Apple 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display)

  • Overview

    The 60W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also 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 lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook 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 you 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.

    Compatible with MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display.

      rubber on the cord rips open

      I've had this macbook charger for almost 2.5 years and the rubber on the cord started ripping open in just one year. It's truly disappointing as my old magsafe I've had this macbook charger for almost 2.5 years and the rubber on the cord started ripping open in just one year. It's truly disappointing as my old magsafe charger from 2010 is still functional and hasn't ripped open. The quality of the charger declined so far where your older models are outliving the newer ones by almost 5 years is completely outrageous. I've taped up the opening with electrical tape since it's expensive to replace. Obviously these things are made to fall apart so people will have to keep buying it over and over. It's these little petty things that keeps me from wanting to support apple products other than the macbook pro.

      Wish I could rate it 0 stars..

      My MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display (Late 2013) came with this Magsafe 2 power adaptor. Not long after use, it started yellowing, which was no big deal. My MacBook Pro 13-inch with Retina Display (Late 2013) came with this Magsafe 2 power adaptor. Not long after use, it started yellowing, which was no big deal. Then it started fraying at the end that connects to my MacBook, as well as throughout the cable. It is extremely unreliable, and I have to keep checking to see if it is still charging! If a replacement power adaptor cost around $30-$50, it would not be as big of a deal. But, $80! What the heck, Apple! I spend $2000 on a laptop, and then $80 for each power adaptor??

      Really Bad Quality

      I'm about to purchase my second Power adapter because less than a year into using my first one, (purchased in late 2015 btw, and I only started using it consist I'm about to purchase my second Power adapter because less than a year into using my first one, (purchased in late 2015 btw, and I only started using it consistently in early 2017), it was yellowing and fraying to no end. Eventually, the rubber tore right open and it stopped working on my Macbook Pro completely. I wish I got to experience having an older model of a MagSafe because apparently, they outlast some of these trashier newer models. Replacing this thing has been months in the making, as this student life does not come with enough deposable income to replace a broken laptop charger :( 3/10

      Utter Garbage

      The rubber on the cord seems to be made of the chewed gum of Apple execs and starts to deteriorate less than a year after purchasing. Don't purchase it from the The rubber on the cord seems to be made of the chewed gum of Apple execs and starts to deteriorate less than a year after purchasing. Don't purchase it from them, buy it from somewhere else and don't give them money for a consistently faulty product that they will not replace.

      3 Cords In Two Years! Garbage.

While the machine itself has been work Another one here with a split cord -- 3rd one in one year! I travel with my MacBook and so am always on the go with this. While the machine itself has been working perfectly since 2014 the cord is garbage, having the same problems as everyone else here: Rubber splits apart, wires exposed and frayed. I am now about to order my FOURTH cord and am not buying a Mac cord again. I'd rather chance it with a $25 secondary market cord or used from Ebay. Come on Apple read your reviews.
