    Awful

    Just falls apart and stops working, highly inconvenient. I can't figure out why it's so difficult to make a charger that actually works.

    Terrible

    We all know Apple makes their products faulty so you have to go in for repair. I'm at the point on my second charger where I have to hold the wires in place and pray to the deities to get a charge. Try to find a cheaper alternative.

    Poor Design

    I'm about to purchase my 4th one due to it fraying and falling apart, yet again. I've had my MacBook Pro for 5 years and this charger is the bane of my existence when it comes to my MacBook Pro. The first charger that came with the MacBook Pro was the one that lasted the longest, at about 2 years. Since then I've had to purchase a new one yearly due to the same issue of it fraying and falling apart.

    Needs to be recalled.

    I have been through two of the previous version Magsafe adapters for frayed connectors on my old 2007 Macbook Pro. Looks like my 2011 Macbook air is no exception: Today I woke up to find the charger cracked and frayed. It's not a big deal when this happens on an iPhone lightning cable, you can get those for a few dollars, but these Magsafe adapters are 80 bucks a pop! It's not my fault Apple chose to use low quality rubber for their cables instead of durable plastic.

    This has been going on FOR YEARS.

    As delicate as a flower.

    Be careful with this charger. Its super easy to break, with the wear and tear of a modern college life, I go through a charger about once every six to eight months, and they are really over priced for the quality that is given. Apple can make some really good iPhones and MacBooks, but their homemade accessories are terrible.

    5th one I've bought for my mid-2012 Macbook Pro.

    5th time buying one of these, they fall apart so easily and fray on the ends without failure after only a few months of use. The most recent one I got, was addictive to my cat who chewed it in half before I realized what she was up to. Good thing it wasn't plugged in!

    It’s alright.

    I’ve had my MacBook Pro for nearly 4 years now and I’m just now experiencing the fraying of the chord. I did wrap it with electrical tape but the casing just comes off further and further down. I know it came from rubbing on my desk edge for so long so I expected the fraying but it should still be better built. Other than that, it does what it’s supposed to and hopefully I don’t need to buy another one for a few more years.

    BAD ENGINEERED PRODUCT

    Not at all happy with the product quality and it's engineering. The price of this adapter should be reduced because it won't last more than 6 months to 1 year.

    Worst product ever made

    I work in tech support for a company with 300 employees, with most using macbook pro with magsafe-adaptors. In an average week I get two broken magsafe chargers in return. What a terrible polluting product!

    Very bad

    A year in and ANOTHER charger is dead. As it began to break down (from completely normal use) I've tried to add more life by supporting the weak points. It just failed out of nowhere today. 7% battery left and I need to study. Looks like I'm going over to 5th ave today :(

    Terrible

    The charger that came with my MacBook Pro lasted for almost 3 years but the cord just ended up breaking off. I'm mainly just mad about the cost of the chargers and when I bought one from the store it looked used as the box was ripped in the inside and the cord wasn't wrapped properly.

    MagSafe Power Adapter - MacBook Pro 15 inch

    This is a very weak product. Its my 4th charger in 3 years. It constantly frays around the adapter end. I am highly disappointed in Apple's pricing and manufacturing for this product. I've spent half the amount on chargers as the cost of the computer. Please do something to help your loyal customers Apple! This is not fair.

    Terrible. Been through 5 chargers within 4 years

    This charger must be made shoddily. I bought my MacBook Pro 4 years ago, since then I've had to replace this charger 5 times, for approximately $80 each charger. Save yourself the money and do not buy any laptop that uses this charger. What may seem like a good initial investment will just lead to pouring money down the drain for overpriced chargers as they continuously stop working. I would give 0 stars as a review, of possible.

    :-(

    Unfortunately, I am here to purchase yet another power adapter. As other reviewers have stated, mine started to fray again (this is the 3rd one for me). For a few days it worked even after it started to fray. Today it went out completely. When I checked the frayed area it looked more frayed and brownish in color, so I guess it burned on through. :-( There has to be a way to prevent this!!!

    Fray, fray, fray!

    Forced to purchase my 2nd replacement power adapter which means I've now gone through 3 - including the one that came with the laptop. All due to fraying on the cords. What a waste of $85! I'm very disappointed - not at all the level of quality one expects from an Apple product!

    POS

    Our second cord is fraying now just like the first one did. The rubber just starts to split. I used electrical tape to "fix" it but the split just stars at the edge of the elecrical tape and continues to get longer. At this point I have about a foot of the cord wrapped in electrical tape and I have to add more.I refuse to buy another MacBook until Apple redesigns this cord. I'm going to go leave a bad review for the computer now based on this cord. Maybe Apple will pay attention if it's their actual computer getting the bad rating because they seem to be ignoring everyone reviewing the charger.

    Cheap construction, overpriced, absolutely horrible, a total failure

    I really have nothing nice to say about the cord other than it plugs well into the machine. Everything from its construction, its durability, its design, the usage that design infers, and price is horrifically atrocious.
    * If you use the clips that are built in to it to wrap your cord then your cord will fray and die in less than a year.
    * If the cord encounters any resistance or rough surface on the outside then it will quickly fray.
    * The white coating quickly acquires dirt from the ground leaving you with a beautiful laptop that has a dingy power cord.
    * The cord is so thin that it is easily frayed from normal usage. For example, if your chair rolls over the cord while working on your laptop, it will fray.
    * The cord is so thin that kinks develop between the cord and the connector to the computer. Among my large number of coworkers, I see more frayed connectors than good ones. Lots of users have tape on these things.
    * The large power unit only really works well for outlets that are vertical. Horizontal outlets introduce problems.
    * At over $70, it is expensive to replace. One would think that if they decided to make it thin and cheap they would at least give it a disposable price.
