    HOT!

    Ok So I have burned my fingers on the aluminum connector! It doesn't even charge half the time. I have to sit and jiggle it until the orange light comes on. What is going on! And seriously $79!!!!!

    AWFUL DESIGN

    Terribly designed, it falls out of basically every outlet, so you have to prop it up with something. Who thought the heavy-box design on an outlet was a good idea??

    Break often and cost a fortune!

    These chargers are ridiculously overpriced and tend to break a lot. Mine broke and it was simply painful to buy another. Apple should really do something about this.

    Poor Product

    I bought this power adapter less than a year ago and the casing has split open exposing the wires underneath. Apple is a billion dollar company with stock that continues to rise. I don't understand why they can not make a superior power adapter with thicker insulation instead with more resistance to tearing.

    ANNOYED

    My cord went out just like everyone else in here and i have had this mac for a little over a year and I'm not happy that i have to spend more money on a cord that should work. To me that doesn't make any sense whats so ever. The mac book is great but replacing a charger that goes out is not good at all.

    Doesn't last

    I've had my MacBook Pro for about a year and a half now, great laptop, charger worked great, and charged the laptop fast. However, out of nowhere it seems to have a sudden short and will only charge when set in an exact way. It hasn't been mistreated in any way and just suddenly went faulty. Getting a replacement seems way too expensive for what it is.

    New MagSafe Power adaptor

    We have gone through two $79 magsafe power adapters in the last 14 months. You have to admit that the design is very cool in appearance, however the devise doesn't last. Apple really needs to take a look at what people are saying in these on-lin reviews and redesign the charger. The problem is with the magnetic connector which connects into the MacBook. We have found that this is the weak link in the charger and the connector fails within about 7 months under normal use. Replacing these chargers is getting rather expensive and frustrating. APPLE ENGINEERS - WAKE UP AND PLEASE READ THESE REVIEWS!!!!

    Laptop = Awesome, Charger = BAD Design

    Love my Macbook - everything seems to be designed better than any laptop I've ever had. Except for the cool mag-lock power attachment. The seemingly simple design clearly has a flaw that has been longstanding. Just read reviews or search google and you will see what happens to the wire around the fancy connector after only a few months of even "careful" use.

    This power cord is meant to power the laptop, without it you can't use the laptop. I'm disappointed Apple has placed form over function on this key piece of the user experience. There are now secondary market tools to prevent fraying of the cord. A wise investment, until hopefully Apple smartens up and makes a cord connector that isn't overpriced and lasts longer than the current version.

    Come on Apple!

    My first charger last for about two years, this one about a year and of course it has a short, still charges, but it always painfully hot to the touch. I am disappointed in the charger quality because apple has such good computers. I only wish it wasn't like changing your oil -- something you have to do on a regular basis. C'mon apple! You can do it so much better!

    ANYBODY OUT THERE LISTENING???

    I am now on my THIRD apple charger. The computer isn't even two years old ! All chargers were bought from certified dealers. Come on Apple look at all the bad reviews ! Just because you have a good product in your Macbook Pros doesn't mean you have to rest on your laurels ! WE NEED A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO THIS CHARGER or if you can't do that, at least cut the price in 1/2 ! This is crazy ! Money doesn't grow on trees and the economy is tough enough without having to rebuy things that should last longer than 10 months ! BACK UP YOUR PRODUCTS DURABILITY PLEASE ! I was forced to put a one star rating in order to get this review posted.

    Dead in 16 months

    Count me in as another unsatisfied customer whose adapter shorted out and died within 16 months. It only took about 24 hours from the time I noticed the light was flickering on and off to sudden death. In the meantime, I was twisting it, turning it and tying it in knots to get it to work. When I saw the price of the replacement, I nearly fell out of my seat. Also, replacement Apple adapters are super hard to find when you need one in an emergency. Looks like I can either drive to Boulder (an hour each way) or pay ridiculous prices on top of the already exorbitant price for fast shipping.

    Seriously?

    Come on. .Apple can make fabulous products but their power cord breaks in a few months of normal use? It consistently begins to wear where the cord to the computer meets the transformer. I have 3 macbooks in my family and I'm about to go through the 3rd one in a year. Time to start making some noise about this problem. I say make the rubber covering thicker or make the cord swivel or something. like that.

    GARBAGE - 0 STARS

    this is the absolute worst design for a charger...EVER! I have gone through 3 already! The Genius Bar guy told me that it must be something that I was doing to cause it to break and pointed to the many permanently fixed laptops that the store has and stated that they have never had a problem. Seriously? You mean to tell me that you don't have 8342 customers a day that come in with the same problem? I figured I'd fix the problem by taping it as soon as I got home. Guess what? It doesn't help! I will be returning, once again, to the store tomorrow to get a new one! Argh! I'm going to start charging Apple for my gas and parking fee!!!

    Unimpressed

    I initially bought this "redesigned" charger to replace my old one. I am extremely disappointed. The new charger has a very difficult time staying in my computer. It constantly falls out and has a hard time attaching. The apple store no longer sales the old charger so I am stuck with something that does not function properly. :(

    This power adapter is awful

    Just confirming that these chargers last less than a year. Although I must say that it is my daugter's chargers that have failed twice. I've had a couple that have lasted about 15 months so far.

    Spontaneously Breaks

    I bought my macbook pro June 2011. Since then, (Sept, 2011-now) I've had to replace the power adapter twice. It looks great and works perfect 99 percent of the time, but when it stops working, it's pretty essential and it doesn't just start working again. I have the Apple Care program, so I get them replaced for free. But being a medical student, it is a hassel to go with out my compter for even a few hours.

    Terrible product.

    Bought in January- broken by September. It was never pulled up by either chord, and always held in the center, and still-broken. Terrible product.
