    Ridiculous...

    The Fact Is: I only need to replace the connecting portion of the "MagSafe Power Adapter" charger, the part with the magnetic connecter and the cheesy scrawny little cord, the part that can either plug into an outlet by itself or be attached to the heavy duty power cable (part two of this costly "Power Adapter" package), and yet I have to purchase BOTH parts of this two piece EXPENSIVE, yet crucial "accessory" for my MacBook. That is what I say is RIDICULOUS.

    The Question Is: What am I going to do with all these useless (yet very durable by contrast) heavy duty power cables that have nothing to connect to because their scrawny corded counterparts were so cheesy that they needed to be replaced many times over?! Does anyone out there have an answer to my query?

    Awful!!!

    Seriously, Apple. I love your products, but you would be hard-pressed to find a worse power adapter. Both times I've bought a new laptop, it stops working consistently within a year. And now I'm out of country from my warranty, and I have to replace the adapter! You should see from your merely 1.5 star avg rating that you need to change something. Fix it!!

    Btw, I'm only giving this 1 star because I can't give it less and make it look like I still rated the product.

    HOT!

    Ok So I have burned my fingers on the aluminum connector! It doesn't even charge half the time. I have to sit and jiggle it until the orange light comes on. What is going on! And seriously $79!!!!!

    These chargers are terrible.

    I take excellent care of my electronics, but these chargers aren't good. They need a much more solid design. I shouldn't have to bend the cord around randomly to try and get a charge out of it.

    It broke again

    The cable of this charger is so easy to brake and the price is so expansive that I considere it completely inappropriate to sell such a bad quality product at such a price.

    Not worth the $80

    NOT WORTH THE $80. My second charger decided to stop working after just over a year of use. I am about to purchase my third charger in less than four years which is absolutely ridiculous. I love my Mac and iPhone but the charging cords sold with Apple products are absolute garbage. These chargers are not of the high Apple quality I have come to know from their other products.

    Terrible Quality

    Apple needs to improve the quality of its product. I barely had my MacBook Pro for 9 months and this thing just dies. Never really travel with this laptop because it's personal and yet I am forking over $80 for a new one. Travel and beat up my HP work laptop outlet for years without replacing it.

    Nice design and intuitive system but the quality is lacking in a major way for these apple accessories. I feel robbed.

    Absolute Garbage...

    I take good care of all of my stuff, yet some how I have gone through 4 of these stupid power supplies in the 3 years I've had my computer.

    All of them break due to the weak joint in the power connection. I'm really upset about the low quality of these joints.

    Easily Broken

    I've had this charger appox. 5 months, and I started having problems with the charger 1-2 months ago, sometimes it wouldn't charge and sometimes the charger head would feel really hot. It has broken completely yesterday. It is not worth buying a $80 replacement as a Highschool student, that is fraeking expensive.

    Found the Problem!

    I've had my 15" MacBook for almost a year now and I was really concerned when it stopped charging, the light on my power adapter wouldn't turn on and the computer wouldn't recognize that it was plugged in. The problem started out intermittently, I would plug the cord in and the either the light wasn't on or the computer wouldn't recognize it was charging. For a few days I simply had to unplug the cord from the wall and computer and replug it in in (to wall then computer, never computer then wall) and it would start charging again.
    Eventually it stopped working all together. Reading all the reviews online I was sure my charger had completely died and that I would have to get a whole new one. I called the 1-800-MY-APPLE in case the problem was fixable.

    IT WAS. Please, please PLEASE TRY THIS BEFORE YOU BUY A NEW CORD. I would've been beyond PO'ed if I'd bought a new cord just to find this was the problem all along.The tech support guy instructed me to push the small metal prongs inside the magsafe connector (the part that plugs into the comp) in and out several times, because sometimes debris can become caught inside it. MY LAPTOP IS NOW CHARGING! He did say to keep an eye on it and that sometimes they do completely die, But at least I know that my adapter can and probably will last longer than a year!

    I would give it 0 stars if possible

    I have bought two of these chargers in the past year, and both of them have split and fallen apart. Its extremely frustraiting considering that they are $80. Apple needs to improve the durability of them asap.

    Garbage.

    If I could give zero stars on this product I would. I've had my MacBook Pro for 5 years and I'm already on my 4th charger. I NEVER travel with my power adapter but somehow it always frays. It's literally garbage and so expensive. This is so badly flawed that it should have a lifetime warranty. Hate, hate, hate this power cord.

    Not worth it

    My power cable just broke.. again. This is the third I've gone through in 4 years. They don't last and they're not worth the 80$. I would recommend going to a second hand store where you can find them for closer to 15$. Not even sure if they're worth that. Anyway, don't waste your money here. Like everyone else, I love my computer, love the mac but the chords are the worst.

    I wish I could give NEGATIVE stars!

    First I have to say....I LOVE MY MAC. It's sentimental to me because I bought it while deployed in 2008. However, I now have to buy another charger because the craftsmanship of this product is subpar. My cord is frayed and I'm surprised it hasn't caused an electrical fire in my home. For an 80 dollar charger, you would expect it to last at least 3 years or more. I seriously think it's time for a CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. This is criminal!

    Absolute Junk

    I have gone through 3 of these things in 4 years. At 80 bucks a pop I'm starting to wonder if it's even worth it for a 4 year old laptop. The folks at Apple, of course, will tell you it's user error. Yet, I have adapters from other laptops that have lasted the better part of 10 years with daily use. Apple, I know a sturdier piece may not look as pretty, but it's time to do something about it. This is 2 or 3 failed adaptor designs in a row, stop calling it "user error", drop the excuses and do something about it.

    Embarrassingly defective

    I have replaced this plug before because of the same problem. The wires pull from the L portion of the plug, and that makes charging the Macbook dangerous and sometimes impossible. However, for $80 we deserve a better and safer product. One of the teeth actually dislodged from the plug and remained in my surge protector. This lack of integrity is a breeding ground for disaster. Come on Apple! Do better!

    It will not last longer than 6 months, even with careful use!
