    Total rip-off

    • Written by Marco J from glastonbury

    I'm on my fourth one of these. How can apple justify charging this amount for something that has the durability of a plastic fork?! No wonder they're the biggest company in the world! After 20 years on macs I'm migrating to Pc's for this and other reasons

    Only giving one star because zero isn't possible

    8 Good Years

    • Written by Sherea J from Philadelphia

    I purchased my Macbook Pro in 2011. I've never had to replace the adaptor until today.
    Needless to say it's money well spent on a quality item.

    Worst Power Cord Ever Overpriced!

    • Written by Brian H from new port richey

    Today I bought my 6th Magsafe60w powercord at best buy for 79.99$ for my mid 2012 macbook pro 13". I love my MBP but every year and a half my powercord goes bad. My first one frayed at the transformer and I let it go for too long and it finally shorted out and my MBP restarted. Bought a new cord and for about 6 months I had this annoying problem with my MBP restarting whenever I was running data intensive programs. Found out the Short circuit from my old power cord destroyed a ram stick. So since then any time my cord would get a bit warped I would replace until the last two... The last two cords have malfunctioned at the actual magnetic port. The first one the metal ring came off and the last that I just replaced today... The springs behind the copper pins failed. Now the fact that Ive had my MBP for 7 years is amazing. The 79.99 for a new cord for the 6th time is getting ridiculous. Apple Please lower the price of this part. Once this power cord goes bad thats it. This problem has had a serious impact on me purchasing a new model.

    Have replaced charger twice - Awful quality

    • Written by Blayke M from Frankston

    Disappointing how badly designed the weak spots of the charger are.

    Where do I begin

    These chargers are very, very weak. They often break with MINIMAL use. They always fry and I thought it was just the wattage but NOPE. It breaks and burns more easy and apple NEVER fixes them. They continue to break and fry and THIS IS MY THIRD PURCHASE.

    DO NOT buy this easily breakable charger, get some protection like a braided one.

    A Joke

    • Written by tia D from Sacramento

    apple really needs to get it together. it feels like i'm buying a charger once a year this point and that's beyond ridiculous. after i paid over 2000 dollars for a laptop to keep having to shell out cash on an 80+ dollar laptop charger is laughable. this time there wasn't even exposed wiring from their cheap rubber that houses the wiring and it somehow still? gave out? i can't even make sense of it. the charger is in perfect condition and yet it refuses to charge my laptop. i'm over this.

    Seriously, what the actual heck.

    • Written by Mike C from Burke

    $80 for a cord that breaks in a week. No matter how well you take care of this cord it will always break. There is nothing you can do.

    I cannot believe that they're charging $80 for a cord that won't last for a week. You'll end up buying hundreds of these.

    Extremely poor quality and very expensive

    • Written by Geoff H from Ongar

    As with so many others the cable frays/disintegrates at the MagSafe connector. This is the second time this has happened and given the scorch marks around the disintegrated cable outer it could easily have started a fire. If this was on a car there would be an urgent recall. Come on Apple if you are going to charge so much then at least make it a quality durable item.

    • Written by Wendie L from Yugan

    i am a student, I can't afford to buy your expensive power adapter with such a horrible quality anymore! The reality made me know they are designed for being broken, normal charger lasts more time than you apple power adapter!!!! COMPLETELY RUBBISH.

    I've had FOUR of these in the past 6 years. I'm about to buy my 5th. Its a terrible design. The part that connects the brick is why it always breaks. Not only are these way overpriced, but that's a huge amount of waste for the earth. It's disgusting that they design something like this to just make more money off of consumers. I used to have a PC. The charger lasted the entirety of that PC's life. I'm switching back to windows!!

    The adapter stinks

    • Written by Michelle T from Bay Shore

    I've had to doctor this second adapter after a few months, I can't doctor it up any more. At $80 a pop they should let forever.

    Garbage product that is overpriced! Better to buy a knock off for 30$ because it lasts longer than this trash.

    60W Magsafe Power Adapter is junk

    • Written by Bill D from Pipersville

    I'm not ordering my 3rd or 4th adapter. The adapter isn't abused and the computer isn't used for travel or transported very often. For $80 the adapter shouldn't require an annual, or more frequent, replacement.

    Genuinely ruining my life.

    • Written by Charlie K from Lydbury North

    Never would I ever recommended Apple products to anyone.
    I'm a student, so my laptop is very essential for me, so I have had to fork out a ton of money buying new chargers for my MacBook because they keep breaking!! I've been through two in the last year, seriously so so over priced for something that's totally unreliable and doesn't work.
    Would recommended getting a knock off one, they're still awful too but at least you won't be spending a fortune everytime this thing inevitably breaks. Apple plz sort ur shiz out :(

    It's good enough

    • Written by Zubaoyi Y from Champaign

    I got my laptop in summer 2012 and the charger that came with lasted me until late 2015. I was a bit reluctant to get a new one from apple that cost $80 so I went with off brand stuff on amazon. I went through 2 or 3 of them (about $20-30 per) and each lasted me maybe 3 months. I did my math then and took another chance with the apple charger early 2016. It still works fine even though at one specific place the cable's wearing pretty thin. So I'm going to order another one soon just in case. But yeah, it seems that the apple charger can be pretty consistently depended on for 3 years, which is not bad at all considering my other options.

    • Written by Adam O from West Des Moines

    We've landed on mars. Apple can't make a power supply that lasts more than a year with minimal movement. I've had 2 blow up on me and I'm now having to buy I think my 5th because the magnet keeps dislodging from the cord and sticking in the computer. I've glued them, wrapped them with heat shrink, crimped them back in, but all in all it is just a terrible design. I usually have my MacBook sitting on the table at work and it doesn't get touched until I leave for the day and I always wrap the cord back on itself. The only time it gets any sort of rigorous use is if I'm sitting on the couch using it which is rare since my iMac is only 1 room away and way better to use for photo editing. If you are going to use these there should be an extra disconnect so instead of having to buy the entire power brick I could easily replace the cable that attaches into it much like the other side of the extender cord. Then again, how would you get your $80 a year I suppose.

    Trash 60W Power Adapters

    • Written by Alex S from Colorado Springs

    Apple loves to just spurt out products without reading reviews and how they perform, this company's altogether gone to in the garbage. If this useless company spent just a few days a week to pay attention to customer service they might learn something. Tired of constantly buying adapters so I'm switching to PC.
