    works as intended

    • Written by Ulas S from Dayton

    One of them was broken like the other reviewers indicated but when I used 2 adaptors one for home and one for work, I have been using it for the last 2 years without any breakage in the cable. I love the magnetic capability, it is softer than the first itreration, which saved my laprop many times. Thus, I disagree with the other reviewers in this respect. I dis not like the 90 degree version since that was dragging the laptop and laptop could fell to the ground, I had this issue several times. Last, I believe this is much better design than usb-c based too. What can be improved: well, the end cable does not have to be this thin, then all the problem will go away, people do not have to wrap the cable but add a "taper-based" cable holder as other PC companies like Lenovo. I think Apple can improve many laptop items by checking Lenovo site and testing them like best keyboards. Eliminate this "thin" madness, then everything will be ok.

    DO NOT LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS

    • Written by Kasia P from mississauga

    Holy Moley, when my original macbook charger was chewed away by my cats, I was devastated. However, I went on apple.ca and read the reviews for their replacement chargers after wasting money on cheap third party options. I was mortified by the now over 500 negative reviews! I had no choice but to buy the apple charger, and I have had it for well over 4-5 months now and NO PROBLEMS. People keep saying the cord frys, and I must say, all these reviewers must be morons because no cords have fried for me! I think people are extremely reckless with their expensive accessories and that's why they find themselves constantly paying more money. I want you to know, if you are interested in buying this, DO NOT HESITATE! Unless you are unable to do simple functions and protect your expensive items, this product will not fail you.. and I know sometimes you may be unlucky and you might get a buggy cord, but it's super easy to exchange for a new one! Happy charging.

    Perfectly fine

    • Written by Brandon T from Gladstone

    I'm buying a second one for home use, and I'm really not sure why there are so many negative reviews for these power adapters (and all of Apple's cables for that matter). I've had my two current MacBook Pros for 11 and 3 years, and I'm still using the original chargers for them! They've been taken with me on airplanes, to work and to school, and apart from some grime and scratches, these adapters are perfect. There's really no need for the poor ratings, except maybe for the high price.

    -The magnets are just fine, pull some of the cord up and leave some slack next to you, it's supposed to pop out easily so the computer isn't accidentally pulled off a table or lap. And you don't want powerful magnets in the laptop anyway.
    -When you pull the plug out from the outlet, grasp the head of the plug, don't yank the cord. Do the same with the magnet side. This applies to any cable, from any manufacturer.

    Seriously, I've had one for 11 years now, and it shows no signs of the damage people report. I'm not saying every single one is perfectly manufactured, things happen, but I think many of the issues people have are from neglect/mishandling.

    A victim of selection bias?

    • Written by Daniel E from Reading

    I guess the millions of people (like me) who never experience any problems with their power supply don't ever have a reason to come here and leave a good review for it! So the average rating here is probably very misleading.

    I'm just here because I want to buy a spare one. The one that came with my MacBook is working fine after two years.

    Fixed the problem of NOT CHARGING

    • Written by Adrian P from Hong kong

    I discovered if the charging LED doesn't come on, I (followed the instructions and) unplugged the power adapter for 60 seconds before reconnecting, I was able to use it again. 2006 T type 85W adapter on a 2014 MBP.

    2 Years Of Use and Still Going!

    • Written by Brad J from Padthaway

    I purchased a MBPr a couple of years ago and after browsing for possibly an extra charger I come across how many bad reviews this product has received. From my experience it's great, my device has been saved more then enough times to have paid for itself.. The ease in which the charger just rips out with very little force applied to it is pretty cool! The cable itself is still going strong! I've travelled a fair bit between Aus and Canada, but yet.. Still have not seen any signs of fatigue to the cord. Ever since I purchased it the cord has found itself sliding along wooden floating floors moving from side to side and room to room. Going from the reviews I think I must have hit the jackpot with mine.. Or... It's just a case of no one writes a review unless they have criticism to share

    Great Product can't wait to see what you guys come up with next!

    FUNCTIONALLY BRILLIANT!!!

    • Written by Jeremy B from North Shore City

    I am very surprised at the number of people who have described weak coupling of their MagSafe connections to their laptops. I assert the most likely explanation for their experiences would be either; they have received the 2-5% of product manufactured that are deficient (as happens in all products) and the magnets are weaker than intended. Or; another possibility is that the magnets have been weakened due to being impacted (a well known phenomenon of magnets). My explanation why there are so many bad vs good reviews is that for those of us who have well functioning examples there is less motivation and no incentive to get online and write a review. Those frustrated by their experience posses motive and motivation to express such.

    My MagSafe 2 power adapter is awesome. It holds on very strong and has NEVER been unintentionally disconnected. My example performs perfectly and is an obvious improvement in design and function over the previous version. Its hold is stronger than that of my 2006 17" MBP, which occasionally did come out unnecessarily, but still within my expectations.

    I assert this product is well resolved and that many of those with bad experiences have unfortunately received the 2-5% that are lemons. Get them exchanged under warranty and see how you go. Unless the cause of those problems is a weak receiving magnet in your laptop, which is another possibility…

    DON’T LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS!

    • Written by Michael M from Mississauga

    My charger has lasted me 5 years and it STILL works like new. DO NOT leave your charger plugged into your laptop when its fully charged, unplug it to avoid burning out your charger. This will also stop the “overheating” problem. Just be smart, dont overcharge.

    Work as expected

    • Written by Wen Hao C from San Francisco

    You might want to just buy the 85W one even if you have a Macbook Air, as it is fine to use a higher rated power supply than the original unit (e.g. 65W or 45W)

    No problems at all

    • Written by Sher S from GREENSBORO

    I was so surprised to see all of the negative reviews. I've had mine for a year and it has been flawless. The only thing I would like is the ability to buy it without the extension cord (less expensive), so I can keep an extra one in my car for emergencies when away from home. I usually have my Mac on my desk and keep it plugged in most all the time. I don't know if the way I use it affects the good performance I've had or not but wanted to mention it.

    Great Charger!!

    • Written by Luke K from Cranleigh

    I'm not sure what the other reviewers have been doing with their charger but mine has lasted 3 years so far. Much better that the terrible ones I've had with PC's over the years. I can recommend from the other reviews that if you regularly charge you Macbook in 2 locations that you get 2 chargers as no cables like being wrapped up in a bag!

    Good quality charger!

    • Written by Michael D from Uxbridge

    I've absolutely no idea why this product has so many negative reviews - I've had my MacBook for more than two years now and haven't had to replace the charger at all, it is still in great condition (apart from the white colour being a bit darker now obviously).

    • Written by Armen M from Tunbridge Wells

    If you need a charger then buy this, simple as that. Mine has lasted two years, and so has my father's and colleague's. Not sure what people do to their chargers but mine is fine.

    Ordering a second one now because I'm tired of lugging it around.

    Harsh handlers?

    • Written by Stuart R from twickenham

    I feel these reviews are somewhat weighted towards people that have had negative experiences with these units. After all, the millions of people that have had no problems with their adapter are unlikely to leave a review here just to say "all is well".
    I have been using various MacBook models with MagSafe adapters since they came out. I have *never* had an adapter fail on me in anyway whatsoever. I have not had a concern about overheating nor have I ever had any connectors fail or cable insulation wear and expose bare wire. I can only put this down to a couple of things:

    1) Do NOT remove the connector from the computer by pulling (even gently) on the cable itself. Remove it by gripping the metal or plastic connector and pulling up or down
    2) Do leave a bit of slack before you wrap the cable around the charger's built-in cable management prongs. Watch some youtube videos for tips on this.This will prevent the cable fraying where it comes out of the charger unit

    My sister has gone through three adapters in perhaps 3-5 years. They have all failed with worn insulation, exposed cable and eventual shorting out. This can't be a coincidence. She swears that she doesn't abuse them, but I just don't buy it.
    Again, I've never had an Apple cable in the last 10 years fail on me. My original USB -> Dock connector cable that came with my iPad 2 is only now just beginning to show signs of wear around the Dock connector. That's not bad for almost six years of regular use.
    I expect a MagSafe adapter to last me the whole lifetime of any MacBook I buy. I haven't been proven wrong yet.

    Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter

    • Written by Holley H from Green cove springs

    This is a great product. Have had mine for 4 years. I am buying my third Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter because I like them so much and want to have one in my bedroom, my home office and now finally , my living room. It is just so much easier if I do not have to unplug and bring it with me. I heartily recommend this product. never had any problem at all.
