    Cheap and Overpriced

    These chargers are extremely cheap and way to expensive. These do not last and I have to buy a new one at least once a year. It's ridiculous. Apple really needs to make better quality chargers.

    Not worth price

    I can't believe I had to spend $80 on a replacement cord and I don't even travel with it, so it has very little wear.

    A Complete Rip Off

    New macbook pro, the day after I got it, the battery charger chord started to rip apart. After taping it I thought I was ok. After months of tearing, ripping, peeling, I was forced to tape the peeling parts to keep it safe from possible damage. Now, its damaged, it has a short and its nearly completely peeled off!!! Ive not even had the computer for a full two years yet! Why the heck does this cost 80 dollars?! IF YOU NOTICE MOST PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME ISSUE WITH PEELING, SO WHY CHARGE US ALMOST 100 DOLLARS FOR IT TO PEEL AGAIN!??????????????? THIS IS A COMPLETE RIP OFF!!!!

    VERY Disappointing Chargers for the past 10+ years.

    I honestly do not understand how this hasn't had a MAJOR overhaul and a complete redesign of every single aspect of this charger. The long list of awfulness:

    1) Extremely flimsy. As with every single accessory made by Apple it's the least durable of all the counterparts that their competitors make (think all cables, earphones, converters, etc.) . You can COUNT on having to replace this within a year or two of owning your computer. So BUDGET for it.

    2) Speaking of which, VERY overpriced. Again, even if it's perfect, $80 is way too much. Especially that it's the opposite of perfect.

    3) Allow other suppliers to at least design and sell alternatives, which will certainly be better designed and priced. You do that with the iPod accessories, why not this????

    4) For a product that will spend close to 100% of its life on the floor, maybe white isn't the best choice of color. It's bound to look disgusting within a month of normal use. And it will stay this filthy forever.

    5) All iterations of your chargers have received the worst possible ratings and reviews of anything you make. You an set the trends and everything and dictate tastes, but some of the time you must learn to LISTEN to your customers. Especially when they're ALL saying the same thing, and have been for more than a decade.

    6) When I pay $2,000+ for a computer, I expect that every single part of it will be impeccably made and would live at least for 3 years of normal use.

    7) Thank you for the daily frustration.

    Disapointed MAC could sell a bad product

    Less than a year before having problems with this power cord. Frayed, used electric tape. Worked for a while and stopped again. Seriously I never expected such an inferior product. I have never had problems with any other power cord to other computers, and/or electronic devices.

    Rubbish cable

    Cable frays!!! I've had Macs for 25 years and never had this problem before. I can't believe Apple have the nerve to sell this.
    Utter rubbish.

    Apple's worst product

    Ridiculous that it still cost this much and even more so that this has to be purchased as often as it does. A shame that Apple is ripping off people like this. Especially for Apple lovers.

    Apple's adapters don't last

    Previously I had a 15 inch 2008 Macbook Pro. It had a T-shaped MagSafe adapter, very good quality, didn't break in three years. Then I had a 15 inch 2011 Macbook Pro which had an L-shaped MagSafe adapter that broke four times in four years. The wire simply breaks from the joint. Now I have a 13 inch 2012 MacBook Pro which has this 60W L-shaped MagSafe adapter that has broken after one and a half years.

    Buying a $100 adapter every time is very expensive. Apple needs to do something about this problem.

    Same problem year after year. Please fix this Apple!!!!

    If you've read all the other one star reviews, then you'll know what I'm going to say. Yet another frayed cable at the plug end. Another £65. Everyone is sick of having to fork out for another charger that won't last.

    Frayed too soon.

    Received this style charger with the purchase of my Macbook Pro a little over two years ago (February 2014). Around February of this year (2016) I noticed the part of the cord near the cube began fraying, so I used a little bit of electrical tape to repair it, and for the past four months (it is now June of 2016) my repair worked flawlessly, until today. Today it is cutting in and out of connectivity, and my attempt to re-repair with new electrical tape only helped a little bit. I am a lot more meticulous about how I store the cord when not in use now compared to when I first got it, making sure to wrap it up without putting any tension on the frayed part. The cord is just very brittle and prone to splitting/fraying if you are not meticulous about caring for it. My girlfriend still has the old style ("T" style) charger and, treated the same way (if not, worse) than I treat my cord, her's is in excellent condition still, and she has had it since 2009. Her cord does seem a little more flexible than mine; mine is noticeably more rigid. I really wish Apple would put more effort into fixing this problem, seeing as how this appears to be a very common issue.

    Horrible, flimsy, prone to breakage.

    About to purchase my third one in three years. Apple, I love most of your products, but get this together. You are a multi-billion dollar company, and frankly, it is a travesty that you are charging seventy dollars for a POS product that probably cost you less than twenty bucks to make. You are better than this.

    Two in Six Months

    I've had two of these break in six months; that longevity is ridiculous to begin with, but even more so given how absurdly expensive these chargers are. When I get around to buying another one, I will have spent enough money on these chargers to buy a cheap laptop; come on, Apple, I believe in your ability to make chargers that don't break this quickly.

    Horribly Delicate

    My charger for my mid-2012 13" Macbook Pro only works sometimes when it's plugged in. Though to myself "hey I'll just order another one"... but at 100 bucks for a cord looks like I'll just deal with this one and by a pc when I need to. This is ridiculous, I was expecting to pay 40-50 bucks at most for a cord (cause you know it is an apple cord). I'm done with this company. Good luck on your next quarter with these overpriced horribly built products.

    Connecting and disconnecting the charger to make my Mac turn on.

    I own a MacBook (Early 2008 - MB404LL/A) and its 60W MagSafe power adapter with "T" style connector since a couple of years ago started to present problems to charge the battery — and because of that, the battery doesn't charge anymore. Ok, no battery. Then, I had to deal with using my MacBook as a desktop, and more recently, it's starting to get really hard to turn the laptop on. To make it work, I have to connect and disconnect the charger from the DC power jack socket until the green light turns on. At that light, should I say, it's also starting to present problem too. I'm so (bad word here) that a new 60W MagSafe power adapter costs so much money (US$79 plus taxes) that it's preferable let it the way it is.

    No good value.

    For this price id like a personal message from Tim saying sorry. A blown fuse I can handle but when it stops working at a gig with no way of fixing its a sad situation. This has never happened to any of my other laptops. For this price you expect quality materials. Shielded cable to prevent tearing inside.

    Needs update

    This is my second charger. The one my Macbook Pro came with in 2011 was perfect up until a few months ago. I had to finally purchase a new one after 5 years. The new one I have already has issues and keeps loosing connection. After paying $79, you'd think it would last just as long as the first one that I had! Apple needs to find out what has changed and fix it fast!

    Why, Why, why

    Same with everyone else. Ordering my 3 charger. Would order from Amazon and eBay but great knockoffs. Design is flawed. The skinny wire started to pull away from the unit and eventually stopped working due to exposed wires. Contemplating whether to wrap some electrical tape around the new one when I get it.

    There are two many one starts on this Apple.........

    Rip Off

    Breaks easily and is ridiculously expensive to replace. $130 for a power cable.

    Caught on fire!

    The cable frayed near the box. Plugged it in, turn around and saw that sparks were flying off it, whenever I moved it would get worse, smoking and emitting little bursts of flames. Had to get someone else to run in and unplug it for me. Could easily have set the house on fire.
