    Expensive loco

    Very expensive, gets disconnected all the time, sorry but this was poorly designed. Apple just maintained the esthetic character, but forgot about the functionality.

    Im sorry but this Loco muy loco y Malo

    Failed Power Cord. Poor Design.

    Like most other reviewers, the wires in my 45W MagSafe Power Adapter for my 2011 MacBook Air started to come out of the very thin power supply wire after a mere ten months of use and now must be replaced. Because my laptop is 19 days out of warranty, Apple has refused to replace my power adapter. I love using Apple products but, clearly, this power adapter has a faulty design, and Apple has put forth no effort in solving the customer satisfaction problem for those of us who have "new" laptops that are "out of warranty." An Apple-designed power cord, regardless of the cost, should last more than ten months.

    Very disappointed!

    Wire wrapping failed

    The rubber cable sheath has failed after 12 months of home use. Wires are exposed. Now I have to replace it for 80 bucks? Terrible. Only Apple product failure that I have ever encountered.

    Very frustrating

    I plug it in and sometimes the light goes on and it is charging, and sometimes it doesn't. For no apparent reason it will or won't charge, and I get progressively more anxious as the battery icon gets lower and lower. I noticed on the newer MacAir computers there is a different connection. I wish I could get it for my two year old MacAir, but the person in the store said the new one will not work on my older machine.

    MBA 45W Charger

    Really poor quality. I have had 3 in 4 years. Spring loaded pins fail, and the most recent one had a stress fracture in the cable. All fine if you live in London and can go buy another for the not great price gbp65, but when you are in Africa, a dead charger = dead laptop.

    We're ANGRY!

    Can we give this no star? This product does not last, and now my boyfriend and I take turns buying the adapter every month. I guess it's your turn, darling.

    The cord breaks

    I've owned an ibook for 6 years and changed the cord once. This cord though, very badly built. Mine is broken on 2 different parts, and I expect it will soon stop working. However careful I am with this cord, I mean it's a computer, the connection with the actual compute is where it breaks at this point because of the way it's made. Why doesn't it work like the older macbooks. I think these new versions are meant to break down. Disappointed in this product.

    Mine Failed Too

    I thought it was just me until I saw the reviews on this power adapter. Mine just stopped after 13 months. What a shame. I've been so happy with the 11 inch Air. Great computer. I've owned a lot of PCs over the years, and this is the first time in my life that a power adapter has failed. It looks like I'm not alone. Shame on you Apple!

    The cord will fail

    I had my MBA 2011 (late) for 4 months before the cord just stopped charging the laptop. Now, after 1.5 years it has completely stopped. My MBA battery works great and my brothers new charger that came with his laptop charges my laptop fine, I can safely say (just like everyone else) this charger is terrible and will fail you.

    Power adapter

    Have owned Mac Air for 3 years ..have replaced power adapter every year...now $80... Breaks at connection between the power body and where cord exits....you would think given Apples amazing engineering they would have come up with a better design...come Apple you can do better...don't become mediocre like Microsoft!

    Junk

    Okay, so I'm not allowed to write more than a handful words, so let's summarize:

    Breaks after 9 months. No yanks, no pulls, only domestic use. Piece of flimsy junk.

    Only lasted five months

    Five months after a new macbook air purchase the power adapter wire coating split open and it wouldn't charge... no green light. I had to have it immediately and the apple store is over an hour away... so in desperation my husband cut the wire and fixed it with some wire nuts and taped it back together. Now it is U G L Y but it works. I can already see where the wire in other places is bulging out and looks like a split is about to happen again.

    When is Apple going to fix this?

    Wish I had read these reviews before I bought my MacBook Air. Computer is just one month out of warranty and the power cord is already shot.

    Looks nice but fails fast

    I like the design. A lot. It's light, always fits in your bag and it's magnetic. However, after 13 months of usage (that is, charging my Air maybe like 20 times because my Thunderbolt screen does the charging mainly) it failed.

    I've treated it with a lot of care, because I know how fragile these things are. But this is kinda ridiculous. I'll make sure it gets replaced for free, warranty or not. It's just so disappointing that it's going to take me a lot of talking just to get what I paid for.

    Disappointed!

    $80 for a new charger, you got to be kidding me -___- I've had my Macbook Air for almost a year and I can't believe the adapter has already broken. I thought it was just me until I read the reviews. Shame shame shame.

    Faulty chargers

    We have had our MacBook Pro for 7 months and we are already on our second charger! They just all of a sudden stop working! So far been replaced under warranty but hate to think what happens when laptop comes out of warranty!

    Disapppointed

    The first power cord I had (the one that came with the computer) worked fine for about two years. Ive had two replacement cords since then, and they have both lasted less than 2 months before they started to fail. Am I supposed to pay $80 every couple of months for power adapters? That is completely ridiculous!

    Unreliable

    I bought my MacBook Air in 2011. The adapter began to have issues within a year. Now it is completely out of warranty and has stopped working altogether. I'm shelling out the $79 bucks to buy a new one but am not confident it will solve the problem because when I took the laptop and cord to an Apple store (an hour away) it worked fine. That was a month ago. Now it won't work at all. There is nothing worse than troubleshooting a problem that will not even replicate itself reliably. LOL. Love the MacBook but hate the adapter.
