  • Overview

    The 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Air stays put safely. It also helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible only with MacBook Air featuring MagSafe 2 power port.

      Broke too soon

      Quite careful with my equipment. This one simply stopped working under no significant stress conditions. Quality control alert.

      Worst Apple product or accesory

      This is like a bad dream. When I saw the reviews I thought they were joking. I feel like sending the entire laptop back because of the adapter. It falls off for This is like a bad dream. When I saw the reviews I thought they were joking. I feel like sending the entire laptop back because of the adapter. It falls off for no reason and gets in the way. Apple needs to do a recall.

      Only read reviews of MagSafe TWO - it's TERRIBLE!

      All these reviews saying they've had no problems for over 6 months are reviews for other models. The new MagSafe 2 hasn't been available for that long - only si All these reviews saying they've had no problems for over 6 months are reviews for other models. The new MagSafe 2 hasn't been available for that long - only since the new 2012 MBA's came out in mid-June. The new MagSafe 2's charger attachment magnet is incredibly weak and will detach at the slightest provocation. Or unhappy thought. Or suspicious look. This product is terrible and Apple should fix this as soon as possible.

      Worst cable ever I used.

      The rubber/plastic around the cable comes of after very little use. It now looks like a dog chewed on it even if that never happened. And now it won't charge my The rubber/plastic around the cable comes of after very little use. It now looks like a dog chewed on it even if that never happened. And now it won't charge my computer anymore. I am Very disappointed in the quality, or rather lack of, in this product.

      What's everyone's problem??

      I don't understand why everyone has a problem. If it's the adapter then maybe you guys are doing something wrong. As far as the CHARGER itself, which is what is I don't understand why everyone has a problem. If it's the adapter then maybe you guys are doing something wrong. As far as the CHARGER itself, which is what is SUPPOSED to be getting reviewed, there should be no problem there, either. Unless the user is doing something wrong. I have mine plugged in under my couch and it got caught in the reclining mechanism, therefore splintering the cord. That's MY fault. Just going to go down and get a new one. NO big deal.
