    The charger is very sucky. I've bought 2 new ones already in 4 years...

    This power adapter makes me want to break-up with Apple

    Dear Apple - I don't want a better MacBook Pro. I want a power adapter with some strength to its cord. Bending and pinching happens ... design a cord that can take a little bit of that. I haven't decided if I'm going to purchase by 4th adapter or switch back to a PC.

    Time to read the reviews on your adapters, Apple!

    Wow. I could not be more disappointed in this adapter. Seriously, I have had to purchase two in less than a year--and I'm so careful with my cord! Why hasn't Apple listened to the cacophony of posts lamenting the poor quality of this product? Complaints about the poor quality, overheating, and lack of durability of Apple chargers literally litter the internet, yet Apple fails to make improvements. I guess it will actually take a fire or tragedy to elicit a response. As a lifetime Apple user (laptops, phones, Ipads, etc.), I'm seriously wondering if the Wizard behind the curtain actually ever listens to the people in the Emerald City anymore. Poorly done, Apple--poorly done.

    Worst electrical charger in my life!

    This charger is the worst, most over priced electrical equipment I have ever bought. It only lasted me 9 months. Never left the house and never abused. This is a hidden expense and defect that apple is not trying to fix

    Apple 60W MagSafe Charger for MacBook Pro 13 inch

    I've only had my Mac for about a year and a half. My laptop works fine but my charger just all of a sudden stopped working, now I have to buy another one. Mac's are supposed to be the most reliable brand of computers out there but they really need to improve their chargers.

    How Many Apple Chargers Can a Girl Break in a Year?

    The answer is 2. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of the charger. I've purchased 2 chargers already and I'm going to have to purchase a new one soon seeing has how the cable close to the L shape is torn... it's only a matter of time before I have to invest in a new cable. I should have stayed with PCs... the chargers are cheaper and I can use the new office 365.

    bad design

    the wire near the magnetic connector is very weak. it has worked less than three years. I bought a replacement one and had the same issue in 2 years. I used a siemen laptop for 8 years before macbook and did not have any single charger issue. we deserve a high quality product for the money that we paid for it.

    Mac adapters are the worst!!!

    My old T adapter broke after 3 years so I bought the new and improved L adapter and 2 years later it broke again. Seriously, do you really think I want to buy a new adapter every year??? You should rethink your design!!!

    BTW I should be free to post my review in my own words and not being censored, because I'm not being disrespectful just stating a fact about your product!!!

    apple 60w magsafe power adapter

    Terrible product. Connection does not make good contact with the computer. The fit is awkward . The original charger fit perfectly and worked well. This deserves a minus rating.

    Other laptops have power adapters that outlast the computer

    I've had such laptops, which were otherwise inferior to this macbook.

    I'm on my second power adapter since 2008 and I treat it extremely gently (but note I do travel with it about ever other day, and sometimes more). Nonetheless, the obviously-too-skinny part of the chord is cracking in multiple places now. I wrap it tightly in electrical tape. I think I will have to buy a third one before I'm ready for a new laptop.

    There are good suggestions for easy fixes in these reviews (e.g. make it replaceable, and maybe let some company sell a thicker version). I'm not usually inclinded to suspect companies of unethical behavior, but for this it is the only theory I know.

    Apple You need to do better

    Apple Macbook works well but this is the third power adapter i own that is not working. i am very disappointed. They need to do like HP and have a simple power cord. I'll give it a 1/4 star

    Dead already?!

    I've had my MacBook Pro for a measly 3 months and this power cord already croaked. Really?! I was very dismayed to see this has happened to so many others. I also couldn't believe the price tag for a product that is clearly not meeting customers needs! I typically love my Apple products, but this is a ridiculous inconvenience to have so soon after purchase. I am left both unimpressed and irritated.

    Nokia 3390 had a superior power adapter...in 1996

    I still have a working power adapter from my 1990's Nokia 3390 cell phone. However, my Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter is no longer working, because some of the pins do not deploy and make contact with the MacBook like they should. The magnetic connection is a brilliant idea, however it was unfortunately not a good design to have such fragile spring-pins to transfer power. I will NOT be buying a replacement from Apple, I will be purchasing a replacement adapter from a 3rd party.

    Macbook charger

    The macbook is fantastic and has served me well for five long years, but the price and quality of the power supply is absurd. The design of the macbook accessory is inherently flawed and ends up breaking every year. Surprising that a company so committed to progressive design engineers a product so unsatisfactory. If Apple expects their customers to believe they are the technology of the future, they need to focus on solutions to these basic problems that rapidly erode their prestigious reputation. If they expect me to pay $80 for another charger when this POS breaks, I'm saving my money and switching to different company.

    cheaply made, too expensive to replace

    The wire is scrawny and frays in no time. The wire shouldn't be so thin that a cat can chew through it. Whatever happened to making thick power cables that lasted years and years? The price for a replacement is criminal. Love my MBP, but shame on you Apple for this atrocity of a charge cable. I hope I don't electricute myself with my frayed cable.

    LIKE FIRE HAZARDS? LOVE WASTING MONEY?

    WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE PIECE OF GARBAGE.

    THE L-SHAPED ATTACHMENT SEEMS TO BE DESIGNED FOR THE CORD TO RIP OUT OF IT. MY EXPOSED CORD SHOOTS LASER BEAM SPARKS WHEN I PLUG IT IN. THAT THE WORD 'SAFE' IS USED IN THE PRODUCT NAME IS PREPOSTEROUS. IF I WANTED TO START A PAPER FIRE ON MY DESK, THE MAGSAFE WOULD BE MY FIRST CHOICE FOR GUARANTEED PYROTECHNICS.

    APPLE SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GIVE THESE AWAY. I WISH I HAD BIGGER CAPS SO I COULD ESCALATE MY EXPRESSION OF FRUSTRATION AT THE REPLACEMENT PRICE (THOSE TWO WORDS WOULD HAVE BEEN WAY BIGGER). I GUARANTEE THIS THING IS MADE FOR $0.58 ALL IN. I WILL NOT EVEN SPEAK OF THE PRICE WE - WHO HAVE COUGHED UP THOUSANDS IN OUR COMMITMENT TO ALL THINGS MAC - ARE EXPECTED TO PAY SO OUR BIG INVESTMENT PIECES WILL CONTINUE TO FUNCTION.

    IT'S CLEAR APPLE DOESN'T READ THESE THINGS SO ALL I CAN SAY IS EFF THIS. SERIOUSLY.

    It couln't be worse.

    We are using these PSUs at our school to charge the teacher's MBPs 13" (70 in total), so we have at least 70 of these and 2/3rd of them is having the broken cable problem either at the PSU's side or the device's side. It it is not appearing to get any better.

    Nothing strange.

    Don't get confused about the amount of negative feedback on this adapter. It works fine. It is not rugged. Meaning it is not capable of withstanding rough handling. That means the cable too. I've realized my mistake when I've ruined the cable of my first adapter. Second adapter lasted for 6 years, and its cable is still intact. I've seen people who strengthen their cable with heatshrinks, springs and similar attachments, but 6 years of service suggests that the cable can last long without these. If you are taking your MacBook to work and back everyday, it may be a good idea to keep a secondary adapter at work, saves you from carrying your adapter and your cable from winding/unwinding twice per day. Finally, the overall negative rating of this product is IMHO because satisfied customers don't care about rating as much as disappointed customers do. After all, every MacBook user is using at least one such adapter.
