    Lasted quite a while I guess... Now broken for no reason.

    I've had this charger since I first got my Macbook Air roughly 4-5 years ago. I have not had a problem with it until now. The cord just began to melt right where it attached to the adapter and now it is totally useless. It did last a lot longer than some other reviews are saying, and i've NEVER had the adapter disconnect from the power cord, but now it's time to get a new one.

    Good but not good enough

    I own a mac 2014 13'3 inch. (macbookAIR), i also own the new space grey 2015 model:

    For the 2014 charger:
    The design is cool, the wire thin and white, but IT COSTS WAY TO MUCH for some plastic and copper wire with LED lights and a bit of matte metal at the end.
    The magnet is super weak and does not hold when the computer is moved from one point to another and the wire is also very brittle. The plastic can easily rip and the wire inside is also easy to break.
    The charger itself is weak and does not charge quickly.
    Also, when charging for periods of over 30 minutes, the charger will get extremely hot and it seems dangerous to charge for any longer.

    I give this product a 3/5 because it does it's job, but only to a certain extent, apple should consider lowering prices for it, and consider a stronger, more durable charger overall. They should also give up on the magnet and actually use something that goes into the mac and stays there!

    Thanks guys and i hope this was helpful

    I've had the same power cord for 4 years, but seldom traveled with it, and it worked fine. Then, I started putting it in my backpack almost daily and it broke after a couple weeks...

    Wears easily

    I've had my macbook air for a little over a year now and I am still using the charger that came with it, which based on other reviews seems to be longer than most. However where the wire connects to the square the rubber casing has began to rip and reveal the wires witch worries me significantly especially considering I hardly ever move the charger or put strain on it. The charger is mostly always in the same spot in my bedroom and I plug in my computer every night without any strain on the cord. Also where the charger connects to the computer the magnet in the charger seems to be losing strength as I have found it harder to keep the charger connected to the computer.

    Apple makes such great products. However, the MagSafe Chargers that comes with all the Mac Laptops (Which are the same as this one, but offered seperately) are somewhat of lower quality. I have two MacBook Pro's and one MacBook Air and after about 9-11 months the part of the cord that you can wind up on the square Load carrier always comes separated from the "protective neck" ( I do not t know what else to call it, but any Mac Laptop Owner know's what I'm talking about) on the cable that plugs into the laptop. I have had to have each one replaced at least once. I find that a little excessive Because I take extra good care of my device's and their accessories. I aways leave a little bit of slack in the cord when winding it up on the square part of the charger. I am however very thankful of Apple and their OUTSTANDING customer service have replaced each one at no cost to me when they have gone bad, no questions asked or any type of hassle that you would get with the other Brand X's out there that sell junk. Apple you are KING and I am very very thankful for putting out such GREAT computers. Just please take a look at the design of this charger and change the design of it.
