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 sure if this is the right power adapter for your Mac?

    Knowing which specific Mac model you have is important. If you are running OS X Lion (10.7) or later, go to the “” menu at the top left of your screen, choose “About this Mac” then click the “More Info...” button. Your Mac model and generation will be displayed.

      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.

      Waste of Money

      These chargers are terribly made, I have had to replace mine twice since buying my laptop in 2015.

I am extremely careful and they still fall apart. $79 is way too much for a charger that seems designed to break. I won't be buying a MacBook next time I need a new laptop solely because of the charging cords. I wish I could give this product zero stars.

The adapter stopped working this morning, even though (i) the device had no signs of damage and (ii) the wire did not have any strains. When I explained my situation to a sales representative at my local store, she simply told me that Apple warranty lasts only 1 year and that this adapter should not break as long as it is "treated nicely." I agree with other reviews here that this adapter is designed quite poorly. I am not sure what else I could have done to treat this adapter any nicer, if sitting in an office is enough to make this product stop functioning.

      Getting really hot

      I use my Mac everyday and I have issues with the PowerBox which is getting extremely hot. The cable is also now deteriorated and the bare wires are exposed. It I use my Mac everyday and I have issues with the PowerBox which is getting extremely hot. The cable is also now deteriorated and the bare wires are exposed. It isn't safe and really expensive to purchase. Really disappointed.
