    Cheaply made

    No matter how careful you are with this charger, it WILL at some point break down on you. Mine just frayed and burnt.

    Just got to work on a Monday morning with low battery life and discovered I no longer have a charger because the cord is severed where it meets the white square base. Now I have to leave work and drop $80 for a new piece of trash. Apple is losing it and must think their customers are idiots.

    Not Durable

    Charges fine but the point where the charger meets the cable is poor quality and has already worn out after a year of use.

    Not functional

    Bought the 2015 Macbook Air, after having the 2011 edition for years. With that purchase a new type of charger came as well. It's safe to say that I miss the 'L-style MagSafe' which would fit perfectly on the Macbook and would never come loose.

    The new power adapter continuously detaches from the Macbook since it sticks out more than the earlier version. I don't really understand why the design team would change this. So far I can't say much about the quality because I've only been using it for a month.

    Design-wise: not functional at all, very poor job unfortunately.

    Falls off easily, Breaks easily, Super expensive

    This charger is the worst. Its magnet connecting to the laptop is too weak, so it falls off really easily and the laptop always runs out of batteries before I notice it's disconnected. Then after using for a year, the cord just broke off. Couldn't use it anymore. I wanted to buy a new charger from Apple as a replacement but it's so expensive... I mean, $80 for a charger that doesn't charge well and breaks in a year? I might get a knockoff one instead.

    Macbook Achilles' heel

    The charger (and specifically its cord) is the weakest point of all Macbooks. In my experience, you just have to assume it will break at some point and you would not be able to work anymore if you are in a country or remote area out of easy reach of an Apple Store. Bringing a spare charger with you is the only safe option to be sure you get your job done in those cases. Its price, however, adds insult to injury.

    Serious Problems

    I have been an Apple lover since day one. Everything i own is Apple. However, I have been having issues with their cords, computers, really everything. It is a shame how fast a company can fall from grace. It truly makes me sad. I wish I could post pictures so everyone could see how bad this cords really gets after such a short time frame.

    Worst product from Apple ever

    I have been using a macbook air for less than a year, and I already need to get a third charger. Tells a lot about the build quality of this charger. Seriously Apple, this is really bad! You've been nothing but a disappointment to your customers in this regard. I wish I could give zero stars to this instead of one star.

    Charger cord wires exposed.

    My charger cord has unraveled it still works but I run the risk of being Electrocuted from the wires being exposed just to charge your product. This is your product and you want me to spend $79.00 for a replacement. I should be able to return this to the store and have my chord replaced for free. I had my Macbook Pro Since 2012 and this is my third laptop from Mac. Mac WTH WTH! your computers cost way too much to have faulty cords. Not only is it dangerous its inconvenient. The latest cords are faulty I have been using your products for over 10 years but you have to step it up for your customers. I don't spend over $1000 for faulty products. You should reimburse your customers for this.

    As usual, terrible charger

    Once again, the charger for my laptop has come apart. This has happened with EVERY.SINGLE.MAC.I.HAVE.EVER.HAD. Why won't you just make thicker chargers? I have to keep repurchasing chargers for computers because a design flaw causes them to come apart.

    magNOtic charger

    I have been having issues with this charger since the beginning, but tonight, I reached my limit. This magnetic charger DOES NOT stay put! Nothing quite like getting settled in bed with your computer to realize your charger has mysteriously disconnected due to the ridiculously bad magnetic nature of it. Obviously,there is no avoiding this. Apple laptops are the best, and this charger is necessary to work the computer. I just pray that one day, apple will create a charger that actually locks into place, like the iphone 4 charger used to lock into the phone. Please improve this product.

    Obviously faulty and ridiculously overpriced. My admiration for Apple is as frayed and broken as the cord on my power adapter.

    Who designed this?

    After my 3rd charger I just feel the urge to let the world know this is by far the worst piece of tech ever created by any serious brand. The fact that it is so overpriced makes me think it's all part of a big sad joke.

    Bad quality - breaks easily

    Rubber around wire at base of adaptor split within 3 years of careful use - just outside warranty period. Poor.

    I guess my charger lasted longer than most of the reviews I read, nonetheless it is very poorly made and no longer works. I wish Apple would step it up with the quality of ALL chargers as I also have to buy the iPhone cords in bulk. It's like they are made to be disposable.

    Overpriced fragile POS

    I have gotten used to purchasing two of these a year. They are unbelievably delicate chargers. I don't have any problems with any other type of cable for any device that I won, but for some reason I keep having to replace these overpriced MacBook chargers.

    At this point, I've spent enough money on chargers to buy me a new MacBook! What Apple calls normal wear and tear on these chargers is far beyond what I'd classify as normal.

    Stupid charger

    If there is an option for 0 star, i would choose that option.
    My 3rd one guys. They tend to stop working after one year warranty. I will stop buying apple products. Waste of money and time.

    Broke after a year and a half

    I've got an 11 inch mac-air that I use for school and pretty much everything else. It has major power drain, so I generally need it or I have a dead computer. And, about a month ago, the wire casing near the charger end split, and now, about an hour or two ago, the thing has bit the dust. Not cool guys. So not cool. I've had iphone chargers that have literally lasted for more than 5 years, and the mac book one, which I actually need on a daily basis, is the one to break? Seriously?

    Pretty design is simply not robust enough

    I have used laptops for decades and the only power supplies I have had fail are from Apple. Oh, they're very pretty to look at, but these are for portable devices, so they need to be more robust than they are. This design simply doesn't stand up to the normal rigours of a device that lives in a bag, is constantly deployed and re-deployed. I've had to order a few over the years which, along with the many negative reviews, would suggest that this is a well known problem, which is disappointing.

    Is it too much to ask for a PSU that outlives the device is powers?
