Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)

  • Overview

    The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone trips over it, the lead 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 full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adapter has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook Pro with Retina display.

    Not sure if this is the right power adapter for your Mac?

    See this article for more details about choosing the right one.

    Knowing which specific Mac model you have is important. If you are running OS X Lion (10.7) or later, go to the “” menu at the top left of your screen, choose “About this Mac” then click the “More Info...” button. Your Mac model and generation will be displayed.

      NOT GOOD.

      This charger gets extremely hot and the cable is very weak. Not a good design at all had to buy another one. I hope apple refund my money on the product.

      Quality - I think not

      After spending over £2500 on a laptop I would have expected the charger to have lasted a little longer that 16 months. I am not a heavy user but the charger had After spending over £2500 on a laptop I would have expected the charger to have lasted a little longer that 16 months. I am not a heavy user but the charger had now 'frayed' at the mag 2 connector showing the metal grading around the cable itself. It is a poorly designed and poorly constructed piece of equipment which lets down the whole product. I just wonder what Apple were thinking of.......

Today the cable coming out of the main unit melted exposing the internal wires. In the process it melted a hole in the carpet it was sitting on. Overheating seems to be a recurrent problem with this design. Tomorrow I will see what the Mac Store has to say about this. I assume that they will replace the product for free.

      Terrible Insulation Material, Frays in Just a Year

      I absolutely HATE the material Apple uses for their power cables' insulation. Why do they feel the need to use such a soft and easily ripped rubber? How about s I absolutely HATE the material Apple uses for their power cables' insulation. Why do they feel the need to use such a soft and easily ripped rubber? How about something that will actually last as long as the computer? Why can't the MagSafe cable itself be detachable from the power brick just like the AC-side extension cord? Maybe then I wouldn't have to spend $100 every year replacing the entire thing. But then that'd cut into Apple's profits, just like why they ditched the iPhone's microphone jack and all the useful ports on the MacBook Pro in favor of dongles. It's not like my computer gets subjected to a lot of wear and tear, it just sits in my bedroom. How a power cord self-destructs like that under such low stress conditions I have no idea other than Apple designing them to fail.

      MagSafe connector failed - just before a big meeting

      These things are the worst. Seriously deficient for a company of Apple's reputation. Shameful that they do not recall/replace these. My laptop literally stop These things are the worst. Seriously deficient for a company of Apple's reputation. Shameful that they do not recall/replace these. My laptop literally stopped charging just one day. About two hours before a big presentation, I was out of town, nowhere near a store to replace this. Luckily a guest in the hotel had one and lent it to me. Kind soul. Otherwise I would have been SoL! Apple, get your $hi# together on this. Will seriously consider a windows machine next time. B

This will be the While I love my mac, this is absolutely the worst charger. Clearly designed to break and to force people to buy new ones every couple of years. This will be the 3rd charger in a few years, and has reached a point were it melted the outer cable and started to smoke. I have always loved apple products, but sadly the decline in workmanship and cheap money making tricks means that this will most certainly be the last apple product I purchase. If i could give 0 stars i would.
