    It's OK

    The charger seems to get really hot, so keep it above surfaces, and they die too quickly as a result from the overheating.

    Mine Broke and is too expensive

    The small part of the cable that attaches to the larger body snapped off. Very Poorly made.

    powerless adapter!

    ive just had problems with my second magsafe power adapter in 12 months. thats only with this macbook too. i had the model before this and the slightly older adapter. i went through 3 of these. the battery charger for my 8 quid asda phone is more durable.
    the price we apple customers are expected to pay for this sub standard bit of kit is crazy. please sort this out apple. once and for all.

    Replaced twice in last year

    I have had my MacBook Pro now for about a year and now have had the power adapter go out for the the 2nd time. I am a loyal Apple customer, because of the quality of Apple products as a whole, but this particular item STINKS!

    My only Apple complaint

    I love anything Apple, but these chargers are the WORST. I have replaced them 4 times. The last one was the new design, so neither design is worthy of the Apple name.

    Does NOT last!!!

    I've had my Macbook Pro for almost 1.5 years now. I had to replace the charger about 5 months ago, now AGAIN because it literally JUST broke for no reason!!! I'm a college student, i don't have the money to keep replacing an $80 charger. Right now, if i had the money, i'd get a new laptop from HP or Dell because their stuff LAST and is not sooooo expensive!

    This cable is unacceptable in any way shape or form. i had too buy a new cable 2 months after i got my macbook in august of last year. Now my cable is showing the same signs of charging intermittently or not at all! For the quality of the item the price is outrageous.
    20$ MAXIMUM is what should be paid for this. As a student i can only PRAY that my cable lasts till mid january and the next half of my student loan comes in so i can get a new one.

    Why don't Apple listen?

    I'm obviously not on my own here in being sick to the back teeth about this charger. I am now awaiting my 5th having received my 4th last week. Within a few days the charging symbol on my Mac kept on switching to 'Not charging', as well as the charger itself getting extremely hot.

    This was my first experience of the new charger which, I had hoped, had been introduced as an improvement on the former style. Clearly I was wrong! The question is, do I go for non-Apple chargers next time, as clearly Apple are perfectly contented in continuing to receive the dosh for a 4th rate product

    Apple Built Something To Last For Approx. 1-2 Years?

    Apple ignore the issue while US residents got settlement because of court settlement, not voluntarily. Though I'm in other country also affected. When many customers face the same issue this must product defect.

    I've never been so disgusted with a product.

    Apple, take note, you need to make a new charger, not send out replacements to the same people 3-4 times a year.

    I'm on my 4th Charger now, (6th if you include the knock off's that have also failed)
    I've payed over £200 on replacing my macbook chargers, pretty much a quarter of what i payed for the actual macbook itself.

    Stop acting like its the customers who are at fault for your faulty technology and update it with a more robust wire, and a more robust shell.
    Have a look at the reviews from the product for proof that it is a piece of ****

    Needs to be stronger

    I have had my macbook pro for about 1.5 years and I have had to replace this charger twice and recently had to buy a new one. This charger NEEDS to be more durable.

    The cable shiled was broke

    I used this adapter for 2.5 years, and this morning i've got it's cable shield was flake off..and OMG it can't working anymore. Whereas, i must work my thesis. I guess the cable can't resist the HEAT. I have to buy a new one so that my lovely macqy will work again. But as student it's hard to me about the price.

    doesn't even last a year

    I try to take extremely good care of my electronics, but I am currently on my second charger this year! I got my MacBook Pro august last year and had to replace its charger a few months ago in June. it isn't been the new year and it already broke. literally no electricity goes through it. if my chargers are going to break this often, i think apple should lower the price to $10. because its most certainly not worth the $80 they're asking for.

    2nd charger in less than 2 years

    I'm very happy with my Mac Book however, this is the 2nd Adapter that failed in about less than 2 years of usage. I'm averaging about less than 1 adapter a year. Obviously, there is something wrong with the design! Please fix this Apple engineers. This is simply not acceptable.

    I got my MacBook back in August, and only about three months after, the piece that snaps into the charging port broke off. I just stuck the charger back into it and taped it to the computer, and that worked fine for a while, but recently it started saying "Not Charging" when it was plugged in and the little light was very very dim. Now it has completely stopped working, I have a dead MacBook that I can do nothing with, and I really don't feel like paying $80 for another charger that will just do the same thing in a few more months. You see all these bad reviews, Apple, do something to fix the problem.

    Waste of money

    I have had my Mac since 09 when I graduated, my adapater worked fine for nearly two years. Then it would start blinking in and out and I would wiggle it a litle til it worked again, that worked for like a week then it stopped working all together. So I paid up and got the newest one, it was a little different then the first one I had, and it worked a-OK for a total of about five months. And without any warning at ALL, it just quit working. There is no way I can afford spending $80 every few months because Apple decides to make ***** products. I love my Mac, but I am not going to waste my money more then once.

    Adapter FAILS

    I've had my adapter for a little less than a year. I'm always really careful with it. All of a sudden, IT DOESN'T WORK!

    Now, I'm 3 hours away from the nearest retailer and need to study for finals. All my notes are on my mac, and I CANNOT CHARGE IT. So apple has screwed me over for finals, and the $80 I'm going to have to pay to replace the adapter. NOT IMPRESSED.

    Rubbish cables

    I had the same problem with my ibook adapter. The connection breaks by the plug that goes into the computer. Now after 2 years my Macbook cable has done the same. It is awful when you pay 3 times the amount for a mac than you would pay for a PC, and have parts that are this unreliable and badly made. This really is the worst part about Macs.
    Apple, fix this issue. i think you can see your customers are not happy.
