    Pretty good charger.

    • Written by Krrish D from Carlingford

    I've had this product for well over 2 years and it is yet to break. It works well and it has lasted long for me. I don't know why other people are having troubles with it. The only issue is the charger disconnects easily.

    Utter Garbage

    • Written by Nicoline J from Høvik

    This charger is 100% garbage.
    I've bought 2 original Apple chargers for my Air and each last for as little as 2-3 months even though they have been treated with care. The product does not deserve the star it has been given but this system does not allow me to give it Zero. .

    This is pure garbage and Apple should replace them with a normal working one. .

    Apple Knows Exactly What They're Doing

    • Written by Grace R from Escondido

    One star is generous. For years, Apple has continued to charge more and more for their products without really making improvements. The quality of this charger is absolutely no different. $79 for a laptop charger when the same thing is sold on Amazon for $15? Give me a break. This is just absolutely ridiculous. Officially switching over to Samsung - BYE.

    This charger is amazing. I recently bought a 2012 MacBook Air from eBay and the charger has been used for years and it works perfectly for my convenience. It is also magnet so when someone trips the cord my laptop doesn't fall with it. Thank you apple.

    Great charger

    • Written by Donna S from New Rochelle

    I have had my laptop since 2015 and I am just now needing a new charger. I was surprised to see so many bad reviews on this product.

    Do little elves eat my Apple power cords when I leave my office?!

    • Written by lauren S from Edgewater

    This will be my 3rd power cord! My power cord doesn't leave my office so I am not sure how this even happened...The design is so bad and what makes it worse is the price I have to pay for a new one!! The price should go down with each power cord a customer has to purchase over the years because at this point I could save the money for a new computer!!!

    Poor connection

    • Written by Susan L from London

    I’ve had mine a month. The light no longer works and the connection is so poor that I’m unable to recharge my computer. Waste of money.

    This product is an embarrassment

    • Written by ALMA B from Chicago

    Such beautifully designed sophisticated Apple technology and power adaptors that come from another world and potentially present danger to life. Just few months after normal use, the rubber insulation peals off the wires, if you touch exposed power wires, you know what possibly can happen. But this is not a new issue. I have been an Apple user for about 15 years at least, bought at least 6 products and this story keeps repeating. Why is it so hard to find insulating material that will not fall apart in just few months? And to pay 75$ is a hefty price for a power cord of terrible quality. I wish I could give it a zero. And I also wish I could attach a photo to show you how mine looks like. Apple, do something!

    On my 3rd power adapter in 3 years

    • Written by Gary B from Leesburg

    Come on Apple-You charge top dollar for EVERYTHING and produce this piece of c--p?
    Mine will not establish a firm connection at the computer and requires a long and sometimes unsuccessful attempt to get it connected- I often get the "green" light but it will not begin to charge until I jiggle the plug ever so gently and then maybe it will establish a charging circuit.
    Pure unadulterated horse puckey to have this occur so soon and so often and to add insult to injury charge me $80 for a new one.
    You have me over a barrel-I have no option other than to get a PC or pay the outrageous price. Not a happy Apple camper

    Still in fine shape after five years

    • Written by Gale A from Liberty

    I still have my MagSafe 2 Power Adapter that came with my 2014 MacBook Air. I have never had a problem with it. It is still working just fine. I was shocked to see so many negative reviews. I must echo the reviewer who said that either I got lucky, or other people are inordinately rough on their equipment. I treat my chargers with care and they have all been good to me.

    This charger is an absolute nightmare

    • Written by Madeline T from Brooklyn

    Since it’s magnetic it always falls out. I can’t leave my Mac to charge ever because I know when I come back I’ll be disappointed to see that the charger once again disconnected from my Mac. This magnetic charger was a terrible idea on apple’s part. This is the most frustrating aspect of life itself. Whenever I try to use my Mac while charging it, it never works out because the charger is constantly falling out. Keep in mind that this is the first and probably only review I will ever write because I feel so passionate about my hate for this product and I feel that it ruins the perks of having a Mac.

    Poor design

    • Written by MANOJ K D from Lexington

    I have used laptop from pretty much every brand in last 20 years. This is the first laptop with charger issue. If I break it is another issue, but getting a smell of wire burn is absolutely a design flaw (and dangerous). I have taken it to Apple store but it was not addressed to my satisfaction. I was suggested to buy a new one..

    The one star reviews are not warranted

    • Written by Isabelle G from Miami Lakes

    I really don't understand why there are so many 1 star reviews on this charger! I have had a Macbook Air since 2014 and I got my current one in August 2017. I have been using the same charger this whole time (around 5 years because the same charger is compatible with both of my Macbook Airs) and it only just started to fray. The only thing that is annoying is that because the charger is magnetic it is constantly getting disconnected by any little thing. I have 2 dogs so this happens all the time! It's not that big of a deal though and it's easy to transport in my backpack for school. It's a good charger in my opinion. Also, I used to have a Dell laptop and that charger only lasted a year. In comparison, this is a really good charger.

    Awful Quality

    • Written by Mandy M from Wolverhampton

    Just about to order my 3rd replacement charger cable in 3 years. My charger never leaves the house so is not screwed up in a bag to get damaged. Far too flimsy, not the usual Apple quality.

    I think this charger is just fine

    • Written by Jackson C from Lakeside

    I was reading the reviews of this charger and the majority of them are all one star and everyone seems to have so much trouble with this charger. I, on the other hand, have never had any issues with it at all. The magnetic aspect is very cool and works just fine. The charger is super fast and has never shorted out on me before. Ive had mine for about 2 years now and it is still completely free of any wear and tear. Also, the green and orange led on the charger is very helpful because I don't like to leave my MacBook plugged in when it is already fully charged, and the green led always lets me know when it is time to unplug.

    Perfect power adapter

    • Written by Jeremy B from Las Vegas

    Ive had 2 power adapters during the life time of my MacBook Air, which has been since 2015, and only have had to replace it once because one of my animals thought it would be a fantastic idea to make it a chew toy. lol. The current power adapter that I have now is almost 4 years old and still works perfectly. The only negative thing I have to say about this power adapter is that it does become alittle yellow on the smaller cord over time and I clean mine often so not really sure what causes it.

    Breaks every year

    I have a MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015). I'm buying my fourth charger due to the wiring breaking open and coming apart over time.

    Not even frayed and having issues

    • Written by Megan W from Davisburg

    Reading all of these reviews I'm no longer surprised, but I've had my MacBook Air for only six months and the charger started to have issues 3mo in. I've been able to get it back to function by the "waiting it out" game... but at this point it's stopped worked all together. No frays, no damage. If this has been an ongoing issue, Apple needs to step up and have some accountability for it already.
