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 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.

      Breaks and Unplugs too easily

Within 3 months of getting my adapter (which I was wrapping around the prongs on the block), the wires frayed and I had to replace it. Since that method didn't work, on the new one I tried wrapping with the over/under technique I use on audio cables that is supposed to prevent damage. That cord only lasted about 6 months. There needs to be a better, stronger design that doesn't break. It's also annoying that you can only charge on a desk. It comes unplugged way too easily when it is on my lap, which kind of defeats the purpose of a LAPtop.

      AWFUL DESIGN

To charge $79.00 to replace the charger with another defective charger that will deteriorate quickly is INSULTING. I will not buy another Mac Book Pro for this reason. I'm irritated and angry. This is terrible customer service for someone who owns the whole line of Apple products.

      Cheap non-replaceable cord & poorly designed connector

      This cheap and easily broken cord that runs from the power block to the laptop is non-replaceable. The first power adapter I got broke within 6 months with litt This cheap and easily broken cord that runs from the power block to the laptop is non-replaceable. The first power adapter I got broke within 6 months with little to no usage. An obvious design flaw by a rookie. The cord clearly should have been removable & replaceable. I feel Apple should do right with their customers and offer/sell a replacement for the faulty 85W MagSafe 2 power adapter with a "USB-C option" allowing the customer to use any off the shelf "USB-C" cable with a "MagSafe 2" adapter. But we know they won't. Apple places no value on a user's old hardware. Also, the poorly designed magnetic connector falls out too easily. The magnet should be stronger.
