    Serious Problems

    • Written by Joseph B from Winona

    I have been an Apple lover since day one. Everything i own is Apple. However, I have been having issues with their cords, computers, really everything. It is a shame how fast a company can fall from grace. It truly makes me sad. I wish I could post pictures so everyone could see how bad this cords really gets after such a short time frame.

    Worst product from Apple ever

    • Written by Abhirup D from Troy

    I have been using a macbook air for less than a year, and I already need to get a third charger. Tells a lot about the build quality of this charger. Seriously Apple, this is really bad! You've been nothing but a disappointment to your customers in this regard. I wish I could give zero stars to this instead of one star.

    Charger cord wires exposed.

    • Written by Kimiko M from Fresno

    My charger cord has unraveled it still works but I run the risk of being Electrocuted from the wires being exposed just to charge your product. This is your product and you want me to spend $79.00 for a replacement. I should be able to return this to the store and have my chord replaced for free. I had my Macbook Pro Since 2012 and this is my third laptop from Mac. Mac WTH WTH! your computers cost way too much to have faulty cords. Not only is it dangerous its inconvenient. The latest cords are faulty I have been using your products for over 10 years but you have to step it up for your customers. I don't spend over $1000 for faulty products. You should reimburse your customers for this.

    As usual, terrible charger

    • Written by Victoria G from Dallas

    Once again, the charger for my laptop has come apart. This has happened with EVERY.SINGLE.MAC.I.HAVE.EVER.HAD. Why won't you just make thicker chargers? I have to keep repurchasing chargers for computers because a design flaw causes them to come apart.

    magNOtic charger

    • Written by Cara M from Phoenixville

    I have been having issues with this charger since the beginning, but tonight, I reached my limit. This magnetic charger DOES NOT stay put! Nothing quite like getting settled in bed with your computer to realize your charger has mysteriously disconnected due to the ridiculously bad magnetic nature of it. Obviously,there is no avoiding this. Apple laptops are the best, and this charger is necessary to work the computer. I just pray that one day, apple will create a charger that actually locks into place, like the iphone 4 charger used to lock into the phone. Please improve this product.

    Obviously faulty and ridiculously overpriced. My admiration for Apple is as frayed and broken as the cord on my power adapter.

    Who designed this?

    • Written by Diego D from Doral

    After my 3rd charger I just feel the urge to let the world know this is by far the worst piece of tech ever created by any serious brand. The fact that it is so overpriced makes me think it's all part of a big sad joke.

    Bad quality - breaks easily

    • Written by Tuo-wei D from BALWYN NORTH

    Rubber around wire at base of adaptor split within 3 years of careful use - just outside warranty period. Poor.

    • Written by Nia R from Los Angeles

    I guess my charger lasted longer than most of the reviews I read, nonetheless it is very poorly made and no longer works. I wish Apple would step it up with the quality of ALL chargers as I also have to buy the iPhone cords in bulk. It's like they are made to be disposable.

    Overpriced fragile POS

    • Written by David C from Van Nuys

    I have gotten used to purchasing two of these a year. They are unbelievably delicate chargers. I don't have any problems with any other type of cable for any device that I won, but for some reason I keep having to replace these overpriced MacBook chargers.

    At this point, I've spent enough money on chargers to buy me a new MacBook! What Apple calls normal wear and tear on these chargers is far beyond what I'd classify as normal.

    Stupid charger

    • Written by Minh B from Leesburg

    If there is an option for 0 star, i would choose that option.
    My 3rd one guys. They tend to stop working after one year warranty. I will stop buying apple products. Waste of money and time.

    Broke after a year and a half

    • Written by Sachi V from Glebe

    I've got an 11 inch mac-air that I use for school and pretty much everything else. It has major power drain, so I generally need it or I have a dead computer. And, about a month ago, the wire casing near the charger end split, and now, about an hour or two ago, the thing has bit the dust. Not cool guys. So not cool. I've had iphone chargers that have literally lasted for more than 5 years, and the mac book one, which I actually need on a daily basis, is the one to break? Seriously?

    Pretty design is simply not robust enough

    • Written by Charles W from London

    I have used laptops for decades and the only power supplies I have had fail are from Apple. Oh, they're very pretty to look at, but these are for portable devices, so they need to be more robust than they are. This design simply doesn't stand up to the normal rigours of a device that lives in a bag, is constantly deployed and re-deployed. I've had to order a few over the years which, along with the many negative reviews, would suggest that this is a well known problem, which is disappointing.

    Is it too much to ask for a PSU that outlives the device is powers?

    Worst Power Cord Ever and Weak magnetic cord.

    • Written by Ellis M from Los Angeles

    It' s Saturday afternoon and after a day of play, time to work...but guess what? MacBook Air an otherwise great laptop with great battery life... has a power cord that Apple is charging $79 for and it has to be replaced. I've had the laptop for just a few months and I have little wear on it as I'm still using my MacBook Pro....The cord which is constantly coming undone and falling off is now non-functional and I have to get in the car and drive to purchase another one. Maybe the chord is under warranty. don't know. But I do know that I have no time to wait for a replacement, nor should I have to replace it since it shows zero signs of wear anyhow. I'm now paying with tax almost a hundred more for the computer than when I bought it. And since I haven't loaded the sometimes still required windows software on this computer (some of my media software is windows only) then it's hardly worth it! Yes, a Mac can last up to 5 years where a typical PC won't...but darn... $79 bucks for a new chord?? Apple...read all of the other reviews. I'm not the only complainer here, it seems.

    Break out the Sugru

    • Written by Hugh D from Bath

    I got just over 3 years of fairly gentle use on my MacBook Air 13-inch mid 2012, before my charger cable, like so many other people's, started to fray next to the magnetic connector.

    I'm not going to spend £65 on a new charger - I'm going to spend £8.99 on a packet of white Sugru and patch it up while it still works.

    Don't replace, mend.

    I agree with all of the other negative reviews of Mac's power cord. Junk!! I've wrapped my power cord with electric tape so many times that it is now too heavy for the mag to stay attached.

    I thought Apple had better quality. Certainly their prices would lead you to think that. Just one month out of warranty the battery started to fail. Guess what.....not covered by warranty. Now I have to leave my MacBook charge cable in all the time. I hate to pay $80 for a new cable as I'm sure this is the last Mac I'll ever own.

    Extremely disappointed with Mac products!!!

    Lasted 6 months wtf man

    • Written by Alana E from Perth

    Alright, so I'm a little ticked off. Bought a MacBook Air at the start of the year, and now my charger has decided to breakdown in the pits of assessment week and I'm just like, seriously? I mean, I buy way too much shuff from apple, would you call me a loyal customer? I think you would. But now I'm starting to create a mr. Robot scenario in my head and you guys are beginning to represent evil corp and I'm just not digging that. Anyway I've decided to buy a cheaper remake of this charger, as they're only $25 and will probably last as long as your mess. although I would prefer to buy a charger that will last due to environmental reasons. So I suggest you sort your apple pies out and deliver the goods

    0 stars if i could

    • Written by Ashleigh T from melbourne

    This product is ridiculous. My computer ran out of battery, so I plugged my charger in to charge at up, and.....nothing. There is no visible fraying or bending, and somehow it still will not charge. I can't believe that Apple are asking me to pay $119 for a new charger!!! I don't have that sort of money, but will need to find it in order to charge my computer, so I can turn it on and do my work again. I have no choice. There should be a warranty on these products, as I have never had an Apple charger cable that actually lasts. Exceptionally disappointed.
