    Poor Quality, Can Be Dangerous.

    I have a late 2008 MacBook 13" Unibody, and I have been through 3 of these 60W chargers. 2 have come apart at the same spot (near the plug that goes into the Macbook) and when they come apart the wiring is showing so I have had to cover with electrical tape to make it some what safe. On the 3rd one, same spot came apart AND towards the brick it came apart and started smoking. Poor Product , Poor Quality, and a Fire Hazard.

    Don't Last!

    Like many others this is my 5th power cord, for the price they are poor quality, but it seems to be the only option.

    Very displeased with this charger

    I bought my macbook about 1 year and a half ago, and the L shape charger that it came with is already broken. The part that connects to the port has totally broken of, and I can see the clean cut of wires and the glue residue, this product was not made properly or with quality. Even though Apple states that there products are the best. My older brother has the old apple charger for about 4-5 years now and it still works perfectly. Aren't newer products meant to last longer?
    I am very disappointed. Now my birthday present is going to be a new charger since they cost so much. Will i have to buy a new one every year? I hope not.

    Short Lived

    Mac power adapters are horrible for longevity. With my macbook I had about 5 power adapters all together. The first one lasted for about 3 years and after that the product really took a nose dive. I have a macbook air now and the power cord that came with it only lasted a little over a year. This product needs serious improvement.

    Are you listening Apple?!!??

    I am a dedicated macbook user, but this charger is the bane of my existence. I have had to replace it three times, two of those in the last 6 months! I've read on mac forums that the design is flawed, and that the wire frays inside the casing, which explains why mine no longer charges my computer. The fact that it costs me eighty bucks to replace it everytime it breaks is mind blowing... Apple should be replacing these things for free with how shoddy they're made. WORST CHARGER EVERRRRR.

    Apple likes to take your money.

    My charger stopped working a while back and I didn't want to spend $80 on a new charger... Because that seems a little ridiculous. I cut my charger wire and taped it back together a few times to get it working again, that seemed to work for awhile until it starting sparking and making noises. So now, I guess i'm forced to buy one of these over priced chargers that are clunky & fragile, also I expect that it is not going to last long before it breaks. These chargers are the only option given to us, and we need them. So Apple continues to squeeze as much money as possible out of their loyal customers.

    Apple really needs to read all these reviews and develop a new more durable charger with a slim design that is also a little lower in price.

    This thing is terrible and it is expensive

    In the past 3 months, I have been through 3 power adapters. These things cannot stand the stress of being brought back and forth from work to home each day. With the amount of money they cost, I would expect apple to provide a better product.

    Terrible

    Lasted a year before dying. The covering over the wires is made of very inferior material, it will fray heavily over time even if you take great care of it. The magsafe is awesome but the fundamentally poor quality of the cable itself is ridiculous - and at 80 dollars to get a replacement, I cannot speak positively at all about this.

    Expensive for a poorly designed charger

    I love my Macbook but the chargers are horrible. Spending $80 for this charger is absurd due to the fact that it breaks easily. Apple should change their charger design.

    Horrible

    This charger is AWFUL! The cable connecting the casing is wayyyyyy too thin and it breaks easily. Mine just did after little over a year. This is absurd. A laptop charger should last for YEARS barring any abuse or misplacement. And replacing this essential piece of hardware costs EIGHTY DOLLARS!!!This is extremely frustrating and very baffling as my 2010 13 inch MacBook Pro itself works beautifully, no complaints at all. The fact that the computer itself works so well makes the charger issue even more frustrating How did the same people who designed that beauty create this piece of of electronic excrement? That said, for any Windows users considering switching to our side, don't let the many complaints about the chargers dissuade you. Macs function far better than Windows machines, so much so that it is worth putting up with this expensive hassle. Still, Apple fix this already please.

    Just a piece of cr@p

    Can NOT fathom that I'm buying ANOTHER power cord???? We have 4 different MacBook's in our family and it seems like I buy one of these every 3 or 4 months. This time its my 13" MacBook Pro. They should sell an extended warranty on these chargers; NOT GOOD.

    APPLE WANTS IT TO BREAK

    I take excellent care of my adapter and this is the 3rd time i've had to replace it. at $80 a pop i can see why apple doesn't do anything about the crapy design. They are making a fortune off of us. seriously f these people.... what an outrageously priced piece of s-. this is really the only problem i have with any of their products. get your stuff together apple.

    Waste of money

    I have had my Mac since 09 when I graduated, my adapater worked fine for nearly two years. Then it would start blinking in and out and I would wiggle it a litle til it worked again, that worked for like a week then it stopped working all together. So I paid up and got the newest one, it was a little different then the first one I had, and it worked a-OK for a total of about five months. And without any warning at ALL, it just quit working. There is no way I can afford spending $80 every few months because Apple decides to make ***** products. I love my Mac, but I am not going to waste my money more then once.

    Terrible

    I've had my Mac Book Pro for just over a year now and I'm already replacing my 2nd power cord, making this new one the 3rd. The cord never even leaves my desk and yet it's broken twice. Why can't Apple fix such a blatant flaw in their otherwise great computers? For a brand marketed on it's durability and portability it's a pathetic oversight when their power cords can't even handle a few months of typical use at a desk.

    Horrible

    This charger from week one is the cruddiest piece of garbage. It doesn't charge when I plug it in unless I'm on my knees praying to God that it will so that I can get my homework done. I've spent too much money to be dealing with a freaking chord problem. A PC would never have this issue unless I had violently abused it.

    Terrible manufacturing

    This power adapter is very flimsy and broke on me after only a year. Its a terrible design. This is completely over priced and Apple needs to update to a more dependable adaptor. This is ridiculous!

    Ugh; I thought this one would last longer...

    I thought the new angle of the wire would make this power adapter last longer than the previous model, but it's about a year later, and here I am, replacing it again. It's my annual $79 power brick tax, for the third time in three years.

    I love the magsafe mechanism; it's kept the dog and the kid from knocking the laptop over a number of times, but it seems to me that they could build a joint to last a bit better for $79. If it were $20 or $30 I wouldn't mind replacing it every year, but when the price is encroaching on $100, for a power brick, I expect it to last for at least two or three years.

    WORST PRODUCT EVER

    I've had my Mac for about 6 months and the charger always dies. I have to move the wire around and bend it a little for it work. It's ridiculous, the old charger was way better. Talk about change and progression, they made this worse.

    Lousy Powercord

    The only reason I'm here shopping is because my powercord only lasted about a year. The first one that came with the computer lasted about one and a half years. So now I'm buying my THIRD one in less than 3 years. At 75 dollars a whack - plus tax -- this is ridiculous! Apple computers are great, but the powercords are awful! Shame on you Apple! You're letting a little (but vital and absolutely essential) item ruin your good reputation!
