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

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.

Even with relatively light use, and tape added to the weak point between the hard socket and soft cable to try to make it last a bit longer, don't expect it to last longer than 6 months. It is a terrible design, and grossly overpriced.

      Design & Functionality - ok / Durability - worst

      I actually like the design and functionality of the charger. Unfortunately, I already had to buy my 3rd charger just at the end the 3rd year of having my Macboo I actually like the design and functionality of the charger. Unfortunately, I already had to buy my 3rd charger just at the end the 3rd year of having my Macbook. The cables constantly break, always at both ends and the wires come out, which doesn't´look good and most certainly also isn´t safe. So consider these "service costs" probably for each year.

      Quality has significantly went down, and keeps going down...

      It's really sad when you know the quality of products have gone down. I have a 2013 13in mac with the same charger I received at purchase. With this 15in retna It's really sad when you know the quality of products have gone down. I have a 2013 13in mac with the same charger I received at purchase. With this 15in retna macbook, I have gone through 2 chargers already. This is insane, as these chargers are not cheap!
