    Not durable; starting to breaking after 16 months

    The insulator has torn/ cracked near the connecting part of the charger revealing the inside wiring.

    Absolute rubbish

    I've gone through about three chargers in the past year alone. I am very careful with them and they constantly break. For something so expensive it really ought to be better quality.

    I will admit that I like the style of charger, the magnet is definitely a good idea to prevent cord breakage when it gets accidentally ripped out. However, I do not enjoy the fact that I have been through six (6) chargers within the 2.5 year span I've had my macbook. I'm on my way to seven (7) as my current one has the same issues as all the others. The cable or the magnet, I'm not sure which, does not like to charge, nor does the LED come on to show it's charging, I assume poor connection or faulty wiring in the cable it's self. Currently, I have my adapter taped to my macbook as it's the only way it will charge. It's disheartening that as I as a consumer choose to spend a great deal on a productthat is meant to be lasting, however I am still having these issues. I'm also disappointed that this is a known issue yet nothing has been done to try and rectify it.

    Dreadful - prone to breaking

    Been through two in less than two years. Badly designed/made - can't take reasonable everyday wear and tear.

    Horrible charger. The one for my old mac is still going many years later but this one is new and already broken. Light does not go on, it does not charge. I have not done anything to this charger to damage it. Poor quality product. Apple needs to re-design. The old chargers were much better. I hope you read these reviews because I'm not the only one with this problem. You need to fix this problem, Apple!

    Lasted five years

    Compared to my horrible Dell chargers this Apple product is wonderful . However, the cord finally wore out tonight. It could have lasted longer with some inexpensive strengthening right at the electro-magnetic connector. Not as bad as cables for the iPhone that always break within months. The mystery continues. Why so cheap, Apple?

    power rubbish

    I have had three power adaptors now and its no good I will be on my 4th time at £65 a time it's crazy. Apple please please do something about it, I love the gear but you are costing me more for something that is just not fit for purpose. I would love to give more of a hight star rating so help us Apple lovers.

    Breaks too fast

    I've had my computer for a little bit over a year, and my macbook charger has already broken. I can't afford to buy a new charger every year!!

    Total Disregard!

    I've had my Mac Book Pro for 1 yr and I'm having to replace for ($79) a power cord. Please, this is so out of sync with the Apple mystic of quality. I hate feeling ripped off. Apparently based on many negative reviews similar to mine this is a serious problem. Through normal use and much care, this did not prevent this cord from failing. I want my money back and don't feel I should have to replace this piece of trash.

    I bought my mac 2 years ago, i've had 3 chargers in that time. All of them have stopped working for apparently the same reason. The bit that connects to the laptop isn't receiving any power. They also constantly get way too hot to have it on my lap. In my honest opinion I would buy a laptop from another brand.

    when they work they are great. I use the extension cord piece that plugs into the charger so I cannot comment on how the physical charger is too heavy to hang from an outlet as others have noted.

    My problem is that I am on my way to replace my second charger, this will be my third charger. The last one just stopped charging and the light would not come on in the part that attaches to the Macbook Pro.

    The charger that went bad today, has a pin that will not stay up. If I smack the connector the pin will pop up but then it stays down after plugging into the computer and I get no light at all: no charging.

    I bought my Macbook Pro in Dec, 2010

    less than one star

    I wish that I could rate this product with something less than one star. Love the MacPro, but will not buy another until Apple until they consider the total cost of ownership and convenience. Two adapters at $79 each in a two year period is completely unacceptable.

    Worst Apple product...

    I love Apple. I love my MBP and my iPhone but these power cords are ridiculous. I've had to replace 2 in one year. And this last one only lasted four months...the least Apple could do is replace it for free.

    I hate this power cord!

    This is the second time I've had to replace this power cord. I understand the idea behind it, but in practice, they just don't last.

    MagSafe Power Adapter

    This is a piece of junk. It doesn't stay in the plug. It is so heavy it falls out of the electrical outlet. Does anyone else have difficulty with this staying in the wall plug? It is a pain because this is what powers my computer. Is there another cord that works with the Macbook?

    Worst adaptor ever

    I've had my MBP for a little over 2 years, and i've had 3 die on me. The wires fray. One of them you can actually see the wires. The other went bad on the inside. The guy at the genius bar told me i wasn't taken care of it. I was. These things should be a lot more durable since they're used with a portable device. I never had this problem with my Lombard adaptor. :/

    more like what are you talking about

    I have only had my mac for two years and have been through two chargers. The first one was within warranty and the new one they gave me lasted less than 6 months and because it is now out of warranty i have to buy another one. It is ridiculous. I am not mistreating it at all, I am just a student who is constantly using my laptop and the charger, and the charger obviously are not designed well enough. Also alot of my other uni friends have had the same problem. For such a good company apple needs to sort this out, like seriously, they are SO EXPENSIVE and dont last.

    What are you talking about?

    I have 2 of these, my brother has 2 and my dad has 1 and in all of the 4 years we have owned our laptops none of them have broken. You guys are mistreating your appliances obviously.
