      Poor design choices + nickel and diming = unhappy customer

However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropp As a longtime Apple enthusiast, I tend to go easy on Apple when it comes to controversial design decisions. However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropped all cable management for this new adapter design. This time around, there are no fold out clips to wrap the cable around the adapter and there is no clip on the cable itself to facilitate wrapping it up. I have to use a black Velcro strap every time I'm done using it and want to securely stow it in my bag, which is exactly the opposite of the simple yet functional design aesthetic I thought Apple strived for. 2) There is no charging indicator / status light on the new AC Adapters. As a result, I have to log in to the laptop and check the battery meter to monitor progress. 3) There is no reasonable justification for charging $79 for an "extra" AC adapter AND forcing me to pay another $19 for the required charging cable that used to be included (and permanently affixed) to previous iterations of Apple AC adapters. That's right folks, for $79 you get only the power brick, the charging cable (seems like an obvious requirement) that runs between the brick and the laptop is NOT included! Once you throw that in, you're looking at almost $100 to keep a backup power cord in your laptop bag. Apple somehow managed to ruin every single aspect of what used to be an elegant design. Best of all, they charge more for the privilege of using it.

      Too bulky and too overpriced

      This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the L This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the LED indicator is gone as well there is no way to know if your laptop is charging unless you heard the sound it makes when you plug it in. Overall, its really not the best but its what you need to power your device.

      works but big and bulky

      whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this b whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this brick is going to weigh as much as a real brick. Really Apple, really!

This "brick" represents old technology at an excessive price that is causing many of us to reconsider our brand loyalty. For all the money Apple spends on its brand, both in R&D and direct consumer advertising, this is a major self inflicted wound. The absence of any power indicator, method of storing the cable on the unit and the excessive cost both for the adaptor and the separate cable is insulting. I have been a long time Apple proponent, but like others I will begin to look at other options because any company that promotes decisions that are penny wise and pound foolish are no longer visionary.

      Selling the power adapter and the cable separately is the best feature!

Now if the cable goes bad, you just pay a few bucks to replace that. And you can use any USB-C cable you want. So happy to see this!

      I drove to Best Buy through an hour of traffic to get a back up charger for home use. I got back home and no connector cable. Great. Was I the dumb one for thin I drove to Best Buy through an hour of traffic to get a back up charger for home use. I got back home and no connector cable. Great. Was I the dumb one for thinking it would be included, or is Apple the dumb one? I'm trying to think of the last time I bought a toaster that had no cord or a toothbrush that had no bristles. Is this thinking differently? Maybe, just maybe, if the designer box did not have 3 pt type printed in 10% black, I might have been able to read that a cable was not included, if it says that at all, but I left my pocket microscope in my other pair of pants. Give me a break. I pay a premium for your hardware to begin with.
