Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)

Get help buying. or call 1 800 MY-APPLE.
  • Overview

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC cord is provided with the adapter for maximum cord length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect traveling companion, the adapter has a clever design which allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

      Power adaptors do not last

      Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. S Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

      Dear Apple

      I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple yea I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months. Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month! I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

Have had it a total of maybe, 2-3 weeks and if I want to charge my laptop the cable has to be put into a very specific position. Also the metal head that connects to your macbook gets very hot and can burn you. I will be requesting a replacement and would hope that apple would stop using cheap materials and over charging because of their brand.

      Absolutely useless

Fo I am disgusted at the price of this charger compared to the durability. I have had this charger for a grand total of two months and it has completely broken. For weeks the charger has been going off with the slightest bit of movement and now it is totally unresponsive. I am dumbfounded at the fact that these £80 chargers are our only options and they are lasting no more than two to three months. Classic Apple charging absurd prices for sub-standard products.

      Terrible!!!!

      I have bought two of these over the past 5 years. They are so expensive and break so easily.

The chord side where the charger box is is so brittle and snaps so easily, making it so you can't charge it at all. I've only had this charger for a year and a half. Boo apple
