    Needs work

    I've had the same MacBook for 5 years but I've replaced this MagSafe three times due to cord breakage/wear at the connection to the box. I'm not abusive with the cord at all but I do use the MacBook a lot. My current adapter is wrapped with electrical tape in all the vulnerable spots, which seems to be helping but this is definitely not a durable product.

    Horrible product

    I am now buying the third charger since January, (8 months.) For $80 this should not be happening this frequently. I bought a mac so that it would last, not to be having to shell out money for up keep every 4 months. From the looks of it, this has been an ongoing problem and should have been fixed a long time ago.

    They all break

    I had my Mac for a almost two years and the power cord stopped working, the price cheaper than one for my PC, and that one stopped working around the same time, so I guess inevitably they all break Apple or PC. However, I'm not sure if it broke because of design or being on the floor, all in all, it held up well and functions as described so I dont mind buying a new one...

    Really Apple?!?!

    This power cord is awful, i have had more trouble with it then necessary! I have had my MBP for about a year and this will be my second one, luckily I bought the extended warranty so they are going to replace it for free. But still, ridiculous. BRING BACK THE T-STYLE CHARGER!!!!!

    Come on Apple

    Seriously! You have built this reputation as a provider of solid durable goods such as the mac, but you make a worthless charger to support the computer. My charger lasted 13 months before dying. I hope Apple is enjoying the markup on this charger because you are making a killing. Zero Stars!!

    Cord burned through

    I've had my power cord (the second I have purchased in one year) burn through, without any apparent reason. If my husband hadn't discovered the burning cord our house would have burned down. Obviously the cords have serious problems, and if Apple does not want to get sued over this, they better fix the problem QUICK as well as lower the prices which are completely unreasonable.

    Seriously, I am a poor college student and I bought this adaptor less than 2 weeks ago. It's already stopped working. This is ridiculous. I spend TOO much money on this laptop to have to worry about spending $80 on a power cord. at least lower the price of these useless cords. I can't afford this. PLEASE HELP

    I purchased my Macbook in the summer of 2007 and I'm currently having problems with my 6th cord, soon to need a 7th! That is 7 cords in 4 years, 3 of which, replaced in the last 5 months. The first few were wear and tear, frayed in all the usual spots. The last few are unexplainable. Frustrated.

    Worst charger ever!

    I am now about to purchase my 4th charger for my 2 year old MacBook. The charger lasts about 6 months maximum before it dies.

    Annual replacement

    I've had my Macbook for almost 4 years and I'm buying cord #4. The design is great the quality and durability are the worst ever. This last one only lasted 8 months. Every time I buy another one the "I'm being ripped off" sensation runs through me. Made in China.

    A Disappointed Customer

    This is just unacceptable and disgraceful. The greatness and power you have earned from hard work is totally defeated by this faulty charger. Mine lasted three months, and now I have to pay $80 dollars for a new one JUST so I can use my laptop? Absurd. If you really cared about your customers, you were either A) Stop producing god-awful chargers, or B) Sell them for around $15 or less. Come on, this isn't the quality of product I've grown to expect from you guys. Shame on you.

    And on to the next...

    Worst charger ever. Mine died again tonight. I will go purchase my THIRD one tomorrow. Apple is definitely making money off these charges because consumers have no choice but to go buy a new charger, otherwise Macbook is a paperweight. I LOVE Apple/Mac products and have converted several people from PCs to Mac, but this charger is JUNK.

    Thanks Apple. Another $84.

    MacBook Power Cord

    I have owned my MacBook since December 2007, which included the power cord. Having witnessed what my son and husband's cords have done previously with every day use at home and at work, I decided to take extra care not to cause any unnecessary pull on the cord. In other words, I've babied my power cord. Now in 2011 I am having problems with the power cord in the usual place. At the white squared adapter where the narrower cord goes into it.
    I just found out how much it will cost me to replace it and I can't believe it! $82 at BestBuys and $79 through Apple. OH COME ON APPLE! You can do better for your loyal customers! The adapter is defective and not built to take the every day use unless it's babied. I have had power cords to other equipment for years that I use and they have held up far better than the outrageously priced power cords you make.
    You owe it to your loyal customers to produce a power cord that can last much longer than a year or two.

    Not good...not good at all...

    Just ordered my 3rd power adapter for my 1yr old 13MBP. This time I'm trying the 85w to see if it last any longer than the 60w.
    Apple, get your head out of your phones and start making quality computer products again.
    I won't even start on the pathetic path you've chosen for your software...or lack there of.

When I can get my hands on a working charger.

    The Original T magsafe was much better.

    I have been in to apple and they have replaced my magsafe adapters (for 17Inch MBP and 13 in aluminum MB 3-4 times now. I have never seen a worse power adapter. At this rate, they need to make replacements free forever. I love all Apple products, but i have to say this defeats the greatness of their laptops. This also applies to the 85w magsafe L style. (Never had this problem with the T style)
