    Works fine

    The magnetic connection is strong, the charging time is reasonable, and the cord material is sturdy.

    Perfectly fine

    I'm buying a second one for home use, and I'm really not sure why there are so many negative reviews for these power adapters (and all of Apple's cables for that matter). I've had my two current MacBook Pros for 11 and 3 years, and I'm still using the original chargers for them! They've been taken with me on airplanes, to work and to school, and apart from some grime and scratches, these adapters are perfect. There's really no need for the poor ratings, except maybe for the high price.

    -The magnets are just fine, pull some of the cord up and leave some slack next to you, it's supposed to pop out easily so the computer isn't accidentally pulled off a table or lap. And you don't want powerful magnets in the laptop anyway.
    -When you pull the plug out from the outlet, grasp the head of the plug, don't yank the cord. Do the same with the magnet side. This applies to any cable, from any manufacturer.

    Seriously, I've had one for 11 years now, and it shows no signs of the damage people report. I'm not saying every single one is perfectly manufactured, things happen, but I think many of the issues people have are from neglect/mishandling.

    No problems at all

    I was so surprised to see all of the negative reviews. I've had mine for a year and it has been flawless. The only thing I would like is the ability to buy it without the extension cord (less expensive), so I can keep an extra one in my car for emergencies when away from home. I usually have my Mac on my desk and keep it plugged in most all the time. I don't know if the way I use it affects the good performance I've had or not but wanted to mention it.

    Why so Negative!?!

    I cant seem to understand why people are posting so much negative stuff. I am eleven years old and I have to use my mac book pro 15" every single day for school. My charger would work just find and those flap ups on the extension cord were very convenient. Unless you cant remember where you PUT your charger, I would not be complaining. (i stole my dads one and ONLY charger..................he got kinda upset)
