      Great converter IF YOU WANT TO BUY A NEW ONE AFTER ONLY SEVERAL MONTHS!

      Those converters just stop working after several months. Not much to be added here. They don't work! Cons: stop working after a short while. Pros: NONE!!!

These things are constantly failing, some die after a few months of use. Very disappointing.

      Works Off and On, Shouldn't Even be Necessary

      I purchased at 2015 MacBook Pro, alongside a brand new Apple Cinema Display.

First off, I was disappointed to find that Apple hasn't even updated their Cinema Display to work natively with the new MacBook Pro MagSafe port. You'd think after spending over $1,000 on a display, and then $2,000+ on a laptop, that Apple would've had the foresight to update the adapter on the Cinema Display. As a business that prides itself on design and ease-of-use, this is just ridiculous. Secondly, the converter doesn't work reliably. I've purchased two in the last three months. There are no moving parts, so I don't understand the converters lose contact and refuse to charge the laptop after about 30-40 days. My second one is now acting up. The MagSafe converter is the only option to get these two devices to work properly with each other, and with that, you'd think Apple would make something that would work reliably.

      I've owned one for over a year with no problems so far

      I have to admit that I was worried when I bought this due to the horrible reviews.

I bought a MacBook Pro 15" mid 2015 and I have 2 older magsafe chargers from my previous MacBook Pro mid 2009. I have now owned one single adapter for over a year now without any issues. I actually switch it between two older chargers on a regular basis. It has worked without any problems whatsoever. You learn to simply bend it along the longest edge to disconnect it easily. Hopefully this review will keep someone else from worrying like I did, otherwise I wouldn't have waited a year to buy another one with confidence.

Would have preferred not to have to spend that money. I always keep one power cord in office and another in my mobile bag. This might work with smaller screen size laptops. Wish Apple would have made this work for me.
