Apple 60W MagSafe Power Adapter (for MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro)

Get help buying. or call 0800-692-7753.
  • Overview

    The 60 Watt MagSafe Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector that ensures your power cable will disconnect if it experiences undue strain and helps prevent fraying or weakening of the cables over time. In addition, the magnetic DC helps guide the plug into the system for a quick and secure connection.

    When the connection is secure, an LED located at the head of the DC connector will light up; an amber light lets you know that your portable is charging, while a green light tells you that you have a full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives users an even easier and more compact way to travel.

    Designed to be the perfect travelling companion, the adapter has a clever design that allows the DC cable to be wound neatly around itself for easy cable storage.

    This power adapter recharges the lithium polymer battery while the system is off, on, or in sleep mode. It also powers the system if you choose to operate without a battery.

    Compatible with MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Pro.

      Power adaptors do not last

      Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. S Apple needs to rethink the design of the Magsafe power adaptors. I have bought replacement Magsafe Power adaptors in the past because they don't always last. Sometimes 1-2 years but this recent one only lasted 3 months. At $80 per adaptor this is ridiculous. Read online, many consumers have had the same issues.

      Dear Apple

      I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple yea I want to love you. I really, really do. You're making it difficult though. I couldn't blame you when my old, T-style power adapter broke after a couple years. I was even excited when I saw the sleek, new, redesigned L-style. However, that one broke too- but this time, it was after only about two months. I tried not to take it out on you, and figured that maybe I got the one bad one in the batch, or that maybe I had been too rough with it. But here I am, typing away, pausing occasionally to wiggle the cord in order to get it to work again- for a few seconds at least. Yes, thats right, my SECOND L-style magsafe has broken, also after only a couple months. Finally, I'm realizing that it's not me, it's YOU. And you just don't seem to realize that. I called Apple support only to be told that there are "no known issues" with the L-style magsafe adapter. Oh really? Dearest apple, do you ever read the reviews your products receive? Obviously there is a known issue, and its that this product simply doesn't work if you use it for more than a month! I've enjoyed your sleek design and better usability, but honestly, I think I'm leaving you. For a PC.

Have had it a total of maybe, 2-3 weeks and if I want to charge my laptop the cable has to be put into a very specific position. Also the metal head that connects to your macbook gets very hot and can burn you. I will be requesting a replacement and would hope that apple would stop using cheap materials and over charging because of their brand.

      They don't last long

      I have lost count of the number of MagSafe chargers I have had to replace over the years. They are overpriced and likely to go wrong after a year or so. I would I have lost count of the number of MagSafe chargers I have had to replace over the years. They are overpriced and likely to go wrong after a year or so. I would expect much better, considering that my Macbooks are supposed to be "pro" models. Unfortunately there is no real alternative if one wants to power a Macbook. Cheap "no-name" power supplies are too much of a risk.

      This is a steal! :)

This charging cable has been absolutely fine, the only fault I've come across "lately" is sometimes it just won't notice it's plugged in at the power brick area and to fix it I simply just pull it out and push it back in. Which isn't a big deal, but when I get around to it I will purchase this for $97.90. People should really take better care of their products, all these 1 star reviews? And $97.90 for 6 years, that's nothing. Good charger, great last-ability.

      All this hate for this product seems ? - Not from me.

      Weird all this hate for this product. Granted the 60W adaptor i have with my macbook is the ORIGINAL from 2010, and not a replacement ... Perhaps newer one Weird all this hate for this product. Granted the 60W adaptor i have with my macbook is the ORIGINAL from 2010, and not a replacement ... Perhaps newer ones are made to inferior standards? - Lower quality material to cut costs etc? Apart from being grubby, the cables, both from the power socket to the adaptor & the mag-safe cable to the macbook, are in perfect condition! - Adaptor itself is doing its job nicely, with zero problems in nearly 8 years now. Go figure ... But i won't be getting on the hate band waggon, when i personally have had zero issues! Five Stars!
