Apple 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter for MacBook Air

Get help buying. or call 1800-1651-0525.
  • Overview

    The 45W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter features a magnetic DC connector so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Air 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 a 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 only with MacBook Air featuring MagSafe 2 power port.

      Poor Product

      I've had Macs for over 30 years. By far, the most badly designed accessory for any Macbook or Mac Air or Mac Pro is the AC adapter. No matter how careful you ar I've had Macs for over 30 years. By far, the most badly designed accessory for any Macbook or Mac Air or Mac Pro is the AC adapter. No matter how careful you are, the adapter breaks and shorts out long before it should; it's the Achilles heel of Apple products. At this writing, my early 2014 Macbook Air is like new, but the AC adapter just shorted out. Please, Apple, there's no reason for this.

      Charger broke within 4 months

      After transporting my charger in my backpack, I was surprised to have found the cord to be frayed. Looks like a lot of people are having quality issues as well.

      APPLE FAIL!!! TERRIBLE FOR MOBILE USE.

      This unit needs thicker rubber and stronger cable reinforcement. It works fine so long as you leave it at home or your office. BUT if you need to pack roll it u This unit needs thicker rubber and stronger cable reinforcement. It works fine so long as you leave it at home or your office. BUT if you need to pack roll it up and pack it every day, expect to replace it every year due to cable breakage. It is just to flimsy to stand up to daily transportation. APPLE, stop being so cheap and beef this charger up! What is the purpose of having a portable computer if the components cannot withstand transportation. HP laptop and charger 7 years old and still going. MacBook 6 years old and I am on my 5th charger. SHAME ON YOU!

      Still the best charger around

But I think the Magsafe charger is the best charger on the market, for these 3 features which no other laptop charger has 1. Magsafe i.e. the magnetic connector is awesome, connects quickly, is not fiddly, prevents accidents when cable gets tripped over 2. The charger has a small footprint 3. The prongs fold out for wrapping the cable when travelling I've had my charger as long as my Macbook Air and haven't had any problems with it. All of you complaining about it should ensure you followed Apple's guidelines on how to use it (seach for "Reduce cable strain" as I can't add a link to this review), and especially only unplug it by pulling on the connector and not on the charger body.

      Hand off this product!

Truly disappointed by Apple and how they handled my complaint accusing me of improper handling of the cable. Guess I will change company in the future.
