    Apple Built Something To Last For Approx. 1-2 Years?

    Apple ignore the issue while US residents got settlement because of court settlement, not voluntarily. Though I'm in other country also affected. When many customers face the same issue this must product defect.

    I've never been so disgusted with a product.

    Apple, take note, you need to make a new charger, not send out replacements to the same people 3-4 times a year.

    I'm on my 4th Charger now, (6th if you include the knock off's that have also failed)
    I've payed over £200 on replacing my macbook chargers, pretty much a quarter of what i payed for the actual macbook itself.

    Stop acting like its the customers who are at fault for your faulty technology and update it with a more robust wire, and a more robust shell.
    Have a look at the reviews from the product for proof that it is a piece of ****

    Needs to be stronger

    I have had my macbook pro for about 1.5 years and I have had to replace this charger twice and recently had to buy a new one. This charger NEEDS to be more durable.

    The cable shiled was broke

    I used this adapter for 2.5 years, and this morning i've got it's cable shield was flake off..and OMG it can't working anymore. Whereas, i must work my thesis. I guess the cable can't resist the HEAT. I have to buy a new one so that my lovely macqy will work again. But as student it's hard to me about the price.

    doesn't even last a year

    I try to take extremely good care of my electronics, but I am currently on my second charger this year! I got my MacBook Pro august last year and had to replace its charger a few months ago in June. it isn't been the new year and it already broke. literally no electricity goes through it. if my chargers are going to break this often, i think apple should lower the price to $10. because its most certainly not worth the $80 they're asking for.

    2nd charger in less than 2 years

    I'm very happy with my Mac Book however, this is the 2nd Adapter that failed in about less than 2 years of usage. I'm averaging about less than 1 adapter a year. Obviously, there is something wrong with the design! Please fix this Apple engineers. This is simply not acceptable.

    Seriously?

    I got my MacBook back in August, and only about three months after, the piece that snaps into the charging port broke off. I just stuck the charger back into it and taped it to the computer, and that worked fine for a while, but recently it started saying "Not Charging" when it was plugged in and the little light was very very dim. Now it has completely stopped working, I have a dead MacBook that I can do nothing with, and I really don't feel like paying $80 for another charger that will just do the same thing in a few more months. You see all these bad reviews, Apple, do something to fix the problem.

    Waste of money

    I have had my Mac since 09 when I graduated, my adapater worked fine for nearly two years. Then it would start blinking in and out and I would wiggle it a litle til it worked again, that worked for like a week then it stopped working all together. So I paid up and got the newest one, it was a little different then the first one I had, and it worked a-OK for a total of about five months. And without any warning at ALL, it just quit working. There is no way I can afford spending $80 every few months because Apple decides to make ***** products. I love my Mac, but I am not going to waste my money more then once.

    Adapter FAILS

    I've had my adapter for a little less than a year. I'm always really careful with it. All of a sudden, IT DOESN'T WORK!

    Now, I'm 3 hours away from the nearest retailer and need to study for finals. All my notes are on my mac, and I CANNOT CHARGE IT. So apple has screwed me over for finals, and the $80 I'm going to have to pay to replace the adapter. NOT IMPRESSED.

    Rubbish cables

    I had the same problem with my ibook adapter. The connection breaks by the plug that goes into the computer. Now after 2 years my Macbook cable has done the same. It is awful when you pay 3 times the amount for a mac than you would pay for a PC, and have parts that are this unreliable and badly made. This really is the worst part about Macs.
    Apple, fix this issue. i think you can see your customers are not happy.

    New Power Adapter

    I just bought a new MacBook Air this summer and my adapter just failed also. While it is good that the cord disconnects easily if stressed, it is too short and awkward to attach if something else is plugged in. Not up to Apple's standards.......

    MagSafe

    Apple, you are UNSAT!!! Everyone in this forum buys apple products because we try to be a believer and actually love the products you make; however, making them so they only last a year or two is bull. My computer works fine, I only have one problem. I CAN'T CHARGE IT BECAUSE OF AN ADAPTER THAT HAS ALREADY FAILED. AND NOW I HAVE TO SPEND $80 TO BUY A NEW ONE. THANKS APPLE.

    Garbage

    This is a piece of garbage it would only work in specific outlets and then the other day it stopped working all together and I couldn't figure out why until I tried to undue the cord from the computer and the cord pulled right out of the connector leaving the magnet still attached to my computer.....needless to say I was irritated with such a poorly constructed equipment.

    failed charger

    I was just working on my laptop and heard a loud "pop" and noticed smoke coming out of my charger!! It is now dead......
    I have heard about charger problems from others. Not only do I have a dead charger, but if I had not unplugged it immediately it probably would have been a fire hazard.
    This is very disappointing as I have been so happy with Apple products overall.
    Does anyone know if Apple has fixed the issues with these chargers and if they are providing replacements at no cost or reduced cost?? or do I just have to buy another one and take my chances??

    worst product apple makes

    the original charger that came with my macbook back in 2008 used to work great but broke last year. Since then i have gone through 5 of them and spent roughly $400 just on chargers. This has to be the worst product that apple makes. Apple get your act together and make a charger that will last so i don't have to spend $80 on a new one every couple of months.

    Very, Very Lame.

    This is definitely the worst charger i have ever used, by a long shot. Me and many of my friends have macs, and theirs broke within 6 months.
    I was very cautious with mine, yet still it managed to break one year after my original purchase.
    The only hazard this ever encountered was the hazard of having it in my backpack.
    no drops, no stepping on it, nothing.
    I would only recommend it to someone who will never let i leave their desk, because it has a major design flaw preventing moving it around in full safety.

    Rubbish for 4 reasons

    Reason 1. It has, like so many others, it failed within months.
    Reason 2. Even before it failed, connection, although not terrible, was a bit hit & miss.
    Reason 3. The whole point of the 'saf'e part of the design is that if the cable is caught, it releases...uh...safely. Try tugging the cable from several angles and I guarantee that you'll be able to pull the laptop right off the table from at least a few of them.
    Reason 4. This should be an improvement on the previous 'T-shaped' design. See points 1-3.

    Come on Apple. This is not some add-on accessory. It is absolutely vital and to not have had a recall, when there are clearly some serious defects is a bit of a middle finger to your customers.
