    Great Charger! Good Quality Product!

    • Written by Zachary K from Sioux City

    I've been using this kind of charger to change my MacBook Air and usually never have an issue with it. It charges great and being 45 watts is easier on the energy bills and doesn't blow a fuse.

    I have no idea why a lot of people are giving this great product a 1-star rating. Most of the 1-star ratings are from users misusing the charger or just not winding or storing it properly. Whenever I needed to replace a charger, it was my own fault when I didn't wind it properly or anything like that. Seriously guys, don't place the blame on Apple if you're misusing it or not taking proper care of it. My charger works great, and Apple worked extra hard making a quality product.

    Good product!

    • Written by Hannah R from Fresno

    I received my Mag Safe 2 charger with my MacBook air when I first purchased it back in July 2014, and I am just now buying a replacement charger. I never bothered to fold the wires correctly, so it finally frayed where the thin charge cord connected to the power adaptor...4 years is pretty great, and my laptop still functions fine, so here's to another 4 years with my next charger, hopefully!

    Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air

    • Written by Jenafer P from Hedgesville

    I have a mid-2012 MacBook Air; it is currently 7 years old. I just replaced my power adaptor for the first time in 7 years due to the wires coming thru. Three cheers to Apple!!! I am very easy on all my power adaptors for my iPad's, iPhones; iMac'. I am always trying to make sure when I use the power cords they aren't all twisted up, etc. This really seems to help with them lasting longer than usual.

    Thanks Apple for your products and I look forward to purchasing in the future with Apple.

    Made in America is the better option! :)

    A Fine Charger

    • Written by Timothy C from Santa Barbara

    I've been using the charger that came with my mid-2012 MacBook Air since the day I bought it and have had no problems with it. Either I somehow got lucky with the quality of my charger in particular, or some people are just extremely rough on theirs. Take care of your tools and they will take care of you.

    Perfect in every way!!

    • Written by Natalie B from Perth

    I have been using the original charger from my mac book air mid 2012 since I bought it. This is a great product from my experience. It was perfect.

    I recently lent my laptop once to a friend for uni late 2018. I got the charger back with major damage which is why I never lent it out before when this friend asked once before a few years ago. This time I thought why not, I don't need it right now, her laptop is in for repair, sure. She never told me, never apologised, never mentioned the damage. I look after my stuff so well and I just don't understand how people break things so easily. People on average just seem to be rough and blame the manufacturers or the company when usually it's the persons fault. But they don't want to blame themselves.

    So like another person said, maybe I was just lucky, but I doubt it. On my experience with why I don't lend stuff out to people is because they just don't realise how rough they are with things and that they are the ones breaking things. Never lend your stuff unless you know the person takes care of things. I mean it, NEVER lend your possessions to people, even if they desperately need it for a uni assignment and try to make you feel bad if you don't. Disappointed in people who can't look after things. Rant over.

    No issues

    • Written by Liane C from Auckland

    I felt compelled to review this product after reading the other reviews. I have had three of these power adapters at each W level, the 45 since 2012 when I bought my MacBook air. The ONLY reason I have bought new ones is to have spares as I job share & don't always want to cart an additional lead around in my MacBook bag. All including the original are still charging fine, no fraying, no issues. I do look after them but not obsessively. They have all been kicking around under various desks, accidentally stepped on, accidentally dropped etc as you would expect with high use. I really have had no issues at all.

    Now the lightning cables ... aah ... that is a WHOLE other matter! :)
