    I've had my adapter for over 7 years!! No issues

    • Written by Karistian B from Lynwood

    I've had my Power Adapter for over 7 years, and I have had no issues. I recently ran over the cord with my vacuum, and shredded the rubber tubing protecting the cables. Still Works perfectly fine!!! but I am ordering a new one because the wires are exposed.

    Durable when taken care of.

    • Written by Ryan R from Saskatoon

    As the title states, this adapter is durable when you treat it correctly. I have had my current adapter for 5+ years and up until yesterday there was no issue with it. Yesterday I noticed there was an opening in the rubber, but the internal cable had not yet frayed in any way and it was still working as intended.

    For context - this was a daily machine for me, going in and out of my bag, wrapping and unwrapping the cable multiple times, and while it showed signs of use, it is functioning as good as new. Now this isn't to say that everyone that has an issue with these cable mistreats them, but as someone who takes care of all of their cables the same way and rarely replaces them I feel that it should be noted that it may be user error in some cases.

    Obviously every company has quality control issues and Apple is no different, but I think that it is the responsibility of the user as well to take care of their products. Many people complain about the price to replace the adapter, but don't treat it/value it like that in every day use. Either way I hope this is helpful to people who may be in the process of buying a new adapter whether it is this one or for another device. If you treat your stuff well, it will last and this isn't just Apple products. This applies to everything.

    Very Durable when treated correctly.

    • Written by Cory V from Woodstock

    I have used the OEM chord since 2015 it is still working great. It is not as white as it once was, but that's because I have not cleaned it regularly. But I am very happy with this product.

    No issues for 4 years now...

    • Written by Brenna O from Peterborough

    Not sure what everyone else is complaining about, I've had my original charger with my laptop (MacBook Pro, early 2015) since I bought it (in 2015) and the only problems I've had is yellowing of the cable – but that hasn't affected the cables ability to charge my laptop. I bring my laptop with me all over the place, and tend to cram my cable where ever it can fit – it's still holding together perfectly fine. It's been through college, near-homelessness, and different countries without a single problem. One of the best parts about it not breaking is I haven't had to purchase a new one for $100. My only explanation for everyone else's problems with the cable is I must be lucky.

    Lasted long

    • Written by Ariana M from Jurupa Valley

    My MacBook is from 2014 and my charger barely started wearing down about six months ago.. I took care of my charger by making sure I didn't bend it right where it connects to the computer and it lasted me three years. Expensive but one can make it last

    What are people doing to their power cords to make them rip?

    • Written by Andrew S from Lacey

    I love this power cord and wish that Apple would return to something similar. The ability to flip out the corners to wrap the cord around it is genius, and the fact that everything folds up into a compact cube is so convenient. I have the original one that came with my late 2013 MacBook Pro and it is only just now showing signs of wear. My only complaint is that the cord turns grey over time because it gets dirty but in terms of functionality and reliability it has never failed. Considering that mine is five years old and I am only just now thinking of replacing it should be telling to anyone looking at buying it. It will last. The people who are complaining about it breaking have to be abusing it. I travel a lot, wrap mine up and unravel it a lot, throw it in the bottom of my bag and toss it in the back of my car a lot. There is nothing wrong with it save that of the dirt. If you take care of your things this cord will work great. I wish Apple would reintroduce the ability to fold out corners to warp up the cords.

    No problems

    • Written by KAREN K from VESTAVIA HILLS

    I bought a refurbished Macbook Pro 3+ years ago, so I don't know if the power adapter was new or the original. Whatever I have has worked for me, and I have no complaints.

    Top Notch - Zero Issues

    • Written by George B from Cherry Hill

    Totally blown away at the negative reviews on here. I'm looking to buy a second charger for my wife so she can leave one at the office and one at home. We own 4 macbooks... 15" 2015 MacBook Pro Retina, 13" 2015 MacBook Pro Retina, 13" 2013 MacBook Air and my old 2011 15" MacBook Pro. All still use the original magsafe chargers that came with them at purchase... All work perfectly with zero issues.I have never experienced fraying, dry-rotting, or any mechanical or electrical issues. Clearly the majority of users are ABusers.

    Why the negative comments?

    • Written by Braedyn M

    This Magsafe 2 charger which originally came with my Macbook Pro 2014 is still in 100% working order. It has not yellowed, chipped, frayed, or disassembles in any way possible. The magnet after over 3 years of snapping on and off, mainly due to my huge german shephard, is still just as reliable as when we first purchased it. My expectations were exceeded and I recommend this product who has a computer with a Magsafe 2. This may only be comparable with the 13 inch macbook pro. Check your Macbook to see if this is the right charger for yours. Click the apple in the upper left hand corner and click "About this Mac". It will show you your computer info if you hit the more information button. I hope this helps everyone who needs it!

    The Only Charger You'll Ever Need

    • Written by Blaine C from El Reno

    Most of the reviews on this charger are negative, but I promise, if you treat this charger well, don't chew on it, and don't throw it places, it will last you a long time. I've had the charger that came with my MacBook Air for almost 2 years now and there is not a scratch. It's actually still really white. Treat your stuff well and it will last you for a very long time.

    Excellent charger

    • Written by Justin P from Oshawa

    Charger works exactly as expected. I haven't had any build quality issues as other people have (my power adapter is nearly 3 years old and it's in nearly perfect shape, though the cable is a little dirty and yellowing near the actual connector). The cable falls out at the right times, and doesn't usually fall out when it's not supposed to. Excellent charger, it's a pity it was removed from the new MacBook Pros.

    Best power cord ever.

    • Written by Randy C from PHOENIX

    I love how the cord pops off and does not hurt my Mac one bit. Other computers you have to be careful not to pull cord the wrong way or PC will break but not with the one we have on the Macbook. Great job Apple, I miss Steve ��

    I don't see why everyones' upset

    • Written by Leyna P from Brick

    I've had the same charger since buying my Macbook back in 2013 and I might have to buy a new one because after years of being run over (accidentally) by my chair its getting a little too wrapped in electrical tape to really be portable. I would like to know what everyones doing to have the cables break so quickly, as mine has been in and out of bags for years now. It has held up well and is still going strong.

    Excellent power adapter.

    • Written by Scott G from Edinburgh

    This works just as it should. Easily connects and disconnects from laptop with a secure connection. It quickly charges MaBook pro and unlike a lot of reviews, my power adapter never overheats. It also is easy to wrap the cable up neatly for traveling.

    Absolutely Fine!

    • Written by Sam W from Christchurch

    Many people have criticised this charger for numerous reasons. However it is perfectly fine! I love how it comes with the extension cord making it reach even further, also being able to wind the cord up makes storage simple. People say it falls out of the macbook too easily, are you trying to ride a bike while you charge?!? The magnet holding it in is strong enough that I can get up and move around without it falling out - unless you bend the cord away for the laptop then of course it will fall out! This charger is fantastic and does the job perfectly, treat it right and it will last you a long time.

    Ps. I have had mine for a year now and it gets used every day at university and at home.

    Perfect

    • Written by Brian N from Newtownards

    Got my first ever Macbook at christmas and I just love the cable, the length is great for using it in bed and you can see immediately whether it is fully charged or not. The magnetic connection is genius, I have lost count of the number of times I have tripped over leads, a very safe aspect to it. I love it so much Im buying another one so I can leave one beside my bed as well as have one downstairs. Thank you Apple
