Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter (for MacBook Pro with Retina display)

  • Overview

    The 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone trips over it, the lead disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely. It also 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 lights up; an amber light lets you know that your notebook is charging, while a green light tells you that you have full charge. An AC lead is provided with the adapter for maximum lead length, while the AC wall adapter (also provided) gives you 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 Pro with Retina display.

      NOT GOOD.

      This charger gets extremely hot and the cable is very weak. Not a good design at all had to buy another one. I hope apple refund my money on the product.

      Quality - I think not

I am not a heavy user but the charger had now 'frayed' at the mag 2 connector showing the metal grading around the cable itself. It is a poorly designed and poorly constructed piece of equipment which lets down the whole product. I just wonder what Apple were thinking of.......

Today the cable coming out of the main unit melted exposing the internal wires. In the process it melted a hole in the carpet it was sitting on. Overheating seems to be a recurrent problem with this design. Tomorrow I will see what the Mac Store has to say about this. I assume that they will replace the product for free.

      Why is there not a zero star option for this piece of garbage.

      I've probably gone through about three rolls of electrical tape on the 4 chargers I've had to buy just to try and get an extra 6 months out of them. Flimsy, bad I've probably gone through about three rolls of electrical tape on the 4 chargers I've had to buy just to try and get an extra 6 months out of them. Flimsy, badly designed garbage. And pricing them at £79 is just the icing on the cake.

      Bad design, Apple needs to make a new one.

      The cable will start to overheat after a year and turn yellow. I am surprised there is not a lawsuit yet as this could be a dangerous outcome for many owners le The cable will start to overheat after a year and turn yellow. I am surprised there is not a lawsuit yet as this could be a dangerous outcome for many owners leaving their laptop to charge. Design a new charger Apple. You owe it to your customers.
