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.

      Replacing the power adaptor every 18 months is not acceptable

It seems completely unacceptable that this power supply should only last 1-2 years for a computer that I hope will last several times that. I guess Apple doesn't care about the reviews as they are receiving £79 a time for a replacement power adaptor. The power adaptor for my previous generation Mac was still ok after 4+ years when the laptop died so Apple can make a decent P/S.

I bought a £2000 MacBook pro in March 2016. The first magsafe2 85w power supply made a definite pop sound in October 2016. Apple replaced the power supply with a new one. The new one went pop in July 2017, but Apple would not replace it because the MacBook pro was out of warranty. A replacement cost me £80. The advice from Apple support was to avoid using the power supply with a four way power strip or for long periods.

      Not fit for purpose

The product is not fit for pur Just to add another voice to the tale of woes about the magsafe 2 chargers and the usual failed/frayed cable at the charger end. The product is not fit for purpose and at the very least Apple should offer a free replacement or repair service, not be charging 80quid for the pleasure of buying the same piece of junk. I do not understand how they can remain in complete denial about this failure mode. Shame on you Apple for releasing this garbage and then failing to do anything to acknowledge customer complaints.
