    worst adaptors

    This is my 3rd adapter, I've wasted so much money on these I'm considering moving away from Apple altogether.
    This company is not what it used to be, seems quality is no longer a priority.
    At so much money, these adaptors should not fall apart so quickly

    Absolute Garbage

    For the astronomical price I pay for this, I would hope it can at least last the year. Every non-Apply laptop I've had in the past has a sturdy laptop power adapter that leasts years, this is unacceptable.

    You could have burnt my house down.

    I was a happy customer. After sixteen months of purchase (MBP 9,2), and after upholding every single one of your use instructions, (level surface, no obstructions of air flow etc) my charger burnt out.
    A couple of weeks before that, my HDD flex cable failed so I now have reason to believe that those two massive failures are connected.
    Tomorrow morning, I'm calling my local distributor (Greece) and I'm demanding that you hold your end of your EU two year statutory warranty.

    Thanks, Apple.

    Decided to buy a non Apple charger

    My 5th Apple charger for my macbook air has just given up the ghost after 13 months - working this out I could almost have bought a new laptop - maybe that is Apple's ploy

    So fed up - now going to try a non-Apple charger - if that lasts as long and is half the price it will be the way forward

    At least 8 years of terrible build quality - when will apple take note?

    Charger has broken after 14 months use. Charger for an old MacBook did the exact same thing. Why has the quality not improved, especially with such consistently awful feedback.

    Terrible Product

    I have had 3 chargers in 5 years and every one of them has frayed very easily. I'm generally pretty easy on my charger, but every single one of them has had zero durability. This charger is absolutely terrible

    Adapter does not last

    I've only had my Macbook Pro for about a year and the power adapter already went out. The part that plugs into the computer separated from the cord and because it's magnetized, it's stuck in there. When I try to plug the cord back in, I get a shower of sparks. Very displeased with this product.

    Terrible

    This is my 3rd charger in 4 years. For $70 per charger, its is not fun to replace it every year. I wish Apple do something with replacement program.

    Quality Decline

    It seems evident from the reviews that there has been a definite decline in the quality of the chargers - almost every five star review (including mine) is of the original charger that came in the box that has since lasted years with no problems. It's no doubt a different product at this point, or just in general, from what is sold in stores at an outrageous price point. I still have the 60W MagSafe that came with my 2009 15-inch MacBook Pro and only recently started having an issue with cord tearing, and I'm pretty sure it was my fault. Chargers shouldn't have to be babied to last, and I doubt the folks giving one star reviews have been destroying their chargers. Point is, I'd trust the masses on this one, as the rest of us are talking about a product you won't be purchasing.

    SO DISAPPOINTED IN APPLE

    This is now my fourth charger I've had to buy within three and a half years. FOURTH. At $80 a piece, you would think Apple would resign their cords so that they literally do not snap off and fray one month after I buy it!!! Why Apple probably is aware of these issues and hasn't don't anything about it is perplexing. If you're going to portray yourself as being so high-tech and high quality, then make your dang expensive chargers worth the money spent on them.

    Apple Prides Itself on Design and Quality & This is Junk

    Disgusted with Apple. I've been through three chargers. They constantly break. Customer service representatives have bounced me around. I'm very unsatisfied and unhappy with Apple at the moment. The product either breaks completely, starts to fray, or the plastic comes off.

    Absolutely useless

    I am disgusted at the price of this charger compared to the durability. I have had this charger for a grand total of two months and it has completely broken. For weeks the charger has been going off with the slightest bit of movement and now it is totally unresponsive. I am dumbfounded at the fact that these £80 chargers are our only options and they are lasting no more than two to three months. Classic Apple charging absurd prices for sub-standard products.

    Terrible!!!!

    I have bought two of these over the past 5 years. They are so expensive and break so easily. The chord side where the charger box is is so brittle and snaps so easily, making it so you can't charge it at all. I've only had this charger for a year and a half. Boo apple

    Another failure

    Like many other reviewers - my second adapter is on the verge of failing and I am going to have to buy another - come on Apple you need to do something about this.

    Really Apple???

    When/IF I buy another adapter, this will be my third one in 5 years. Meanwhile, the cheapest, most ridiculous appliances and gadgets that I purchase have power cords that last forever! For $80 bucks, it needs to last a lifetime. My next computer will most likely not be an Apple. I need something VR capable and if you did have something VR ready, it would probably be too expensive anyway. I'm tired of you guys acting like you're the Maserati of computers when you REFUSE to make a decent power cord. Please get it together.

    Too expensive!!

    I had to buy a replacement charger due to my original chargers insulation splitting & exposing the cables. I was disgusted to learn of the price of a replacement charger. It is far too expensive but I have no choice but to buy one in order to continue using my laptop. It leaves me strongly doubting as to whether I would buy another Apple product in the future due to the excess expenses.

    Literally awful

    It lasts less than a year. Also the price has dramatically increased since I last had to purchase it.

    Basically... the cord isn't sturdily supported at any of its connections save the plugin to the wall, so it bends and breaks at all of its junctions (i.e. weak points).

    Reinforcing it with duct tape around the weak points (read: at the L-tip, and at the connection to the adapter) immediately after buying it seems to have prolonged its life by at least two months.

    Surprised at the negative reviews...

    I have had my MacBook pro 13 in for 7 years and my power adapter is just now going out. I am a bit taken aback by the price of a replacement that fits something as technologically ancient as a 10 year old laptop, however my computer still runs flawlessly. Well worth it if you don't have to keep up with the Jonses (or Kardashians.... ugh). That being said, I have never had an issue with my Mac power adapters until now so (fingers crossed) I will replace it today... I was also surprised at the over 2K negative reviews. This has simply not been my experience. I treat my electronics like the expensive necessities that they are but have also traveled the world (literally) with this computer/power adapter for the last 10 years. Not a single issue. I was also in the "sand box" (for those of you that will identify with that terminology) which is one of the harshest environments for electronics on Earth. I stand behind Apple.

    About a 4-year Lifespan

    I believe I've had to purchase three of these in 11 years. The white rubber/plastic coating just shreds and flakes off, exposing the bare wire and causing it to fray. Why not use industrial strength coating? Oh wait, because then you can get $79.00 every few years from each of us.
    I would give three stars if it weren't for the price. Way, way too expensive for a simple cord.

    One of the worst Apple products out there

    These chargers are incredibly fragile and not built to last more than a year or two. On top of that, they're insanely overpriced, so you can be assured you'll be wasting all kinds of money replacing these over time.
