    60W MagSafe Power Adapter Is Horrible

    I have had my 13" MacBook Pro for a little over two months. The power adapter just quit working. I can't believe Apple is using this horrible product. I would expect that computer which costs as much as this MacBook would have have come with a power adapter that would last longer than 60 days. I am now forced to quit working. Drive to the store to replace this expensive, poorly designed power adapter just to complete the work that I am doing on a Saturday afternoon. I am not a happy camper at this time.

    A major headache

    I had to replace the original power cord after I was sent my mac from deployment in Iraq (my bff got a new one) with the one I have now. This one worked great for the first few months, but with the trips to the ER and overnight stays in hospitals with my son become more regular this power cord just stopped working. So, now I am stuck in a hospital with my son and using his school computer (the school provided so they only want his school work done on it) to do my school work and email family. I don't have the money to replace this cord again or buy a new computer. I find Macs easier to use, I have been known to crash a computer (or several) with the push of a button.

    3 rd Adapter in under 1 year !

    I am SOOO upset right now.My one month old Magsafe 60 w Power Adapter just quit on my today for no reason.I never moved this thing from my desk since I got it,was extra careful with it because this one is the 3 rd I have had in under a year.
    I am seriously at my wits end with this thing.
    I have had my Toshiba Satellite adapter for over 2 years and it runs perfectly even today,also had other Lap Top adapters through the years and had NO problems.
    This product is truly a lemon and a pain in the neck for me.Just when I have to work on this computer,this power adapter bails on me.
    AWFUL product Apple and makes me think of ever spending close to 2000 on a future Mac Book Pro.

    Are you kidding me??

    No, really.. I had the original charger for 2 years and at the end it just stopped working though I'm careful with all tech things and their accessories. I bought a new one (do I have any choice to pay 87! bucks?? ) and it's already started to bug.. I have a very important project to finish, but instead of working, I'm spending an hour to make this charger work!!! what a waste of money, energy and time!! what is the warranty for it?? I know it's not the actual battery as I tried my friend's adapter and it works without ANY problem.. so I need to spend another 87... bad.. :(

    Very angry customer..

    PS. I do love apple products, I'm a huge fan, but mistakes like that r soooo frustrating.. or at least authorize some other companies to make chargers!!

    Power cable

    My first power cable broke. Bought a replacement. In less than a year, it has stopped working. So I need to buy a 3rd power cable. This is a rip off. Apple should know by now there is something wrong with the product design of the power cables and fix it. I will never buy another Apple laptop ever again.

    It's awful!

    I had to replace the original power cord for my 2009 Macbook Pro. It lasted almost two years. The model they replaced it with is this new design, and after 3 months of owning this one it has got some kind of short circuit and it keeps getting worse and worse. I have to hold the cord at a ridiculous angle for it to work. These are really poorly designed. I'm going to have to get a new one after only a few months of getting it! These cords should be redesigned so they don't bend at a weird angle when using a computer normally, which is what they do & what results in damage to the wires inside.

    Terrible

    I have only owned my Macbook Pro for a year (and I use my things very gently) and now my charger is shorting out. I buy a 1300 dollar computer, I would really like it to have a charger that works!

    96%

    Bought this power adapter today and notice that it only charges my laptop to 96% of its capacity - and the little indicator light is green, suggesting that the battery is fully charged. The charger that came with this 3 year old MacBook used to charge to 100%.
    Also, I just looked down at the bit that fits onto the side of the MacBook and noticed that the light was not on. After 'wiggling' it around, the green light has come back on.
    Does not fill me with confidence for a long and happy relationship with this power adaptor!
    Come on Apple, this piece of equipment really lets you (and us) down.

    HORRIBLE PRODUCT!

    Worst product EVER!!! I Love Apple and I own many Apple products in my house but this little piece is a piece of garbage... The one that came with my Macbook kept on overheating and finally the cable broke next to the connexion. I had to buy a new one and spend another $ 80 dollars (outrageous for just a cable) that JUST STOP WORKING in less than 2 months... REALLLY???? I AM REALLY ANGRY with this product, and the worse is that you can't just avoid it if you own a Macbook.......

    These barely last 3 months

    I'm buying another new charger - these are worthless. And yet - SO expensive.

    Another complaint....

    Like others comments here, i've bought my FIRST apple computer one year ago, and i'm already replacing my charger for an "incredible amount". For me, it will probably be the first and last apple product i have (not only for this reason).

    Macbook Pro power cord is awful

    I bought my Macbook Pro in May 2010 and it is now May 2011. While I am pleased with the notebook itself (I've dropped the thing on asphalt, for chrissakes!), the charger is disappointing. I've already replaced it twice, and now my third power cord just died. Owning four different power adapters in a year is beyond ridiculous, and I know I'm not the only one in this boat. I'm very confused as to why Apple hasn't re-engineered this charger; it is a common and acknowledged problem, and is probably only costing the company money in the end.

    AWFUL!!!

    This is the absolute worst product EVER!! I am now going to have to return yet another on. The new design must have made it a lower quality product. I am now going to be on my third one. The original charger that came with my laptop was damaged and I had to replace it. That was in May 2010. That one died in Nov 2010 and I exchange it... and here we are 6 months later and another one has bit the dust!! The Apple Store is an hour away and I have to go there every time to exchange it. I love Apple products with the exception of this. PURE GARBAGE!! C'MON APPLE!! Get with it and make a better charger! JUNK!!

    Is this REALLY an Apple product?

    A little over 1 year after purchasing my first Apple Macbook Pro, I now have to replace the charger for $80. I have owned many PC based laptops, and never before had a problem with the charger! After reading the reviews and seeing the overall low low rating other consumers have given this product, Apple it's time to listen and ACT to remedy the problem.

    WORST PRODUCT EVER

    I've had my macbook for less than a year & replaced this charger once, and just now my second one stopped working! I'm going to have to buy my THRID charger in less than 1 year. I am absolutely NOT pleased. These things are expensive and I expect something 100X better for the $80 (that has now turned into $240). SUCH a disappointment Apple.

    Apple charger bad

    I purchased an Apple laptop in June of 2010 and the charger has already torn up by April 2011. It broke at the point of where the charger attaches to the computer. i am very disappointed with this charger. I ordered another one at the expensive price of 80.00 and when I got it, it did not even work at all. I had to return it for a third charger. Apple needs to do a recall to replace these free. Mine also emitted sparks once when I tried to attach it to my computer. I am very dissatisfied with this Apple product and its price.

    break down quickly

    I thought that these new power adapters would be great and not get kinked, but I am buying my 3rd now. Not too pleased

    Very, very poor product

    These power adapters should be rock solid reliable, but in reality quite the opposite is true. I've now bought three Mac laptops (13" white Macbook, 13" aluminium body Macbook, and most recently a 13" Macbook Pro) and the power adapters for all three have failed, all within a fairly short amount of time (a year or less from new). I've bought two replacements, and I guess it's just a matter of time before they fail as well. At the price Apple charge for these units, this lack of reliability is a disgrace and does Apple no favours whatsoever.
