Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)

Get help buying. or call 1800-80-6419.
  • Overview

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and 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 will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users 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 and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

      Power adaptors do not last

      Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. S Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

      Dear Apple

      I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple yea I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months. Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month! I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

Have had it a total of maybe, 2-3 weeks and if I want to charge my laptop the cable has to be put into a very specific position. Also the metal head that connects to your macbook gets very hot and can burn you. I will be requesting a replacement and would hope that apple would stop using cheap materials and over charging because of their brand.

      Poor Design and Short Lifespan

      I have a 2011 Macbook Pro and I still love it. Unfortunately, I do no love the charging cable. I am on my third cable (the first accidentally damaged myself). T I have a 2011 Macbook Pro and I still love it. Unfortunately, I do no love the charging cable. I am on my third cable (the first accidentally damaged myself). The second and current cords have been faulty at the connector piece. The second cord's rubber cracked and revealed the inner cables so I had to use electrical tape as a temporary fix until I received a new cord. The new cord (which I have had 2 years) has burned a spiraling yellow ring burned along the first 4 inches of the cord. Today, the rubber near the connection piece cracked, and I am once again using tape to keep it together. It seems the lifespan is about 2ish years per cord... I'd be more than happy to invest in the newer cord design if it was compatible with my 2011 Macbook Pro, but unfortunately, that is not the case. If possible, could this cord be redesigned? I have to agree with many others that for $80, that quality of this cord leaves me disappointed. Your computers are fantastic, but the hardware needs some adjusting.

It was actually because the part of the cable, that holds the cable when folded, cut the cable and now a piece of wire is exposed and every time I connect it to the power, it will spark. This is totally not safe. I wish Apple would do something about this. You'd think years of having mostly 1 star ratings, they'd do something about it.
