The converter's m The converter works as advertised. It lets me use an existing power supply with my new MacBook Pro Retina.
The converter's magnet attaches to the power supply's old MagSafe connector very effectively. The magnetic connection between the converter and the MacBook isn't as strong. The problem is that the old MagSafe adapter and the converter is now long enough that leverage makes it very easy to disconnect from the MacBook. This is very annoying, especially if you hold the MacBook in your lap while using it. …

Great way to extend the life of existing adapters
Does what it claims to. Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but th Does what it claims to. Small and unobtrusive, works great with the Thunderbolt display. I'd rather be able to swap cords, but this is better than replacing the monitor!
As for the other reviewer complaining about having to replace his existing adaptors - that doesn't make sense. His existing adaptors work with his older machines, and with this they now work with his new machine. The only potential problem is if he is planning on a new location with only the new power adaptor... Inconvenient, sure - but hardly forced to buy a bunch of new stuff to replace his existing. …

Use it every day and it works like a charm

I have to use it with my retina macbook pro in order I've been using the same one for over 2 years now with absolutely 0 problems. I have to use it with my retina macbook pro in order to connect to the thunderbolt displays we use at my work, so my laptop pretty much doesn't move while it's plugged in. I would say if you are only trying to use your laptop on your actual lap, go buy an actual adapter for your computer (what happened to the one that came with your laptop by the way?). But if you use it on a desk this thing works great. We've had multiple in the office for over 2 years and never have had to replace them. …

I'm must be missing something here with MS2???
With my old Mac Book Air, I had the "L" shaped MagSafe 1. No worries at all. When I bought the Mac Book Pro (retina) 13.3", it ca With my old Mac Book Air, I had the "L" shaped MagSafe 1. No worries at all. When I bought the Mac Book Pro (retina) 13.3", it came with Mag Safe 2. Now the "jutting out" design of this interface means that whenever I sit crossed legged on my bed and use my laptop as a LAPTOP should be used (let's go back in history and name Apple notebooks "laBtops", because they could only be used in the LAB), the slightest move in posture dislocates the MS2 from the notebook. WHICH DRUNK IMBECILE WAS CHOSEN to design this in retrograde manner? Can't some things be left alone, as they have neared perfection, as was MS1 in my case. The L shape of the MS 1 made sure that even trying to yank it out wouldn't work. With MS2, a simple move of my thigh, and there we have it, it's lying NEXT to the ProBook, rather than charging it. If Bill Gates made a mistake by stating, "Who would ever need more than 640KB RAM", then MS2 is the biggest technological Faux Pas till date. My 7 year old daughter can come up with a million brighter ideas. FIRE THAT A**hole. I've stopped using Mac Laptops since then, and have switched to WIndows Laptops (let's re-migrate folks..... call Han, Leia and Luke to join forces with The Emperor. Can't wait for WIndows 10 Pro to be launched. LONG LIVE THE EVIL EMPIRE AND DARTHY!!!!! At least they don't goof up on common sense things. …

Is it better to get the adapter or just buy a new Magsafe 2 power supply?

My advice would be to buy one of these due to the extreme difference in cost. Use one of your old ch My advice would be to buy one of these due to the extreme difference in cost. Use one of your old chargers plugged in to your desk at home (or wherever you normally charge at home) with this adapter.
Save your new adapter for "mobile" use... take it with you when you travel.
I have my old, original magsafe adapter that came with my Jan 2006 macbook pro plugged in at my desk at home. It's lasted so long simply because it stays in that one location and never moves. So leave your old charger at home with the magsafe adapter since the old one is more likely to fail if you continue to use/abuse it (simply because it's older). …

First check if you TV has a VGA port on the back. If it does purchase a VGA adapter for your iPad and connect it.
If you don't have a VGA, check for a HDMI port. Purchase a HDMI adapter for your iPad and connect it.
The last way is the more expensive way, purchase a Apple TV and connect your iPad wirelessly to it. …
