    Great Charger

    • Written by Bradley F from Concord

    Love it. I can change the head for a long or short cable. Magnet plugs in well. LED indicates status. Smartest charger around!

    Learn to take care of your possessions; Or, haters gonna hate.

    • Written by A T from Bromley

    Amazed at the frothing outrage this product seems to have encouraged. Had mine for around four years and no sign of wear and tear or "dangerous" overheating to date… and as for the comments about the cable being shoddy; our has withstood many a ferocious kitty mauling! Perhaps the good folk of Grumpton on the Whine would do well to remember that a] one must care for one's possessions if they're to last, b] nothing lasts forever and c] on the rare occasion a dud sneak out of the factory and plops in your lap, Apple will, in all likelihood, exchange it for a good 'un with neither fuss nor fanfare should you take the trouble pop along to a store for a polite chat with your friendly neighbourhood Genius™. :)

    What's everyone's problem??

    • Written by Shari C from Gilbert

    I don't understand why everyone has a problem. If it's the adapter then maybe you guys are doing something wrong. As far as the CHARGER itself, which is what is SUPPOSED to be getting reviewed, there should be no problem there, either. Unless the user is doing something wrong. I have mine plugged in under my couch and it got caught in the reclining mechanism, therefore splintering the cord. That's MY fault. Just going to go down and get a new one. NO big deal.

    Puzzled

    • Written by Saeed A from Nottingham

    No idea what you are all talking about regarding the reviews you are all giving, had my original MACBook Air charger for just over 3 years and its still all working fine, in fact I am about to purchase another for the office so its permanently their so do not have to mess about... although you could says its being lazy.

    Seriously I have seen the way some MAC's are treated and have to say if you treat your MAC like garbage then do not expect it to last!

    Thanks ... satisfied customer.

    4 years - Same charger!

    • Written by Staffan P from Halmstad

    I write this review only to contrast the others. I've had my Macbook Air for 4 years soon. Its been charged everyday, used for many hours everyday. Transported almost everyday. And my battery and charger has been working all this time.

    I'm not careful, but not overly reckless either. I just stuff things down in the bag and go.

    This charger is NOT bad quality. It is good quality. That is to be expected for the price but the people on here saying that its bad must be chewing on the cord or something. Mine is just now beginning to break a little in the cord. After constant use and abuse from 3++ years? Thats good quality!

    Works Well

    • Written by EGFS M from Eau Claire

    I love the MagSafe feature. I've had Macbooks with this style of cable (MagSafe and MagSafe 2) for going on 6 years. I'm still using the original cable with no signs of needing to purchase a new one. It is purely a matter of how the cable is coiled for transport. Cables love curves, not bends. I coil the thick power cable in a circle (loosely) around the square transformer block. In the beginning I make sure to twist the cable with my fingers to that it 'lays' naturally in a circle. After doing this a couple of times, the cable gets a 'memory' of being in that circle. I then coil the small/thin cable the same way on other side of the block, so the two circles of cables 'sandwich' the transformer block. The whole set of cables is compact, easy to carry AND they LAST! It takes a couple of minutes the first couple of times, but after that I can coil up a MacBook cable in under 60secs.

    I also manage a company with about 20 users. I see LOTS of 'other' ways of storing the cable. Mash them together in a bag, pull/wind the cable around the block perpendicularly, bend coil the cable 'bowtie' style with a wire tie. ALL of these ways lead to problems. I see cables come back on occasion with obvious tension breaks in the cable and connector junctions.

    Many users have good intentions, but very few circle coil the cables. I know that 'most' will prefer to not have to do that and want the cable to withstand any/most treatment, but I would think that would result in bigger, bulkier cables. I remember what the Dell cables were like and they did not fair 'any' better, in fact they came back much more often, usually due not being 'MagSafe'. That physical 'plug-in' connection gets a lot of strain.

    Anyway, I just wanted to provide another opinion based on my real world experience.

    GREAT

    • Written by Danielle B from CORONA

    I received this charger when i first purchased my MacBook Air in spring 2015. YES I'am using the original charger still but I'am buying an extra one, for a lighter work bag. I believe this charger is better than the MacBook Pro chargers which are the WORST !. This charger is great , I would know. Im rough with my chargers as i go through multiple iPhone 7s charger yearly.

    Charger was great

    • Written by Roddyna S from hempstead

    My MacBook Air charger lasted me almost five years. I got the Mac in 2013 and it just broke today, in September of 2017. I didn't exactly treat it as well as I should have and I'm surprised that it lasted as long as it did.

    Still the best charger around

    • Written by Matt F from London

    Let me start this review by saying I'm not an Apple fan at all. In fact I hate most of their products. But I think the Magsafe charger is the best charger on the market, for these 3 features which no other laptop charger has

    1. Magsafe i.e. the magnetic connector is awesome, connects quickly, is not fiddly, prevents accidents when cable gets tripped over
    2. The charger has a small footprint
    3. The prongs fold out for wrapping the cable when travelling

    I've had my charger as long as my Macbook Air and haven't had any problems with it. All of you complaining about it should ensure you followed Apple's guidelines on how to use it (seach for "Reduce cable strain" as I can't add a link to this review), and especially only unplug it by pulling on the connector and not on the charger body.

    BOOK A GENIUS APPOINTMENT

    • Written by Sarah L from Southampton

    After reading these comments I was very worried that I would have to spend money on buying a new charger (mine frayed after having it for two years and it stopped working completely) I booked a genius appointment at my apple store, I don't have apple care and I received a replacement charger for free. The person I spoke with was very helpful and sorted the problem very quickly! This was at the Southampton store. I advise to book an appointment before purchasing the charger! :)

    Dont Listen To These Reviews

    • Written by Angus P from Double Bay

    Look, I've had my fair share of issues with Apple. Having come from PC computers, these chargers are amazing in comparison. All of these reviews are people who have probably done damage to their charges on accident. If you have a problem with your charger just visit Apple like I have done many times and get a replacement charger for free if it was a fault. Just don't listen to these reviews.

    Love my MagSafe 2

    • Written by Colin L from Edinburgh

    Seeing all these negative reviews has prompted me to add a bit of balance. I've had my MBA for about 5 years and power cable looks and works like new. It is fairly light and compact and plenty long enough. I just love the magnetic connection and the little light on the connector indicating whether the battery is fully charged. Definitely a design classic and a shame that it has been superseded on new MacBook models.
