    Just broke my second one.

    The connection broke again. None of the melting wires or breaking plasticy bits other mentioned. as far as i can tell i use my mac fairly normally. i mean, i wouldnt expect this at the very least. i mostly use it sitting on my bed, with the pug less than a foot away, and absolutely no stress on the wire so i dont know how this happened. i really hope they replace it again :(

    and to the reviewer who said you would recommend this product? its a moot point becuase theres no other option. we just have to live with this.

    I've had my Mac for about 6 months and the charger always dies. I have to move the wire around and bend it a little for it work. It's ridiculous, the old charger was way better. Talk about change and progression, they made this worse.

    Power Adapter

    I love my Mac.Book Had it for over a year. The magnetic power cord is wonderful. Charges great. I have this computer where ever I go. I am ready to go overseas and purchased the plug adapter. I hear the white box is already the converter so I am good to go

    Worse power adapters of any brand

    Bought one of these power adapters and it died after 6 months. It just died. It sits at home so I don't travel with it so it barely gets moved.

    I've had Sony, HP and Dell laptops and all the power adapters are 100 times more durable than these weak Apple power adapters.

    A great way for Apple to make money off accessories because you'll have to buy a new one at least every year.

    Doesn't last.

    The rubber came off after a couple of months and didn't get it replaced by the guarantee, bescasue it was a "cosmetic" problem... Had to tape the whole thing to avoid getting electrecuted...

    This is a perfect item. I really like the fact the cord now exits at a right angle rather than straight out. Extremely pleased.

    Not Good and doesn't last

    The sheathing came off the wires on the original one that came with my macbook and lasted just over 2 years. I had to buy a new one and this one is just over 4 months old and the wires became disconnected and stopped working. Good thing it has a 1 year warranty. Hopefully don't have to replace it again soon.

    Horrible Product. Way too expensive.

    I miss the old white "T" Shaped chargers. I've had this silver "L" shaped charger for less than a year and it's already quitting out on me. I have taken perfect care of this charger, and my computer has remained on my desk 90% of the time, along with my charger..untouched...yet I constantly have to wiggle and move around the cable in order to find a "sweet" spot in order to get my computer to charge. Such a headache. My MacBook Pro is no longer under warranty, which means I would have to pay full price to replace this charge. $80 + tax is way too much. I love Apple...but this is one of the worse designed chargers I have ever seen.

    Why no problems with any of my MagSafe adapters?

    I've used the MagSafe adapters without any problems since they were first introduced.

    Between home and office, I've bought well over over a dozen MacBooks and MacBook Pro's for myself, my family and my staff, starting with three early 1.83 GHZ MacBooks, then two 2.0 GHZ 13" MacBooks, then moving to 2.2 GHZ & 2.4 GHZ 13"MacBookPro's, three 15" MacBook Pro's, two 17" MB Pro's and two 13" MB Pro's. Not a single Apple brand MagSafe power adapter has ever failed, though we have had problems with some "bargain-priced" aftermarket clones from Asia.

    As far as my experience goes, the only Apple ones that stop working have had their magnetic connectors stepped on. Aside from that, the only issues we've had are the result of using the hard plastic MacBook covers; some of them prevent the connector from fitting securely in its recepticle.

    I bought my first Macbook pro in Dec of 2010 and have been satisfied with everything, except the charger. FIrst of all, I take care of all of my electronics with SPECIAL care because I am not at a good economical position in life right now.(especially my mac). My charger recently died, i assume because it shocked me while i was plugged it in and hasn't worked since. I have tried charging my macbook pro on other outlets but it doesn't work. I'm on my last charge so if you buy this be aware that you might have to buy the same product even if its JUST 3 months old.

    When to bed last night and everything was fine only to wake up this morning to my charger no longer working. Wasn't sure what was going on since I never had this problem with my other Mac that I had for over 3 yrs. Luckily the charger for that one still works when the one I've had less than 1 yr has failed.

    I've gone through 2 of these chargers, the most recent one that broke just came right out from the magnet. After reading all the reviews you would think that Apple would design a better charger or make a stronger cable or at least make a better connection between the wire and the magnet. It makes me sad to see everyone having the same issues with this charger and Apple doing nothing to make it better yet still charging an insane amount for a new one. If they are going to break this often than Apple needs to either redesign it or lower the price to about 5 dollars, cause that's all they are really worth

    New Power Cable Design

    I recently had to replace my existing power cord for my MacBook and so had to purchase the newly designed power cable. The modification to the magnetic end that plugs into the laptop is RUBBISH - it is always at an awkward angle - what was wrong with the old design? Additionally, it still has the same problem as the one I just replaced - where the end comes out of the square apple battery to the computer is awkward and makes it very easy to damage.

    terrible product

    these always break. i've constantly taken care to treat these gently but there's inevitably either wire issues or it just burns out. about to purchase my third charger in about 2 years. ridiculous, not to mention way too expensive.

    the idea is great, having a magnet that attaches the power cord to the computer, however, the quality is just not there. I'm disappointed that apple charges SO much for such an awful product. i had my MacBook for less then a year when i started to have problems with it. the sad thing is, it doesn't leave my desk. I could (maybe) understand if i were constantly wrapping and unwrapping it. Also, the new one doesn't fit with my cover on!

    power cord stinks!

    My husband just got back from buying our THIRD power cord since we got this computer a couple of years ago. Its ridiculous!! Why in the heck do they wear out so fast. That should not be happening and I am very disappointed!!!!

    New connector plug may not work with some macbook covers

    I just got the adapter as a backup for my macbook (original still works), so I don't know how well it will hold up, but it seems to be built well. The problem I encountered was that the new connector, that seems designed for the macbook air, is blocked from plugging in by the hard plastic cover that I got for it. I was able to chisel out the plastic cover enough to get it to work, but it seems a design flaw to use an L connector that hugs the mac so closely.
