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

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

      $1 cable flaw disrupting a $3000 MBP, sad!

Unfortunately, I cannot say the same thing about the power adapter, I've never had issues with the actual connection to the laptop itself. I have issues where the thin output cable running out of the charging brick itself. I am now on number 5 for two MBP's. They have degrading output cables, splits open and frayed shielding of the cable. Sad the power brick itself will still function if not for the poor thin cable breaking causing the complete system. It's a shame the apple has fallen so far from the innovative tree it once was. I'll modify the new one I buy today myself.

      Poor Quality- Shame apple

      The charger get overheated and the poor quality cable first turn to yellow and then frayed from the connection point. Despite the terrible reviews and negative The charger get overheated and the poor quality cable first turn to yellow and then frayed from the connection point. Despite the terrible reviews and negative customer feedbacks apple shop refuse the fault and I was told by Brent Cross UK Apple shop that this is cosmetic issue and nothing to do with the quality! The shop manager said there is no recorded issue with their cable quality! Do apple manager even read the reviews in their own website? 185 unhappy reviews our of 200 it means something! Shame on you Apple to charge over £2000 for a Retina Macbook Pro and £79 for such a cheap quality charger. At least take some responsibility and increase the quality! Amazon brand chargers for Apple products will last far longer than Apple brand and their customer service always happy to help unlike the Apple team. Again Shame!
