      1 in every 5 times I connect, the power light doesn't come on. I have to jiggle it around and continue to reconnect it until I get a light.

      MagSafe to MagSafe 2?

      This converter is a must. Why Apple changed a perfectly working device to the MagSafe 2 is beyond me... the MagSafe 2 is terrible and pulls out twice as easy. This converter is a must. Why Apple changed a perfectly working device to the MagSafe 2 is beyond me... the MagSafe 2 is terrible and pulls out twice as easy. And when you use this converter - it is even worse as far as accidental pull-out.

      Works 1 out of 10 times :( Bad design.

      I have a MacBook Pro with a Retina display, and a 27" Apple Cinema display with a power cable. Unfortunately this adapter has been working very poorly, and most I have a MacBook Pro with a Retina display, and a 27" Apple Cinema display with a power cable. Unfortunately this adapter has been working very poorly, and most of the time it does not properly supply power to the macbook. Light does not come on, the laptop shows it's powered on battery, and I have to literally wet both sides of the adapter to make it work.

      Unreliable

Now it is very difficult to get it to connect properly when first connecting it, I have to jiggle it every which way to get it to finally connect. I'm also regularly using a compressed air cleaner to clean it and the other connections to get it to properly work. I use my Macbook on a desk so it's not like it's moving around a lot or at all where it might disconnect, I'd hate to see how this works when using it on your lap. I'd prefer not to have to purchase an $80 MagSafe 2 charger when this should do the job and work with my several MagSafe 1 chargers.

      Never got it to work.

      I would give it zero stars if I could. I'm using an 85w magsafe purchased less than a year ago, with the adapter that I purchased about 3 weeks ago. I got a n I would give it zero stars if I could. I'm using an 85w magsafe purchased less than a year ago, with the adapter that I purchased about 3 weeks ago. I got a new 15" macbook pro and didn't want to lug my charger from home to work and back every day. Found this, which looked like a perfect solution. Except it's never worked. Not even once. I've spent over an hour trying different things to get it to work, based on advice from message boards and from apple. The real pain is that it was like 10 bucks, and I threw the packaging away when I opened it. It's not worth my time to drive back to the store and spend 30 min-1 hour of my life getting that $10 back. I'm very irritated by this product, and by apple's shameless money-grab antics with new chargers for their laptops and phones.

      Pointless!

      The best reason for wanting to adapt your MagSafe 1 adapter to work with a MagSafe 2 machine would be to alleviate the incessant disconnecting that occurs when The best reason for wanting to adapt your MagSafe 1 adapter to work with a MagSafe 2 machine would be to alleviate the incessant disconnecting that occurs when your LAPTOP is on, well, your LAP! This "adapter" succeeds in rendering the right-angle MagSafe 1 adapter's right-angle design (which prevents disconnection every time one moves) thoroughly USELESS! Apple just make the MagSafe 2 adapter with the right-angle connector! I mean seriously, you obviously KNEW the original MagSafe design was flawed in this way so you made the right-angle version. What on earth made anyone believe that going BACK to the first generation MagSafe connector design was going to work. Oh yeah, I get it... we will introduce the "solution to the problem" for ANOTHER $80.00 after a year or so of complaints just like last time. How very "Microsoft" of you!
