    Just ordered my 3rd in 4 years.

    Please improve the quality of this product ASAP. This cord is supposed to be for use with a laptop. That means it should be flexible enough to withstand repeated wrapping/winding as people travel with it. I take my laptop to school 2-3 times a week, and yes, I use the cord with it when I take it. I don't necessarily consider this an unreasonable amount of strain, and yet when I looked at my cord today, it had split open just below the MagSafe attachment and the wires were visible. I don't feel I should have to spend $80 a year to be able to charge my MacBook safely. The ONLY reason I am ordering this again is because there is no generic version available.

    literally the worst.

    i am now onto my third charger, and it's absolutely ridiculous considering they are 80$. deserves 0 stars.

    I would give it 0 stars if possible

    I have bought two of these chargers in the past year, and both of them have split and fallen apart. Its extremely frustraiting considering that they are $80. Apple needs to improve the durability of them asap.

    Absolute rubbish

    Three of these have disintegrated on me in as many years, one of which resulted in a painful electric shock. For a company that prides itself on elegant, high quality products, why is this so terribly bad?

    Poor Quality Cable

    The cable began to fray after 4 months of use. It's now been 11 months and has finally quit.

    If you plan on having this charger for longer than I did make sure you're not wrapping your cable neatly around the designated prongs and storing it in its own cushioned pocket.

    Just lay the cable flat on the ground and never, under any circumstance, touch it.

    Guess I'll spend another $80 on my $2000 ultra book...

    Did not last

    I have to replace it every year for about 4 years because the cord outside the box broke, and that happen every year with normal use. This charger have a very bad quality, apple should improve in this, make it heavy duty like the extension cord.

    Mac Book Pro Charger

    My charger's wire has been broken for quite a while but this scared me. I smelled something like burning rubber and looked over at my charger. A split in the wire was glowing bright orange. It wasn't flickering or sparking, just the wires inside were glowing orange, down towards the charging box. It's a reasonably new charger, had it for two years. Very upset.

    Power adaptor red hot

    I recently used the adaptor to charge the mac, after apx 45 minutes it was red hot. Is that normal? I've not had that experience with other power leads when charging laptops.

    Good Quality Product

    I'm not sure about all the horrible reviews, but I got just over 5 years of use with my charger before it started to break and fray around the top. I move it between plugs all the time around my house and am not overly gentle with it. I don't think it's bad that I need to replace it after 5 years, especially after my previous PC computer needed replacement cords every 8 months.

    Volatile technology.

    I bought my first power adapter and enjoyed how it lasted me the duration of time I spent in community college before biting the dust. After it stopped working I spent the money on a new one around Christmas time. I haven't even made it through January and this cable did the same thing. The wire is destroyed and I'm not sure how (or why, because I take care of my technology). It looks like the wire explodes without rhyme or reason with no way to fix it at home. I am not incredibly satisfied with the volatile nature of this product. I would expect a more durable piece of equipment for the price they put on this product. I enjoy my mac, but I'm not interested in constantly spending an outlandish amount of money for a piece of equipment that is, at best, less than dependable.

    Utter rubbish

    I take great care of my laptop. I also take great care of the charging cable and always make a point of not wrapping it up when putting it away. Yet after less than one year the cable is split and internal wiring is clearly visible. And now I have to spend £65 on a new identical poor quality charger. Sort it out Apple, I give you way too much money already.

    New design, PLEASE!

    My MagSafe Power Adapter is destroyed after 4 years of having my Mac... I guess I've been lucky that it didn't happen before.
    Anyway... it's still quite painful having to pay $79 + taxes for this product... So overpriced as usual in Apple products.

    Bad quality

    I have some pretty old laptops (HP, ASUS, DELL), and I've never had to replace power adapters on any of those laptops. The 60W magsafe of my Macbook though broke--the wire broke just outside the small white box. So, I had to replace it. I wasn't going to pay over $100 for a new Apple one, so I bought a generic one. I was expecting a good quality power adapter from Apple, but now I am quite disappointed. Apple should really improve the quality of this product. Shame on Apple if they don't.

    Always frays

    The apple charger always frays and becomes a hazard to myself and the laptop. Not a good product

    It broke again

    The cable of this charger is so easy to brake and the price is so expansive that I considere it completely inappropriate to sell such a bad quality product at such a price.

    Better than the old one, still awful

    I've had to buy 4 of these in as many years, and probably just as many of the old "t-style" adapters for my previous laptop. I'm constantly fretting over the amount of strain imposed on them in the course of typical daily use and they STILL break. Easily a worst-in-class product. Magnetic attachment is a fine idea but the minimal benefit brought by this innovation is utterly overshadowed by the wretchedly abysmal engineering. It's just too flimsy to be usable, and as expensive as these are they certainly aren't trivial to replace. you'd think apple would perhaps let you detach and replace just the magnetic cord part that seems to be constantly breaking, but no - after over 10 years of essentially the same design there's still the same issued.

    These chargers are trash. $80 worth of trash

    Today I will be going to buy my 3rd one. I barely made a year. Your chargers are expensive and trash! I feel like a scam is being ran on me and I shouldnt feel that way as a loyal customer. Do you guys wrap the wires with sticky tack?! This isnt a "handle your product better, people" issue. This is a make a better charger for Current and new macbooks(because I know how yall are) or im going to switch back to PC. This is such an inconvenience on productivity.

    If there was an option for 0 stars, I'd pick that.

    This is my second charger and it took only a year for the wire to fray. I think it's the actual design of the charger that causes it to break like this. Really disappointed.
