptops (Non-Apple), and this product is not "innovation".

    Garbage!!!!

    • Written by from Conroe

    This is the only part of a MAC that is garbage! The rest of the machine functions beautifully. I wish Apple would do their wonderful computers justice by designing an equally wonderful power supply. But no they don't, they are ok with this garbage power supply that is over priced. Anyone who has had a MAC for over a year is very aware of this problem. Apple you should be ashamed of this horrible product that you force us to buy. Disgusting!!!
