      Poor design choices + nickel and diming = unhappy customer

      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 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!

      what happened to MagSafe?

      I have three MagSafe adapters from past laptops and now forced to buy a new charger for new Mac. No MagSafe, no USB, no DVI, just 4 ports and all new adapters I have three MagSafe adapters from past laptops and now forced to buy a new charger for new Mac. No MagSafe, no USB, no DVI, just 4 ports and all new adapters. Talk about nickel and dining your customers. Apple products used to be cutting edge and elegant. Not anymore.

      As if all the dongles weren't enough

      Not including a simple 2 meter USB C cable with an $80 charger is beyond stupid. It's almost as if they have contempt for their own customers.

      Of course it's bulky, heavy, and expensive -- it's 87 watts!

      This adapter produces 20.2V at 4.3A, so of course it's bulky, heavy, and expensive compared to single voltage, low current adapters. If you think you can desig This adapter produces 20.2V at 4.3A, so of course it's bulky, heavy, and expensive compared to single voltage, low current adapters. If you think you can design a regulated USB-C adapter the produces 20.2V at 4.3A, 9V at 3A, and 5V at 2.4A, accepts 100-240VAC at 50-60HZ inputs, meets regulatory standards all over the world, is UL approved, and make it small, light, and inexpensive, then you aren't and electrical engineer. I am an electrical engineer and I am quite impressed by this unit, as I have been with prior Apple power supplies. After seeing the horrible knock-offs and counterfeit Apple power adapter from China, I understand why Apple's genuine articles cost a lot more. People griped that the old MagSafe adapters had integrated cords that required that the entire unit be replaced in case of cord damage. Now this one has a detachable line cord and people complain that it's separate. They complain that "there are no fold out clips to wrap the cable around the adapter." After seeing the way that people wrapped the cords around the clips, as tight as banjo strings with the cord almost being pulled out of the adapter by the force, eventually leading to failure in thousands of cases, it's no wonder Apple removed them. People who do things like that are why we can't have nice things. Another reviewer wrote "It wears out on both ends and now I have one of the ends showing electrical WIRE and it's starting to SPARK?!" I've had three iPads, two MacBooks, at least a half dozen iPods, and three iPhones. I've never damaged any cord on any of them - because I take care of my stuff. People need to recognize that a small diameter, very flexible power/data cable is not something that can be treated like a string from a Weed Wacker. If your cord is frayed, it's your fault, not Apple's. If you refuse to take care of your stuff, then buy Dell. They have power cords that are about as big around as a horse's leg.
